As PWMania.com previously reported, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins is set to defend his title on Monday’s RAW.

Rollins took to Twitter today, while traveling to White Plains, New York for Saturday’s WWE live event, to ask fans when the top men’s title was last defended on a RAW episode.

“About to jump on this flight to White Plains and was wondering….anyone here remember the last time the men’s Heavyweight Title was defended on an episode of #RAW? @USANetwork @WWE,” he wrote.

Rollins then issued an Open Challenge for Monday’s RAW in Hartford, CT.

“My man @WWEBigE was the last defender of the crown…..in November 2021?!?? Let’s change that. Open Challenge for the World Heavyweight Championship is officially LIVE for THIS Monday night in Hartford! Line ‘em up! #RAW @WWE @USANetwork,” he wrote.

Damian Priest responded to Rollins’ Open Challenge with a video response. He discussed working the RAW main event and promised to bring the WWE World Heavyweight Championship to The Judgment Day.

“Seth,” Priest began with a laugh. “You know, making an Open Challenge is noble but very foolish. Consider your Open Challenge closed because I accept. Now in the main event of Monday Night RAW, where I’ve always belonged, Damian Priest brings the World Heavyweight Championship to The Judgment Day.”

“#AndNew [scales emoji]” Priest captioned the video.

Since 2021, Priest and Rollins have worked numerous multi-man matches, but this would be their first-ever singles match, if it happens. Rollins and AJ Styles defeated Priest and Finn Balor in this week’s RAW main event.

As of this writing, neither WWE nor Rollins had responded to Priest’s response.

The following is an updated RAW card for Monday’s show at Hartford’s XL Center, as well as the aforementioned tweets:

* Women’s Money In the Bank qualifier: Becky Lynch vs. Sonya Deville

* Women’s Money In the Bank qualifier: Zoey Stark vs. Natalya
