Last week, both Drew McIntyre and Sheamus scored a pinfall in a Fatal 5-Way match to determine who would wrestle GUNTHER for the Intercontinental Championship at Wrestle Mania 39. Since they scored said pinfalls at the same time, Adam Pearce simply prebooked a singles match between the two Friday night smackdown this week in Kansas City.
There were rumors that a triple threat was always planned. So how would this all turn out?
Of course, the two couldn’t quite determine a winner, as they were about to be counted out together before GUNTHER himself interrupted and attacked both with his Imperium stablemates. Having seen enough, Pearce decided to go ahead and prove the rumors correct, booking a triple threat.
It’s finally official.
