Finn Balor Talks Demon King Persona

Reigning NXT Champion Finn Balor will defend his title against Karrion Kross, during night two of NXT Takeover: Stand & Deliver. Before Thursday’s Championship bout, Finn sat down for an interview with WWE Now India, and spoke about his “Demon King” alter ego. Balor talked about why a reversion to the character “would be a step back”, explaining:

“Yeah, I think as soon as Karrion Kross came to NXT, people kind of had this idea of a dream scenario of Karrion Kross versus The Demon. The battle of the two entrances and the battle of the two darker characters. For me in this moment in my career, I feel like The Demon would be a step back. I feel like right now with my ring work as The Prince I feel very comfortable, I feel very controlled, I feel very confident, and I feel that’s the direction I have to go at TakeOver”.

The two-time NXT Champion, as well as two-time Intercontinental Champion continued the interview, and gave a look into what the WWE Universe may see from him instead. Balor told WWE Now:

“So I don’t wanna let anyone down. In the moment [facing Kross], there’s gonna be no Demon, but there’s gonna be a very, very dark side of The Prince that is gonna meticulously take apart Karrion Kross”.
