    The following have been added too

    Chris Jericho v Sami Zayn

    Rusev v Roman Reigns for US Title

    Match 7 between Sheamus and Cesaro

    Bayley added to Women's Championship match to make it a triple threat

    TJ Perkins v Brian Kendrick for the Cruiserweight Title

    Nia Jax v Alicia Fox on the pre show

    Looks like a very strong show

    It should be a good show if they don't ruin it with screwy finishes.

    I'm guessing HHH will help Owens defeat Rollins in the main event.

    Roman Reigns to end up Tag team & US & Universal Champion by the end of the night.

    God love ya watching a 3 hour RAW and a 3 hour single-brand PPV the night before another 3 hour RAW!

    Why did they leave out the "the"... i.e. shouldn't it be "Clash of THE Champions"? Just one of those annoying changes they make that annoy me.

    Anyway, looks like a cracking card match quality wise, but the storylines behind most of the matches are weak, so it's hard to care too much. The contrast with the SD ppv a few weeks ago is huge.

    I don't think I've ever seen a PPV thread so quiet! They've only had the brand split for a long month and we're suffering from over-saturation already.


  • Registered Users Posts: 894 ✭✭✭cian68


    I like it. The PPVs are usually a good time and the TV is so weak I say have as little TV between PPVs as possible. (Watch me get burned on this in a few hours when HHH cashes in some new money in the bank)


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,108 ✭✭✭johnnysmack


    Wait this is tonight!?!! Well that crept up on me! Time to put the coffee on.


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,990 ✭✭✭✭Lithium93_


    Seriously debating whether to stay up for this or just read the thread tomorrow morning..

    Was in the middle of posting a summary of why the overall card is uninspiring, then hit clear text, can't be arsed.

    Much like RAW creative can't be making it appear important.

    Cesaro v Sheamus sums it up. No matches in the whole thing felt important and we were bound to be sick of it by the end. A match that needs a Gimmick, street fight, cage, anything to jazz it up.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,301 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    The build up has been extremely subpar, and I can't say there's a massive stand out match.

    Owens vs Rollins will probably be great in the ring, but I guarantee there'll be a cluster**** of an ending, probably with HHH getting involved again. I know that tomorrow when I come back to this thread, it will be discussing HHH's interference....

    After that, it's a tonne of matches we've seen multiple times; New Day vs Gallows & Anderson, Cesaro vs Sheamus, Rusev vs Reigns. The Women and Jericho/Zayn might do well, but neither are "I can't wait" matches.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,036 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    The fact I forgot this was on until I saw this bumped says a lot.

    Agree with TSC on the main event, it screams screwy ending. Will read the results tomorrow.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,469 ✭✭✭LeeJM


    Im off to Portugal tomorrow morning so really i could easily stay up and watch this.....BUT I have a nagging feeling that its not gonna be good. Dont get me wrong, i hope it is. Owens/Rollins, Sheamus/Cesaro, Zayn/Jericho, TJP/Kendrick, Roman/Rusev and Banks/Bayley/Charlotte on paper is a fantastic card. But if Sasha is off the womens match will be a disaster, the cruisers might only get 10 mins total, Sheamus and Cesaro will play out to silence and mean nothing in 2 weeks time, Roman isnt over, Zayn and Jericho has no heat behind it and we all know HHH is making an appearance in the Title match


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,657 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    I'll watch it tomorrow at fast forward.

    With regards the tag match, I would like New Day to lose the titles, but not to The Club.


  • Registered Users Posts: 59,975 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Ye I couldn't be arsed watching it live.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,320 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Picture on the PS4 is superb but the sound is going on and off.

    Using a power plug on an updated PS4 FFS


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,010 ✭✭✭seandotcomm


    Wouldn't even let me watch the live stream. I had to watch from the beginning, 10 minutes behind...


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,320 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009

    Think I sorted my issues.(upstairs plug with the Ethernet cable connection to the PS4 was not fully plugged in lol)


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,108 ✭✭✭johnnysmack


    Are enzo and Cass not on the card at all?

    Serious question here, who am I supposed to be cheering for in the Owens vs Rollins match? I've not enjoyed RAW lately so only seen bits and pieces but even from the vignette I've no idea who WWE want me to root for. Rollins the whiny git or Owens the arrogant suit? Entire story seems to be based on Rollins complaining that Stephanie didn't help him win while Owens needed Corporate help to win so are they both heel?

    Gonna be fairly pissed if the Club don't leave champs. So sick of New Day.

    It was an interesting touch by the commentators to mention the history of how few teams have been tag champs in WWE and IWGP.


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Music Moderators, Regional Midlands Moderators Posts: 24,123 Mod ✭✭✭✭Angron


    Yeah, it's nice that they've been a bit more acknowledging of Japanese titles since lads like Styles, Finn, The Club, and Nakamura have come in.

    Oh come the **** on.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,320 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Hell in a cell is the next raw ppv on 30th Oct

    I can almost guess who will be In the actual HIAC match cough Owens cough Cesaro.

    New day retain yet again


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,386 ✭✭✭✭Turtyturd


    Crowd were fairly hot for that.

    All I can see on Big E's boots is the Black Spider-Man/Venom symbol.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,010 ✭✭✭seandotcomm


    Haha, love the Street Fighter style entrance for Perkins


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Music Moderators, Regional Midlands Moderators Posts: 24,123 Mod ✭✭✭✭Angron


    Oh, just noticed the ropes are purple.


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Music Moderators, Regional Midlands Moderators Posts: 24,123 Mod ✭✭✭✭Angron


    Kinda odd being able to see the wrestlers heading back up the ramp, and the refs going down to the ring from behind the commentators.
