GUNTHER VS MCINTYRE VS SHEAMUS AT WRESTLEMANIA 39
WrestleMania 39 Intercontinental Championship Match
Gunther will defend his Intercontinental Championship in a triple threat match against Drew McIntyre and Sheamus at WrestleMania 39. Gunther has proven to be a dominant champion and has elevated the Intercontinental Title to “sacred” status. As he has approached The Grandest Stage of Them All, however, Gunther found himself without an opponent. Gunther demanded WWE Official Adam Pearce to rectify the situation. Pearce set up a Fatal 5-Way Match between the elite Superstars who had made their cases for why they should be given said challenge at WrestleMania.
When McIntyre and Sheamus both scored a pinfall at the same time in the free-for-all, it was decided that the friends would battle one-on-one for the Intercontinental Title opportunity. Before a winner could be decided in that subsequent showdown the following week, a mid-match attack by Imperium brought a sudden end to the contest. With no winner emerging from that match due to Gunther’s interference, it was determined by Adam Pearce that both Drew McIntyre and Sheamus would challenge Gunther in a Triple Threat Match at WrestleMania.
WrestleMania goes Hollywood for a special two-night Premium Live Event, Saturday, April 1, and Sunday, April 2, at 8 ET/5 PT, streaming live on Peacock in the United States and on WWE Network internationally.
