WWE Clash Of Champions 2019 Results, Including A Wrestler's Return

Wild night in Charlotte…

Ten title matches and one crazy non-title brawl filled out an action-packed night in Charlotte, NC, as WWE Clash of Champions did plenty to set up Hell in a Cell next month, particularly, the presumed main event.

The last company pay-per-view prior to SmackDown's move to FOX, as well as the next draft, was filled with plenty of solid action.

WWE Cruiserweight: Drew Gulak def. Humberto Carrillo and Lince Dorado in 10:10

Very fast-paced match, to no one's surprise. Fans reacted highly for a spot in which Gulak had Dorado on his shoulders outside, and Carrillo landed a suicide dive into both men. Gulak stole the pin on Dorado after Carrillo hit Dorado with the Aztec Press, and Gulak threw Carrillo outside.

WWE United States: AJ Styles def. Cedric Alexander in 5:00

Curious choice for the Kickoff show, given Styles' stardom and Alexander as a hometown favorite. Match was surprisingly brisk, with Alexander nearly winning seconds into it via Michinoku Driver. After mostly an exchange of big moves over the brief duration, Styles won with the Phenomenal Forearm and Styles Clash.

Raw Tag Team: Dolph Ziggler and Bobby Roode def. Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman to win the titles in 9:20

To no one's surprise, the title change was facilitated by a miscommunication on the part of the uneasy-going champs. Rollins took the fall after Strowman accidentally ran into him on a shoulder block, which enabled Roode to pin the Universal champion with the Glorious DDT.

SmackDown Women's: Bayley def. Charlotte Flair in 4:00

Bayley's a sinister heel now, but still has the wacky inflatable tube folk in her entrance. Another hometown native fell in defeat as Charlotte, after working Bayley's knee over for much of the duration, fell victim to an exposed bottom turnbuckle. Bayley quickly pulled Charlotte into it, and pinned her right afterward.

SmackDown Tag Team: The Revival def. The New Day to win the titles in 10:05

Xavier Woods was selling the prior knee injury heavily, and got taken out early in order to make it two-on-one against Big E. Woods managed to work his way to the hot tag, but his injury, combined with Big E being laid out with the Shatter Machine, led to Woods submitting to Scott Dawson's inverted figure-four.

Women's Tag Team: Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross def. Fire and Desire in 8:05

Match essentially turned into a backdrop for the 24/7 title chase, during which Bliss managed to score a two-count on R-Truth, before the horde ran off. Cross prevented Bliss from being pinned, and won the match herself after finishing off Mandy Rose with a neckbreaker.

WWE Intercontinental: Shinsuke Nakamura def. The Miz in 9:30

Sami Zayn tried to do commentary over the PA in order to irk Miz, but got shut down quickly. Submission-based battle saw Nakamura work Miz's arm and Miz go for the leg in kind, getting the Figure Four. Miz landed the Skull Crushing Finale, but Zayn provided a long enough distraction for Nakamura to retain via two Kinshasas.

Raw Women's: Sasha Banks def. Becky Lynch via disqualification in roughly 18 minutes

Lengthy brawl boosted by a spirited sequence of near falls and finisher attempts inside the ring, before degenerating into an Attitude Era-style schmazz. The referee was bumped after Lynch took a chair away from Banks and swung, hitting him by mistake. They battled into the crowd, where Lynch drew a submission via a Dis-Arm-Her on the steps, but the match ended up being a DQ win for Banks. At ringside, Lynch assaulted Banks further with the chair.

WWE World: Kofi Kingston def. Randy Orton in 21:00

Tense matchup void of interference from either man's tag team allies, and was much more decisive than their SummerSlam battle. Lots of near falls down the stretch, including Orton hitting the RKO, but only getting two after Kingston got his foot on the ropes. Orton ultimately missed his punt, and fell victim to Trouble in Paradise for the clean finish.

No DQ match: Erick Rowan def. Roman Reigns in 17:20

Brawl spilled outside quickly, with kendo sticks, ring steps, and tables all finding their way into the fray. Rowan put Reigns through several tables, including one using his Claw Slam. Reigns had Rowan set up for a spear outside, when he was interrupted by a returning Luke Harper. A big boot took Reigns down, and Rowan scored the upset win following another Claw Slam.

WWE Universal: Seth Rollins def. Braun Strowman in 11:00

Lots of big moves compressed into a small amount of time, from spammed superkicks, Strowman's victory lap shoulder blocks, and even Strowman executing a top rope splash, which Rollins kicked out of. In all, it took three Curb Stomps, a Pedigree, and one more Curb Stomp to put Strowman away. After the match, with Rollins on the ramp, he was suddenly attacked by The Fiend, who hit Sister Abigail, and applied the Mandible Claw on the champ.
