WWE has announced a big Fatal 5-Way match for this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw, in order to determine who will be challenging Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship next week on the Sept. 30 edition of the show.
Participating in the match will be U.S. Champion AJ Styles, Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura, one half of the Raw Tag Team Champions Robert Roode, the high-flying sensation Ricochet, and the legendary Rey Mysterio.
WWE is referring to the Sept. 30 edition of Raw as the “season premiere” to coincide with the Fall television schedule. What’s interesting about them spending time promoting another world title match is that Rollins is already slated to face The Fiend at Hell in a Cell for the Universal Championship.
That match takes place just 6 days before the pay-per-view, and 4 days before the Smackdown debut on FOX, where Brock Lesnar will be challenging Kofi Kingston for the WWE Championship.
