"The Demon" Finn Balor To Defend I-C Title Against Andrade At WWE Super Show-Down
The card for WWE’s return to Saudi Arabia next month continues to grow.
As noted, on Saturday, WWE announced the addition of Braun Strowman vs. Bobby Lashley to their upcoming WWE Super Show-Down 2019 special at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Strowman-Lashley joins Triple H vs. Randy Orton, a 50-man Battle Royal and the first-ever one-on-one showdown between WWE Hall Of Famer Bill Goldberg and The Undertaker.
On Sunday, WWE announced an Intercontinental Championship bout for the show, which takes place on Friday, June 7th and airs live via the WWE Network, as “The Demon” Finn Balor will defend his title against Andrade.
WWE.com released the following announcement on Sunday morning:
Intercontinental Champion “The Demon” Finn Bálor vs. Andrade
At WWE Super ShowDown, the reemergence of The Demon could spell doom for Andrade’s “tranquillo” tactic.
The vestiges from their intensifying conflict have paved the way for this sure-to-be thrilling Intercontinental Championship clash. This rivalry was set ablaze when both Superstars crossed paths during the Superstar Shake-up, with Andrade scoring an upset victory over his rival on Raw and Finn Bálor defeating the former NXT Champion on SmackDown LIVE. Just five days before WWE Money in the Bank, Andrade pinned The Extraordinary Man for a second time during a thrilling Fatal 4-Way Match that also included Randy Orton and Ali.

Since then, the two SmackDown LIVE Superstars have been at each other’s necks. Where Andrade seeks to dethrone the reigning Intercontinental Champion, Bálor is out to prove his determined rival is barking up the wrong tree. While Andrade is known for pushing his opponents to the edge, how will his killer instinct fare against the demonic force of Bálor’s dark entity?
