WWE fans are always intrigued to see when Finn Balor will bring back his alternative character.

The former WWE Universal Champion made his Demon character popular while on the independent scene but only portrays it when a certain feud or match calls for it.

During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Balor was asked about not portraying the character for his Triple Threat Match for the Intercontinental Title at WrestleMania 34 in April against Seth Rollins and The Miz.

If you recall, Balor instead, wore his “for everyone” shirt,” which saw 20% of the sales from each of those shirts is donated to GLAAD during an entrance that showed support for the LGBTQ community.

“A lot of people maybe thought going into WrestleMania, ‘Well, if Finn’s not gonna be the Demon, it’s gonna suck. I think what we did at WrestleMania is a lot more important than any Demon could have been.”

Balor also noted that he worked on the shirt and idea for about six months. After seeing his Instagram post with a rainbow version of the Balor Club symbol with the text, “BálorClub is for EVERYONE,” Stephanie McMahon contacted him about it.

“I feel like—not that they were excluded, but sometimes they felt like they weren’t included. That’s something I felt a responsibility for, to use the platform that I have for good and to help maybe a small amount of people for the right reasons.”

“It’s crazy because it was kind of a couple months of me talking, then as soon as the right people heard it, it was almost instantaneously, ‘We gotta have this shirt out next week and we gotta talk to GLAAD ASAP and we’re gonna roll with it.'”
