Balor first spoke about the Universal title picture, where he explained he never actually lost the title and deserves a rematch, potentially against Samoa Joe or Brock Lesnar, who met at ‘Raw’ this past week and who will meet at ‘Great Balls of Fire‘ after Samoa Joe won a Fatal 5 Way at ‘Extreme Rules‘ which included Balor to become number one contender.
“Perhaps considering the fact I never actually lost the Universal Title, maybe at some point I’ll be granted a rematch — maybe against Samoa Joe or Brock Lesnar.”
Next, he would speak about the unfortunate circumstances behind not competing at this years ‘WrestleMania‘, highlighted by Roman Reigns vs. The Undertaker where ‘The Deadman’ reportedly retired. He goes into detail, explaining that he was ready to compete but it was too close to ‘WrestleMania’ and there was no space or opponents left. This is notable as many fans disliked the duration of the show as it was.
“It was quite an interesting scenario, because the reality was I actually was fit and I was ready and I was back wrestling, there was just no space on the card at WrestleMania. Obviously I had done my part in the rehabilitation, but it was kind of too late situating anything to do with the card. There was literally no space left, no opponents left, that was the reality of it.”
One hot topic among WWE fans is when Balor will appear again under his ‘demon’ moniker. Balor explained that he appears as the demon when the situation is right. ‘Raw’ hasn’t presented himself with that, which he likes as he loves walking out the way he does.
“The Demon character is something I draw on occasion. It’s something that requires a lot of focus to tap into and really requires the right situation for me to sort of draw on that darker side of my personality. Since I’ve been back on Raw, the opportunity hasn’t really presented itself to tap into that side and I’ve had such a good time being back I haven’t wanted to change. I quite like walking out in my sweet new Balor club jacket. popping my collar and being Mr Cool.”
Finally, Balor explains that all four previous members of The Club (Alternatively known as The Bullet Club outside of WWE) are on different paths and are best separated for right now, despite WWE fans wanting them to reunite. He says that they may need to come together in the future, but for now things are fine as they are.
“It’s something that comes up every now and again, whether we should reform The Club. To me it was a moment in time. That moment for me was four years ago. A lot has changed in those four years. Myself, Luke, Karl have a lot of history together and AJ (Styles) is on Smackdown, the possibility of perhaps reuniting in the future, sure it’s tasty to a lot of people. I think individually right now we’re all stronger on our own paths. Maybe that will change in the future. We may need to reassemble the troops, but for now I think we’re all doing fine.”
I don’t know what to think about Balor using the demon gimmick, because he obviously doesn’t need it. Fans do want it though. In my belief, I think he will bring it out for matches on any of the four big co-branded pay-per-views, or even just Summerslam and WrestleMania if necessary. As for The Club, maybe Gallows and Anderson would get more much needed recognition from being involved with Balor.
