Okay,so I only follow a few wrestlers so I have tunnel vision. Sorry to the die-hards. This Finn Balor guy was dropped down to NXT to be worked on. He is allegedly being protected because he has some sort of undefeated streak? Also, if this goofy looking demon persona is bad because demons are bad right? Having Roman heel makes things confusing because I think of demons as bad and Brock Lesnar is. So us it two bads going against each other?

Some NXT peeps were sent back to NXT to re-elevate themselves after WWE horribly dropped the ball on them, like Balor and Ember. Balor's Demon Form is like his 'bad-ass, now I'm taking **** seriously form', so it doesn't necessarily make him a heel.

The paint job with the 'teeth' on his chest looks dumb. It's hard to take him as a threat. What is this 'undefeated' bit I read WWE is trying to maintain of his? It reads like there will be some kind of disqualification that has Roman keep the title and look bad not in a character damaging way but in a heel way.

He's never been beaten while wearing make-up.

IDK, IMO I think it looks awesome and his entrance with it is fun (assuming he still does the whole bit). He's supposed to be one of those very difficult to defeat characters.

Okay. It was not clear if it was Pay-per-view or main event or what. I hope that this will not be two consecutive non-decisions if that is what is set to happen to the match with Balor and then with Brock again next month.

I'm sure Brock's built enough as a big beast that if he beats Balor, it won't hurt him cause 'well, it's Brock Lesnar'. I mean he was the one to break Undertaker's streak after all.

Don't really watch wrestling but I heard about a new guy Joe Gacy? Is his bit as entertaining as it sounds? I might tune in for it.

I heard he's supposed to be making fun of the woke idiots out there. Calling WWE his safe space and all that. Still too early to know if he was a one-off or he's sticking around.

He’s not.

He lost to Samoa Joe as the Demon King back at Takeover The End 2016 inside a Steel Cage for the NXT Title

I get WWE making it that he never lost and NXT continuity is something they don’t care about but there a lot of people who watch NXT especially during Balor’s first run that know he lost just once as the Demon King.

The Demon King? Is that why he wears that hat? I guess its hard for me as a casual to take him seriously because I think he looks odd and I think demons are evil not intimidating. This match's purpose is to help elevate the guy so I will respect that as that was the purpose plenty of times FOR Roman, but hope that my guy does not come off looking bad.

I just wish he ran more with the gimmick. Like... at least a new finisher or something. I love the intro and stuff but when the bell rings I guess he's more intense? But a slightly different moveset or him acting more violent or brutal would have taken the gimmick as far as it could go.

I haven't really seen the Fiend and his matches. Did he ever wrestler as his weird Mr. Rogers self, or always as the Fiend? And I mean in the actual matches not his funhouse vignettes thing.

3 times if memory serves me correctly

He defeated The Miz back at December TLC 2019
He lost to Braun Strowman in a WWE Universal Title Match at Money In The Bank May 2020
He defeated Strowman in a non title Swamp Fight at Extreme Rules June 2020

The gimmick got pulled immediately, allegedly due to network pressure.

Hahaha, WWE ruined Balor last night

Has a big incredible hulk-up/demonic comeback, then the ring post he's standing on buckles and collapses, he takes a prat fall like an idiot and Reigns clocks him with a spear to win

Charlotte also ripped off Alexa's dolly, and Alexa sold it like she'd been violated.

The wrestling "media" strikes again. Several reports said it was pulled, but "obviously, plans must have changed". (TM Meltzer)
