Now, leaks of local advertisements have revealed that Owens will defend the Universal Championship for the first time against Rollins at Clash of Champions on September 25. On top of that, recent rumors have suggested how Triple H, the Raw commissioner Stephanie McMahon, and the Raw general manager Mick Foley will get involved in the match.

According to Cageside Seats: "There are local advertisements now running with Kevin Owens vs. Seth Rollins, with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon & Mick Foley in each corner, respectively, in a Universal title match as the main event of Clash of Champions."
Hopefully, we will learn more this week on Raw, but it sounds like Triple H will be in the corner for the current Universal Champion, while McMahon and Foley will be backing The Architect.
Ultimately, this feud is building towards an eventual clash between Rollins and The Game later on this year or the start of next, with the majority of fans and critics believing it will come at Survivor Series. So the chances of Rollins winning the title look slim, as Triple H will likely stop him doing so.
This feud will also help transition the former Shield member from heel to face, which is what a lot of WWE fans have been dying to see for The Architect since he came back from his knee injury earlier this year.
