Planning in advance. It’s never too early to start planning for things down the road. I know some shows are built up over the course of a week but there are times when WWE sets things up months in advance. That doesn’t mean that the matches are going to be known for sure, but the early plans can give you an idea of what you’re going to be seeing as you go forward.
The official website of the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina is advertising two matches for the September 15 Clash of Champions event. The matches currently announced for the card are Kofi Kingston defending the WWE Title against Dolph Ziggler and Becky Lynch defending the Raw Women’s Title against Lacey Evans. Both of these matches are currently scheduled for this Sunday’s Stomping Grounds event, meaning there is a strong chance that they will be changed before September.
It started last month. Check out Ziggler attacking Kingston:
And this one was even earlier. Check out one from a few months ago:
Opinion: There isn’t much to say about something like this because these matches are highly unlikely to actually take place. These are more or less placeholder matches before we get to September and there is a good chance that at least one of the champions will have lost their titles before then. That being said, I would rather have matches that aren’t going to happen than spoilers, so at least they’re thinking ahead for a bit.
What do you expect for the card? Which of the two champions loses their title first? Let us know in the comments below.
