Kevin Owens wins the Intercontinental Championship on RAW

Football News

For weeks now, every prediction for this Sunday's Fastlane main event between Dean Ambrose, Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns has given Ambrose no chance at all.

Largely down to the fact that Ambrose held the Intercontinental Championship, no-one saw him progressing to WrestleMania with a title already around his waist.

New Champion

Well that is no longer the problem as Ambrose has now lost the title, and it all started from RAW's opening segment.

Ambrose once again tried to provoke Brock Lesnar to kick off RAW but rather than being confronted by the Beast Incarnate, he was welcomed by Stephanie McMahon.

McMahon informed Ambrose that he would have to defend his title then and there in a rare Fatal 5-way match.

Going against Kevin Owens, Dolph Ziggler, Tyler Breeze and Stardust, Ambrose put up a good fight:

It just wasn't good enough for Ambrose as he saw Owens leave with his title and crown himself a two time champion.

The match came with one added stipulation however, McMahon announced that should Ambrose's friend Roman Reigns get involved in the match, Ambrose would be disqualified and lose his spot in the triple threat match on Sunday.

A tough spot for both men but watching Ambrose lose his title must of been just as painful for Reigns as it was Ambrose himself.

New Champion, Old Challenger

It didn't take long for Kevin Owens to find himself a challenger for the title as he was confronted by Dolph Ziggler after the match.

Owens and Ziggler have been battling for several weeks now and Ziggler believes that since he has beaten Owens, he deserves a title shot.

Owens refused Ziggler's first attempt to goad him into a title match, but it was later confirmed on RAW that the match will go ahead this Sunday.
