Heading into this year's SummerSlam pay-per-view, Finn Balor lost the WWE Intercontinental Championship to Shinsuke Nakamura at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view and was attacked the very next night on RAW by 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt.
Within the following weeks, as WWE Superstars Wyatt and Balor developed a rivalry against each other, a match between the two men was eventually confirmed for The Biggest Party of the Summer after Balor had laid down the challenge to Wyatt in the first place on an episode of SmackDown Live.
'The Fiend' came out to an insane reception at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Canada, as Wyatt used a brand new theme song for his entrance and also brought a brand new lamp as part of his entrance, as well.
As expected, Wyatt dominated the match right from the get-go and gained the upper hand on Balor, as the WWE Universe broke a "Yowie Wowie" chant. With Wyatt dominating Balor right from the start, the former even snapped the neck of his opponent and just as when Wyatt attempted Sister Abigail, Balor started to fight back as he hit a Slingblade. Balor then dropkicked Wyatt and connected with a fury of strikes before hitting him with a stomp in the middle of the ring.
Just as it seemed that Balor was slowly turning the match into his favor, Wyatt caught him with the Mandible Claw preventing his opponent to hit the Coupe de Grace. Balor eventually passed out as Wyatt pinned him in the middle of the ring while the Mandible Claw was still applied.
The Fiend's debut certainly took the social media by storm and sent the WWE Universe into a frenzy. Here is how Twitter reacted to 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt's iconic debut.
