The calendar needs a switch. We are in a weird period for the WWE and that is the kind of thing that couldn’t be predicted. The Coronavirus has changed almost everything about the wrestling world and that is going to be the case for the time being. This includes some changes to the WWE’s schedule and we will be seeing another change to it as we move into the fall.
Titles are probably the easiest storytelling device in all of wrestling. You have a title that says you’re the best and someone else wants it. How much more basic of a story can you tell than that? It should make for an easy match and WWE is smart enough to realize that. It is why there is a pay per view dedicated entirely titles but we are going to have to wait on it a little bit longer.
According to PWInsider.com, WWE has moved Clash of Champions back from September 20 to September 27. There is no word on why WWE made such a change. This lines up with the lease agreement that WWE has with the Amway Center, which included mention of a pay per view on September 27. WWE has yet to announce the show or any matches taking place on the card.
The Clash of Champions has a history. Check out some of its highlights:
Opinion: The first thing that I think of here is how much longer there is between shows. The idea of having just a week between pay per views is a little too much to take so it is nice to have more of a breather in there instead. Hopefully WWE gives us some more time between Clash of Champions and whatever else we have coming up next as that short time makes the build pretty difficult to pull off.
