Next Sunday is Clash of Champions, where all the championships will be defended. A quick glance at the card is enough to expect a palatable show. Barring any tremendously bad booking decisions, there is no reason for Clash of Champions to suck. It may not be the most exciting card, but it’s decent, at least.
With this in mind, there are three matches taking place in Boston that have a ton of potential. Will they be Match of the Year quality? Hard to say. Still, they could definitely be the highlights of a solid night.
Bobby Roode v. Dolph Ziggler v. Baron Corbin
According to some people on Reddit, this match has been happening at house shows, and it’s been pretty good. It’s a shame that Ziggler and Roode’s first few matches were marred by bad booking and no one really caring about Dolph. The two-out-of-three-falls match they had to qualify for Survivor Series was actually a pretty good match.
The one people worry about is Corbin. People think his ring work sucks or he has to be carried. Whatever. Corbin is more than capable of holding his own. He really shines in triple threats. Remember that one he had with Kalisto and Apollo Crews? Or the one with AJ Styles and Dolph Ziggler? What about AJ Styles and Sami Zayn? Or AJ Styles and Tye Dillinger?
Ziggler is no AJ Styles, but he’s still very good in the ring. Roode is also great, albeit not as exciting to watch. If anything, this match will be like the one at Hell in a Cell. But come Clash of Champions, these three could put on a great triple threat.
