The WWE Clash of Champions pay-per-view on Sunday will have 11 matches and we also found out during Smackdown that the King of the Ring finals will take place on Raw next week. For the past four weeks, the belief was that Clash of Champions would not only have every WWE championship on the line, but it would also have the King of the Ring finals. Nope. That’s not the way it is happening now.
When Chad Gable beat Shane McMahon in the semifinals during Smackdown tonight, a graphic was shown that let us know the Corbin vs. Gable match in the King of the Ring Finals will take place on Raw. The announcers also said it.

TJR Thoughts: I don’t like the change. I think doing the finals at Clash of Champions would be better than doing them on Raw.
The only change to the Clash of Champions lineup in terms of matches is that Roman Reigns vs. Erick Rowan is now a No Disqualification Match.
That means the Clash of Champions lineup will have 11 matches that are currently advertised. The lineup looks like this.
WWE Universal Championship: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Braun Strowman
WWE Championship: Kofi Kingston (c) vs. Randy Orton
Raw Women’s Championship: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Sasha Banks
No Disqualification Match: Roman Reigns vs. Erick Rowan
Smackdown Women’s Championship: Bayley (c) vs. Charlotte Flair
Raw Tag Team Championships: Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode
Smackdown Tag Team Championships: The New Day’s Big E and Xavier Woods (c) vs. The Revival (Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder)
Intercontinental Championship: Shinsuke Nakamura (c) (w/Sami Zayn) vs. The Miz
United States Championship: AJ Styles (c) vs. Cedric Alexander
Women’s Tag Team Championships: Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross (c) vs. Fire & Desire (Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville)
Cruiserweight Championship: Drew Gulak (c) vs. Humberto Carrillo vs. Lince Dorado
There will likely be some sort of 24/7 Title defense as well, but nothing has been advertised going into the show.
We will have a Clash of Champions preview on Friday.
