Seth Rollins will start preparing for his much-awaited match against Dean Ambrose on Monday as the Intercontinental champion has revealed that he will start defending his title from this week’s Raw by coming up with open challenges. The Kingslayer himself confirmed the news on Twitter and wrote that the open challenge will return to Raw tomorrow. “Time to refocus heading towards Ambrose and #TLC. I learn the most by testing myself…so the #ICTitle Open Challenge returns tomorrow night on #Raw. #mondaynightrollins It’s go time,” he wrote on Twitter.
Rollins had started the open challenge after WrestleMania 34 and during one of the matches, he lost his title to Dolph Ziggler. Later, the duo would face each other at WWE SummerSlam where Rollins regained the title. He has retained the title since then and had defended it on a few occasions as well.
Rollins is all set to face Dean Ambrose at WWE TLC next month where he will be defending his title against his former partner of The Shield. The latter had turned heel on him last month. Both had won the tag team titles and just as the match concluded, Ambrose attacked Rollins. The two superstars did not come face to face for over a month but last week, Rollins came out to attack Ambrose but in the end, it was the Lunatic Fringe who stood tall.

In other news, an update on Braun Strowman is also expected to be made on Raw. He was attacked by Baron Corbin, Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre last week, which resulted in a shoulder injury.
It is not yet sure whether he will be taking part in his match against Corbin at WWE TLC or not. Should he win that match, Strowman will face Lesnar for WWE Universal title at WWE Royal Rumble next year.
