WWE shuffles injury-plagued lineup for overseas tour

Kevin Owens vs. Dean Ambrose

Due to the knee injury suffered by now-former WWE Champion Seth Rollins on the first night of their tour, the WWE has made immediate changes to balance out the star power of the two touring groups, sending Dean Ambrose and WWE Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens to the "Rollins tour".

Starting tonight at London's O2 Arena and for the rest of the tour, Owens vs. Ambrose will be moved from the Roman Reigns led-tour to the former Rollins tour, main eventing those shows in IC title matches. The Genting Arena in Birmingham, UK, where Sunday's show was to be headlined by Rollins vs. Kane, is already now listing the new main event. Ambrose and Owens were originally scheduled for Barcelona, Spain, with the Reigns tour.

Kane vs. Big Show (the main event for Thursday's Cardiff, Wales, event), is now billed as the No. 2 match on the show, while WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day vs. Dudleys is also advertised. 

The Reigns tour top three matches going forward, and as scheduled for tonight are:

- Reigns vs. Bray Wyatt street fight

- Ryback & The Usos vs. Braun Strowman & Erick Rowan & Luke Harper

- U.S. Champion Alberto Del Rio vs. King Barrett vs. Neville
