WWE Clash of Champions is live from Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, IN on Sunday night. The stakes are for many WWE Superstars as titles are on the line in five matches on the card.
Kevin Owens vs. Seth Rollins for the WWE Universal Championship
There's no doubt this will be the match of the night. Owens and Rollins are two of the best in the business. The big question coming into this match is what role does Triple H play. He hasn't been on TV since he helped Owens win the title, so it will interesting to see if there's more story development. In my opinion this is the the easiest match to predict because there's no way WWE is taking the belt off of Owens this soon. The only question is whether Triple H shows up or not.
Roman Reigns vs. Rusev for the WWE U.S. Championship
I've enjoyed this feud. Rusev and Reigns are both solid in the ring so I expect these two to deliver in a big way in what should be the blowoff to their feud. This is a tough match to predict. The U.S. Championship seems below Reigns, but a win could be the start of a slow rebuild back to the main event. Rusev has been excellent as the U.S. Champion. I think a loss by Rusev hurts him more than a Regins loss.
Charlotte vs. Sasha Banks vs. Baylee for the RAW Women's Championship
The RAW Women's Division is a mess. Baylee is already an afterthought. Sasha Banks needs rebuilding and Dana Brooke just isn't very good. Expect there to be friction between Banks and Baylee while Brooke interferes in the match.
New Day vs. Gallows & Anderson for the RAW Tag Team Championship
I'm going to spare you the rant about how WWE completely mishandled the booking of Gallows and Anderson. It's unfortunate that WWE has put Gallows and Anderson in a position to where they need the belts to get them over. It's a true indictment on WWE’s inability to plan and tell compelling stories. Such a waste. Anyway, I'll go with a meaningless title change here.
Winner: Gallows & Anderson
Cesaro vs. Sheamus to decide their Best of Seven Series
This feud has been better than I expected. The matches in their best of seven series have been entertaining. The winner of this will earn a shot at a Champioship in the future. I expect a hard hitting, quality match between these two. We’ve seen Sheamus at the top of the card and we all know how well that went, so I'm going with Cesaro to finally get his shot at the top.
Sami Zayn vs. Chris Jericho
I wish this match had more build up. I'm looking forward to this match as much as any match on the card simply because of the talent in the ring. I'm hoping this feud continues well past Clash of Champions so we can see two can do with more time to build their feud. Look for Jericho to score a tainted victory and the feud to continue.
TJ Perkins vs. Brian Kendrick for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship
Formerly as Manik in TNA, now TJ Perkins became the first WWE Cruiserweight Champion since 2007. He’ll take on veteran, Brian Kendrick. I couldn't be happier for Kendrick, a talented and well respected wrestler getting one last run with the company. He’ll serve as an excellent mentor to the young talent on the roster, but this is all about Perkins and showcasing him as the man in the Cruiserweight Division.
Nia Jax vs. Alicia Fox
The Kickoff Match features RAW’s force of nature, Nia Jax as she takes on Alicia Fox. The former champion, Fox will look to stop the path of destruction caused by Jax. Unfortunately for her, it's not going to happen.
Enjoy the show!
