Bobby Lashley will defend the US Title at WWE Clash Of Champions
WWE has announced another match for its upcoming PPV, Clash Of Champions. At the PPV, its weekend, Bobby Lashley will defend the United States Championship against Apollo Crews. At WWE Payback, Bobby Lashley defeated Apollo Crews to win the United States Championship for the second time in his career in WWE.
Apollo Crews has been battling the Hurt Business for weeks now. It all began when he rejected MVP's offer to join them. Crews had teamed up with Ricochet and Cedric Alexander to fight the Hurt Business before Alexander betrayed them and joined MVP, Lashley and Benjamin.

At the PPV, the Intercontinental Championship will be decided in a Triple Threat Ladder Match among Sami Zayn, Jeff Hardy and AJ Styles. As for the Tag Team Title, the Champions of the RAW brand, The Street Profits will defend against Andrade and Garza while Cesar and Nakamura will defend the SmackDown Tag Team Titles against Luch House Party. The Women's Tag Team Titles will also be decided at Clash Of Champions when Jax and Baszler defend the Titles against the Riott Squad.
