SmackDown Live presents WWE Clash of Champions 2017 Spoilers

WWE Championship Match: AJ Styles (c) vs. Jinder Mahal

Very glad that this match is still happening even with the title change, as it just made sense. I'm also even happier that it doesn't look like Mahal has much of a chance, if any, to win the belt back, as I didn't like him as champion whatsoever and I don't want him holding the title again. This should be a standard affair with Styles coming out on top and Mahal leaving the main event scene and going back to midcard or upper-midcard status.

PREDICTIONS: AJ Styles retains the championship.

SmackDown Women's Championship Lumberjack Match: Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Natalya

Even though I have no real interest in seeing this match, it would be so stupid if WWE didn't have all the titles on the line at Clash of Champions, so good on them for sticking to that. Charlotte will retain here and then, we can move on to something else.

The Lumberjack Match stipulation is a cop out with The Riott Squad, which makes me feel like they didn't think this thing out when they brought them up to the main roster (also exemplary of that is how they're damn near the same as Absolution and there's no reason for them to have turned heel) but at least it's a better way of getting them on the card than to just have abandoned this title match or had a six-woman tag team match.

PREDICTIONS: Charlotte retains amidst the chaos of the lumberjills fighting each other.

SmackDown Tag Team Championship Fatal 4-Way Match: The Usos (c) vs. The New Day vs. Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin vs. Aiden English and Rusev

With the Fatal 4-Way being the case, I'm a little suspicious that The New Day might win the titles by pinning Gable and Benjamin or English and Rusev, as I can see them coming into WrestleMania season with the titles much more than The Usos—but, of course, The Usos do have a chance to retain, and it really just becomes a situation where I doubt the other two teams are winning the belts.

PREDICTIONS: 50/50 between The Usos and The New Day right now...

United States Championship Triple Threat Match: Baron Corbin (c) vs. Bobby Roode vs. Dolph Ziggler

Well, this is a surprise. I figured the story between Roode and Ziggler was over and done with. Neat. I'm a fan of Ziggler, as you should all know by now, so his addition to this match only spices it up in my mind, even though I have to assume he's taking the fall here so Corbin can retain without Roode looking bad or having to do some kind of disqualification or count out situation.

PREDICTIONS: Corbin retains.

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn vs. Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura (with Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan as special guest referees)

Saw this one coming a mile away long before it was announced because, given the circumstances, it's the best thing they can do with what little time and flexibility they have. I still have a bit of a hunch that Orton is turning heel against Nakamura soon, which might be a factor here, especially as there's a stipulation with Owens and Zayn being fired from WWE if they lose, and Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan as the special guest referee, so the odds are stacked against them. It would make sense for an Orton heel turn to be one of the only things that can give KO and Zayn the win, but there also needs to be conflict with Bryan and McMahon, so possibly Bryan's the one who turns. In any fashion, Owens and Zayn shouldn't be losing.

PREDICTIONS: Owens and Zayn win.

The Bludgeon Brothers vs. Breezango

I was kind of hoping this would be The Ascension instead so we could build up to The Fashion Police a little further down the line, but whatever. I like Fandango and Tyler Breeze a ton, but they stand no chance at all. I'm glad this is on the card, regardless.

PREDICTIONS: Rowan and Harper win.

Mojo Rawley vs. Zack Ryder

This absolutely needed to be a pre-show match or on the card itself, and I'm glad WWE didn't ignore it and go with some random Sin Cara vs. Mike Kanellis affair or whatever. Speaking of things needed, Mojo Rawley absolutely has to win this match to give himself a boost of momentum.

PREDICTIONS: Mojo Rawley wins.
