Kevin Owens first match as WWE Universal Champion announced

Published 5 Comments

The ending to Monday Night Raw this week saw one of the craziest swerves that we have witnessed for some time in the WWE.

Kevin Owens became the WWE Universal Champion in his first big title match after some interference from Triple H, who hit Pedigrees on Roman Reigns and then Seth Rollins to allow Owens to become the new champion.

We don't know Triple H's motives for his actions, or what will happen from here, but at least we do know who he will be defending his title against first.

According to a report from Raj Giri of Wrestling Inc, it has been revealed that Owens' first scheduled defense of his title is going to take place in London next week.

That special event, as part of a RAW tour, will see Owens defend the Universal Championship in a triple threat match against two very big rivals.

Those two men are Seth Rollins and Sami Zayn, who both have reason to not be so happy at the Canadian.

Rollins had the Universal Title basically stolen from him by Owens and HHH, while Zayn has been locked in a feud with KO for years now - with Owens actually beat Zayn to become the NXT Champion last year. 

Zayn will seemingly be hoping to get revenge on his former ally.

This will be Owens' first title defense unless he has a match on Monday Night Raw next week.
