It was announced on Sunday morning that Seth Rollins will defend the Intercontinental Title against Kevin Owens this Monday night, May 14, at Raw in London, England.
The match was set up when Rollins tweeted this about having another open challenge on Raw this week after he beat Mojo Rawley last week.
Highly considering another Open Challenge for the IC Title this Monday in London. @MojoRawleyWWE put in a career performance last week. Interested to see who wants to step up to the plate this time. #MondayNightRollins #fightingchampion #brockwho

That led to Kevin Owens answering the challenge with this cell phone promo from the tour in Europe.

Rollins replied that it was cool and then WWE.com confirmed the match was as on.

It should be a great match featuring two guys that are familiar with eachother going back to their Ring of Honor days and also a rivalry in WWE in late 2016 as well with a memorable match at Hell in a Cell 2016. I expect Rollins to retain the title.
I’ll be here on Monday night for the live review of Raw even though the results will be known a few hours before it airs because it is being taped in England.
