WWE had a strong show in August's SummerSlam, and on Sunday looks to follow it up with its Clash of Champions pay-per-view. Since WWE has competition in the form of upstart company AEW, every big show counts more than ever. Headlining Clash of Champions is Seth Rollins defending his Universal Championship against Braun Strowman. Complicating things more is Rollins and Strowman currently being the Raw
Team Champions: They'll defend the tag titles early in the show before facing each other in the main event.
Pro wrestling, am I right?
It could be a night where the women steal the show, though, as both Raw and SmackDown Women's Championships are being defended in intriguing matches. Becky Lynch defends her Raw title against a returning Sasha Banks, while Charlotte Flair looks to become a 10-time champ by defeating Bayley for the SmackDown strap. Elsewhere, Kofi Kingston defends his WWE Championship against Randy Orton in a SummerSlam rematch. A potential highlight is AJ Styles vs. Cedric Alexander for the US Championship. AJ Styles is among the company's best performers, right there with Seth Rollins, and Cedric Alexander is fantastic as well. AJ is coming off a disappointing string of matches with Ricochet though, so we'll have to see if this can live up to its tremendous potential.
Clash of Champions 2019 takes place in Charlotte, North Carolina on Sunday, Sept. 15. The main card starts at 4 p.m. PT/7 p.m. ET.
