- WWE Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins retained over Kevin Owens in an wonderful match that went 20 minutes or so.

Oh, and there will also be a huge match that the wrestling fans will love as Kevin Owens has answered Seth Rollins' open challenge for the Intercontinental Title.

- This week's RAW saw Bobby Roode defeat Baron Corbin and No Way Jose to qualify for the men's Money In the Bank Ladder Match next month. With consecutive failures under his non-belt, it might be time for a new challenger to take on the Beast Incarnate as RAW general manager Kurt Angle informed the big dog that higher powers in the WWE had officially barred Reigns from taking part in any qualification match to become the number one contender.

- Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre defeated Finn Balor and Braun Strowman.

And Roman Reigns will be there.
