The card is growing. With less than three weeks to go before Clash of Champions, there isn’t much on the card so far. The show needs some matches added as there are a lot of titles that need to be defended. Thankfully it seems that WWE knows that for a change and started beefing up the card this week, starting with the Universal Title match being added and then setting up a second title match.
We have new #1 contenders to the Raw Tag Team Titles as Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler earned the Clash of Champions title shot. Ziggler and Roode won an eight team Tag Team Turmoil match to earn the shot, last eliminating Heavy Machinery. This was the first time Roode and Ziggler had teamed together and they will face Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman, who are facing off for the Universal Title at Clash of Champions.
There isn’t much footage of them teaming together so we’ll try this instead. Check out Roode vs. Ziggler in a 2/3 falls match:
Opinion: I guess that’s as good as they could get as the Raw tag division isn’t exactly in great shape. That being said, they couldn’t put the OC in there or something instead? They just lost the Tag Team Titles and would seem to be a bit more interesting than Roode and Ziggler. I don’t think I ever need to see Rollins vs. Ziggler again but that is just how things go in WWE.
Who leaves Clash of Champions with the titles? Who would be the most interesting challengers? Let us know in the comments below.
