Kevin Owens added to WWE Championship match at Day 1


Kevin Owens has been added to the WWE Championship match that will take place at the Day 1 pay-per-view event on January 1st.

Owens was added to the match after Seth Rollins interfered in the Raw main event between Owens and Big E. Rollins attacked Owens, giving Owens the disqualification win. Per the stipulation of the match, Owens was then added to the pay-per-view event, with Rollins appearing frustrated as the show ended.

The show opened with Rollins announcing he would get the title match against Big E. Later, Owens told Rollins backstage that he would be added to the match if he won in the main event tonight. Rollins was initially told by WWE officials Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville that it wasn’t true, but they then told Rollins later in the show that the idea was a good one and they would go with it.

Day 1 will take place at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.
