Seth Rollins' title defense against Damian Priest set for June 5

Seth Rollins stays true to his promise by defending his championship on a non-PLE event on the June 5 episode of Monday Night RAW.

Seth Rollins doesn't seem like he's letting his obligations with the MCU mess with his time with the WWE.

WWE fans can barely hold their excitement as they're finally seeing a championship defended in a non-PLE event in Seth Rollins' second appearance on Monday Night RAW after winning the World Heavyweight Championship.

On the upcoming episode of Monday Night RAW on June 5, Rollins will face off against Damian Priest from The Judgment Day with the title belt on the line.

This clash of the titans was sparked by Rollins' audacious open challenge, which he issued on social media. Fans across the globe watched in suspense as the reigning champion declared his intention to step into the ring with anyone who dares to challenge him. It wasn't long before Damian Priest, also known as The Punishment, answered the call.

Rollins' open challenge did more than set the stage for an epic match; it also created a break from the usual programming.

Rollins revealed that the last men's World Championship defense on RAW was in November 2021 with Big E. Rollins wants everyone to know that he's here to buck that trend.

Seth Rollins' new championship run is already off to a good start after doing something for the first time in RAW in two years.

As the inaugural World Heavyweight Champion, having triumphed over AJ Styles at Night of Champions, Rollins has proven his mettle and is ready to usher in a new era of wrestling.

Priest, on the other hand, is no stranger to title fights. His impressive wrestling resume includes a successful run as United States Champion in 2021 and 2022, having held on to the title from his victory over Sheamus at SummerSlam 2021. The Judgment Day faction has been causing a stir on RAW for months, and it's high time Priest returned to the championship circle.

In their previous encounter on RAW, Rollins and Styles defeated The Judgment Day's Finn Balor and Damian Priest in a tag team match. But, with the championship on the line and the backing of his comrades, Priest is eager to prove his worth and capture the gold. We can expect Priest to have the full support of his allies, which includes Balor, Rhea Ripley, and Dominik Mysterio.

The upcoming bout was made official during the WWE Friday Night SmackDown on FOX, which saw Roman Reigns receive a newly designed unified title belt.

As wrestling fans worldwide wait with bated breath, one thing is certain: Monday Night RAW will be a night to remember.

We're curious to find out now just how long Seth Rollins is going to be the World Heavyweight Champion.

However, the wrestling community, while united in its excitement, are somewhat divided over who's fighting for the belt. Some fans had hoped for Dominik to challenge Rollins, envisioning a nail-biting scenario where Dom would even score a couple of close calls against the defending champion. However, Priest's acceptance of the open challenge brings its own thrill. Besides, who knows? The Judgment Day could very well still push the younger and antagonistic Mysterio to fight for championship gold.
