IC title match set for WWE Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia


The Intercontinental Championship will be on the line at WWE's next show in Saudi Arabia.

WWE has announced that Finn Balor will defend his Intercontinental title against Andrade at Super ShowDown in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Friday, June 7. Balor will use his "Demon" character for the match.

Balor dressed as The Demon when he won the Intercontinental title from Bobby Lashley at WrestleMania 35 last month.

Balor and Andrade will both be entrants in Sunday's men's Money in the Bank ladder match. They've been involved in a feud against each other since the Superstar Shake-up. Balor and the Intercontinental title moved to SmackDown in the Shake-up, while Andrade and Zelina Vega initially went to Raw before going back to SmackDown.

Super ShowDown is taking place at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah and will air live on the WWE Network starting at 2 p.m. Eastern time on June 7. It's the third show in WWE's 10-year deal with the Saudi General Sports Authority.

Here's the updated card for Super ShowDown (Roman Reigns, WWE Champion Kofi Kingston, Universal Champion Seth Rollins, AJ Styles, and Brock Lesnar are also advertised):

  • Goldberg vs. The Undertaker
  • Triple H vs. Randy Orton
  • Braun Strowman vs. Bobby Lashley
  • Intercontinental Champion Finn Balor defending against Andrade
  • 50-man battle royal
