Kevin Owens answers Seth Rollins open challenge

You can’t have a WWE event in Canada without the presence of Kevin Owens.

With this week’s Monday Night Raw taking place from the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Owens made a surprise appearance and even got himself a title shot.

In search of the next challenger to his Intercontinental title, Seth Rollins laid out an open invitation for anyone in the back to get a crack at his belt. Owens answered the call and then took Rollins to the limit.

Taking a bye week last Monday night, Owens came out fresh and showed no ill effects from his match with Braun Strowman at SummerSlam.

Two near falls from Owens got the entire Raw live crowd behind their fellow countryman.

First, Owens hit a Stunner that earned him close two and half. Later in the match, KO countered a buckle bomb from Rollins into a violent Super Kick right on the chin of the champion for a two and three quarters pin attempt.

Running out of options, a spectacular moonsault attempt from Owens missed the mark and it was enough of an opening to allow Rollins to hit a Curb Stomp for the 1-2-3.

Could this be the first step towards a possible Kevin Owens face turn?
