Happy Saturday Superstars! Thank you for reading the final WWE prediction post for 2017! Whew! The year has flown by and we are wrapping up and getting ready for a bigger, better 2018 here at GamersUnitedGG! I’m super excited about the changes and options that will be taking effect soon, but I will keep it under wraps for now. I have caught up on SD Live and can now make predictions based off of the last few shows.
Today’s predictions will be for the Smackdown Exclusive Clash of Champions event! Clash of Champions is the event where ALL titles are up for grabs! No ducking and dodging matches on the PayPerViews or have #1 contender matches for the “Chance” at battling for the title. Everyone’s a victim and ALL titles are fair game! Let’s suplex into the predictions!
Disclaimer: I only watched the last episode of Smackdown so I do not know the buildup or story behind these feuds.
Kickoff Match- Zack Ryder vs Mojo Rawley in the anticipated split once again of the Hype Brothers!
Prediction: Mojo Rawley will win!
WWE Championship Match – Champion Aj Styles vs Jinder Mahal is the rematch for the WWE Championship where Jinder is coming back for his title. He has been biding his time waiting until after Survivor Series to challenge Styles. Mahal has been playing mind games with the champ by initiating a “split” from the Singh brothers that was snuffed out the Styles. I expect the usual tricks of Mahal utilizing the SIngh Brothers to his advantage. Luckily, the Champion’s Advantage is in full effect so AJ Styles will have something in his corner!
Prediction: Aj Styles retains his championship!
Smackdown Women’s Championship Lumberjack Match – Champion Charlotte Flair vs Natalya (rematch). The rematch for the women’s championship match will be a lumberjack match! A lumberjack match is one where the other Superstars not participating, serve as lumberjacks and stand surround the ring on the outside. If a competitor exits the ring, the lumberjacks force them back into the ring, by any means necessary. This is the most interesting match-up to me because The Riott squad that has been terrorizing the SD Women’s locker room will be a part of the lumberjacks. This is a great time to get some revenge and jump the ladies that have been putting Women Superstars out of commission. I expect a lot of chaos and distraction during this match and I can’t wait!
Prediction: Charlotte Flair retains her championship
United States Championship Triple Threat Match- Champion Baron Corbin, Dolph Ziggler & Bobby Roode. Before I talk about this match I want to say that I am super happy to see Bobby Roode getting a title shot. I’m a bit disappointed with Monday Night Raw as Finn Balor, the first ever Universal Champion and a great Superstar and technician has not had any matches of substance since he returned from injury. this is one area where I think Raw needs to take a page out of Smackdown Live’s book. Anyway on the match!
Prediction: Bobby Roode is the new USA Champion!
Smackdown Tag Team Championship Fatal 4 Way- Champions The Usos, vs The New Day, vs Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin, vs Aiden English and Rusev! – The tag team division has been on fire at Smackdown Live lately. I will say that the New Day did a great job of getting themselves re-inserted into another Tag Team Championship match (seeing as the last time they faced the Usos was supposed to be the final chapter in this feud lol). I’m really excited for this match to see how it goes down. Only 2 competitors will be in the ring at a time so watching the different tag opportunities should be fun.
Prediction: Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin are the New Tag Team Champions
Breezango vs The Bludgeon Brothers – The Bludgeon Brothers surely win this match!
Those are my predictions for the Clash of Champions! Do you agree with my picks? Who do you think will win each match? What was your favorite event of the year? What do you think will happen next year? Let’s talk WWE!
