SummerSlam is over and we’re heading toward the next pay-per-view event of the season with WWE Clash of Champions 2019 happening on September 15th at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. After a hiatus last year, we’ve got some big names on the match card and, of course, lots of title matches in the mix. After all, the idea behind this PPV event is that every championship must be defended. Here’s a preview of what we know so far about Clash of Champions and a few of our own predictions. And if you need tickets, we’ve got some starting as low as $44 here on Razorgator!

WWE Clash of Champions Match Card
Charlotte Flair vs. Bayley for the SmackDown Women’s Championship
The Queen is back in the spotlight at this PPV event taking on the people’s champ, Bayley. Flair challenged the lovable champion on A Moment of Bliss, saying that she is the brand and face of the SmackDown Women’s Division (she also made fun of Bayley’s side ponytail). Bayley came out, reminded Flair that she’s the champ, knocked The Queen out of her chair, and accepted. We’re not sure that the crowd is ready for a possible 10-time champion Flair – many have been hoping some other female stars would get a shot – so we’ll give this one to Bayley.
Braun Strowman vs. Seth Rollins for the WWE Universal Championship
This newly successful tag team duo will battle each other for the biggest belt in the WWE. Strowman has long had his eye on the Universal Title (and got really close to winning it a few times – remember his showdowns with Brock Lesnar?) so this Monday on Raw, he challenged his partner for the belt. The Architect said that he’s “not gonna like it” but of course, he accepted. The thing is, neither of these guys can afford to lose. Rollins has had a quick rise to the top but we also hear that Strowman is in line for a big push by the WWE. Let’s shake things up and call this one for The Monster Among Men.
Randy Orton vs. Kofi Kingston for the WWE Championship
SummerSlam repeat here. This feud is old and it’s still not dead. We don’t expect it to end here either. The Viper hit Kingston with an RKO on SmackDown and the former New Day member retaliated with a surprise Trouble in Paradise. Since we’re not sure this battle is over and we’ve still got Hell in a Cell coming up in October, this one could go either way.
Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode vs. Braun Strowman and Seth Rollins for the Raw Tag Team Title
Strowman and Rollins have a big night ahead of them as they defend this title first before fighting for the Universal Championship. Maybe this is how the WWE keeps both these guys in the spotlight. We love a little heel Ziggler action, and this new partnership with Roode makes for a fun little tag team, but we think the newly crowned Rollins and Strowman duo will retain the title. (Be on the lookout for some underhanded tactics by the heels though!)

King of the Ring Tournament Final – Raw Finalist vs. SmackDown Finalist
We won’t really know the details on this match until the September 10th episode of SmackDown. For Raw, it will either be Samoa Joe, Baron Corbin, Ricochet, or Cedric Alexander. For SmackDown, it’ll either be Elias, Andrade, Ali, or Chad Gable. There hasn’t been a King of the Ring since 2015, but it’s typically used to propel the career of the winner (for example, Triple H, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Kurt Angle are all former winners). We’re calling this one for Ali. He showed tons of promise when he defeated Daniel Bryan months ago, and we see more success in his future. The other option? Samoa Joe. That guy has hung around forever, and he deserves to break through.
Becky Lynch vs. ??? for the Raw Women’s Championship
The one we’re all waiting for. We finally saw Sasha Banks back on TV when she attacked both Lynch and Natalya on Raw. The Boss is angry that she’s not higher on the card, having been relegated to a tag team match at Wrestlemania when she believes she set the standard for the Women’s Division. And she does have a point there! This could be the return of Sasha Banks to the spotlight after four months away from the ring, but that just seems too big a matchup for this lesser-known PPV event. It could also be Natalya who takes on The Man (yes, another SummerSlam rematch). Let’s hope it’s Banks but not hold our breath.
Humberto Carrillo vs. Drew Gulak for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship
Carrillo defeated Oney Lorcan on WWE’s 205 Live for this shot at the title. This one is anyone’s to win!
Not yet confirmed, but likely:
Look out for The Miz to take on Shinsuke Nakamura for the Intercontinental Title and The Revival to take on Big E and Xavier Woods for the SmackDown Tag Team Title. Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross will also defend the Women’s Tag Team Titles, but we don’t know who they’ll face yet.
The 2019 WWE Clash of Champions will begin with a kick-off show at 6PM EST on Sunday, September 15th live from the Spectrum Center in Charlotte. The match card begins at 7PM and you can watch it live (get tickets), via pay-per-view, or on the WWE Network.
