Cruiserweight title match added to WWE Clash of Champions


Humberto Carrillo is getting the next shot at the Cruiserweight title.

Drew Gulak will defend his Cruiserweight Championship against Carrillo at Clash of Champions. Carrillo was set up as Gulak's challenger for the pay-per-view by defeating Oney Lorcan in a number one contender's match on this week's 205 Live.

Carrillo and Lorcan were the two survivors in last Tuesday's Captain's Challenge match. They teamed with Jack Gallagher, Akira Tozawa & Isaiah "Swerve" Scott and defeated Gulak, Ariya Daivari, Mike Kanellis, Angel Garza & Tony Nese in an elimination match.

Gulak retained his title against Lorcan on the SummerSlam pre-show earlier this month. He then defeated Lorcan again in a rematch on 205 Live.

  • Universal Champion Seth Rollins defending against Braun Strowman
