During a recent interview with Digital Spy, NXT Champion Finn Balor was asked, among other things, about the “Demon” persona Balor said
I feel like The Demon was supposed to be a one-off in Tokyo Dome, Japan and it grew into this completely separate entity that for some time I had control over and then eventually it just kind of spun out of control.
I was trying to please too many people and not pleasing myself. I feel like I lost a grip on what the character was and what I was utilising it for.
I feel like the main element that The Demon had was the element of surprise and I feel like we lost that in a sense and it became more like a crutch for Finn.”
When Finn was asked if WWE fans should expect to see The Demon again he commented
I feel like there’s a time and place for everything but right now I feel like The Demon character is something that would maybe be a step in the wrong direction for what I’ve done over the last 11 months in NXT.
So there will be a time and a place where we get The Demon versus Bray Wyatt, where we get The Demon versus Braun Strowman, where we get The Demon versus Brock Lesnar, but right now I’m interested in defending the NXT Championship
The Demon is definitely a sight to see but as Finn himself noted, he seems to be doing just fine in NXT without him
