Gunther and Sheamus will run it back on the season premiere of SmackDown.

Gunther and Sheamus had a critically acclaimed match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship at Clash at the Castle. On that night, Sheamus failed to become a WWE Grand Slam Champion, but he will get another shot at it on October 7 during the season premiere of Friday Night SmackDown.

From WWE:

The explosive season premiere of Friday Night SmackDown on Oct. 7 will feature a huge title showdown!

Intercontinental Champion Gunther will once again go to war with Sheamus in a highly-anticipated WWE Clash at the Castle title rematch!

The two hard-hitting Europeans fought tooth-and-nail in their historic Premium Live Event matchup. Though The Celtic Warrior did not capture the gold, the incredible ovation he received from the crowd in Cardiff, Wales was a testament to his gritty effort. Now, the WWE Universe and the locker room can’t wait to see the carnage that unfolds in the sequel.

The X-factor of the match will likely be the potential impact of The Brawling Brutes and Imperium. All parties love a good fight, and time will tell if there will be anything left of the blue brand when all is said and done.

Find out who emerges with the workhorse title on the can’t-miss season premiere on Friday, Oct. 7, at 8/7 C on FOX.

Here's the full card for the season premiere so far:
