Last week on SmackDown, Gunther defended his Intercontinental championship against Ricochet. However, Ricochet was unable to win the title. Following the match, Imperium attempted to attack Ricochet but Braun Strowman came to the ring and helped the former IC Champion.
This past Friday on SmackDown, Braun Strowman and Ricochet faced Ludwig Kaiser and Giovanni Vinci in a Miracle on 34th Street Fight. In the closing moment of the match, Ricochet hit a splash on Vinci and picked up the victory.
During SmackDown Lowdown, Braun Strowman stated that he has unfinished business with Gunther. Strowman also said that he will take the Intercontinental Championship from Gunther.
“You say it’s unfinished because you’re absolutely right. Gunther cost me the World Cup tournament. Ricochet took advantage of it and I don’t blame him. Gunther, on the other hand, is an absolute dirtbag. Those two clowns that run around with him, they think they can stick their nose in anybody’s business whenever they want to. They found out tonight that it don’t always happen on my watch.
I’m not forgetting what happened. You have that Intercontinental Championship and I promise you if I ever get my hands on you, I would love to be the monster to take the title away from your hands and put it where it belongs – around my waist. I’m coming for you, be ready!”
