WWE Clash of Champions has a stacked card and it will be this Sunday at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana. Here are the latest rumors and updated match heading into Monday Night Raw’s first brand-exclusive pay-per-view since the WWE Draft.
Kevin Owens (c) vs. Seth Rollins for the WWE Universal Championship
Kevin Owens lost momentum heading into WWE Clash of Champions after losing a non-title Steel Cage Match against Roman Reigns in this week’s episode of Raw. Seth Rollins also got the upper hand to end the show as he hit a big splash off the top of the cage onto Owens and U.S. champ Rusev.
As mentioned in a previous report, KO’s reign has not been successful in terms of ratings and live events attendance. There are rumors of him possibly dropping the title already to Rollins but nothing has been confirmed.
Rusev (c) vs. Roman Reigns for the United States Championship
Roman Reigns is looking for more than just winning the U.S. title from Rusev after getting attacked in last week’s episode of Raw. The Guy got some momentum this week when he got a huge win over Universal Champion, Kevin Owens, in non-title Steel Cage Match.
However, Reigns got beat up by Rusev and KO before Seth Rollins made the save. The feud between Reigns and Rusev has been going on for a couple of months now but is it the right time for him to win the United States championship?
Charlotte (c) vs. Sasha Banks vs. Bayley in a Triple Threat Match for the Raw Women’s Championship
Before this week’s episode of Raw, Charlotte was supposed to face Sasha Banks at WWE Clash of Champions in a one-on-one match. However, Raw GM Mick Foley added Bayley to make it a Triple Threat Match for Raw’s Women’s title.
The New Day (c) vs. Gallows & Anderson for the Raw Tag Team Championships
The New Day teamed up with Enzo & Big Cass and Sami Zayn to take on Gallows & Anderson, The Shining Stars and Chris Jericho in this week’s episode of Raw. The babyfaces got the huge win just days before WWE Clash of Champions. Xavier Woods also recorded the match on his phone and posted it online, via Wrestle Zone.
T.J. Perkins (c) vs. The Brian Kendrick for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship
The newly-crowned WWE Cruiserweight Champion and CWC winner, T.J. Perkins, will make his main roster debut at WWE Clash of Champions. He will defend the title against The Brian Kendrick, who defeated Gran Metalik, Rich Swann and Cedric Alexander on Raw to become the No. 1 contender.
Cesaro vs. Sheamus in Match No. 7 of their Best of Seven Series
Cesaro has risen up from a 0-3 deficit to tie his Best of Seven Series against Sheamus and force a Match No. 7. The winner of this match will be granted a title shot but it’s not known for which championship.
Sami Zayn vs. Chris Jericho
Despite just a couple of weeks of building Sami Zayn and Chris Jericho’s match, the thought of the two wrestlers facing each other is a joy to behold. Both Zayn and Jericho are currently two of the best wrestlers in the WWE today, capable of having a great match with anybody.
Alicia Fox vs. Nia Jax (Kickoff Match)
Nia Jax got some revenge on Alicia Fox after getting hit by a box in the face during a botched backstage segment. The dominating woman crushed Fox last week by slamming him into the barricade repeatedly before spearing her through it.
