Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman will be involved in two major championship matches at next Sunday's Clash of Champions pay-per-view, but we may know how one of them may play out.
Rollins and The Monster Among Men will defend their Raw Tag Team Championships against Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler. Later on in the evening, Strowman will challenge The Architect for his Universal Championship.
Strowman has received a big push in main event years, but is he going to walk out as the new Universal Champion? A spoiler for an upcoming WWE show in Edmonton, Alberta has provided quit the indicator.
One fan on Twitter shared an ad for a Rollins vs. Bray Wyatt Universal Championship match in Edmonton on Sept. 21 - which means that The Architect will most certainly retain his title over Strowman. You can see a video of the advertisement alone (hat tip to Ringside News for sharing this).
A victory for Rollins won't be surprising in the least here, considering that Sky Bet listed him as a 1/2 favorite, while Strowman is a 6/4 underdog. It should be noted that they're 6/5 underdogs in the tag team match against Roode and Ziggler - who are listed at 8/13 favorites.
Rollins is still the main face of Monday Night Raw, and it seems a tad bit early for WWE to change its Universal Champion. He defeated Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam to become the new title holder, and giving the belt away one month later just doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
Plus, Wyatt is seeing plenty of success with "The Fiend" gimmick, so he seems to be in good position for a big main event push. That's why it's safe to think that a Universal Championship reign is in Wyatt's future.
What Does The Future Hold For Strowman?
Assuming Strowman loses in both title matches, it's anybody's guess what the creative team will do with him next. Strowman's Money in the bank cash-in went to waste last year, and he's yet to hold a major title in WWE. But Vince McMahon is still high on Strowman, so it's impossible to know if and when the latter will eventually get his hands on the Universal or WWE Championship. Simply losing both title matches next Sunday will only set back his push even more.
