Finn Balor to form a new tag team or a new rivalry with AJ Styles?

Balor rolled back to the spotlight recently following his feud with Roman Reigns on Friday Night SmackDown. He even challenged Reigns for the Universal Championship at Extreme Rules. Despite putting up a great fight, Balor lost to Reigns.

But now that he is back on Raw, this could launch a new feud between Finn Balor and AJ Styles. Styles and Balor are considered two of the best talents in WWE right now.

Balor came up against Styles back in 2017 at the TLC PPV. It was the only time that these two came face to face with each other. Finn Balor defeated AJ Styles then and holds the bragging rights in that particular encounter.

With Balor’s arrival on Raw, we might witness some more matches between these two superstars if WWE plans to develop a rivalry between them.

If not rivals, then maybe a tag team? Finn Balor and AJ Styles were both associated with The Bullet Club back in their New Japan Pro-Wrestling days. It was Styles who took over the leadership of the group when Balor left NJPW in 2014.
