Tolkien described [In reply to] Can't Post

Balrogs as "lesser" Maia and Sauron as a "greater" Maia, so any Balrog would never acheive the self fulfilling dominant and commanding stature that Sauron did. Although Gothmog was a commander in the First Age this was under Morgoth.

Sauron was so great that Olorin, prior to being incarnated as Gandalf was afraid of travelling to Middle Earth as an Istari to challenge him as he knew Sauron was much more powerful than him.

No dark power would be anywhere near as powerful as Sauron.
