Rollins vs. Ambrose IC title match official for WWE TLC


The first match is official for next month's TLC pay-per-view.

During Survivor Series, it was announced that Seth Rollins will defend his Intercontinental Championship against Dean Ambrose at TLC. They've been feuding since Ambrose turned against Rollins and beat him down on the October 22 episode of Raw.

The IC title match was announced during a backstage interview segment with Rollins, who had defeated United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura in a non-title champion vs. champion match earlier in the night at Survivor Series.

Rollins and Ambrose had won the Raw Tag Team titles from Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre right before the angle where Ambrose turned heel. Rollins wrestled on his own and lost the titles to AOP earlier this month, and there was a segment on Raw's go-home show for Survivor Series where Ambrose burned his Shield vest.

TLC is taking place at the SAP Center in San Jose, California on December 16.
