Here are my predictions for the 2016 WWE Clash of Champions PPV. Check back for Clash of Champions 2016 results and review coverage here.
|WWE Clash of Champions 2016 Spoilers|
WWE Universal Championship Match: Kevin Owens (c) vs. Seth Rollins
Triple H turned on Seth Rollins to influence the match and give the title to Kevin Owens, so I fully expect repercussions and ramifications. However, Rollins isn't going to win the title here. It might even be due to interference from Triple H again. Maybe it's just from Owens figuring out a way to come out on top on his own. In whatever scenario, Owens needs to hold this title for a lot longer than a few weeks in order to compensate for Finn Balor's injury tarnishing the belt's image.
PREDICTION: Kevin Owens retains.
WWE Tag Team Championship Match: The New Day (c) vs. The Club
Since WWE copped out and had a disqualification ending to their match at SummerSlam, this is basically going to be the match we should have had there. I still expect Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows to win the belts, and I think they wanted to hold off on this until Clash of Champions to make the event seem more grandiose than it is, as a title change helps that. Holy shit this feud has sucked, though, with The Old Day being the worst of it all. If that's what we have to look forward to, The New Day better retain.
PREDICTION: The Club wins.
WWE Women's Championship Match: Charlotte (c) vs. Sasha Banks vs. Bayley
Why the hell have they changed this match so many times? By now, I'm just annoyed and no longer care. I'm okay with Charlotte dropping the belt to either Sasha or Bayley, as I like them both much more than Charlotte. The match could be good, but they'll probably screw it up by having Sasha and Bayley get in each other's way and Charlotte will retain.
PREDICTION: I could totally see Charlotte winning just because that option sucks.
Sami Zayn vs. Chris Jericho
The battle of former friend versus current bff is on! This should be a good, solid match and I'm looking forward to it.
PREDICTION: Sami Zayn wins.
WWE United States Championship Match: Rusev (c) vs. Roman Reigns
It was only a matter of time before this was announced, and I was curious as to whether or not they would add a gimmick to it such as a Last Man Standing stipulation or general No Disqualification rules or maybe even a steel cage. It doesn't appear that's how they're going. This is just going to be the match that should have happened last time.
PREDICTION: Rusev wins through some sort of bullshittery.
WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match: T.J. Perkins (c) vs. Brian Kendrick
This is a good feud to start T.J. Perkins off with. Kendrick is the one superstar in the division that the main WWE audience should be aware of the most and he's a heel, so that will help boost Perkins as a babyface.
PREDICTION: T.J. Perkins retains.
Pre-Show Kickoff Match: Nia Jax vs. Alicia Fox
Yeah. We all know what's happening here. Clearly Alicia Fox wins......yeah, I'm joking.
PREDICTION: Nia Jax wins.
Best of Seven Series: Cesaro vs. Sheamus
This was a guarantee as soon as Sheamus reached 3-0. Now that everything is tied up at 3-3, the decision-making match will take place here, as it should be. I'm going back and forth between who I would want to see be victorious, as even though I like Cesaro much more, part of me kind of wants to be surprised, but everything points more in his direction anyway.
PREDICTION: Cesaro wins.
Enzo Amore & Big Cass vs. The Shining Stars
For some reason, these two teams are feuding. It would be weird not to see Enzo and Cass on the card.
PREDICTION: Enzo and Cass win.
Still not included on this list, but people I expect to participate in some fashion = Darren Young, Titus O'Neil, Jinder Mahal, Neville, Braun Strowman...
