As reported by NoDq.com, the planned Kevin Owens vs Dean Ambrose match for the Intercontinental Championship is now very unlikely to take place.
With both Superstars set to be involved in the Heavyweight title tournament, it appears that the WWE either don't have time to have the IC title bout on the match card, or it would simply be too much for the two wrestlers to pull double duty.
It is a shame that the WWE has been forced to cancel what was an enticing match, especially as the fued has been building in recent weeks.
Owens has been growing his reputation as a top heel and defending his title against Ambrose would have only boosted that status. WWE fans, meanwhile, have been desperate for Ambrose to get his hands on a title and saw Survivor Series as a good shot for the ex-Shield member.
Fans could still see Owens vs Ambrose at Survivor Series, however, should the pair progress to the semi-final stage of the title tournament.
Still, with neither Superstar likely to go all the way to the top prize, it looks like Ambrose is going to have to wait to get any sort of title belt in his hands.
WWE fans: Would Ambrose make a good IC or heavyweight champion? Have your say in the comments below...
