The following matches are advertised for the WWE Clash of Champions pay-per-view, which will be held on December 17 in Boston, Massachusetts at TD Garden.
WWE Champion AJ Styles and his opponent Jinder Mahal were noticeably absent from this week's episode and a video package detailing their feud thus was released instead of an onscreen confrontation.
Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn and Randy Orton have all been booked for the show by WWE Smackdown Commissioner Shane McMahon. Shane McMahon denied having a personal agenda against Zayn and Owens, and put them in a tag team match at Clash of Champions against Orton and a partner of his choosing, and put Zayn in a match against Orton in the main event, with Owens handcuffed to the ring ropes.
-The Usos vs. New Day vs. Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin vs. Rusev and Aiden English in a four-way for the Smackdown Tag Titles. Couple that to the fact that we just saw Orton defeat Zayn when Owens was interfering and now we're supposed to be interested in seeing Orton and Nakamura vs. the two of them and this isn't the best story in the world.
