The reigning Intercontinental Champion Gunther has a target on his back as several SmackDown superstars wish to capture the gold. After the past edition of SmackDown, a fatal-five-way match was declared involving Sheamus, Drew McIntyre, LA Knight, Kofi Kingston, and Karrion Kross to determine the number one contender for Gunther at WrestleMania 39. The segment started with Drew McIntyre calling out the Ring General. He was then interrupted by Sheamus who also has his sights set on the IC Championship.

According to Xero News, Drew McIntyre and Sheamus will be given the opportunity to challenge Gunther at WrestleMania 39 for the Intercontinental Championship. Although it’s unknown how the fatal-five-way match will play out, Gunther is likelier to face McIntyre and Sheamus in a triple-threat match at the Show of Shows.

The segment between McIntyre and Sheamus on SmackDown got heated quickly when Sheamus admonished the former WWE Champion for calling out Gunther behind his back. 

McIntyre then claimed that Sheamus had his chance and failed twice. By the looks of it, the bond of brotherhood is beginning to show crevices. Tune into SmackDown to see what happens when these two combustible elements stand in the ring on opposite sides. 

Kofi Kingston will not participate in the fatal-five-way match

Kofi Kingston’s leg injury will keep him from partaking in the fatal five-way match. The 13-time tag team champion will be MIA for at least two months due to the severity of his injury. WWE announced that Kofi’s faction mate, Xavier Woods, will now take his place in the fatal-five-way match.

The former WWE Champion took to Twitter to give an update on his leg injury. Find the video below.
