WWE teases the appearance of Demon King
According to WWE.com’s official preview for this upcoming Monday’s RAW, there is a possibility that we might soon see the return of Finn Balor’s alter ego, Demon King.
In case you didn’t know…
Finn Balor introduced the Demon King persona for the first time in 2014 in NXT. After a successful run in NXT, he was drafted to RAW during the brand extension in July 2016
On his RAW debut, he became the number one contender to the Universal Championship.
In the build-up to his match against Seth Rollins, the former NXT Champion unveiled the Demon King on the main roster before becoming the first ever Universal Champion at SummerSlam 2016.
He had to relinquish the title the following night due to injury and was sidelined for 8 months before returning on the RAW after Wrestlemania 33.
After teasing a feud between Balor and Wyatt, Wyatt had a brief program with Seth Rollins, where he came out of victorious.
Now Wyatt has set his sights once again on the former Universal Champion and while an official match between the two has not been announced for August 20 at Summerslam, that’s most likely where the feud is heading. It will be interesting to see if further signs of the Demon King’s return will be seen on RAW.
Personally, I am not a fan of Finn Balor beyond his face/body paint and entrance and even less interested in his feud with Bray Wyatt.
That being said, I am looking forward to seeing the Demon King return, possibly at SummerSlam.
