WWE pay-per-views keep coming with the New Era’s busier schedule, and on Sunday night in Indianapolis the Raw roster will stage their first brand-exclusive show: Clash of Champions.
Here is the full card for the pay-per-view, which begins at 8:00 p.m. ET on the WWE Network. The kickoff show will begin at 7:00 p.m. ET.
Kickoff show: Nia Jax vs. Alicia Fox
Nia Jax’s reign of terror over local competitors has finally led to her first pay-per-view match against Alicia Fox, who was brutally tossed around the arena on Raw by Nia Jax earlier this month.
Chris Jericho vs. Sami Zayn
Sami Zayn took a cell phone shot to the head from Chris Jericho and then found himself on the List of Jericho the following week. Jericho has arguably been the MVP of the company lately, and while this match isn’t for a title, it’s still a must-watch.
Cesaro vs. Sheamus in Match 7 (series tied 3-3)
Although it was obvious this seven-match series was always going to go the distance and there aren’t any real stakes, Cesaro and Sheamus can always deliver 10 to 15 solid minutes of wrestling.
T.J. Perkins vs. Brian Kendrick for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship
T.J. Perkins became the new Cruiserweight champion by winning the Cruiserweight Classic over Gran Metalik, while 37-year-old veteran Kendrick made a return to WWE after seven long years away and won a Fatal Four Way on Raw to earn a title shot. This match could easily steal the show.
Rusev vs. Roman Reigns for the United States Championship
The Rusev-Reigns feud has been an underrated slow burn that stretches back to early August, and while it remains to be seen if Reigns’ place is among the Universal Championship contenders or the U.S. title contenders, his work with Rusev has certainly helped his standing with WWE fans.
The New Day vs. Gallows and Anderson for the Raw Tag Team Championship
I’ve previously argued that it might be time to shake up the tag division by having The New Day lose, but Gallows and Anderson have struggled to gain much momentum since being separated from AJ Styles. The New Day retaining seems like the most likely option here.
Charlotte vs. Sasha Banks vs. Bayley for the Raw Women’s Championship
WWE recognized that the controversial end to the No. 1 contender’s match was actually a double pin and gave Bayley her first title shot in a triple threat match. You could make an argument for any one of these women to win, but Bayley might need a bit more time to connect with fans before a title reign.
Kevin Owens vs. Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship
Triple H has been mysteriously absent from programming (again) since he helped Kevin Owens win the Universal title on Raw earlier this month, so it seems like another surprise appearance could be on the cards for Clash of Champions. Owens surprisingly lost his last match on Raw to Roman Reigns, which ended with Seth Rollins diving of the top of the cage.
