Call it a different way of doing things. In some cases, wrestlers are defined by how they look. Those wrestlers have had the same looks for so many years that it is almost impossible to imagine that anything about it will ever significantly change. Therefore, when someone actually does change something, it can be quite jarring. Such a change took place recently.

In a new post on Twitter, Finn Balor has revealed a new look, which includes a shaved head. As shown in the picture, Balor’s hair does seem to already be growing back a bit, meaning that it will likely be back to its full length by the time he returns to television. Balor is currently on a break from WWE TV after losing to Bray Wyatt’s Fiend in short fashion at Summerslam.

The Fiend might have beaten the hair off of him. Check out their match at Summerslam:

Opinion: This isn’t likely to mean much but it is kind of jarring to see Balor look so different. At the same time though, he might need a little bit of a change of pace after things haven’t been going so well for him as of late. Balor has been stuck in a rut for a good while now so maybe this change can do him a little bit of good. It’s not like it could get much worse.

Do you like the change? Will he be back to normal before his return to television? Let us know in the comments below.
