Former Shield teammates Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns will finally do battle, one-on-one at next weeks Night of Champions pay-per-view.

After weeks of back and forth from the former "brothers" and after Rollins and Kane took Dean Ambrose out, Reigns stepped up and looks like he could be the one to finally stop Mr Money in the Bank.

This week's Raw ended with Seth Rollins and The Authority standing tall after Roman received a curb stomp off a steel chair, this following the abuse he had already suffered at the hands of Randy Orton. But last night on Smackdown, Orton and Rollins took on Chris Jericho and Reigns and this time it was the team of Y2J and The Powerhouse that stood tall.

After this match-up another match was also announced, which sees Jericho go one-on-one with the Viper that is Randy Orton, this is a step away from the rivalry Y2J has been having with Bray Wyatt since his return a few months ago and following the Sister Abigail in the steel cage Monday night on Raw, the thought was that maybe that rivalry wasn't completely over.

Putting Jericho in a match with Randy says that the feud with Wyatt is technically over, Chris is set to depart WWE after next Sunday's pay-per-view so the match with Orton could be his last and Wyatt interfering would be a little pointless given the circumstances.

Talking of interferences, it seems the talk from most of the WWE Universe now is that Seth Rollins could be set to defeat Roman Reigns before going on to cash in on the winner of the Brock Lesnar/John Cena world title match. 

This could well be the case, with many thinking Cena could win and Rollins could attempt a cash in, only for Dean Ambrose to arrive dressed as a referee and yet again foil Seth's chance at becoming world champion.


Ambrose's filming of Lockdown is wrapped the day before Night of Champions and he could well be set to make an appearance, he wouldn't be advertised if WWE wanted it to be a shock and it would put Ambrose and Rollins back into the feud they were having before he left.

This would set up a fight for the briefcase at Hell in a Cell next month and could potentially see Ambrose walking out with the one thing Seth holds above him. 

Either way, Roman vs Seth has been one of the matches Shield fans have been waiting for since Seth turned on The Shield the night after Payback and hopefully, it wont disappoint.
