WWE adds The Demon Finn Balor vs Andrade for Intercontinental title at Super ShowDown


WWE has added another match to their Super ShowDown event which takes place in Saudi Arabia next month.

WWE's Super ShowDown is starting to come together as five matches have now been confirmed for the show on June 7.

Goldberg will take on The Undertaker in a singles match for the first time ever, Randy Orton will renew his rivalry with Triple H, and another 50-man Battle Royal will also take place.

Braun Strowman will have a singles match vs Bobby Lashley and, WWE also confirmed on their website that Finn Balor will defend his Intercontinental Championship vs Andrade.

However, an extra tidbit to this match is that Balor will be wrestling as The Demon when he defends his title in Saudi Arabia against the third-generation luchador.

The two superstars have already crossed paths with one another a couple of times over the past couple of weeks, with both of them picking up a win against the other as the Superstar Shake-up unfolded.

Earlier this week, however, Andrade got a second win against Balor during a Fatal Four-Way match which also included Ali and Randy Orton. He pinned him to win the match as well.


Balor and Andrade will face each other again later today in the men's Money in the Bank ladder match, which also includes Ali, Orton, Drew McIntyre, Baron Corbin, Sami Zayn, and Ricochet.

WWE is said to be high on Andrade, as they view him as their next big Latino superstar and one that could eventually replace Rey Mysterio.

Fox also wants a big Latino superstar on SmackDown ahead of their acquisition of the show later this year in order to bring in Spanish audiences.


It, therefore, wouldn't be surprising to see the third-generation luchador defeat The Demon for the Intercontinental Championship at Super ShowDown as they look to build his character up ahead of SmackDown's move to Fox.

This would be a huge win for Andrade too as Balor has never been defeated on the main roster as The Demon. We won't have to wait long to see if this is the direction WWE wants to go in.

As for other Super ShowDown matches, it hasn't been confirmed yet but it is widely expected that Seth Rollins will be defending the Universal Championship vs Brock Lesnar at the event.
