Demon Balor vs. Bray Wyatt set for WWE SummerSlam
After a humiliating ending to their first match on Raw, Finn Balor has scored a second chance against Bray Wyatt at SummerSlam.
The two faced off on Monday Night Raw in a singles bout. Wyatt won clean, pinning Balor after a Sister Abigail. He delivered the move a second time after the match, then doused Balor in what was described on commentary as “acidic liquid.”
It had previously been announced that they would be facing off at SummerSlam, but it was quickly confirmed that match was still on. A twist was added as well, with Balor announcing that his “Demon” persona would be returning.
In an interview with Charly Caruso, Balor mentioned that while Wyatt has his demons, he has demons of his own, hinting at the alter ego that he hasn’t brought back since his return from injury earlier this year.
This brings the current match total for SummerSlam to 12. The show will take place in Brooklyn, New York at the Barclays Center this Sunday.
