A title match has been announced for next Monday’s “WWE Raw” in which United States Champion Bobby Lashley will win his gold medal against Seth “Freakin” Rollins.

Rollins ran into Lashley backstage during Monday’s episode of “Raw.” Rollins called himself “the face of Monday Night Raw.” Lashley did not take kindly to those words and told Rollins “the one who has the gold is the face of Monday Night Raw.” Rollins then said that Lashley’s While the title is not exactly what he had in mind when he said that he would go after the gold, he would “happily take [it] off [his] shoulder” before exiting the challenge. Lashley accepted.

Lashley won the United States Championship for the third time in his career when he defeated Theory at Money in the Bank in June. Since then, Lashley has defended the title against various superstars on the RED brand, including Ciampa, AJ Styles, and most recently, The Miz.

Monday’s “Raw” began with Rollins entering the ring and announcing that he was focused on eliminating Matt Riddle in favor of chasing championship gold. Ever since Riddle gave Rollins an RKO from a ladder and cost him the Money in the Bank briefcase, the two have been at odds. Rollins placed Riddle on the shelf after he was dismissed during the July 25 episode of “Raw”, effectively ruling the pair out of the match at SummerSlam. Despite this, Riddle still appeared on the show and Rollins launched another attack. Riddle seeks revenge on Rollins for his actions, leading to a match between the two at Clash at the Castle, with Rollins eventually coming out on top.
