WWE is set to close out their year on pay-per-view with SmackDown's Clash of Champions show on Sunday night. And while there's enough talent on both rosters for pretty much every PPV to have some promise, the card is about as uninspiring as it gets.
Tension between Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan, someone who will likely never be cleared to wrestle again by WWE, is the most compelling thing heading into Clash of Champions. While AJ Styles vs. Jinder Mahal for the WWE Championship may be the main event, Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn vs. Randy Orton & Shinsuke Nakamura is the real marquee match of the show.
A stipulation calls for Owens and Zayn to be fired from all of WWE if they lose, which seems likely to set up Bryan saving their jobs in some form. The match itself should be at least good, but it's difficult to see what the payoff is.
