Edge defeating "The Demon" Finn Balor

Great match; wrong outcome.

What the fuck does a victory do for Edge? Make him more of a Hall of Famer?

A victory for "The Demon" Finn Balor over Edge in the Hell in a Cell could have possibly ignited Finn and put everyone on notice.

But he goes down to a 50 year old triple neck fusion Edge and Finn will continue to whimper on by even though he's supposed to be the leader of Judgment Day. His Demon persona now meaning less. Why even bring the Demon into it if you are just going to have him job out? Could have accomplished that with just Finn and Edge could have gotten the retribution.

Just stupid booking.

Utter. Fucking. Stupid. Booking.

I’m not really into what Edge is doing, but Balor is the weakest member of Judgment Day. Edge going over keeps him protected for when he does put someone over. He’s only done a couple of jobs since being back, and that’s probably the right thing. Balor also beat Edge earlier. The face winning in the end makes sense.

Balor was also injured, and I don't mean the cut. He wrestled that match with a torn calf.

normally I'd agree here, but WWE has a decision to make with Judgement Day. Balor really is the weakest member of the group even though he is the leader. I would say Dom is the hottest guy in Judgement Day. I hate repeating storylines right away, but they kind of have to give Dom the ball and make him the leader and kick Finn out.

And the feud with Edge had to come to a close at Mania and there's no way Edge wasn't winning with that they did to him and Beth months before. So it sort of made sense for closure. But now where do they go with Finn from here? It's inevitable for Dom's character to want to take over leadership from Finn

we'll see

Finn’s fine. I think he and Priest will go after the tag belts at some point this year. I’d like to see him face Santos Escobar at Backlash, but I can just see him buzzing around what Dominik & Priest/Rhea do.

Edge has won every fued he has been in since he came back except vs Roman, and a match against Orton when he tore his tricep, which was likely an audible as it was a taped match in front of 0 fans.

Also don't understand how people see Dom going for the leader role when he isn't exactly winning anything either. His story is hot for sure, or was, cuz Im not sure where he goes now after jobbing to his dad and then being stuck in a bad bunny showcase match. But I'm not seeing a scenario where the kid who got beat up by his dad makes sense as a better leader than the guy who just finished a HIAC match against a legend with his head split in half and a torn calf.

You want to change leaders then it needs to be Rhea. Evil Mami.

Edge over Finn just leaves a “now what?” vibe. Edge goes away until his next feud, The Demon character takes another loss and Finn/Judgment Day continues seemingly like nothing has changed, I guess because nothing has. These are the bits of the story that wrestling misses out more often than not; little to no consequence for wins/losses.

Can see Judgment Day being split in the Draft (despite other teams being drafted as one).

I'm not convinced Edge was planned to go over Balor originally. I mean really what does Edge do now? Who does he feud with? Does he stay out until it's almost time for Christian to return and then come back and set something up? I dunno.

This is possible. Could see Balor/Priest on RAW as a tag team and Dom going over to SD with Rhea because she's the champ there.

Edge is supposed to be special. I don’t feel like he comes off that way — to me anyway — but it’s supposed to be a big deal when he loses. I can see him and Austin Theory doing something. Edge taking up for the legends Theory disrespects. That could be how they segue into Edge vs. Cena.

Balor is a win some/lose some kind of guy. I’d put Santos Escobar over him at Backlash. I don’t think it matters if Rey & Bad Bunny beat Domian either. They’re kind of chickenshits.

At 41 years old, I think we might just have to accept that this what Finn Balor is in WWE. He’s occasionally spooky Dolph Ziggler.

In my head I had Rhea kicking both Finn and Dom out of Judgement Day after WM because "they couldn't get it done like she did".

Of course, at that point Judgement Day is just her and Priest, which is not really a stable anymore. I wasn't sure who I would have brought in as "replacements".

Dom would have become "more pathetic and annoying" and be desperately trying to blame his dad for it all while trying to find new friends.

Didn't have a plan for Finn either. He just goes away for a while.

Judgement Day is one of Raw's best things going. Sure, Balor is the 'leader' but it isn't the role to use everyone for his own ambition.

I wouldn’t mind repackaging Corbin into Judgment Day, taking advantage of what they were doing with him post-JBL. Also Karrion Kross and Scarlett as they seem a little rudderless at the minute. Maybe the platform gives them the opportunity to “break out” on their own again if the crowd gets behind them.

Don't really get the IWC mentality that the old guy has to give the rub every time. I think Edge winning was fine. Some matches are made to beef up a card, not to necessarily have some long development future plan. Finn will just probably go for the tag titles with Priest this summer and all will be fine.

I don't think the old guy has to give the rub every time either. The issue with Edge is that he's been back 3 years and he's basically given the rub to no one. He lost to the champ....and Orton? That's it I think.

If you put everyone over then you wont be able to out anyone over. If edge is to go under it should be to someone unmade.

Part of me thinks they went with the “right person wins” with every match aside from the Main Event so that when Cody didn’t win it hit even harder. It was one of the better cards for the “could go either way” results though.

I kind of like the group as it is now. I can see the reasoning behind Corbin. I’m not totally against it. Kross is pretty awful. I have to squint to see that one.

Finn Balor is a bucket with holes at the bottom. You can pour as much water as you want in there but it is never going to stay full.

He was the first champion and they made a big deal out of what a big achievement it is. He has been around for years. He’s not going to magically catch fire when nothing about him has really changed. I guess he wears leather pants and mainly reps purple now.

To be fair I see Edge's current run a bit differently. After 9 years out and not knowing he could ever do this again, it's more a career relaunch. Had he been full time for the last 25 years I'd probably see it differently, but he deserves some big wins and moments before he winds down for good.
