They should have just let Rollins win it since it made more sense for him to hold it until HHH betrays him at say Clash of Champions in more shocking fashion therefore handing Owens the win.

Made no sense for Balor to win it at all to me.

Balor was white hot at the time, the fans were really into him and the demon. This was fresh off of his callup, they actually went with who the fans wanted.

As for how long his reign would've lasted, probably until the royal rumble where Brock would've beaten him.

Usually they would build a crowd favorite star and take their time who's deadly over with the crowd if they don't decide to cool them off so to me it was definitely a one off.

Up until Brock decided that he wanted it.

My guess is he would have lost it to Owens or Jericho around December so they could get squash by Goldberg in March, or he loses it to Brock Lesnar At the Royal Rumble.

Yeah I think he holds until Brock took it from him for the Goldberg match or Owens takes it from him thanks to Jericho rumble time as well. Good question though.



IT FUCKING HAPPENED

Think it was reported that he would drop the belt to Owens at the next ppv.
