Finn Balor has been at the forefront of social media speculation recently after he Instagrammed a picture of Paul Heyman and himself with the tag line "The Demon Rises" and the date of SummerSlam.
This has added to the anticipation heading into next Sunday's pay-per-view, but in a recent interview with PodNasty Wrestling Podcast, Balor stated that no plans are currently in action for him and Heyman to unite.
He said: “I'm a big admirer of Paul, and I’ve had a lot of conversations with Paul about what we could do potentially in the future but it’s all hypothetical at the moment. That was some incredible, incredible fan art that I’m very fortunate that people send me all the time and I like to publicize some of their work and that’s literally all that was. A lot of people read into it their own way, and I apologize for that."

Whilst it would be a genius move for Finn to become a Paul Heyman guy, right now he is the biggest face in NXT and it would be a big shock for him to make his main roster as a heel under Paul Heyman.
That being said, Finn still talked about his debut and teased that he will be in Brooklyn and so will two other main roster shows so perhaps he or the Demon could make an appearance.
He continued: “But who knows, I will be in Brooklyn for NXT Takeover, I believe SummerSlam is in Brooklyn the next night, I believe Raw is in Brooklyn the next night so I’ll be in Brooklyn. Who knows?”
Finn Balor has his hands full already next weekend as he takes on Kevin Owens with his NXT Championship on the line. The Demon has been teased to be appearing and is currently undefeated in NXT so it's likely that Finn would prefer to bring him to such an important match.
The speculation that Owens could be set to walk out with the title following this weeks NXT tapings where the Canadian Superstar made his entrance to face Neville with the NXT Championship on his shoulder.
It is worth noting that WWE could have taped a backstage segment where Owens stole the championship, but that wont actually be shown until the episode airs. But if Finn is heading up the the main roster then it could make sense for him to drop the title so that he no longer has something holding him to the NXT brand.
Either way, all will become clear next Friday night when Balor and Owens will headline NXT Takeover Brooklyn in front of NXT's biggest ever crowd of 13,000.
