It’s the one show of the year where ALL the titles on RAW, SmackDown, and 205 are guaranteed to be on the line and with the Women’s Division having all their cards on the table, how will Clash of Champions hold up?
I really love Boss-Hug as heels. I also like that they don’t see themselves as heels. I’m also glad Sasha took that time off because she’s back to being the Boss and her happiness is great to see on camera.
I have mixed feelings about WWE continuing to use Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins’ relationship, even though they’re engaged. However, I loved her clapping back at Sasha’s promos. It’s wondering to see two mic masters going at it, even though they aren’t face to face.
I loved seeing the Banks/Lynch brawl continuing backstage! They can’t let this feud end with the draft. Keep this going!
Women’s Tag Team Championship – Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross vs Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville
Well, I’ve been surprised twice tonight. I thought WWE was going to go with Rose and Deville as Women’s Tag Champions and start a Cross/Bliss feud, but they didn’t. That was a really great match, all things considered. I’m not sure what was up with the lights though, that was giving me a headache. However, I wonder what the end game for Bliss and Cross is going to be. I’m guessing it’ll be either Boss-Hug or Team Generation Tea will reunite.
SmackDown Women’s Championship – Bayley vs Charlotte Flair
Uh, holy shit! There’s an old truism that WWE loves to have babyfaces lose in their hometowns and that bug bit Charlotte HARD. Wow. I will say that it was a really good match, if a little too short for my liking. However, I LOVED Bayley’s sneaky heelness. It was actually kind of fun to see Charlotte having to punch up and still come up short in the same town her dad’s dirty tricks made him a legend. That was fun. I also loved Cross mocking Rose’s hip swivel and Rose’s comments on Tuesday. You go, Nikki!
RAW Women’s Championship – Becky Lynch vs Sasha Banks
Why wasn’t this the main event? Seriously, that match was amazing! I’m not really surprised that the match ended in a DQ. It would’ve been WAY too easy for Sasha to take the belt off Becky and that would’ve been a waste of Becky’s run. The all out brawl that resulted in the DQ was excellent! This needs to be THE match for the RAW Women’s Division going forward. Or have the Four Horsewomen on one show so the women’s division on the other show can develop without them.
I was also surprised that there was no shenanigans, which would’ve been an easy story to tell given how the Bayley/Charlotte match ended.
Roman Reigns vs Erick Rowan
Okay. That happened. Okay, maybe that’s not fair. Roman Reigns and Erick Rowan had a really great match, but I’m a little puzzled as to what Luke Harper has to do with this. Rowan and Harper have both been professional lackeys their entire careers, so the idea of them coming up with this plan to take Reigns out makes little sense to me. I’m guessing that this will go to HIAC, but I’m disappointed that it feels like the Roman Reigns Mystery is going out with a whimper, not a bang.
That’s it for Tiffany’s Clash of Champions Takes! Tune in tomorrow for RAW Takes.
