WWE Clash of Champions 2019 Card: Every Announced Match for Sunday

Clash of Champions is the next WWE pay-per-view and will have every championship defended on Sunday.

There are 11 current matches on the card, with all but one having championship implications. Some of the running stories heading into Clash of Champions include all of the Four Horsewomen in championship matches, as well as Braun Strowman and Seth Rollins pulling double duty for the RAW Tag Team and Universal Championships.

A lot is expected to go down on Sunday, but here's every scheduled match at Clash of Champions with some additional background on each one.

seth rollins braun strowman clash of champions

Seth Rollins (c) vs Braun Strowman - Universal Championship Match

The current RAW tag team champions are pulling double duty this Sunday, as Strowman hopes to take Seth's title.

Rollins prides himself on being a fighting champion, so he accepted his partner's challenge. Will either man be able to win the match after already having one title bout earlier in the night? Not to mention The Fiend is also waiting for the winner at Hell in a Cell later this month.

cruiserweight triple threat clash of champions

Drew Gulak (c) vs Lince Dorado vs Humberto Carillo - Cruiserweight Championship Match

The Cruiserweight division is being held to a higher standard thanks to Gulak, but there is no shortage of challengers.

After winning a number-one contenders match, Carillo earned a title shot. However, Tony Nese has realigned with Gulak and that cost Dorado the victory. Dorado would pin Carillo to make the title match a triple threat. Who will capture the title and lead the division after Sunday?

roman reigns erick rowan clash of champions

Roman Reigns vs Erick Rowan - No Disqualification Match

The long, drawn-out mystery of who attacked Roman Reigns was seemingly solved last week when Erick Rowan admitted to planning the attack on "The Big Dog," even going as far as to attack his former tag team partner, Daniel Bryan.

Both men will come to blows on Sunday with an added No Disqualification stipulation to give this match some extra brutality.

nakamura shinsuke miz clash of champions

Shinsuke Nakamura (c) vs The Miz - Intercontinental Championship Match

The IC title has fallen on hard times as of late, but The Miz looks to change that by winning his record-tying 10th championship.

Shinsuke has largely been off television since he took the title from Finn Balor, but a meaner attitude and the employ of Sami Zayn as his hype man puts Nakamura on a trajectory to retain.

aj styles cedric alexander clash of champions

AJ Styles (c) Cedric Alexander - US Championship Match

Styles realigned with Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson to form The OC, and it led to "The Phenomenal One" capturing the US title. Unfortunately for the rest of the WWE, The OC have not been happy since they lost the RAW Tag Team Championships, and they took it out on Cedric Alexander before his King of the Ring match against Baron Corbin.

With his chance at the crown gone thanks to The OC, Alexander looks to make The OC title-less at Clash of Champions.

bliss cross fire and desire clash champions

Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross (c) vs Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville - Women's Tag Team Championship Match

Bliss and Cross won and have successfully retained their titles over the past two months, but they face brand new challengers in Rose and Deville.

The team known as "Fire and Desire" won a match against Bliss and Cross on SmackDown Live recently, making them the next challengers for the Women's Tag Team Championships. Can Bliss and Cross stave off this new challenge or will Mandy and Sonya become just the fourth tag team to win the titles?

new day revival clash of champions

The New Day (c) vs The Revival - SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match

The Revival has aligned itself with Randy Orton, and it has put The New Day in their crosshairs. The Top Guys want to bring prestige back to the SmackDown Tag division, and they can do so by winning them this Sunday.

Xavier Woods and Big E have fallen to the trio, both suffering injuries in the lead up to the pay per view, so they will likely not be at 100 percent for the match.

braun seth ziggler roode clash of champions

Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman (c) vs Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode - RAW Tag Team Championship Match

Rollins and Strowman teamed up to take down The OC, who were wreaking havoc on Monday night raw. The put-together duo then defeated Gallows and Anderson to become Raw tag team champions.

Roode and Ziggler formed their own team out of the blue and won the Tag Team Turmoil to become number-one contenders.

While it may seem like a one-sided bout, Strowman has his eyes set on Rollins Universal Championship, which has sowed the seeds of distrust between the pair.

becky lynch sasha banks clash of champions

Becky Lynch (c) vs Sasha Banks - RAW Women's Championship Match

Sasha Banks made her first appearance on WWE television since Wrestlemania and promptly turned heel on Natalya. Becky Lynch came out for the save and was taken out by stiff chair shots.

Lynch accepted Banks challenge for the title, but it may not be a simple one-on-one match. Bayley recently turned heel, aligning with her best friend Sasha Banks, so the former women's tag Champs have each other's backs.

Can "The Man" overcome this new challenger or will "The Boss" take over Raw?

bayley charlotte flair clash of champions

Bayley (c) vs Charlotte Flair - SmackDown Women's Championship Match

Bayley has been trying to elevate the smackdown women's division and Charlotte claims she can't.

Bayley then turned heel and aligned herself with Sasha to not just back up her friend but also to bring more eyes to the division. While many in the locker room don't agree with Bayleys methods, Charlotte looks to prove she is superior and the only one who can achieve what Bayley can't.

kofi kingston randy orton clash of champions

Kofi Kingston (c) vs Randy Orton - WWE Championship Match

A feud 10 years in the making, Orton admitted to keeping Kofi down in the past because he felt he wasn't ready and still isn't. Kofi looks to prove Orton wrong by defeating him clean on Sunday. But Orton has taken out the New Day and forced a double-count out at SummerSlam when he taunted Kofi's family ringside, so the mental edge is likely on the Viper's side.
