Earlier this week it was reported by those over at Wrestling Observer Radio that Braun Strowman vs. Seth Rollins for The Architect’s newly-won Universal Championship was the planned main event for next month’s Clash Of Champions pay-per-view.
In this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer has been able to go a few steps further to reveal more matches that could take place on the night.
On top of Rollins vs. Strowman, Meltzer is reporting that WWE Champion Kofi Kingston will be defending his title against Randy Orton once again, while the returning Sasha Banks will be facing Becky Lynch for the Raw Women’s Championship.
On top of that, the finals of the King Of The Ring tournament will be taking place at Clash Of Champions.
“They seem to be building Roman Reigns vs. Daniel Bryan, and a Smackdown tag title match with Kofi Kingston & Big E vs. The Revival seemed to be set up on television,” Meltzer continued. “Reigns vs. Bryan is part of a storyline that has yet to fully play out. New Day vs. Revival at press time is a match the Smackdown side has pitched to Vince McMahon but he has not approved of it as yet to be on the card.
“The general rule of Clash of Champions is that all titles are defended. So we may get that Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Ali match that was pushed a few weeks ago.”
Clash Of Champions goes down on Sunday, September 15.
