After Survivor Series, but before January’s Royal Rumble, SmackDown Live hosts Clash of Champions. The PPV is set to feature title challenges for all 4 Champions.
The WWE Universe is already aware of Jinder Mahal’s announcement last Tuesday to invoke the contractual rematch clause for Clash of Champions, which seemed to make the most sense after he lost his WWE Championship to AJ Styles:
WWE has now released a video of Byron Saxton providing the details for the other 3 title matches at Clash of Champions.
Women’s Champion, Charlotte, is set to take on Natalya, while the US Title and Tag Team Titles are being competed for in triple threat matches.
The Usos have to fend off The New Day, and Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin who have been pushed as the next tag team to threaten Jimmy and Jey’s reign. Chad Gable has already won the tag team title with his previous partner, Jason Jordan, as part of American Alpha, and enter the match as the underdogs:
In the final Championship match, Baron Corbin will defend his US title against Dolph Ziggler and Bobby Roode.
Roode has already proven his ability to defeat Ziggler, and goes into the PPV with strong potential.
However, Baron Corbin as a heel champion has the advantage and upper hand.
Gable and Benjamin seem likely to steal a win, and I think WWE will be looking to start a Roode vs Corbin feud coming out of Clash of Champions. As always, keep an eye out for Carmella who is still holding on to her Money in The Bank briefcase. And I expect AJ Styles to win his match, with a speculative Styles vs Nakamura at WrestleMania 34.
