Bayley Makes a Run for It
Last night during Clash of Champions, Bayley had an intense challenge ahead of her: a SmackDown Live Women’s Championship Match against The Queen, Charlotte Flair.
And Charlotte Flair, determined to reclaim the title, put up a hell of a fight against Bayley. So much so, in fact, that Bayley quickly realized that the odds of her leaving with her championship were growing smaller by the minute.
But the new Bayley has adopted the great Eddie Guerrero’s motto, “if you’re not cheating, you’re not trying,” and employed that to the fullest to ensure that she remained champion.
Bayley pretended to be injured, and while the referee was busy holding Charlotte back, Bayley was busy untying the turnbuckle pad in front of her.
After making a miraculous recovery, Bayley smashed Charlotte’s face into the exposed metal turnbuckle, pinned the challenger, and literally sprinted to the backstage area before The Queen had a chance to get revenge.
Alexa Bliss Tries to Become Bliss Two Belts
Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross’ scheduled match for Clash of Champions was to defend their Women’s Tag Team Championships against Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose, but midway through the match, R-Truth and the gaggle of 24/7 Championship hopefuls that are never far behind ran into the ring.
And this wasn’t the first time Truth had disrespected the Tag Champ, either, as just before the match, Truth interrupted an interview with Bliss and Cross by putting a boom microphone in Bliss’ face. So to get back at Truth for his constant interferences in her big moments, Bliss took a shot at taking the 24/7 Championship from him – in the middle of another ongoing match.
Though she was unsuccessful, it was a highly entertaining attempt. And if that wasn’t enough fun for one match, we also got Nikki Cross doing Mandy Rose’s signature dance moves to taunt their competition.
The Street Profits Meet King BOOKAH
The Street Profits have been making special appearances on Raw for weeks now, and made another last night at Clash of Champions. To this point, Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford have gotten to do some pretty cool stuff, such as almost drinking milk with Kurt Angle partying with legends at Raw Reunion – or at least Angelo did, he left Montez out that night, which Montez was unsurprisingly disappointed about.
Since the King of the Ring Tournament is wrapping up later tonight on Raw, Montez and Angelo were talking about the final match when they were approached by none other than Booker T, one of the most iconic Kings of the Ring in WWE history, adding another special moment to their growing list.

The Bludgeon Brothers Reunite
The feud between Erick Rowan and Roman Reigns began when Rowan made repeated attempts on Reigns’ life on SmackDown Live. And when Rowan was revealed as the culprit behind these attacks, they became slightly less life-threatening but did not stop, leading to this No Disqualification Match at Clash of Champions.
Rowan held the upper hand throughout much of this match, but toward the end, it appeared as though Roman Reigns might make a comeback. But Reigns didn’t know that Rowan hadn’t come to the Spectrum Center alone.
As Roman made his way back toward the ring to finish the match, he was attacked by a returning Luke Harper, Erick Rowan’s longtime friend a tag team partner.
Now that Luke Harper has finally come back to WWE TV, he and Erick Rowan will no doubt get straight to work making names for themselves by destroying anyone they can get their hands on, just as they’ve always done, and we can’t wait to see it.
The Fiend Makes an Appearance
After Braun Strowman cost he and Seth Rollins the Raw Tag Team Championships earlier in the show (that’s how Rollins saw it, anyway), the dislike the men had for each other seemed to increase tenfold and Strowman was out for blood.
It took four Curb Stomps and a Pedigree, but Seth Rollins eventually brought down The Monster, retaining his Universal Championship. However, the night wasn’t quite over for The Kingslayer.
As he made his way up the ramp in celebration, the lights in the arena were extinguished. And when a spotlight came on, illuminating the spot where Rollins once stood proudly, he was being held by The Fiend, who threw him down in a Sister Abigail before deciding that he needed to hurt more and locked in a Mandible Claw on an already seemingly unconscious champion to end the show.
