On a recent edition of the “Cheap Heat” podcast, Finn Balor discussed WWE never booking a match between “The Demon King” and “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt during their time together.
Balor and Wyatt have had several matches in WWE, including one where The Demon fought Wyatt and The Fiend fought Balor. However, WWE never booked a match between their alter egos. Balor stated,
“Obviously I had the opportunity to work with him a lot. As Finn vs. Bray, as The Demon vs. Bray, as Finn vs. The Fiend. The one thing I’m sad that we didn’t ever get to get to was the Fiend vs. Demon match. That was something that we talked about at length and we were kind of hoping that was going to happen eventually, but it’s not to be.”
Wyatt tragically passed away of a heart attack at the age of 36 on August 24, 2023.
Balor also appeared on the “Ringer Wrestling Show” podcast to offer his thoughts on the potential of his Judgment Day stablemates.
According to The Prince, Dominik Mysterio’s growth and overall accomplishments stand out the most. He said,
“All three. I thought they were good, I didn’t know they were that good. Damian, I knew had it in him, he just maybe didn’t realize himself or he needed that extra kick up the ass to get going, and I feel the last couple of months, especially since winning Money in The Bank, he’s really stepped it up a gear. Rhea, I think everyone knew was a superstar from the day she walked in the door, it was just a matter of time. For me, the biggest surprise was Dominik. He’s kind of completely stepped out and probably exceeded any expectation that anyone had for his entire career, in one year. Last weekend was the one-year anniversary since he joined Judgment Day. I feel he was kind of given a warm reception when he came in because he was the son of a Hall of Famer, the son of Rey Mysterio, he was accepted because he was the blood of Rey Mysterio. ‘We appreciate you’re doing this and because we love your dad so much, we’re going to cheer for you.’ Once he stepped out from under that tree and started fending for himself, he’s been a completely different animal. Not only the growth he’s shown outside of the ring, his promos, his character work, but his growth inside of the ring has been absolutely monumental for someone who has had very little training, no NXT experience, most of his training has been done on the job, on live TV, this kid is the future of the business in my opinion.”
