• Finn Balor Blames WWE For His Demon Gimmick Not Working

While speaking on Vicente Beltrán of ViBe & Wrestling, NXT Champion Finn Balór discussed why the “Demon” gimmick didn’t work on the WWE main roster.

Below is what he said:

“The ‘Demon’ was designed as something special. It was one of those things that should have been saved for breathtaking occasions, but it ended up being advertised in the media and that was one of the main reasons why it didn’t work.

The surprise factor was completely gone and the ‘Demon’ became Finn Balor’s savior, which was also to my detriment because I could not develop my own character separate from the ‘Demon’. I think it hurt both of us, Finn Balor and the ‘Demon’.”

He added that he would still like to use it at an event like WrestleMania.

“I think in a way it was designed for those kinds of occasions and I think that both, the fans and myself, would enjoy it much more.”
