It’s a special moment. There are certain wrestlers who have an upgraded version of themselves that they do not bring out very often. When you know they are going to show up though, you can tell that things are about to get a lot more serious in a hurry. That very well might be the case again, and we could be in for something rather special at an upcoming WWE event.

This week’s SmackDown ended with Roman Reigns successfully defending the Universal Title against Finn Balor, although the Usos attacked Balor before the match. After the match ended, Reigns went to leave but a red light flashed in the arena for a second. According to, this may be an indication of the return of Balor’s alter ego, the Demon, for a rematch at Extreme Rules later this month. The rematch has not yet been announced.

This could get big. Check out what happened this week, plus what might be coming for Reigns:

Opinion: This is the kind of thing that makes Balor seem like he might have a chance, because the Demon is a different form. It’s the final boss form of Balor and you don’t get to see something like that very often. Let him go big against Reigns in a special match, likely with Reigns coming out on top in the end. Either way, Balor vs. Reigns II should be a heck of a fight and that little bit of a question makes it work that much better.

What do you expect from the match? Who will take the title from Reigns? Let us know in the comments below.
