A recent report has unveiled the original plans for the return of Finn Balor's "Demon" character in WWE and the reasons behind those plans being scrapped. As a prominent The Judgment Day faction member alongside Damian Priest and Rhea Ripley, Balor has been a central figure in WWE storylines since joining the group after Hell In A Cell 2022.

His alliance with The Judgment Day led to a betrayal of their former leader, Edge, setting the stage for an ongoing rivalry between the two. The feud between Edge and Balor escalated at Elimination Chamber, where Edge and his wife, Beth Phoenix, emerged victorious in a tag team match against Balor and Rhea Ripley.

Initially, however, the conflict between Balor and Edge was intended to take a more sinister turn. In December, a report indicated that a Hell In A Cell match between the two superstars was slated for the Royal Rumble event.

According to Fightful Select, this match was meant to mark the return of Balor's Demon persona. Sources within WWE were divided on the idea of bringing back the Demon character. Some believed that it would be an ill-fitting choice given Balor's current role in The Judgment Day faction, while others argued that the match could benefit from the "extra buzz" provided by the Demon's presence.

Ultimately, the Hell In A Cell match between Edge and Balor was canceled, and the Demon's return was put on hold.

Uncertainty Surrounds Balor's Demon Return at WrestleMania 39

The last appearance of Finn Balor as the Demon came at Extreme Rules 2021, where he failed to defeat Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship.

Recently, Balor assaulted Edge on Raw in Ottawa, sparking speculation that a one-on-one match may occur at the two-night WrestleMania 39 event. Whether this potential encounter would involve a Hell In A Cell stipulation or feature, the long-awaited return of Balor's Demon character remains uncertain.

As WWE fans eagerly anticipate a potential showdown between Finn Balor and Edge at WrestleMania 39, seeing if the Demon character ultimately makes a comeback will be intriguing. Regardless of the outcome, the Balor-Edge rivalry will keep WWE audiences captivated in the coming weeks.
