Finn Balor will never main event a WrestleMania says WWE Hall of Famer

The first post-Draft Monday Night Raw was a big one for a number of reasons, including Sasha Banks winning the Women's Title and a new championship being announced.

And then there is the third reason, Finn Balor, who made his main roster debut and was completely over with the crowd immediately as he won a fatal four-way and then pinned Roman Reigns clean all on his first night. 

That win over Reigns will see Balor take on Seth Rollins in a co-main event at SummerSlam. However, according to Ric Flair, Balor will never headline a WrestleMania.

Speaking on the latest edition of his podcast, 'The Ric Flair Show' via Wrestling Inc, the WWE Hall of Famer made the outrageous claim.

"If I'm looking at what's going to draw money, what I would pay to see, I would pay to see Dolph against Ambrose before I'd pay to see Finn Bálor against Seth Rollins, so I think it's phenomenal," Flair started off as saying.

"I just think you've got a legitimate heavyweight in Seth Rollins, a legitimate heavyweight in Roman Reigns, and I don't think we'll ever see the day, and I could be totally wrong, that a cruiserweight will ever main event a WrestleMania."

This is some seriously short-sighted thinking from Flair. While one can accept that he is very old-school in his beliefs, we are in a new era where it has been proven time and time again that smaller superstars can succeed in the WWE.

Daniel Bryan headlined WrestleMania 30 in one of the best main events in the past 10 years and he is 5ft 8in. People don't care about height or look anymore. 

"He's of that [cruiserweight] size. I mean, if you look at the two of them side by side, he [has] got a great physique, gosh, but he's smaller," Flair added.

Finn Balor is massively over with the WWE Universe. That's all he needs to succeed. Not the opinion of a past it veteran.
