Finn Balor Says There Is “Still Life” in The Demon Character

Last updated

WWE Superstar Finn Balor recently appeared on Ryan Satin’s Out of Character podcast. The former NXT Champion discussed a number of topics during his time on the show, including his Demon character that has not been seen in quite some time on WWE programming.

“I remember when I signed with WWE, a lot of people said, ‘You can forget about doing those crazy entrances'” Finn Balor began on the show. “So I was in NXT about a month and Triple H came to me and said, ‘Talk to me about this painting and what it’s all about.'”

“I explained it to him in the terms of how I had been using it on the Independent level as a spectacular entrance; the spontaneous moments that could be changed depending on the location or the opponent” Balor continued.

“For WWE, they really needed to make it as part of the character; not like ‘it’s cool’ but more to ‘why do you transform from Finn to Demon'” Balor noted. “That’s when we developed the dark side of the Balor character and Finn being the good side of the character.”

“It was an evolution and I’m not really sure, looking back, if that’s how I wanted it to be handled” Balor revealed. “Or, if it got too far from where it was or if it made it better, I don’t really know. In ten years’ time, looking back, I might go ‘we did it right’ or ‘we messed it up,’ I don’t know yet.”

“There’s still some life left in the Demon character” Finn Balor concluded. “But right now I’m happy being the Prince and I feel like this is my most true self in my WWE tenure.”
