Balor and Andrade have participated in a couple of non-title matches post Wrestlemania. Both wrestlers have a win apiece. However, Andrade has the upper hand at the moment, pinning the intercontinental champion on the last episode of SmackDown in a fatal-four-way match.
Meltzer reported earlier this week that Andrade has been impressing people in the promotion off late. Vince is reportedly very high on him at the moment and plans to push him soon. However, his English is what’s holding the WWE Chairman from pulling the trigger. Andrade on his part though, has been taking English lessons to work his way around it.
Demon Balor was last seen at Wrestlemania this year. He made small work of Bobby Lashley and siezed the Intercontinental Championship. Vince is said to value the Demon as a draw. Which is why the Demon appears very rarely, so not to wear off the novelty. It is believed that Vince wants to keep him undefeated. It is likely therefore, that Andrade will take the pin this time.
With the quality of the talent in the ring, the match will definitely be one to watch out for. Even if the result is a foregone conclusion.
