Clash of Champions 2019: 5 questions from this year’s pay-per-view
- Clash of Champions left the fans asking a number of questions. #WWEClash #ClashofChampions #WWE
Juggling through four or five championship matches can prove to be a lot of work for creative, but once Clash of Champions arrives, they need to focus on many more. This year, the event was bigger than ever before and saw ten top WWE championships defended during a long night.
In an event filled with mixed bookings, some high spots, and some surprises, there were a few major questions which were raised by fans at the end of the night.
While it’s always good to keep the fans guessing on what’s going to come next, there were some spots which raised many worrying questions for the WWE Superstars involved.
In this article, we will look at 5 of the biggest questions fans have from the company and what they could mean for the Superstars and the storylines going forward.
#1 Will Cedric’s loss kill his momentum?
During the Clash of Champions Kickoff Show, Cedric Alexander faced AJ Styles for the United States Championship in what was arguably the biggest match of his career. Just six days after pinning The Phenomenal One in a tag team match, Alexander earned his big opportunity.
While fans were expecting a good long match between the two talented and athletic men, they were treated to the second shortest match on the card which lasted less than five minutes.
Styles cut off all the offense Alexander could offer and delivered the Phenomenal Forearm. The United States Champion put Alexander away with a Styles Clash in a one-sided championship victory.
After the match, The O.C. joined their leader for a three-on-one attack against Alexander. With this, we may have seen the end of Alexander’s quest to win the United States Championship.
What once seemed like a big match which could result in a huge title change now feels like an afterthought where Alexander was simply a filler to ensure that the US Championship remained on the card.
Is this the end of the road for Alexander's short push and will he return to the lower card in the coming weeks? Maybe the beat down will allow him to come back stronger and possibly align himself with two more men to take on The O.C.?
