Finn Balor left “sad” for not having the much-discussed “Fiend vs. Demon” match with Bray Wyatt

Since his debut in WWE, Finn Balor has been a fantastic athlete and one of the fan favorites on the roster. Fans acknowledge him for his intense rivalry with big names like Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, and Bray Wyatt.

Sadly, Bray Wyatt unexpectedly passed away last month. Fans were highly anticipating a brutal gimmick face-off (Fiend vs. Demon) between Balor and Wyatt as there were many rumors of Bray returning to the ring.

Finn Balor reveals discussion with Bray Wyatt for “Fiend vs. Demon” match

Finn Balor, aka The Irish Captor, is one of the most promising wrestlers in WWE on the current roster. Finn Balor has been in WWE for almost a decade and has performed in some of the most iconic matches against several great opponents. Balor has an alter ego gimmick ‘Demon King’ with dark body paint and dominant attacking abilities, which is quite similar to Bray Wyatt‘s ‘Fiend’ gimmick. Although Finn Balor and Bray Wyatt fought on several occasions, they never wrestled with these two terrifying gimmicks at the same time.

Finn Balor expressed his emotions about it in a recent interview. Balor recently appeared on the “Cheap Heat” Podcast with host Peter Rosenberg, where he was asked about Wyatt’s passing.

Balor said, “Yeah, it was a pretty somber atmosphere in the locker room. I had a couple of days following the news. A lot of us attended a ceremony in Florida yesterday. You know, celebrate Bray’s life, and you know, sadly that seems to be happening far too often in the business, losing people so young, but hopefully, we can continue to make Bray proud. I’m sure that’s what he would want and that’s what we intend to do in Nassau.”

The Irish Captor continued by stating that the one thing that he is sad about is: “Obviously I’d had the opportunity to work with him a lot as Finn versus Bray, as the Demon versus Bray, as Finn versus The Fiend. The one thing that I’m sad that we didn’t ever get to was this Fiend versus Demon match and that was something that we talked about at length. We were kind of hoping that was going to happen eventually, but you know, it’s not to be.”

Balor enjoying his heel run with the Judgment Day

On Saturday night, Judgement Day’s Finn Balor fought The American Nightmare Cody Rhodes in a Street Fight in Uniondale, New York. He promoted the event on the “Cheap Heat” podcast with Peter Rosenberg” before the show.

Balor was asked If he enjoys being a heel more than being a babyface: “752 times better. Yeah, I’m just out there having a wild old time, enjoying myself, letting them go, and kind of feeling it in the moment. Sometimes there’ll be a negative reaction, sometimes there’ll be a positive reaction, but there’s always a reaction, and that’s what we have to kind of work off. It’s been a lot of fun for me since turning heel so to speak.”

However, it is a fact that Finn Balor has been performing very well as a heel since he started his journey with Judgement Day. Over time, fans have acknowledged him as one of the rising stars in WWE.
