WWE Raw star Finn Balor recently spoke with Metro in The UK, and below are some interview highlights:
You utilise the ‘Demon’ character on occasion in WWE, while also maintaining a more regular personality on Raw. Do you have a preference between the two?
“I like variety. I’m the sort of person with a very short attention span and I lose interest in things very quickly. I like to challenge myself as much as possible, so going back and forth between both personalities helps me stay focused with what I’m doing.
In regards to which one I prefer, I do really believe that we’ve all got a darker side and the man did create the demon, so I don’t know which one is actually more dangerous!
It very much is like method acting. The physical process of transforming into the Demon is just torture, I have to sit in that chair for four or five hours when I’m supposed to be warming up, loosening and getting ready for a match.
In reality I’m doing nothing, I’m sitting still and static and trying to make sure that the paint looks good. It obviously has a huge effect on my mood because I’m just the most pissed off version of Finn that you’ll ever meet on those days.”

You never lost the Universal Championship after being forced to give it up due to injury. How much of an ambition is it for you to wrestle for it again, especially against current champion Brock Lesnar?
“Listen, I don’t shy away from a fight for one second and I would absolutely love to be in there with Brock Lesnar.
I would love to get in there with The Undertaker and Triple H too, these are guys that have been active at the top of the game for the last 20 years.
They’re the type of guys I want to be in the ring with. We talk about stepping up and taking things to the next level, and I think that’s what I need to do next.
Once I handle Bray Wyatt, I need to be going after the Universal Championship which I was never beaten for.”
