WWE’s apparent plan for Finn Balor at Summerslam

Finn Balor

Finn Balor recently lost his Intercontinental Title to Shinsuke Nakamura and is now booked in a feud against a returning Bray Wyatt. Balor will be taking a break from WWE following Summerslam and he is also booked for a match at the Smackville event.

Bray Wyatt’s dismantle of Finn Balor led fans to believe that the two competitors will have an all-out war at Summerslam. However, according to a report by Brad Shepard, there is a chance we might not be seeing Finn Balor as the Demon King at the event.

I’m told the current plan is for Finn Balor to NOT portray the ‘Demon’ character when he loses to Bray Wyatt at #WWE SummerSlam.

Perhaps WWE will have something interesting in store for their feud this time around.

    And you have actual authority on this? Though I believe the proper phrase is “Bray Wyatt will be…”, the term “is” shows action and presence, “will” is for any type of future action. The match has yet to take place.

  • Matt Hendrix

    Bray Wyatt is beating Balor whither he is the demon or not

  • Matt Hendrix

    Dave Meltzer originally said he was going to be the demon and then went back on his statement the same dude that said Bischoff will not be part of creative for SD and the Bichoff called him out on being a bs reporter, Dave Meltzer isnt that reliable of a reporter honestly Sean Ross Sapp is better reporter than Dave Meltzer cuz he actually get stuff right

  • Matt Hendrix

    also this is the same WWE that wasted a potential great feud with Sanity/New Day right out of the gate did one match with them and just forgot about the team who beat the New Day and if the Demon is good enough for Baron Corbin and Bobby Lashley (who all beat Balor leading up to their matches) then the Demon is good enough for Bray Wyatt

  • Matt Hendrix

    did you read Bray’s tweet after he attacked Balor? He here to finish what he start
    “I’ll forgive you, when it’s done brother.

    The sickness is gone.

    We owe them.

    And Yowie Wowie is it gonna be a spectacle!!!”
    Thats what he said he is refereeing to the canceled TLC match because of Wyatt getting sick now they have a chance to finish that storyline

  • Keith Learmonth

    It’s not, though. Even Finn, on Smackdown, said he’s not sure if this is revenge for the past, or something new.

  • Matt Hendrix

    because its the final match of a feud that was never finished, Bray got sick so the match was pulled, Bray and Finn want to finish this story its time for the Demon to lose everybody beats normal Finn Balor but imagine the kayfabe power the Fiend would hold as his first match back and he beats the Demon

  • Matt Hendrix

    The Demon was devalued when they brought it out for Baron Corbin and Bobby Lashley

  • d

    Agree I would book Demon vs Fiend at Survivor Series when Balor returns from his time off. Use Wyatt to write Balor off TV

  • Soulshroude

    “When he looses”? Don’t you mean, “IF”? Hell of a spoiler there, Shepard.

  • CC

    No, because right now due to being underutilsed and coming off two losses to Nakamura, beating the Demon means NOTHING.
    If it is true that Balor is taking time off, then Wyatt needs to put Balor on the shelf, not the Demon. If he beats the Demon now while Balor is on a losing streak of sorts as well, that will just devalue the whole Demon gimmick and pretty much kill it off.

    What should happen is Balor gets put on the shelf by Wyatt, then in a few months time when Balor is ready to return, WWE starts airing short vignettes of The Demon and Balor, and maybe have him do some surprise attacks etc.
    Balor can then have a few matches with other wrestlers, where he wins (which builds him back up). And finally it ends up in a Demon vs Fiend match, and then and only then should Wyatt get the win.

  • Keith Learmonth

    Why? Why not draw the feud out for a while, make it seem like Balor’s going to win when he brings the Demon, -then- pull the trigger on the Demon losing? Why should they rush it and waste it at Summerslam?

  • Keith Learmonth

    Good.
    Focus on the long term build. Don’t waste Demon vs Fiend in the first match.

    I swear, people need to stop with the constant need for instant gratification.

  • d

    He should return from his absence as the Demon vs Wyatt after they use wyatt to write Balor off tv

  • Matt Hendrix

    He is undefeated on the main roster but The Fiend beating the Demon at SummerSlam is what should happen

  • R.T. Red

    Was there a rumor that he was going to portray the demon at Summerslam? Or is this article killing two birds with one stone? I thought the rumors were saying he’d be the demon permanently after he returned from his hiatus.

  • BB

    Oops, my bad.

  • Reality check

    Demon balor isn’t undefeated and was beaten as the demon in nxt.

  • BB

    I think they should have him wrestle as the Demon. What better way to elevate the revamped Wyatt by making him beat the yet undefeated Demon Bálor.
