12. Popular Act Returning At SummerSlam 2017, WWE Didn’t Want To Release Eva Marie
– Popular Act Returning At SummerSlam 2017
As we have noted before, former Universal Champion Finn Balor will face the former WWE Champion Bray Wyatt at SummerSlam 2017. To battle “The Eater of Worlds”, Balor is expected to bring “The Demon” gimmick back at SummerSlam 2017.
Speaking of “The Demon” gimmick, Balor has only done this act twice on the main roster (once on an episode of Raw prior to SummerSlam 2016 and then in a match against Seth Rollins at SummerSlam 2016 where he became the inaugural Universal Champion). Balor is yet to use this gimmick since his return from injury earlier this year.

Eva Marie is no longer a part of WWE. According to The Dirty Sheets, Eva Marie parting ways with WWE was entirely Eva’s decision and that the WWE officials didn’t want to release her.
