My immediate reaction: Reports are claiming that Balor might have rolled his ankle, leading to the title change, but that it could also possibly just be an angle and not a legitimate injury. Either way, we have a new champion, and honestly, I'm not upset about it at all. I'm a bigger fan of Finn Balor than Samoa Joe and it makes sense to have the title change hands on a TakeOver event rather than a house show, but every so often, doing a title change on a random live event can spice things up. If the injury is true, then that's all the more reason to just go with the punches and try something different. Samoa Joe is the best person suited to take the title and to feud with other people like Austin Aries and Shinsuke Nakamura going forward, and I just hope that Balor isn't actually injured, as that would really suck.
