Big Update on GUNTHER’s Challenger for WrestleMania 39

It looks like the rumored Triple Threat for the WWE Intercontinental Title will happen at WrestleMania 39 after all.

Tonight’s SmackDown on FOX opened up with the Fatal 5 Way to crown the next challenger to WWE Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER for WrestleMania 39. The match featured Xavier Woods vs. LA Knight vs. Karrion Kross vs. Sheamus vs. Drew McIntyre. However, no official winner was announced as the finish saw Sheamus pin Woods at the same time McIntyre was pinning Knight. Two referees were in the ring, so both pins were counted. The segment ended with the two referees arguing, while Sheamus and McIntyre had words as well.

As we’ve noted, Sheamus vs. McIntyre vs. GUNTHER in a WrestleMania 39 Triple Threat for the title has been rumored for several weeks now.

WWE WrestleMania 39 is scheduled for Saturday, April 1 and Sunday, April 2 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. Below is the current announced card, along with rumored matches and a related clip from SmackDown:
