WWE Live is set to make its way to India on December 8 and 9 for two live events in the capital city of New Delhi. The company had previously toured the country in early 2016.

Headlining the event will be Indian-origin wrestler and WWE Champion Jinder Mahal, who will take on “The Prizefighter” Kevin Owens in what is sure to be a blockbuster main event. Mahal had announced this match when he came to India in October.

Also on the card will be Roman Reigns, the enforcer of the recently-reunited stable The Shield. The “Big Dog” will reprise his month-long rivalry with the “Monster Among Men” Braun Strowman.

Reigns’ fellow Shield members Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins will defend their RAW Tag Team Championships against the team they beat at SummerSlam to win the titles in the first place: Sheamus and Cesaro.

In another high-profile championship match, RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss will defend her championship against “The Boss” Sasha Banks, who had defeated her for the belt at SummerSlam. Bliss would win the belt back eight days later.

In a grudge match that has been some time in the making, “The Demon” Finn Balor will face off against the eerie Bray Wyatt.
