Finn Balor has confirmed that he is interested in becoming The Demon again in WWE one day.
The Irishman has not acted as his demonic alter ego since defeating Andrade at WWE Super ShowDown in June 2019. He has become a new character, The Prince, during his time on NXT for the past 17 months.
Talking about Ryan Satin Out of place Podcast, Balor said he is “very happy” acting as The Prince right now. However, he does not rule out the return of The Demon in the future.
“It was just a kind of evolution,” Balor said. “I’m not really sure if, looking back, this is how I wanted it.” [The Demon] to be handled, if it strayed too far from what it was, or if it did better. I really do not know. I think maybe 10 years from now we’ll look back and say, ‘We did well’ or ‘We blew it.’ I do not know yet.
“There’s still some life left in the character of The Demon, sure. Right now, I’m very happy to be The Prince. I feel like, like I said before, this is the closest thing to my true self in my WWE tenure, so I’m very happy. “
Two-time NXT Champion Finn Balor has held the title for more days combined (504) than anyone in NXT history. He’s set to challenge Karrion Kross for the NXT Championship on Tuesday’s episode of NXT.
Introducing Finn Balor as The Demon
As Finn Balor alluded to, he’s not sure if The Demon’s performance will be fondly remembered by WWE fans.
The 39-year-old was warned when he joined WWE that he would not be allowed to wear face paint or have elaborate tickets. NXT founder Triple H suggested to Balor that he should use both as part of his WWE personality, leading to the creation of The Demon.
Finn Balor competed in 14 matches as The Demon between 2014 and 2019. His only loss as a character came in June 2016 when he lost to Samoa Joe at NXT TakeOver: The End.
