News on Jason Jordan's Push & Balor Being Considered as Ambrose Replacement

-- Finn Balor and Jason Jordan were the names being considered to replace Dean Ambrose in the tag team slot alongside Seth Rollins. Ultimately, it was chosen to go with Jordan which meant stalling or perhaps even halting his heel turn and turn his character around into a top babyface. Balor meanwhile seems to have absolutely nothing going on with his character.

-- With Jordan needing to be pushed a legitimate top guy, there really was no other choice but to have him and Rollins win the tag team titles from Cesaro & Sheamus as a way to establish his credibility after weeks of pushing him as a whiny mid-card face.
