It was announced on Friday that Seth Rollins will defend the Intercontinental Title against Elias at WWE’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view on June 17 at the Allstate Arena in Chicago. The match was expected after Elias attacked Rollins with a guitar shot to the back this past Monday on Raw.
Each man tweeted about the match in the last 24 hours.
