Next up at WWE Super Showdown was an Intercontinental Title bout between defending champion Finn Balor, who competed as “The Demon,” and Andrade. A great match from these two, which saw Andrade nearly get the job done at one point with a Hammerlock DDT. However, Balor was able to nail Andrade with a DDT off the springboard and seal the deal with the Coupe de Grace to retain his title.

Check out a breakdown of the match from our own Bill Pritchard here:

Intercontinental Championship Finn Balor (c) vs. Andrade

Balor gets an early pinfall, then blocks a DDT and hits a basement dropkick. Balor charges the corner and Andrade ends up outside, so Balor kicks him on the floor but ends up getting tripped up by Andrade on the apron. Andrade follows with a missile dropkick for two, then follows up with a few suplexes and drives his knee into Balor’s back. Balor makes a comeback when he sends Andrade to the floor before hitting a somersault splash. Balor kicks him in the head and throws a few chops in the corner, then Andrade counters an Irish whip and kicks Balor in the head. He goes for a DDT, but Balor counters with an inverted DDT and a spike driver for two. Balor hits Sling Blade, but Andrade comes back with a few strikes and a running double knee strike for two. Andrade goes for a moonsault off the top and lands on his feet, then goes for another rotation but Balor gets the knees up to slow him down. Andrade goes for a sunset flip powerbomb off of the apron but Balor blocks it, then he whips him back in the ring and hits a double stomp to the back of the neck for two. Andrade comes right back with a seated double knee strike, but Balor kicks him in the head and heads up top. They fight for position on the turnbuckles and Andrade springboards up, but Balor sends him to the mat after a top rope DDT and hits the Coupe de Grace to retain.

Winner – Finn Balor
