Big Fatal 5-Way Match Set for WWE Raw, Seth Rollins to Defend Universal Title on ‘Season Premiere’

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.

Shawn Michaels Reveals Why He Didn’t Wrestle Dolph Ziggler, Talks Saudi Arabia In-Ring Return

WWE Hall Of Famer, Shawn Michaels recently spoke with the State Of Combat Podcast where he discussed his return to the ring in Saudi Arabia. Below are some highlights with a H/T to WrestlingInc.com for the transcriptions.

On his return at WWE Crown Jewel:

“I guess it was because it was a totally different situation. At that point in that match, it was a special request from my boss. And again, I guess I always felt that if I am not doing WrestleMania, that was the one that anybody – I guess if I was going to come back, [going to Saudi Arabia]was the one I was going to come back to,” HBK said. “I just feel like if you are in a tag match, it’s not the same thing. I know it’s not right to say it. I don’t mean it in a negative way, but to me, it just felt like a house show that somebody asked you to make. And I went ahead and did it in a tag match, and got it over with.

“It’s one of those things that it’s funny because for 10 years, you think it’s going to go away,” Shawn continued. “But after a decade where people are going to keep asking, sometimes the best way to have people to stop doing it is to just do it, but do it only kinda, which is what I did. And now nobody talks about [me returning], which is nice.”

On why he didn’t face Dolph Ziggler:

“I never know when the phone call is going to come and I’m going to jump on a plane,” Shawn explained. “I was just sort of doing what I was asked to do. If nothing else, with all these years later, after 30 years, I’m a pretty good employee. I just do what I am told, so to speak. It was fun to do but there was absolutely no thought of me and Dolph or anything like that. It was always going to be Bill Goldberg, but perhaps they needed somebody to light the fuse for Dolph Ziggler in that respect and I was the guy to do it as best as I could.”

AEW Set To Air On Tape Delay In The West Coast

Despite some belief that it would air live, it has now been confirmed that AEW will, in fact, be airing on a tape delay in the West Coast.

What this means is that AEW will actually still be going head-to-head with NXT because WWE’s product is also being shown on a tape delay in the West Coast.

Fans in the West Coast will be able to find a live feed if they have DirectTV, as that carries an East Coast feed for the entire nation, the TNT app also offers the same for those who don’t want to wait.
