I don’t know about you, but I celebrated my Labor Day weekend with a ton of delicious food while surrounded by family out in the sun. Of course, what better way to cap off this three day holiday weekend than with Monday Night Raw! During last night’s show, Championship matches were announced for Raw’s upcoming pay-per-view Clash of Champions. These come as no surprise (to me, anyway) and are as follows:
Kevin Owens (c) vs Seth Rollins for the WWE Universal Championship
During Kevin Owen’s celebration for becoming our new Universal Champion, Seth Rollins interrupted and fired off his frustrations of Triple H’s interference with the match, costing Seth Rollins the title. Shortly after, Stephanie McMahon indefinitely suspended Rollins which Foley quickly countered. He reminded Stephanie not only to not allow her personal feelings get in the way of business but that she hired him to create the matches. Foley feels Rollins is entitled to a rematch and scheduled that to take place at Clash of Champions. At the end of Monday Night Raw, Roman Reigns came out also wanting his opportunity at a rematch so Foley declared if he can defeat Kevin Owens next week on Raw, that Championship match becomes a Triple Threat Match. This is getting goooood!
The New Day’s Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston, and Big E (c) vs Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson for the WWE Tag Team Championship
Gallows and Anderson continue to mock our beloved two time Tag Team Champions by calling them Old Farts. They even had an elderly version of The New Day – rocking the t-shirt, unicorn headband and silver hair – come out (incredibly slow may I add) to the ring. The New Day put an end to this charade by attacking Gallows and Anderson along with the elderly versions of themselves! Once their title match at Clash of Champions comes around, I hope that puts an end to this feud as well. I personally do not find it to be entertaining in the least.
Charlotte (c) vs Sasha Banks for the WWE Women’s Championship
Sasha Banks announced on her official Twitter page prior to Raw that she would be on the show tonight with some bad news. Upon making her appearance, she spoke highly of the evolution of women’s wrestling and what she had to do to get to this point in her career. Sasha was very emotional which continued to progress as she was about to release her bad news….which was put on hold due to interruption of Charlotte’s protégé, Dana Brooke. Dana came out to finish what Charlotte started but received a Bank Statement to her surprise! The bad news wasn’t about her injury she sustained at SummerSlam, it was bad news for Charlotte as she’s cleared and coming back for her Women’s Championship! Poor Dana, that girl was getting beat up left and right last night. She deserves a much needed night off HAHA.
More matches for the upcoming Clash of Champions pay-per-view will be updated here once they are announced to the WWE Universe. Stay tuned!
