Though Bray Wyatt failed to defeat Finn Bálor at SummerSlam, The New Face of Fear has found a way to put The Demon to rest, as his Irish adversary will step into the darkness without the help of his alter-ego in a highly anticipated SummerSlam rematch on Sunday, Sept. 24, at WWE No Mercy.
Wyatt initially set this rivalry ablaze when he delivered an eerie warning to Bálor back in July, leading to numerous encounters between the two increasingly hostile adversaries. In the past, Wyatt has shown a distinct ability to get inside the heads of his foes, but at SummerSlam, Bálor’s Demon persona proved to be the equalizer.
However, on the Aug. 28 episode of Raw, Wyatt appeared out of the darkness to throw Bálor over the top rope during a Battle Royal to determine who would challenge Miz for the Intercontinental Title, costing the Irishman a potential championship opportunity.
Hell-bent on putting an end to his war with Wyatt, the first-ever Universal Champion called out The Eater of Worlds the following week on Raw. The Man of 1,000 Truths was happy to oblige his foe in a fight, but he made it clear it had to be man-to-man.
Can Bálor defeat Wyatt in a man-to-man showdown? Or, was it The Demon who was the only one capable of toppling The Eater of Worlds, as Wyatt suggests?
I really want him to win this with all that Bray Wyatt has been up too as of late so I may be setting myself up for a fall here but he’s my pick
