Smackdown Preview 09.18


WWE announced a tag team rematch between Roman Reigns & Jey Uso against Sheamus & King Corbin. Although Reigns and Uso will battle at Clash of Champions for the Universal Championship, they will team up in a Samoan Streetfight. This match favors for Reigns and Uso. However, we are approximately a week away from the PPV event. A Reigns and Uso altercation may stir up the excitement leading to one more segment the following week between them. As for Sheamus and Corbin, they can be the instigators and contribute to a Uso beating.

After she suffered a vicious attack after the tag team championship match two weeks ago, Sasha Banks will respond to Bayley. The WWE Universe has long awaited for the Banks and Bayley rivalry. The Golden Role Models are now the X-Factor of all the gold and the only thing on Banks mind is to get back at Bayley.

Could Banks be evil enough to cost Bayley the title at Clash of Champions and have Nikki Cross as the new Smackdown Champion? That is a question to consider if the WWE moves forward with the feud without the titles.

And for Nikki Cross, she will attend "A Moment of Bliss" segment. Cross feels estranged alongside Bliss ever since The Fiend moment. Bliss's appearance seems darker and darker each week. Can this be a setup for these two superstars to feud in the future? Perhaps a title match should Cross become victorious at Clash of Champions?

Finally, AJ Styles will battle Sami Zayn. Styles believes that he is better than Zayn and Jeff Hardy. On the other side, Zayn claims he is the only true Intercontinental Champion and that Hardy's title is phony. I can see Jeff Hardy as a special commentator in this match and force a triple threat match for Clash of Champions.

Other matches considered:

Lucha House Party vs Tag Team Champions Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura

Heavy Machinery vs The Miz & John Morrison

FireFly Funhouse
