Clash of Champions is just what you want in a WWE Pay-Per-View event: a stacked card, belts up for grabs, and a night rife with the potential for shockwaves across the WWE Universe.
The annual Pay-Per-View event is the one night a year when every strap must be put on the line. It’s been an exciting past few months watching storylines develop and contenders emerge. Everything comes to a head on Sunday, 9/27 at 7 PM ET, live from the ThunderDome in Orlando, Florida, and SLING has the Pay-Per-View!
Here’s what we’ll be watching for:
Can “The Viper” take back the WWE Championship?
It’s been quite the ride following Randy Orton recently. After losing in his bid to take the Championship belt from Drew McIntyre at SummerSlam, Orton then attacked the champ on an episode of Raw and demanded a rematch. To get that rematch, Orton had to go through Keith Lee at Payback. He finally gets his rematch against McIntyre at Clash of Champions, where he’ll be vying to hold the WWE Championship belt for the 10th time.
Is blood thicker than a championship belt?
Since emerging seemingly out of nowhere at SummerSlam, Roman Reigns made quick work of both Braun Strowman and “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt at Payback to regain the Universal Championship. Standing in the way of his defense at Clash of Champions is Jey Uso, who won a four-way match against Big E, King Corbin and Matt Riddle on SmackDown for the opportunity to dethrone his cousin.
What’s next for Bayley?
After retaining her individual SmackDown Women’s Championship at SummerSlam, Payback was the beginning of the end for Bayley’s long-tenured tag-team partnership with Sascha Banks. After losing the belt to Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler, Bayley went full heel and attacked Banks on a subsequent episode of SmackDown. Nikki Cross stands in the way of Bayley’s defense, having won a four-way match with Tamina, Lacey Evans and Alexa Bliss to get her title shot.
