Heyman is blind.
Nah, the way they buried him on commentary last week, they realized they had to make him seem credible for Brock.

I think Heyman kayfabe wants him to win because he'd be the easiest to beat and lost to a 50% Reigns the week before.

Hell, he looks smaller than your average WFer and was dwarfed in height and size by Brock's freaking out of shape advocate. The WWE have a screw loose if they really think people buy into someone as small as Balor pushing Brock :lmao

In no particular order, AJ, Brock, Nakamura, Rollins, Roman, Orton, Neville, Joe, Cesaro, Zayn, KO, Bate and Dunne are all well ahead IMHO. Those are names just off the top of my head, there's probably several more who belong in that list.

That's just in the WWE, probably another 20-30 in NJPW and the indys which belong in that list as well.

I agreed with everything except Orton but then again, Orton can be good when he wants to be.

Heyman to Balor:

"I'm supposed to put you over before you win the Fatal 5 way match so it seems like a big deal that you're facing Lesnar."

Orton is one of the smoothest wrestlers to ever step foot in a wrestling ring.
I kind of forgot since it's been a while since we've seen that Orton.

it's extreme rules, balor will go all ambrose and hit brock with something a couple times before brock smashes him because he'll refuse to sell for more than 45 seconds again

But yeah, I don't think it's fair to say he's "the best" ring worker on the roster. He's certainly great in his own right, but nearly every other top talent has had an otherworldly match at some point.

Styles had his match with Cena at SS.

Rollins had the Triple threat at the 2015 RR.

Zayn had Nakamura at Takeover, and vice versa.

Even Reigns had Lesnar at 'Mania 2015.

I could go on...

Until Balor has at least one of these "otherworldly" career defining matches, I don't think he can be credited as "the best".

Which is hilarious considering how much they were burying him last week against Roman.

Putting emphasis on Roman being a heavyweight throughout :reigns2
I don't think it was burying him. I read a report today that Vince himself was asking the commentary team to bring up his size cos Vince wants Balor to be presented as a great underdog.

So by your logic AJ would be completely unrealistic against Lesnar cause his the same height as balor?

Embarrassing seeing Heyman trying to put him over as a threat & not an "underdog" lol

AJ shouldn't go over Brock, but he still has the skill and attributes to make it interesting.

What exactly does Finn have over Brock?
