WWE announced three major matches tonight during WWE Raw, the first of which will see Seth Rollins get his Intercontinental Title rematch against Dolph Ziggler on Raw next week.
It was also announced tonight that this week’s WWE Smackdown Live will feature Samoa Joe, Big E, Daniel Bryan, The Miz and Rusev in a Gauntlet match to determine who will face AJ Styles for the WWE Title at Extreme Rules.
