Last week Braun Strowman was pulled from the Universal Title match at the Royal Rumble, and Finn Balor earned the right to challenge The Beast when he won a fatal 4 way match in the main event on Raw.
Balor will be trying to take the Universal Title from Brock Lesnar on Sunday, but he told ESPN that fans shouldn’t expect to see The Demon at the event.
“I feel like maybe I leaned on the demon too much there in the past as a crutch, and I can assure you that the man who faces Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble will be Finn Balor, the man. I think a lot of people were surprised when I came out at WrestleMania not in demon paint but I feel like I had a bigger message to spread that day — one of equality and acceptance.”
At this point it doesn’t seem that Finn has anything special planned for his entrance, or his gear, but there’s still a few days to go.
“Honestly, this match just kind of came about so fast that I haven’t had much time to think about it. 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.”
