Finn Balor says the Demon won’t be at the Royal Rumble

Finn Balor

Ever since Finn Balor won a Fatal-4-Way match last week on Monday Night Raw, earning a shot at Brock Lesnar and the Universal Championship at WWE Royal Rumble, the WWE Universe has been wondering if we would see the Demon make an appearance.

Some of Balor’s biggest victories have occurred while he donned the Demon paint, and fans expected to see him break out the big guns for his Universal Championship opportunity. In an interview with ESPN, however, the former champion revealed that wasn’t the case.

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.

Balor will challenge Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship at WWE Royal Rumble, this Sunday, January 27th.

    Strowman beating Brock clean.

    I felt the same way about the 3 faces of Foley

  • Kristopher Robinson

    This is the perfect storyline to take the title off of Brock! Balor is the best guy on any WWE roster to hold the title. Hes easily as gift, if not better, than any wrestler of his or most generations. What would be better, than seeing Balor beat Brock clean?!

    Well he has only wrestled a handful of matches on the main roster as the demon, and one of them was a total squash match against Corbin. So not exactly a record most people care about.

    Yes I know to samoan joe, but he’s never lost as demon on main roster. and his demon is a special attraction in a way and I just dont see wwe making him loose as demon to Lesnar, and that’s why it hasn’t been advertised as “the beast vs the deom”

  • Armitage Soulshroude

    Balor only uses the “demon” once a year. So his (Balor) statement is under a false pretense. The only reason why Balor is headlining is because the WWE has no one else and Braun is still injured. This is a bad storyline just to take the belt off of Brock.

  • Sparti Love

    Who cares.. it’s just paint.. nothing else changes. I wish he had a slightly different moveset and finisher. Even his entrance is basically the same. I don’t get the appeal

  • Greg Bush

    Well, he did lose as the Demon in NXT.

  • HBK

    Hes never lost a match as the demon and WWE wants to keep it that way, that’s why at the rumble finn balor is taking a loss in order to keep his “deom” win streak undefeated!!!

  • Mike the Ike

    That’s beyond stupid. It needs to be the Beast vs the Demon.
