SmackDown tonight will feature a big Fatal 5-way match to determine who will challenge Gunther for the Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania.

It should be interesting to see how things play out on tonight’s show.

SmackDown kicks off with The Usos arriving to the arena to meet Paul Heyman. Jey Uso immediately asks for Roman Reigns. Heyman hugs Jey and says that he is proud of him. Jey tells Heyman to tell Reigns that Jey is looking for him.

Drew McIntyre vs Sheamus vs Karrion Kross vs LA Knight vs Xavier Woods

The match kicks off with Woods attacking LA Knight, a brawl breaks out and eventually McIntyre and Sheamus are left in the ring alone. The two stare down but are both attacked from behind by Knight and Kross.

*Commercial break*

The match continues live with Knight and Kross teaming up against Woods in the corner. The two heels stomp on Woods before attacking McIntyre as he enters the ring. Sheamus drags Knight out of the ring and throws him to the barricade before Kross attacks Sheamus from behind. Kross enters the ring and elbow drops Woods and Kross gets back in the ring to again team up with Knight. Kross and Knight hit a double suplex to McIntyre. Sheamus hits a diving lariat from the top rope to Knight. Kross locks McIntyre in a single-leg Boston crab before breaking the hold to prevent Knight from pinning Sheamus. Knight and Kross begin to argue before Knight hits Kross with a right hand. Woods hits Knight with a forearm and then Kross with a lariat. Woods hits Sheamus with a super kick and then plants Kross with a DDT. Woods goes to the top rope and hits an elbow drop to Knight, Woods covers but the three other wrestlers all run in to break the pin attempt at two.

*commercial break*

Back live with Kross and Knight again working as a team against McIntyre…until Knight goes to hit Kross with a superplex, the two struggle on the top rope before McIntyre pops up to complete the tower of doom. McIntyre goes to hit the future shock to Knight but Knight counters with a lariat. Sheamus runs in to hit Knight with a big power slam. Sheamus then grabs Woods and hits with 10 beats of the Bodhran, no really he actually hit 10 this time, and then Sheamus hits 10 more to Kross and then 10 to Knight, that’s 30 beats of the Bodhran if gambling on wrestling does become legal I’ll always take the over on number of Bodhran beats. Sheamus hits Woods with a Brogue kick and McIntyre hits Knight with a Claymore, the two both make covers, for some reason a second ref slides in the ring and we get a double three count as both refs look very confused and Sheamus and McIntyre argue with each other…then we cut away from the ring without a clear finish to this match.

Winner(s): Drew McIntyre & Sheamus (That seems like the best way to call this finish)

*Commercial break*

SmackDown returns with McIntyre and Sheamus screaming at each other backstage before Butch and Ridge Holland step in to separate the two.
