Kurt Angle Announces IC Title Match For RAW

Roman Reigns first won the Intercontinental Championship from The Miz on 22nd November’s edition of RAW:

Fast forward a month, and Reigns found himself able to retain his title against Samoa Joe after he used his Champions advantage to full effect, being disqualified.  He was later fined by WWE for pushing the referee official.

Kurt Angle has now arranged a rematch as Reigns is set to take on Samoa Joe during 2018’s first episode of RAW.  Angle has also added the stipulation that Roman Reigns will lose his Intercontinental title if he loses the match via disqualification.

It’s also worth noting that The Miz has been cleared to return to the ring, after fulfilling his role in the next edition of The Marine franchise with Becky Lynch and Shawn Michaels.  It wouldn’t be surprising to see him return and make the match a triple threat. as he never claimed his contractual rematch.
