At SummerSlam, The Kingslayer is poised to knock Dolph Ziggler off his throne in a highly anticipated Intercontinental Championship rematch.
Ziggler took down Rollins to lay claim to the Intercontinental Title for the sixth time on the June 17 edition of Raw, thanks to an assist by Drew McIntyre. Although Rollins technically got even by defeating Ziggler in the championship rematch the following week, McIntyre's interference caused a disqualification and once again kept the gold around The Showoff's waist.
This led to WWE Extreme Rules, where the resilient competitors left everything on the canvas and battled it out to a 4-4 draw in a classic 30-Minute WWE Iron Man showdown, though Ziggler emerged victorious in sudden death overtime once again thanks to The Scottish Terminator.
With such controversy, it is no wonder that Raw General Manager Kurt Angle announced the rematch for the workhorse title at The Biggest Event of the Summer, but will The Architect overcome The Showoff and his imposing friend to finally recapture the illustrious gold?
