Balor is bland without The Demon gimmick.

What else makes him so special compared to the rest of the roster besides that? His mic skills are pretty terrible, his ring skills are basically the same as any other spot monkey on the roster so he doesn’t stand out. His demon gimmick was the one thing he had going for him and he never does it anymore. I won’t even be surprised if they don’t bring it back at Mania. Hell, he didn’t last Wrestlemania. Vince could’ve made money off The Demon since kids love face paint and larger than life characters, so I’m not sure why he made Finn drop that gimmick. Wwe, you make no sense lol

It's not a gimmick it's just face paint. The ascension wears face paint and they are still as uninspired as poorly toasted toast

Re: Balor is bland without the demon gimmick.

Ive said this a few times but balors whole situation with the demon character is nonsensical rubbish anyway.

Re: Balor is bland without the demon gimmick.

Bland without the demon persona(I don't see what about him differs with that persona anyhow, just a small 165 lbs dude pretending to be scary) but boring, idiotic and trashy as the demon anyway.

He's like the male version of Becky, except he calls himself "Demon" or whatever rather than "The man". Both these delusional buffoons sound horrendously dreary, their accent is annoying as fuck and basically are channel-changers, everything about them sucks. But at least Balor can wrestle like a cruiserweight. As far as gimmick or character or mic skills? Dude should be jobbing to Lashley and Baron Corbin still.

Correction:-As Finn Balor, Balor is like Bailey, but as Demon Balor, he's like delusional Becky. Either ways, he sucks.

Re: Balor is bland without the demon gimmick.

Only thing that changes is his entrance. He has the same moveset, personality, mannerisms, etc.

Yep. Spot on.



The "Demon Balor" isn't a gimmick, its face paint, its an entrance, thats all it is its an entrance. Demon Balor has the exact same move set, exact same match structure, exact same lack of intensity that Smiley Geek Balor has. Its just facepaint and an entrance. Thats the big issue, if he differentiated between Demon and Geek then Geek wouldn't be as bland a she is, it'd be a part of something larger.

Re: Balor is bland without the demon gimmick.

If he would at least change his signature moves and his finisher as The Demon it would be more intriguing. But Balor worked perfectly in NXT and was one of the hottest talents on the main roster pre-injury so it's still WWE's fault that he is so trash right now. Let's not forget his booking has been shit.

He just needs a complete character overhaul.

Re: Balor is bland without the demon gimmick.

He's bland with it lol. He's literally the same guy, only with body paint

I think it's a shame such a cool gimmick was given to someone like him. Balor isn't terrible but he doesn't stand out or anything

Surprised people agreed with me about him being bland. If I posted this on SquaredCircle, I’d be eaten alive
