WWE professional wrestler Finn Balor is well known for the athletic bouts he performs in the ring, but he also has a reputation for the cinematic flair put into his entrances. While his usual entrance is already a sight to behold, his alter ego The Demon paints a much darker shade of brilliant. The persona sees the superstar covered with striking monstrous designs, and it seems Balor has debuted a new look in the wake of Sony’s new Venom trailer.
Revealed on his Instagram account, Balor has seemingly become bonded with the Venom symbiote, as the Spider-Man villain’s distinct look is very well captured. The character’s signature features are all there; Venom’s sinuous eyes, sharp-pointed teeth, and long tongue. There’s even a tentacled design going around his shoulder that is very reminiscent of the comic book character. Check it out below.
It’s unknown if this look could show up for a WWE appearance, but it definately looks like a real possibility now! Wrestlers bring in nerd-inspired gear all the time, with Kenny Omega recently sporting a Destiny 2 cosplay at this year’s Wrestle Kingdom. Tom Hardy on the other hand will be channeling his own inner demons as the live-action version of Venom, a feat evident in the new trailer. While short on symbiotes, it definitely leaves enough room for more reveals in later trailers. Venom will release in theaters on October 5.
