WWE Superstar Finn Balor recently spoke with ESPN.com ahead of his huge Universal Championship match against the “Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar, set to take place this Sunday night at WWE’s annual Royal Rumble pay-per-view in Phoenix, AZ.
While many fans may be upset by this news, Balor claimed he would NOT be bringing back his inner “Demon” persona to challenge for the gold this weekend.
“I feel like maybe I leaned on the demon too much there in the past as a crutch,” the inaugural Universal Champion stated. “I can assure you that the man who faces Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble will be Finn Balor, the man.”
Don’t completely rule out something unique from the 37-year-old Irish phenom just yet. “I don’t have any new gear, I don’t have any new looks, I don’t have any new ideas right now, but you know, we’re still six days away, so I’m sure I’ll come up with something.”
