Clash of Champions 2020 preview

The end of the month traditionally means one thing in the WWE – another pay-per-view! This time, it is the turn of Clash of Champions and this event has a number of top contests on the event card.

Whilst the spectacular was originally scheduled to take place in the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, things have not improved therefore it will have to follow the likes of SummerSlam and Payback in being hosted at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida, behind closed doors.

Nonetheless, bettors will be able to access ahead and during the event to place a wager on a number of the matches that are scheduled to take place.

This is what fans can expect to see and some opinions on who might just walk away victorious.

WWE Championship: Drew McIntyre (c) vs Randy Orton [Ambulance Match]

The feud between Drew McIntyre and Randy Orton has been entertaining and one that many would have already thought was over, however Orton is desperate to get his hands on the WWE Championship for the first time in ages. McIntrye has looked a little complacent at times, though, which may see the veteran hit an RKO and get the three-count!

WWE Universal Championship: Roman Reigns (c) vs Jey Uso

Having shocked the WWE Universe by teaming up with Paul Heyman, Roman Reigns has finally turned to the dark side of the WWE and will likely continue on his way against one of his cousins. It’ll be weird to see Jey without Jimmy, and we can’t see him being successful.

WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship: Bayley (c) vs Nikki Cross

If Sasha Banks does not have something to do with the outcome of this match, then we’ll eat our hat! She and Bayley have been having a huge war with each other and whilst Nikki Cross is a worthy opponent in her own right, expect to see ‘The Boss’ play a huge role and cost Bayley her title.

WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship: Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax (c) vs The Riott Squad (Ruby Riott and Liv Morgan)

We wouldn’t expect the belts to change hands here, as the duo of Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax will likely prove to be too strong and dominant for The Riott Squad.

WWE Raw Women’s Championship: Asuka (c) vs Zelina Vega

Billed to take place on the Clash of Champions pre-show, Asuka’s match with Zelina Vega for the WWE Raw Women’s Championship appears to be a little after-thought by the company and one that will not get the recognition it deserves. Expect Asuka to retain, though.

WWE Intercontinental Championship: Jeff Hardy (c) vs AJ Styles vs. Sami Zayn [Triple Threat Ladder Match]

The WWE Intercontinental Championship is one of the longest-running belts to be available and a classic Triple Threat match has been scheduled, with the additional element of it being a ladder match. It features some of the top talent still with the company and has the ingredients to be the best match of the night. AJ Styles walks with the belt in this one.

WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship: Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura (c) vs. Lucha House Party (Kalisto, Gran Metalik, and/or Lince Dorado)

This match was an obvious one considering how previous weeks happened. The Lucha House Party scored a victory over the Tag Team Champions in a non-title bout, therefore it was always going to be likely it will happen at the PPV. Nonetheless, Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura get the job done when it matters and retain.

WWE Raw Tag Team Championship: The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford) (c) vs Andrade and Angel Garza

Perhaps one of the hardest title matches to predict, but we would not be surprised if Andrade and Angel Garza take the titles from The Street Profits. Despite their 200+ reign, they have looked far too comfortable and a shock could be on the cards.

WWE United States Championship: Bobby Lashley (c) vs Apollo Crews

Bobby Lashley and Apollo Crews have locked up on more than a few occasions over the last couple of months, which makes this match potentially stale. Nonetheless, it will still have its entertaining spots but expect the 15-year veteran to score the victory and retain the WWE United States Championship on Sunday night.
