Finn Balor hasn’t had a decent run on WWE TV over the past few weeks, but it appears that his personal life could be making up for his lack of luck in his professional field.
Balor managed to defeat Andrade back at Super ShowDown in June before he was then not used on SmackDown Live for a number of weeks until the company allowed him to enter a feud with Shinsuke Nakamura.
Balor lost to Nakamura on SmackDown Live last week, before a match was announced between the two former NXT Champions at Extreme Rules, but was relegated to the kickoff show. Balor lost the Championship clean to Nakamura in a short match following a Kinshasa and was then attacked by Bray Wyatt following his loss on Raw this past week.
It’s well-known that Balor is set to take some time away from WWE heading into SummerSlam, but it could be because the Irish star has some personal business to attend to. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter confirmed earlier today that the former Intercontinental Champion is now engaged to his long-time girlfriend and Fox Sports broadcaster Vero Rodriguez.
Speculation that the couple had decided to take the next step in their relationship began last month when Balor posted an Instagram image of his new girlfriend who was wearing a diamond ring, but this wasn’t confirmation until Dave Meltzer was able to confirm it today.
It was recently revealed that Balor was overlooked by Vince McMahon throughout his time as Intercontinental Champion and is now taking some time off so that he can recharge his batteries after a frustrating few months.
Hopefully, when Balor returns to the ring at SummerSlam next month he’s able to prove why he’s the real Demon in WWE since it’s speculated that he will go up against The Fiend.
