The matches advertised included Seth Rollins versus the Fiend in a Universal Championship match, Braun Strowman versus Gallows & Anderson, and Sasha Banks versus Becky Lynch for the Raw Women’s Championship. Rollins would be winning the Universal Championship match at Clash of Champions if this card turns out to be accurate.
