WWE had a strong show in August’s SummerSlam, also on Sunday seems to follow this up using its Clash of Champions pay-per-view. Since WWE has competition in the form of upstart company AEW, each huge series counts greater than ever. Headlining Clash of Champions is Seth Rollins protecting his Universal Championship against Braun Strowman. Complicating matters longer is Rollins and Strowman now function as the Raw Tag Team Champions: They’ll defend the tag names early in the series before confronting each other at the primary event.
Pro wrestling, am I correct?
It may be a night in which the girls steal the series, however, as equally Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championships are being defended in fascinating games. Becky Lynch defends her Raw name against a returning Sasha Banks, while Charlotte Flair appears to turn into a 10-time champ by beating Bayley for its SmackDown strap. Elsewhere, Kofi Kingston defends his WWE Championship against Randy Orton at a SummerSlam rematch.
A possible highlight is AJ Styles vs. Cedric Alexander for the US Championship. AJ Styles is one of the organization’s best actors, right there together with Seth Rollins, and Cedric Alexander is excellent also. AJ is coming from a disappointing series of games with Ricochet however, so we are going to have to see whether this can meet its enormous potential.
