Finn Balor Says ‘The Demon’ Will Not Be At Royal Rumble
Balor Will Show Up As The Man, Not The Demon
Finn Balor’s states his ‘Demon’ character will not be making an appearance this Sunday at Royal Rumble.
In an interview with ESPN, Balor explains that he used his ‘Demon’ character as a crutch, and plans to face Brock Lesnar this Sunday as Finn Balor, the man.
“I feel like maybe I leaned on the demon too much there in the past as a crutch, and I can assure you that the man who faces Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble will be Finn Balor, the man. I think a lot of people were surprised when I came out at WrestleMania not in demon paint but I feel like I had a bigger message to spread that day — one of equality and acceptance. Honestly, this match just kind of came about so fast that I haven’t had much time to think about it. I don’t have any new gear, I don’t have any new looks, I don’t have any new ideas right now, but you know, we’re still six days away, so I’m sure I’ll come up with something.”
Balor’s last appearance as ‘The Demon’ was last year’s Summerslam against Baron Corbin.
Finn Balor faces Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship this Sunday at Royal Rumble in Phoenix, AZ at Chase Field.
