This will be the second week of Rollins’ “Intercontinental Championship Open Challenge,” after successfully defending against Mojo Rawley last Monday.
London’s O2 Arena will host this week’s Raw, so it’s interesting the company hasn’t chosen to put an English star in that position instead.
Nevertheless, this should be another in a string of great matches for Rollins.
These two, of course, have gone at it in the past. When Owens was Universal Champion, Rollins challenged him on several occasions. The pair even had one of the better Hell in a Cell matches in recent years.
According to Pro Fight DB, though, this is the first time they will meet one-on-one since January 2, 2017. Oddly enough, that match did not have any championships on the line, despite Owens still holding his title.
