The next pay-per-view (PPV) on the WWE schedule is the Clash of Champions show set to take place on Sun., Sept. 27, 2020, at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. The event has been dubbed “Gold Rush,” with the idea being only title matches will be featured on the show and every title must be defended.
Here’s how the card looks just a couple weeks from showtime:
- Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Randy Orton (WWE championship)
Orton won a singles match against Kevin Owens to earn his way into a triple threat match against Seth Rollins and Keith Lee, which he also won, for the right to wrestle McIntyre in a rematch from SummerSlam. They originally played up the possibility this wouldn’t happen due to a McIntyre injury after three Orton punts, but that went away fairly quickly.
- Roman Reigns (c) vs. Jey Uso (Universal championship)
Uso won a Fatal 4-Way match that Reigns got him booked in after Big E was injured. They’ve since played up the fact that they’re family, with Reigns saying he’ll whoop Jey’s ass just like when they were kids and Jey making clear they aren’t kids anymore.
- Bayley (c) vs. Nikki Cross (SmackDown women’s championship)
Cross defeated Tamina Snuka, Lacey Evans, and Alexa Bliss in a Fatal 4-Way to determine who would challenge Bayley for the title.
That’s all that’s official for the card so far.
Elsewhere, Sami Zayn, Jeff Hardy, and AJ Styles are fighting over the Intercontinental championship, and Liv Morgan & Ruby Riott are top contenders to the women’s tag team titles held by Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax. Lucha House Party defeated Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro in a non-title match this past week as well.
