- Roman Reigns vs. Jinder Mahal is now official for Monday's RAW, which takes place just days before their scheduled match at the WWE Money In the Bank pay-per-view. Below is Reigns' response to Jinder's Twitter challenge and WWE's announcement confirming the match:

Roman Reigns accepts Jinder Mahal's challenge for a match this Monday on Raw

Jinder Mahal & Elias stole a tag team win from Roman Reigns & Seth Rollins last Monday on Raw. Later in the night, The Big Dog got a piece of The Modern Day Maharaja in a backstage encounter, and now it appears the WWE Universe won't have to wait until WWE Money in the Bank to see the archrivals square off.

Friday on a WWE.com Exclusive, Mahal challenged Reigns to a match for Monday Night Raw, and the former WWE Champion accepted one day later. With animosity between the two Superstars at an all-time high, will there will be anything left of either competitor by the June 17 pay-per-view?
