WWE has announced another match for the Super Showdown 2019 show as Finn Balor and Andrade will face-off for Intercontinental Championship.
Finn Balor and Andrade have been in a feud ever since Andrade moved to the RAW brand during the Superstar Shakeup 2019 and defeated Balor in a non-title match. Later, Balor moved to SmackDown and Andrade was also drafted back to SmackDown which continued their feud. Balor defeated Andrade in a non-title match at SmackDown while Andrade has pinned Balor in the fatal 4-way match earlier this week.
Both of them are in the Money in the Bank Ladder match for today’s Money in the Bank show and now WWE has announced that Balor will defend his title against Andrade at their show at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on 7th June this year. With the announcement, WWE might have also indicated that neither of them will be winning Money in the Bank briefcase tonight.
Another interesting point here is that Balor is announced to return with his Demon King gimmick. This will be the first time that Balor’s Demon King gimmick will be on display in such close timeframe. Balor last used the gimmick at WrestleMania last month when he defeated Bobby Lashley to win the Intercontinental Championship.
Regardless, This will be Balor’s second title defense after winning the title at WrestleMania. He also defeated Sami Zayn on the RAW after Mania show to retain the title. The announcement was earlier in the day via WWE’s website and social media handles. WWE has already announced 4 more matches prior to this for the show.
The first is the never seen before and highly anticipated match between the Undertaker and Goldberg while Triple H vs Randy Orton, a 50 Men Battle Royal and a Braun Strowman vs Bobby Lashley clash is also announced. Apart from this, there are several matches that are rumored for the show:
- Seth Rollins vs Brock Lesnar for Universal Championship
- Kofi Kingston vs Kevin Owens for WWE Championship
- AJ Styles vs Drew McIntyre
- Roman Reigns vs Shane McMahon
