Finn Balor is making the media rounds to promote his WWE NXT Title defense against Karrion Kross at Thursday’s NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver from Orlando, Florida at the Capitol Wrestling Center.
He spoke with ITNWWE.com for a new interview and during it, he opened up on his ‘Demon’ character as many fans have expressed interest in seeing him portray the character once again especially in such a dark yet intense rivalry with Kross.
He made this character famous outside of WWE as he would use the alter-ego for big time matches. However, Balor feels like the character wouldn’t help him at this time.
Balor started out by stating that once Kross came to NXT, people wanted the dream scenario of Kross versus The Demon because it would be a battle of the two entrances as well as a battle between 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,” Balor stated. “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.”
Balor also talked about the title defense, TakeOver, and more. Check out the full interview here.
