Sheamus Stakes Claim To Becoming ‘Ultimate Grand Slam Champion’ WWE

A very exciting first-time-ever encounter for the Intercontinental Championship at WWE Clash at the Castle was made official on this week’s episode of SmackDown in Montreal.

A fatal five-way match took place on the show between Ricochet, Sheamus, Madcap Moss, Happy Corbin and hometown hero Sami Zayn, with the winner earning a shot at Gunther’s championship in Cardiff.

Sheamus was victorious in the match, earning him the shot at Gunther.

The Intercontinental Championship is quite famously the one championship that Sheamus has never won in his WWE career, and he finally has a chance to capture that title in two weeks.

Sheamus spoke about his upcoming clash with Gunther on the SmackDown LowDown, where he hyped up the importance of him winning the title, and staked his claim to becoming the ‘ultimate Grand Slam Champion’.

He said:

“It’s the one title that I haven’t won, right? That’s what you’re gonna say, isn’t it? Because it’s no secret, right? I’ve been shouting it from the rooftops for the last couple of years. In my time here in WWE the one title that has eluded me to this time is the Intercontinental Championship. I have done everything to put myself in its path, but every time I was shortchanged, every time I was passed by, until tonight here in Montreal, where I survived and overcame a Fatal 5-Way match to go on to face Gunther at Clash at the Castle in Cardiff, Wales, which is a stone’s throw away from the city where I grew up in.

“It writes itself, mate, doesn’t it? To take what someone told me before, ‘When something’s meant to happen, it’ll happen.’ Now we’re weeks away from the opportunity, that moment becoming a reality, because Gunther, I’m promising you now, you may think that you hold all the cards, that you being the champion puts you in the top position.

“Well, I’m telling you, fella, in Cardiff, Wales, at Clash at the Castle, I am going to drag you into the belly of the Red Dragon. I am going to defeat you for the Intercontinental Championship, and not just to become a Grand Slam champion. No fella, you are going to be involved in history, in WWE history, when I become the first ever Ultimate Grand Slam Champion.”
