• SmackDown Star Is Injured, Will Miss WrestleMania 39
On Friday’s episode of SmackDown, multiple men came out and said they want a shot at Gunther’s Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania 39.
WWE then announced the following Fatal 5-Way Intercontinental Championship Qualifying Match for next week’s episode:
Drew McIntyre vs. Sheamus vs. LA Knight vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Karrion Kross
According to the Wrestling Observer, Kofi got injured during the brawl on SmackDown and it’s serious.
He’s going to miss WrestleMania 39. However, since Triple H wants a small card for the Show of Shows, Kofi was likely not going to be in a match at WrestleMania Hollywood anyways.
