As first reported on the WWE Now preview show earlier today, Intercontinental Champion Finn Bálor will defend his title against Shinsuke Nakamura on the WWE Extreme Rules Kickoff.

The King of Strong Style recently set his sights on Bálor's coveted title, first confronting him during a backstage interview two weeks ago, then putting himself in prime position for this title opportunity by defeating The Extraordinary Man in a non-title match on Tuesday's SmackDown LIVE.

Bálor and Nakamura thrilled WWE fans throughout their first-time-ever showdown, with Nakamura narrowly defeating the champion after a ring-rattling Kinshasa. There's no doubt these two hard-hitting Superstars will leave it all on the line in their encore performance, but can Nakamura pull off a second victory with the championship gold up for grabs?

Don't miss all the action on the WWE Extreme Rules Kickoff, streaming tonight at 6 ET/3 PT on WWE Network, WWE.com, the WWE App, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
