We have not seen “The Demon” Finn Balor since his return to NXT in 2019. With his main event match with Karrion Kross looming, Balor has revealed if he plans to break out the body paint.
In a recent interview with WWE Now India, Balor said he thinks “The Demon” would be a step back for his career. Thus, The Demon won’t return tonight at NXT Takeover: Stand and Deliver. Here is the quote, courtesy of ITN Sports:
“As soon as Karrion Kross came to NXT, people kinda 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. But for me, in this moment of 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. And I feel that’s the direction I have to go at Takeover. So I don’t wanna let anyone down. In the moments, there’s gonna be no Demon. But there’s gonna be the very dark side of The Prince that is gonna meticulously take apart Karrion Kross.”
Finn Balor will defend his NXT Championship against Karrion Kross tonight at NXT Takeover Stand and Deliver.
