JEDDAH — Andrade said he was not afraid of The Demon ahead of WWE Super ShowDown. That may have been true as Andrade arguably gave Intercontinental Champion Finn Bálor’s otherworldly alter ego his toughest challenge to date. However, despite Andrade’s best efforts, Bálor emerged victorious from a thrilling title bout that had the WWE Universe chanting “This is awesome!”

The confidence of Andrade was on display from the opening bell as he went right after Bálor and staggered the Intercontinental Champion with a back elbow and a running knee in the corner.

The challenger threw everything he had at the champion, including a punishing Hammerlock DDT, but nothing could put The Demon down for the three-count.

In the final moments, Andrade caught Bálor on the top rope, and springboarded to meet him there out of desperation. Andrade was looking to slam the champion to the canvas, but The Demon took control and drove his opponent into the mat with a thunderous DDT from a tremendous height. That left Andrade in perfect position for the Coup de Grace, allowing Bálor to retain his title.

Andrade was sure that he could take out The Demon, but Bálor proved once again that when his incredible alter ego is unleashed, there is, quite possibly, nothing that can stop him.
