Reigning NXT Champion Finn Balor will defend his title towards Karrion Kross, throughout evening two of NXT Takeover: Stand & Ship. Earlier than Thursday’s Championship bout, Finn sat down for an interview with WWE Now India, and spoke about his “Demon King” alter ego. Balor talked about why a reversion to the character “can be a step again”, explaining:
“Yeah, I feel as quickly as Karrion Kross got here to NXT, folks sort of had this concept of a dream situation of Karrion Kross versus The Demon. The battle of the 2 entrances and the battle of the 2 darker characters. For me on this second in my profession, I really feel like The Demon can be a step again. I really feel like proper now with my ring work as The Prince I really feel very snug, I really feel very managed, I really feel very assured, and I really feel that’s the route I’ve to go at TakeOver”.
The 2-time NXT Champion, in addition to two-time Intercontinental Champion continued the interview, and gave a glance into what the WWE Universe may even see from him as a substitute. Balor advised WWE Now:
“So I don’t wanna let anybody down. Within the second [facing Kross], there’s gonna be no Demon, however there’s gonna be a really, very darkish aspect of The Prince that’s gonna meticulously take aside Karrion Kross”.
