WWE Monday Night RAW Live Results: Who Answers Seth Rollins Open Challenge?

Title defenses are expected to go down on the latest episode of WWE's Monday Night RAW.

According to WWE.com, Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins is set to issue an open challenge for his title tonight. With multiple Superstars staking claim to answering that challenge on social media, who will step up to take on The Architect?

The other title defense comes in the RAW Tag Team division as the champs, Authors of Pain, take on Bobby Roode and Chad Gable. Roode and Gable got the best of AOP last week, but can they capture the Tag Titles or will the champs snuff them out?

On the non-title front, acting RAW general manager Baron Corbin (along with Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre) took out Braun Strowman for an extended period of time last week. Finn Balor is stepping up to take on his longtime nemesis in Corbin, but will "The Constable" be alone during their match?

Here's everything that happened on the Nov. 26 episode of Monday Night RAW.
