WWE has announced that Andrade "Cien" Almas will be challenging Finn Bálor's "Demon King" persona for the Intercontinental Championship at WWE Super ShowDown in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Friday, June 7th.
The following comes from WWE.com:
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.
¡Órale guey!! Step Up and Get Busy AMIGO! https://t.co/AZMZaTqv5j— Finn Bálor forEVERYone (@FinnBalor) April 26, 2019
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?
