Last week on Raw, Roman Reigns defeated The Miz to become the new Intercontinental Champion. He became the second member of The Shield to become a grand slam Champion.
After the match, he told in a backstage interview that was bringing the open challenge concept from John Cena’s United States Championship reign.
Open challenge returns on next week RAW and he will face any number of hungry competitors.
Recently, Finn Balor hinted at accepting Roman Reigns’ promise of an Intercontinental Championship match by saying he would “step up” and “step OVER,” the Big Dog.
The second WWE Wrestler to accept Roman Reigns’ open challenge was Jason Jordan who tweeted a video where he discussed losing his opportunity to compete at Survivor Series and wanting to make the best of this possible opportunity.
Cruiserweight wrestler Cedric Alexander also talked about the open challenge on Twitter and asked whether Cruiserweight wrestlers were eligible to compete.
It would be interesting to see who would be the first one to challenge Roman for the Intercontinental Title.
In my opinion, Finn Balor should be the first one to challenge Roman given that he has defeated Roman Reigns in past.
