Twitter Commemorates WWE Giving Title Belts to Everyone Except Finn Balor

As we near the end of the horror show that was 2018 and approach what’s sure to be an even worse year in 2019, Twitter has taken to commemorating some 2018 highlights in “moments.” One such “moment” commemorated Wednesday was WWE handing out championship belts to pretty much every major sports star on the planet… except their own Finn Balor, who still does not have a championship belt, much to the chagrin of the WWE Universe.

Here’s a championship belt WWE sent to the Eagles after they won the Superbowl back in February, around the same time Balor lasted nearly an hour in the Men’s Royal Rumble match only to return immediately to languishing in the mid-card.

And in May, WWE sent championship belts to Manchester City FC for their victories in the Premier League. Just two days after these tweets, Finn Balor would not even have a match on the card at WWE Backlash.

In June, it was both the Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals and NBA champion Golden State Warriors who received WWE Championship belts, unlike Finn Balor, who was used as merely an accessory for Braun Strowman’s Money in the Bank ladder match win that same month.

While in July, Real Madrid CF received belts for winning the Champions League while Finn Balor fought Baron Corbin at Extreme Rules and won with a roll-up.

In September, after Finn Balor defeated Corbin again at August’s SummerSlam, WWE sent championship belts to the London Spitfire, champions of the Overwatch League (a competitive video game league).

Later that month, after Balor was left completely off the card of Hell in the Cell, WWE sent belts to WNBA champs the Seattle Storm.

October saw the World Series champions, the Boston Red Sox, walk away with belts while Balor failed to appear at the Australian Super Showdown PPV.

As 2018 comes to a close, Finn Balor has still not been awarded a championship belt by WWE. As 2019 begins, perhaps he would have better luck taking up another sport, such as competitive video gaming?

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
