What's the story?

Clash of Champions was a solid pay-per-view for WWE's SmackDown LIVE brand, there weren't really any major surprises or upsets, but there was solid storytelling, great in-ring action and a decent crowd. However, has reported on what happened after the Pay-Per-View event.

In case you didn't know...

Clash of Champions was SmackDown LIVE and the WWE's last Pay-Per-View of the year, and it boasted a card consisting of a Triple Threat match between Dolph Ziggler, Baron Corbin and Bobby Roode for the United States Championship. a Lumberjack Match between Charlotte and Natalya for the Women's Title, and AJ Styles taking on Jinder Mahal in a WWE Title rematch amongst other matches.

The heart of the matter

The main event that closed out the Pay-Per-View was 'The Phenomenal One' AJ Styles vs 'The Modern Day Maharaja' Jinder Mahal with the pair given plenty of time to put on a show, and put on a show they did.

However when the dust had settled AJ Styles was able to submit the former WWE Champion with the Calf Crusher in the middle of the ring to close out the WWE's Pay-Per-View year. However, what happened after that?

Well, as dailywrestlingnews reports, nothing much more happened. After the show went off air AJ Styles continued to celebrate with his freshly retained championship in the middle of the ring, before an announcement was made that WWE will return to the TD Garden in Boston on Friday 30th March 2018 for a live event.

What's next?

On the episode of 'Talking Smack' immediately after the pay-per-view, AJ Styles sat down with Renee Young and Sam Roberts to discuss what was next for the 'Phenomenal AJ Styles' indicating that Jinder Mahal's time in the WWE Title picture was coming to an end following the 'Modern Day Maharaja's failure to regain the WWE Title he lost.

Author's take

Whilst the events at the end of the show may have been underwhelming, Clash of Champions was actually a really neat, solid Pay-Per-View with some pretty decent wrestling involved, so you should all check it out!
