The following matches are advertised for the WWE Clash of Champions pay-per-view, which will be held on December 17 in Boston, Massachusetts at TD Garden.
-AJ Styles vs. Jinder Mahal for the WWE Championship.
-Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn vs. Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura with Shane McMahon as special referee (Owens and Zayn will be fired if they lose).
-The Usos vs. New Day vs. Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin vs. Rusev and Aiden English in a four-way for the Smackdown Tag Titles.
-Charlotte Flair vs. Natalya in a lumberjack match for the Smackdown Women’s Championship.
-Baron Corbin vs. Bobby Roode vs. Dolph Ziggler in a Triple Threat for the U.S. Championship.
Powell’s POV: Shane McMahon named himself special referee of the tag match and announced the stipulation, which didn’t appear to sit well with Daniel Bryan’s character. WWE also added Rusev and English to the tag title match, and made the women’s championship match a lumberjack match. They have crammed a lot of talent into five matches so it will be interesting to see how they fill out the rest of the card.
