Despite it making all the sense in the world for the Fiend Bray Wyatt to take on the Demon Finn Balor at SummerSlam, it’s being reported that Finn Balor will be in his normal human gimmick for their expected match.
Bray Wyatt finally returned to Raw this past week, attacking Balor after his match with Samoa Joe, and seemingly set up a feud between the two men.
Writing in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer pointed out that while the Finn vs Bray match is the plan, Balor is not scheduled for a paint job.
‘Finn Balor is not at this point slated to be The Demon.’
It was recently reported that Balor has asked for some time away from WWE which will supposedly start following SummerSlam, so no points for guessing who is winning this one.
With three weeks to go until SummerSlam, there is plenty of time for plans to change, but at this moment in time it seems fans of the Demon gimmick are set to be disappointed in Toronto.
