BANGOR – WWE comes to town Friday at the Cross Insurance Center, as the company hits Bangor with its “SummerSlam Heatwave Tour.” While plenty of stars within the WWE arsenal will be present, including Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, Sasha Banks and many others, it will be a special outing for one star in particular.
Finn Bálor has spent the better part of 15 years traveling the globe wrestling, but one place he’s never been? Maine. His appearance Friday in Bangor and Saturday in Augusta will be the “Demon King’s” first in “Vacationland,” and it’s something he anxiously awaits.
“Every town, no matter how close, there’s always kind of a different vibe, different atmosphere,” Bálor said Thursday. “What I love is getting to go to a town that I’ve never been to before and walk out in front of the people that already know to a certain extent who I am. It’s an incredible feeling and it just shows the incredible reach that WWE has.”
Bálor spoke at length with ABC 7 and Fox 22 sports director about his character, his upcoming match with Bray Wyatt at “SummerSlam,” and much more. The entire conversation can be found here.
