Seth Rollins came out on top in the battle for brand and title supremacy at Survivor Series last night as the Raw star and Intercontinental champion defeated SmackDown’s United States champ Shinsuke Nakamura.
Following the clash, it was confirmed that Rollins will put his IC strap up for grabs against former Shield partner Dean Ambrose at TLC. The bout will mark the first time the two have clashed since Ambrose’s shocking heel turn last month.

Rollins and Ambrose have not met on pay-per-view since a three-way match for the WWE Title between the members of the Shield at Battleground in 2016, which Dean won.
They have wrestled each other at several other major cards over the years, including Money In The Bank in 2015 and 2016, Elimination Chamber 2015, Hell In A Cell 2014 and SummerSlam 2014.
Ambrose has not wrestled on television since the heel turn, which controversially came on the same night that Shield ally Roman Reigns revealed his heartbreaking leukaemia diagnosis. Nor did he appear at Survivor Series last night.
