‘The Prince’ Finn Balor has toyed with the idea of bringing back ‘The Demon’ for a potential bout with former NXT Champion, Karrion Kross.
At NXT TakeOver XXX, Karrion Kross shocked the world when he defeated Keith Lee to capture the NXT Championship. However, his reign was short lived when it became clear that he had picked up a shoulder injury in the main event clash and would not be able to compete on television for some time.
After Kross vacated the championship on the August 26 edition of the black and gold brand, vowing that he would return to claim his rightful prize, it was Finn Balor who eventually lifted the vacant strap following an exhausting Fatal 4-Way 60 Minute Iron Man Match and subsequent singles bout with Adam Cole.
Following Balor’s victory, the star was tormented by Scarlett who brought a shattered sand-timer to the ring indicating that he was on borrowed time and when Kross returned, the Irishman would be number one on his list.
Now, Finn Balor has joined the New York Post to discuss a potential bout with Karrion Kross and whether or not he would consider resurrecting ‘The Demon’ – which hasn’t been seen since Super ShowDown in 2019 – in order to aid him in retaining his gold:
“Definitely. Obviously, there are moments in time for everything. Right now it doesn’t feel like the time for The Demon, but I’m sure there will be a moment where I go OK now it’s time to rock. You know, Karrion might be that time, but we will have to see how events kind of develop. But his character is definitely something that is very intriguing to the audience. Whether The Demon can add another element to that kind of situation when it arises will be interesting.”
Strangely, upon the return of Karrion Kross, the star seemed to show little interest in the man who was keeping his title warm and instead took aim at Damian Priest in a rivalry that ended on January 6, 2021, at NXT New Year’s Evil. Since then, the fearsome powerhouse has turned his attention to NXT Cruiserweight Champion, Santos Escobar.
As for Finn Balor, his coupe de grace will come on February 14, 2021, when he defends the NXT Championship against ‘The Bruiserweight’ Pete Dunne at NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day.
