The Fight Pit is back in WWE.
During the 9/19 episode of Monday Night RAW, Matt Riddle and Seth Rollins continued their blood boiling feud as the pair engaged in a brawl in the arena’s parking lot and had to be separated by security. The spat took place after Riddle distracted Rollins during the latter’s loss to Bobby Lashley in a bid for the United States Championship, earlier in the night.
Following the physical altercation, Riddle challenged Rollins to a Fight Pit match for next month’s Extreme Rules premium live event.
