Finn Balor has debuted a new purple bandana to fit more in line with The Judgement Day’s image, a look that certain WWE Superstars have hilariously poked fun at.
The Judgement Day laid waste to former leader Edge on Monday Night Raw’s latest broadcast, leaving ‘The Rated R Superstar’ with a grade 2 MCL sprain. However, the attack and subsequent injury was easily overshadowed by the purple bandana that adorned Finn Balor’s head during the assault.
‘The Prince’ is now blending in perfectly with The Judgement Day’s purple, grungey aesthetic – but Kevin Owens and Johnny Gargano think he looks more like Michael Scott from The Office! As discussed on WWE’s The Bump, the former NXT Champions believe that the bandana provides him with secret powers:
[Owens] “I think what we just saw from Monday was a whole new level of dominance. Also, I think what spurred it on was, Finn has this bandana when he came to the ring, the purple banana. Took him to a whole new level, and I think the viciousness.”
[Gargano] “Like a Prison Mike kind of scenario.”
[Owens] “Yeah, very Michael Scott. But man, clearly when Finn’s got that bandana on, you don’t want any part of him.”
Kevin Owens and Johnny Gargano continued, debating whether they’d rather face the bandana-wearing Finn Balor or his Demon persona:
[Gargano] “Wait a minute, okay, this is an interesting debate here now. Do you think Finn is more powerful as ‘The Demon’ or as ‘Bandana Finn’? More vicious with the bandana, scarier as The Demon. Which one do you not wanna cross paths with? Like you’re walking down the street, dark alley, middle of the night, you see The Demon or you see Finn with a bandana. Who do you [feel] like, ‘I don’t wanna deal with this?'”
[Owens] “I think I’d take my chances with The Demon. If the paint comes off, he’s still The Demon. It’s not reliant on the paint. But the bandana just takes him to a whole other level. Look at what they did.”
[Gargano] “I’ve never seen something like that before in my life.”
Finn Balor replaced Edge as The Judgement Day’s leader this past June. He’s since led Damian Priest and Rhea Ripley into wars opposite Edge and The Mysterios, with Dominik Mysterio having now joined the group as well.
It’s unknown how long Edge will be out of action for, or if he’ll still be seeking retribution against The Judgement Day upon his latest comeback.
