Baron Corbin was set to face Finn Balor at SummerSlam which is the last event he portrayed The Demon in 2016. Needless to say, it was a pretty big deal to see Balor as The Demon step out and the new CGI effects WWE uses for big events made the roof of the Barclays Center looks like a swirling hell above the ring.

It was a pretty great sight to see as Balor hasn’t portrayed the Demon character at SummerSlam since he won the Universal Champion to become the first-ever champion to hold the red belt. That was the same match Seth Rollins caused a shoulder injury for Balor thanks to a bucklebomb on the barrier.

Balor was nonstop as he turned his contest with Constable Corbin into pretty much a squash match marking the quickest match of the night at that point. But when The Demon comes out, you know he’s going to take care of business.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
