Seth Rollins takes on Finn Balor at next weekend's SummerSlam event in one of the most anticipated Championship matches in recent years.
The duo have not faced each other in WWE before and the match between them is now considered to be one of this era's fantasy matches. Many of the WWE Universe are finding it hard to decide who will come out on top in Brooklyn, but now it seems that Seth Rollins is the current odds on favourite.
Rumours last week suggested that Finn Balor was set to be the one who lifts the Universal Championship for the first time, especially given that he has an impressive win/loss record as The Demon, but given Rollins record for making history, it was always going to be a close call.

ROLLINS VS THE DEMON
This week on Raw WWE made the huge gamble to have Seth Rollins deliver an in-ring promo alone without any interference as well as keeping Finn Balor off live TV. WWE instead had Finn film a video package where he explained the origins of his name as well as confirming that Rollins will be facing The Demon next weekend.
The Demon has not been seen on WWE TV since the draft with WWE instead allowing Finn to debut as himself. It will be interesting to see how WWE's mainstream audience reacts to The Demon and if he is as over as he was in NXT.
Even with The Demon making an appearance the odds currently have Seth Rollins currently at -195 whilst Finn Balor is on +155 with just 10 days to do until their showdown next Sunday night.
FACE/HEEL TURN PLANNED?
Current speculation suggests that WWE could have a huge face/heel turned planned for the match between Rollins and Balor.
It is thought that Rollins could be set to turn face if he wins the Championship with Balor finally turning heel and finally being joined by his Bullet Club teammates Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows.
This has been speculated since the WWE draft since AJ Styles headed over to SmackDown Live and his version of The Club was split, next Sunday night would be the perfect way for this to happen and it would open up a new chapter for Balor and The Club heading into Raw's exclusive pay-per-view event entitled Clash of the Champions on September 25th.
