Below are some top WWE & UFC news of the day:
– Finn Balor was unstoppable at one point, when he used his “The Demon” alter-ego in matches, but that isn’t the case anymore.
At Extreme Rules 2021, Roman Reigns defeated The Demon to retain the Universal Championship.
At WrestleMania 39, Edge defeated The Demon in a Hell in a Cell match.
According to The Wrestling Blog, WWE wants to fix their mistake with The Demon gimmick:
“Some people at WWE wanna give it a try once again to Demon Balor, they want to fix all the mistakes they have done to making that Demon version constantly losing since his main roster debut.”
