Two huge matches have become official for Clash of Champions match card on last night’s WWE Raw. In a backstage segment on the show, Braun Strowman opening admitted that he wants to challenge Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship. The champion did not back down from his first title match after winning it at Summerslam and thereby the match was made official.
That’s not the only match that Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman will be competing in. Later the night on WWE Raw, we received a tag team turmoil match featuring teams Heavy Machinery, The Revival, The B Team, The Lucha House Party, Robert Roode, and Dolph Ziggler, Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins, The Viking Raiders, Luke Gallows, and Karl Anderson. The team of Ziggler and Roode won the match pinning Otis of Machinery to become new number one contenders to the WWE Raw Tag Team Titles. Being the champions, Strowman and Rollins will have to defend the titles at Clash of Champions in a second matchup. It’s no wonder that Strowman already mentioned Clash of Champions to be a historic night.
Indications were already there of a fallout between the two names involved in the celebration for their tag team championship win. Braun Strowman was very much clear about his goal to ‘get these hands’ on the Universal Championship. Plus, reports also suggested that he should be the next in line to challenge the champion for the title. But the scenario changed as these two became new WWE Raw tag team champions. But WWE.com still hinted a tension is going around them.
“Although Braun Strowman clearly has his eyes locked on Seth Rollins’ Universal Championship, The Monster Among Men and The Beastslayer proved to be a strong team this past Monday night on Raw, conquering Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson to become Raw Tag Team Champions despite the attempted intervention of United States Champion AJ Styles. What’s next for this strange-but-successful pairing, and how will The O.C. respond to their defeat?”
By the end of the night, we learned that Braun Strowman will indeed be up for a monstrous challenge at Clash of Champions alongside Seth Rollins. They will have to compete in the Universal as well as for the tag team titles on a rare occasion.
