Earlier this week, it was reported that Vince McMahon may have soured on Balor for the match, and plans for the Royal Rumble title match are up in the air at the moment.

Barrasso notes a source said Vince McMahon sees Balor as ‘bland’ when he is not using his ‘Demon King’ persona. The report noted Balor could be seen as transitioning into a ‘newer version’ of Dolph Ziggler where he has great matches, but isn’t rewarded with a main event spot, and the office doesn’t have faith in him in that role.
