This Sunday is WWE’s Clash of Champions, a night when every title is on the line. Each of the nine matches currently confirmed for the show are for championship gold, with the headlining contest being Drew McIntyre versus Randy Orton for the former’s WWE Championship. After the duo’s excellent SummerSlam bout, McIntyre and Orton will battle each other on Sunday in an Ambulance match.
But perhaps SmackDown’s world title bout is more interesting. A newly villainous Roman Reigns will defend his Universal Championship against his cousin (both in real life and on screen) Jey Uso. Uso, with his brother Jimmy, is known for being one half of the awesome Usos tag team. It’ll be fun to see how he does as a singles wrestler.
Unlike every PPV between March and August, Clash of Champions won’t take place in WWE’s Performance Center. As with Raw and SmackDown, it’ll air from Orlando’s Amway Center, known as WWE’s “ThunderDome.” The main card starts both days at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. If you’re a paid WWE Network subscriber — at $9.99 a month — you can watch Clash of Champions live for no extra cost. Otherwise, you’ll need to contact your local cable provider.
Viewers in the UK will have to stay up late to watch Clash of Champions, as the show starts midnight Sunday UK time. Clash of Champions starts for Australians at 9 a.m. AEST on Monday.
