In a pay-per-view that featured 11 matches and 10 title defences, only two changed hands in WWE Clash of Champions 2019. Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler defeated Raw tag team champions Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman in a predictable turn of events to win the championship, while The New Day lost the WWE SmackDown tag team championship to The Revival.
While there were quite a few stellar moments including the return of The Fiend Bray Wyatt to close the show, the overall evening was lackluster in terms of titles changing hands.
The WWE Clash of Champions evening saw WWE champion Kofi Kingston defeat Randy Orton to retain the title as he countered a running punt to the head with a Trouble in Paradise for the win. Universal champion Seth Rollins too defeated former tag team partner Braun Strowman with four finishing Stomps plus a Pedigree. The victory, however, was short-lived as when Rollins hit the top of the ramp to celebrate the win, the lights went out and Bray Wyatt emerged as The Fiend to hit Sister Abigail from behind before applying the Mandible Claw.
