It’s looking like the Intercontinental Championship Open Challenge will be a “thing” for the next few weeks on Monday Night Raw as they are in a lull period before the hype begins for the Royal Rumble in a few weeks. Cedric Alexander was the first to throw his hat in the ring as a potential challenger for the title and two more WWE Superstars have stepped up they are ready for the challenge.
Jason Jordan and Finn Balor want a shot at the title on Raw. So, who will get the shot this week? We don’t know but everything should be clear within a few hours. The ironic thing about Balor issuing the challenge is that he was supposed to be in line for a shot at the WWE Universal Championship at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view in January. Vince McMahon has decided to scrap those plans but Balor fans are trying to tell the boss that he made a mistake.
One door closes and another door opens. @WWERomanReigns I WON’T miss this opportunity. Consider your challenge accepted… pic.twitter.com/7Zz0SX9FIX
