WWE talent and crew crossed the border for another solid edition of SmackDown this week. The company had made special travel arrangements for the stars due to the hurricane. Still, several superstars missed the show.
Sheamus revealed Butch and Ridge Holland were stuck in Florida due to Hurricane Ian and couldn’t accompany him to the ring to take on Imperium. The “King of Bangers” took on all three members of the group alone.
Sheamus took out Ludwig Kaiser and Giovanni Vinci with a shillelagh. He engaged in a violent brawl with Gunther, but was ganged up by Kaiser and Vinci. Sheamus also had his chest caved in by Gunther with his brutal chops.
Sheamus will challenge Gunther for the Intercontinental Championship on the season premiere of SmackDown next week. The match is expected to be a hard-hitting affair.
