A Shameful Clash of Champions Preview

As Wrestling Shame's Assistant Professor of WCW and ECW Studies, I'd like to remind everyone that Clash of the Champions was an important WCW event. Frankly between this and doing a fucking house-show of Starrcade and then doing a lame-version of War Games on NXT,  I'm tired of the WWE co-opting another WCW event.

And do you know why they are co-opting another WCW event? Because they can't do anything original or cool on their own. The last cool wrestler they had in their company quit the WWE in 2014. All the other cool wrestlers are in NJPW. And this company thought GREAT BALLS OF FIRE was a good name for PPV event.

It's time we as Wrestling Shame fans took a stand. LEAVE WCW ALONE. Go to your windows. Take to the streets. Chant with me. LEAVE WCW ALONE. LEAVE WCW ALONE. LEAVE WCW ALONE.

*HHH comes up to me from behind*


HHH: Hi everyone -- we are going to have Jay write the Clash of Champions review here.

Jay: I'm "two sweet"-ing Triple H as I type while John has been given a cease and desist. On to the next pay per view!

"The only time Raw and Smackdown Live go head-" Oh I'm sorry are we not doing that anymore?

There's a pretty big event this Sunday, and you're more than likely watching that rather than Clash of Champions. I'm talking about the Steelers vs the Patriots. But if you decide to watch WWE instead, here's what's coming up Sunday. Rick is probably glad this is a Smackdown event so I don't have to somehow talk about Roman Reigns. Oops. Too late.

Rick_City: Boooooooooooo. Okay, to be fair, I forgot this PPV existed until you reminded me like three days ago. Onto the preview!

WWE Champion AJ Styles vs. Jinder Mahal

Jay: Jinder don't want none.

Rick_City: AJ wins and, if there is a God, they somehow set up Nakamura versus Styles for WrestleMania.

United States Champion Baron Corbin vs. Bobby Roode vs. Dolph Ziggler (Triple Threat Match)

Jay: I'm just here to sing along to Bobby Roode's music, and you are too. Don't deny it.

Rick_City: Can we somehow get Baron Corbin out of this match? Can Rikishi hit him with a car or something? Bobby Roode had better win. Either way, it should be a good match because Roode is very good and Ziggler (despite overselling, acting just like a knockoff Shawn Michaels, and having one of the worst ring names in WWE) is entertaining as well. But, yeah, Rikishi should hit Corbin with a car.

SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair vs. Natalya (Lumberjack Match)

Jay: I LOVE Lumberjack Matches. There's always favoritism and some chaos, probably from the Riott Squad this time. Why is she Ruby Riott now anyway?? Side note: Women's wrestling is continuing to grow and become amazing. When will we get the women's tag team division we deserve?

Rick_City: This will be a good match because, let's call it as it is, the women's division is the best part of WWE. Charlotte wins because she's Charlotte. We've sure come a long way from Natalya farting, haven't we?

Randy Orton & Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn (Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan as special guest referees - if Owens and Zayn lose, they will be fired))

Jay: Kevin Owens says, "Shane McMahon is the worst McMahon." I beg to differ. But I think this will be a really fun match to watch and things will probably get a little wild. Daniel Bryan is going to fight Shane McMahon over their children.

Rick_City: Why does this match have two referees? How is that even going to work? Unless Shinsuke Nakamura turns on Randy Orton and joins Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn, this is a waste of  three very talented competitors. Orton is incredibly stale and boring. Nakamura, Zayn, and Owens are not. It's unfair that they have to share the ring with him.

Anyway, I predict a Russo level SWERVE where Daniel Bryan turns heel or something, but I wish it was Shinsuke turning. Either way, Owens and Zayn win via ~~SWERVE~~~

SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos vs. The New Day vs. Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable vs. Rusev & Aiden English (Fatal 4-Way Match)

Jay: I want War Games. This is ridiculous. Why isn't this match War Games? I guess these guys don't hate each other's guts enough to kill each other. Happy Rusev Day indeed.

Rick_City: New Day and the Usos have been putting on great matches against one another forever, so this should be a good one. I'll say Rusev and English win because WWE loves wacky tag teams holding gold.

Breezango vs. The Bludgeon Brothers

Jay: Tickets better be flying and arrests need to be made, because as metal as their entrance is, those trailer trash boys have it coming for that look. I'm really just hoping this isn't a squash match like they've been rolling through lately, the Ascension will be cheering on Tyler and Fandango. Annoyingly, but full of genuine love for their best friends.

Rick_City: Wait, this is an actual match? And apparently Zack Ryder is facing Mojo Rawley too? I refuse to comment on these. I'm done.
