A video has been going round the WWE universe of NXT superstar Finn Balor teasing the fans that he's set for a debut on Monday Night Raw this week.
If we consider the recent developments with the introduction of the Bullet club to WWE, together with the sudden NXT title change, Balor's statement serves as further confirmation that he is heading for Monday Night Raw.
This leaves us with many eventualities that could occur upon his debut.

Will Finn Balor reunite with the Bullet Club? If so, will he assume leadership and cost AJ Styles the championship at WWE Payback?
With the reformation of the Bullet Club, this could present a 2016 version of the 2002 NWO invasion storyline, with the stable dominating the roster and feuding with other major stables in the roster such as the League Of Nations & The Wyatt Family.
Considering the mistakes and missed opportunities that that angle brought, this could be WWE’s second chance to get it right and use them in a creatively compelling way.
WWE has nailed it in the past with great factions such as DX, Evolution and The Shield, where the members were able to operate as a unit, as well as, get over with the crowd on their own individual merits.
One potential scenario from the debut of Balor that arises could be that he gets placed in the WWE title picture.
Assuming that AJ Styles defeats Roman Reigns at WWE Payback, we could see a divide in the Bullet club, considering that Styles & Balor have both been leaders of the faction on different occasions respectively.
This could culminate in a rivalry between the two for leadership of the stable, and of course, competition to become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
