Triple threat match for the WWE United States Championship: Baron Corbin (c) vs. Bobby Roode vs. Dolph Ziggler
Baron Corbin’s short reign as United States Champion has been a dominant one. He’s steamrolled through Sin Cara on SmackDown and The Miz at Survivor Series. But can he take out “The Showoff” Dolph Ziggler and “The Glorious” Bobby Roode in one night?
There’s a rumor going around that Dolph Ziggler will be leaving WWE soon, so I doubt that he will win the U.S. Championship. My guess is that Bobby Roode will win this match by pinning Ziggler, sparking a feud with “The Lone Wolf” Baron Corbin who will feel as if he never lost his title.

WWE Championship match: AJ Styles (c) vs. Jinder Mahal
“The Modern Day Maharaja” Jinder Mahal will likely be back on top before this year’s WrestleMania. But will his climb back to the top start at WWE Clash of Champions?
“The Phenomenal” AJ Styles might just be WWE’s best all-around wrestler. And he doesn’t want his second WWE Championship reign to be short-lived. He missed the main event of last year’s WrestleMania. He won’t mess up this opportunity (at least for tonight).
Styles will look very weak to suffer two back-to-back defeats. On the other hand, Mahal will look incredibly strong if he defeats Styles, putting the thought in the minds of fans that Mahal may have beaten Lesnar if given the chance. But it isn’t Mahal time back on the top yet. Styles needs to recover from his loss, then Mahal can knock off Styles at Royal Rumble before going on to face John Cena at WrestleMania 34.

If Owens and Zayn lose, they will be fired from WWE: Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn vs. Randy Orton & Shinsuke Nakamura w/ Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan as special guest referees
Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens have been backed into a corner with this match. They have to battle “The Viper” Randy Orton and “The Artist” Shinsuke Nakamura. Plus, their arch nemesis SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon will be the special guest referee. That’s a real bummer for Big Kev and The Underdog of the Underground.
Update: SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan has just been added to the match as the second special guest referee. I wonder how that will play into the outcome of this match.
Somehow. Someway. KO and Zayn will pull off the victory. They may even have to knock Shane out and make his hand slap the mat three times for it to happen.

Lumberjack match for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion: Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Natalya
“The Queen” Charlotte Flair is one of the best in the game for a reason. It’s not so hard to take that strap off her shoulder (unless, of course, you’re Sasha Banks). Natalya may not be a boss, but she is “The Queen of Black Hearts.” She’ll also be looking to prove critics wrong and dethrone SmackDown‘s supposed queen at Clash of Champions.
This match may not even see a winner as the Lumberjacks (or lumberjills) might just lose control and hijack the match. The NXT trio of Ruby Riot, Liv Morgan, and Sarah Logan may just inject themselves into Charlotte and Natalya’s championship match again. Maybe this time, the ring will collapse with all the women wrestlers fighting it out, brawling to the ground and tearing the house down with it.
But really…I see “The Queen” Charlotte Flair standing tall at the end of the match.

Fatal 4-way match for the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship: The Usos (c) vs. The New Day vs. Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable vs. Rusev & Aiden English
This fatal 4-way match for the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Titles is sure to tear the TD Garden down. Only one team will walk away with the silver and blue straps around their waists and shoulders.
The dark horse candidates to win are Rusev and Aiden English as they’ve mostly stayed away from the limelight despite English’s work in classical theater.
The Usos may just walk away with another dominant victory and incarcerate three additional teams inside The Usos penitentiary.
Or maybe it’s time for ya boys The New Day to reign supreme once again…baeee-beeee!!!!!
I think it’s Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin’s time to rise to the top of SmackDown‘s tag team division. Benjamin deserves better than being back in the tag team game, but this can be a big stepping stone on his way to challenging for the WWE Championship…
Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable win the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship
The Bludgeon Brothers vs. Breezango
This match will be a brutal affair for Breezango. I’d be extremely surprised to see Breezango walk away with the victory. This match is probably going to be a squash match to make The Bludgeon Brothers look like absolute beasts.

Kickoff Match: Mojo Rawley vs. Zack Ryder
This match will be the launching pad of Mojo Rawley to the mid-card. Rawley will be wrestling for the WWE U.S. title in no time. But don’t count out Zack Ryder. He may just surprise his former bro with a Rough Ryder. But my money is on Mojo…
