Intercontinental title match added to WWE WrestleMania 35


The Intercontinental Championship will officially be on the line at WrestleMania 35.

On this week's Raw, it was confirmed that Finn Balor will challenge for Bobby Lashley's Intercontinental title at WrestleMania. Balor defeated Lashley & Jinder Mahal in a handicap match to get the title shot.

Balor pinned Mahal after hitting the Coup de Grace. Lashley attacked Mahal and The Singh Brothers after the match.

Balor vs. Lashley & Lio Rush had originally been announced for Raw, but Rush cut a promo saying he wasn't cleared to compete after being laid out by Braun Strowman in last week's Lashley & Rush vs. Strowman & Balor tag match.

Lashley won the Intercontinental title from Balor on the March 11 episode of Raw. Rush distracting Balor led to the finish of the match. Before that, Balor won the title from Lashley by pinning Rush in a handicap match at Elimination Chamber in February.

WrestleMania 35 is taking place at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on April 7.
