Welcome to Ringside News’ live results for WWE Clash of Champions 2020 PPV.
Clash of Champions is the show where all the belts are on the line, and tonight’s will see the two biggest Championships in WWE defended in two tense rivalries. Drew McIntyre will face Randy Orton in an amublance match for the WWE Championship, which should bring their bitter feud to a close. Meanwhile, on the SmackDown side of things, Universal Champion Roman Reigns faces his cousin Jey Uso. After emerging as a surprise challenger, Jey has skyrocketed and cut some great promos (not to mention Roman’s stellar heel turn) to make this the most anticipated match of the night.
On the women’s side of things, Bayley battles Nikki Cross for the SmackDown Women’s Championship, but we’re certain Sasha Banks may rear her blue head. Surprisingly, over on the RAW side, the bout between Asuka and Zelina Vega has, at this time, been relegated to the Kick-Off Show. Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura defend the SmackDown Tag Team Titles against Lucha House Party in a match that seems far more suited to the Kick-Off Show.
The other matches tonight include The Riott Squad challenging Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler for the Women’s Tag Team Titles, Bobby Lashley defending the U.S Championship against Apollo Crews, The Street Profits putting the RAW Tag Team Titles on the line against Angel Garza & Andrade, and what should be the match of the night, Jeff Hardy Vs. Sami Zayn Vs. AJ Styles in a ladder match for the Intercontinental Championship.
It’s a stacked card for Clash of Champions 2020 and, on paper, we could be looking at one of the best PPV’s of the year. The Kick-Off Show begins at 6PM EST, and the main card an hour later. Let us know what you’re excited to see and enjoy the show!
The Clash of Champions Kick-Off Panel consists of Charly Caruso, JBL, Booker T, and Peter Rosenberg. They joke around and Booker T says he hopes Retribution jumps Charly tonight. The panel run down the card for tonight and reveal that the opening match with be the Triple Threat Ladder Match for the Intercontinental Championship. Also, Shayna Baszler and Nikki Cross have both been medically disqualified for tonight, and so their respective matches have been cancelled.
We see a video package for the excellent feud between Roman Reigns and Jey Uso, and the panel discuss if this match could destroy their family. Booker says it certainly can because that’s what the ladder to success can do. Rosenberg says everyone gets into their line of work to be a star and Jey knows he has a special chance to make his mark tonight. JBL remembers that, when The Uso’s debuted, nobody cared about them, but every time they left the ring the fans were on their feet. JBL says they won’t care about family, they’re gonna beat the hell out of each other. Rosenberg says we’re gonna see magic or tragic tonight.
Kayla Braxton is backstage with Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura, who are inside their “Champion’s lounge”, and drinking champagne. Kayla asks if their celebrations are premature and Cesaro laughs, saying Lucha House Party cannot hang with them. He says he and Nakamura speak different languages but in the ring they are like Pippin and Jordan, Hobbs & Shaw, then Nakamura says Simon & Garfunkel and starts singing “The Sound of Silence”. Kayla asks about their loss to The Street Profits and the Champions ask her to leave because she’s harshing their buzz.
The panel discuss the U.S Championship match and almost all of them think Apollo is being foolish to fight The Hurt Business and his focus isn’t on Lashley or the Championship, he’s more concerned with his family at home.
MVP is interviewed in a split screen and Rosenberg asks if he’s sick of Apollo Crews. MVP says he’s sick of dumb questions. He says business is booming, so obviously Apollo isn’t much in their way, and tonight Lashley will hurt Apollo again, and hurt his kids’ feelings. Booker says Cedric Alexander is undersized, so how does he fit in The Hurt Business, to which MVP says Cedric is a college athlete and intelligent, someone he has great plans for, and he sees himself in Cedric. JBL says The Hurt Business is one of the best things in many years, and asks how things will progress: MVP says they plan on earning lots of gold by expanding across borders. He also says he hears people talking about colour but the only colour he cares about is green.
R-Truth shows up dressed as an old-timey prospector, because tonight is “the gold rush”. He puts his 24/7 Championship in a pan and flips it, looking for gold. The panel joke around with him and he says he was “scared stiffity” with the shark on RAW last week, but he’s unconcerned about losing his title tonight. Truth runs off with his title and pan, and Booker gives it the Shucky Ducky Quack Quack moment of the night.
A new interviewer asks Andrade and Angel Garza how they will fare without Zelina Vega. Garza says they don’t need baggage weighing them down, she was the one instigating their problems. Andrade says Vega is in the past, and now they have each other’s backs and they are the future RAW Tag Team Champions. Andrade says The Street Profits say they want the smoke, and Garza says they’ll have to extinguish their fire first.
Sami Zayn joins the panel and asks why they’re referring to Jeff Hardy as the Intercontinental Champion. Charly says Jeff has the title. Sami asks who pinned Jeff on Friday night, and reminds everyone that he won the title, beat Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania, and never lost it. AJ won a fraudulent tournament to steal his title, then Jeff took it from him but it’s not the real belt. If Jeff or AJ had any etiquette they would have tossed the title and asked him for a title shot. Booker says Sami can call himself the interim Champion if he wants but he needs to win tonight to be the real Champion. Sami says Booker just threw him off and if he loses tonight it’s Booker’s fault.

Winners: Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura
The final match up for discussion is the Ambulance Match for the WWE Championship. Booker says the adrenaline will push both guys through tonight, despite their recent injuries. Booker says Randy wants to be talked about in the same breath as John Cena or The Rock, and Rosenberg says Randy is certainly the best wrestler. JBL says we’re in for a hell of a night and he’s been blown away by McIntyre, but he’s got that broken jaw and it will have an affect. Booker says Randy will have a plan A, B, C, through Z, so he will win tonight. JBL agrees and Rosenberg reluctantly says it’s Randy’s night.
And that’s it for the Kick-Off Show. The main card starts right now and you’re not going to want to miss the opening bout. Enjoy!
