Intercontinental champion Gunther defended his title in a triple threat match against former WWE champions Drew McIntyre and Sheamus. Titus O’Neil joined Michael Cole and Corey Graves to help call the match.
As you can expect, the match was hard hitting and filled with chops. Sheamus’ chest was bright red after chops from Gunther. All three men clobbered each other with authority.

A Brogue Kick finds the mark, but McIntyre hauls Sheamus out of the ring when he makes the cover. As they fight, McIntyre sets up for a breathtaking tope con hilo. He calls for the Claymore but runs into a Brogue Kick, and once again it’s only good for a two count.
McIntyre then connects on a Claymore, and this time it’s Sheamus’ turn to barely kick out before the ref counts to three. Sheamus manages to come out of it with another Brogue Kick, Gunther breaks up a pin attempt from Sheamus with a splash from the top and then powerbombs Sheamus onto McIntyre! Gunther then powerbombs McIntyre and gets the win!
