WWE is taking the weekend off, so there aren’t any house shows scheduled until next Wednesday night (Sept. 7, 2016) at The O2 in London, England. It’s possible Kevin Owens will be made to defend his Universal championship on this coming Monday night’s episode of Raw in Kansas City but his first scheduled title defense at the moment will see him square off with a familiar foe.

While Seth Rollins is slotted in the match it’s only fitting that Sami Zayn also gets in, considering the history between the two. Indeed, advertisements have a triple threat match as the main event of the evening.

Yes, folks, Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn, in some form, is headlining a WWE live event in the year of our lord 2016.

Other matches currently advertised for the show:

  • Roman Reigns vs. Chris Jericho
  • New Day vs. Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows

It’s also worth noting that Sasha Banks is currently advertised for the show.
