All belts will be defended at Clash of Champions in Charlotte, North Carolina on September 15. As the event gets closer and closer, it starts to become more obvious what matches will be on the card. These are the predictions for what matches we believe will take place at Clash Of Champions.
Universal Championship Match: Seth Rollins(C) vs Braun Strowman
This one is a very bold prediction. It is believed that this match will occur while the two are still the Raw Tag Champions. There is a good chance that this is completely wrong and they may not even have the titles going into Clash of Champions. That is why this prediction is very bold and would be a very Paul Heyman thing to do. This is something we have never seen. WWE always does the breakup of tag teams at least a week in advance to lead into a match. However, if they did the match this way it would feel refreshing as there would be a different type of setup. I see this match being the first of two matches, with an actual rivalry built match being inside Hell in a Cell. For that reason, expect Rollins to retain the Universal Championship.
Result: Seth Rollins retains.
WWE Championship Match: Kofi Kingston(C) vs Randy Orton
Randy Orton will be getting his second chance to win the belt at Clash of Champions after losing via double count-out to Kofi Kingston at Summerslam. Hopefully this time they deliver a better match than at Summerslam. Orton could win the belt at Clash of Champions, which would cause a Hell in a Cell rematch. This match has the potential to be really good. However, it seems like WWE is copying their feud between Samoa Joe and AJ Styles from last year. With SmackDown going to Fox, it seems like a good idea to have a face as champion. That is why Kofi will retain his title at Clash of Champions.
Result: Kofi Kingston retains his title, but a third match will take place at Hell in a Cell.

WWE Raw Women’s Championship Match: Becky Lynch(C) vs Sasha Banks
The first of the women’s matches for Clash of Champions is for the Raw Women’s Title. After being absent since after Wrestlemania, Sasha Banks made her long awaited return on the Raw after Summerslam. During her return, Banks beat up both Natalya and Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, returning to heel form. On the latest episode of Raw, she continued to destroy Natalya backstage, cementing her new heel persona. This is a horsewomen vs horsewomen match, which seems to be a common theme, for the title. With WWE 2k20 coming out a month after this PPV do not expect Sasha Banks to win her first match for the title.
Result: Becky Lynch retains
WWE SmackDown Live Women’s Championship Match: Bayley(C) vs Charlotte Flair
This is a sort-of rematch from Money in the Bank earlier this year. Back in June, Bayley cashed in the Money in the Bank contract and pinned Flair to win the SmackDown Women’s title. Flair will look to become a 10-time champion by defeating Bayley in her hometown of Charlotte, N.C. This match will be the second horsewomen vs horsewomen match of this PPV. Of course, not both babyfaces of the horsewomen can retain. With SmackDown going to Fox, a womens champion like Charlotte Flair who has that name recognition would be a major ratings pull. Expect Flair to win her match against Bayley at Clash of Champions.
Result: Charlotte Flair becomes the new SmackDown Live Women’s Champion
SmackDown Live Tag Team Championship Match: New Day(C) vs The Revival
This match is all but confirmed. They have been feuding over the last few weeks and it looks like the match will take place at Clash of Champions. With the Revival currently letting their contract run out, it does not look like they will win the match and become the new champs.
Result: New Day retains
King of the Ring Finals: Cedric Alexander vs Andrade
There are so many things WWE could do with the King of the Ring tournament. Earlier this week I would have told you how it was going to be Kevin Owens vs either Baron Corbin or Drew McIntyre in the final. After Owens lost to Elias on Tuesday, the only logical person to go to the finals from SmackDown is Andrade. There is the possibility of it being Ali vs Baron Corbin or Drew McIntyre, but it makes more sense to save Ali for a match with Shinsuke Nakamura for the IC title. This match has the potential to steal the show at Clash of Champions. Both Alexander and Andrade are fantastic wrestlers who could benefit from this platform. However, it makes more sense for Andrade to win and become El Rey.
Result: Andrade wins the King of the Ring tournament
WWE Intercontinental Championship Match: Shinsuke Nakamura(C) w/ Sami Zayn vs Ali
This match was originally expected to take place at Summerslam. However, it seems like they will finally have the match at Clash of Champions. After pairing Nakamura with Sami Zayn on SmackDown this last Tuesday, there is no way that he loses this match. Although deserving of a title, it does not seem likely that Ali will win his first WWE championship.
Result: Nakamura retains
Roman Reigns vs Daniel Bryan
Although it does not seem like the quest to find Roman’s attacker will end at Clash of Champions, we will certainly be getting a match out of it. The originally planned match for Reigns to face Bryan at Summerslam has ended up on the Clash of Champions card. With Reigns needing the win to continue the story line, expect Bryan to put him over like he did Buddy Murphy.
Result: Roman Reigns wins
As with all WWE PPV’s, none of these matches could happen. Vince constantly changes his mind. The one thing known for certain is that with Clash of Champions following AEW’s All Out, they will have to put on one heck of a show.
