WWE holds their Clash of Champions pay-per-view tonight and it appears that they have plans for a surprising main event.

Kofi Kingston will defend his world title against Randy Orton. Seth Rollins will put his Universal Championship on the line against Braun Strowman.

However, with both of those matches world title bouts and the entire theme of Clash of Champions being all title matches, the main event is rumored to be a non-title match.

What is main event of WWE Clash of Champions?

According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, which has offered some legit spoilers in the past, Roman Reigns vs. Erick Rowan is booked as the main event.

That is interesting, as Erick Rowan has never worked the main event match in singles action before and there is no confidence that he is ready now.

WrestleVotes did clarify that this was the plan as of Saturday but plans do change, which covers him in case Reigns vs. Rowan does not go on last.

There are two modes of thought when it comes to Roman Reigns vs. Erick Rowan in the main event at WWE Clash of Champions.

First, this story was built up before SummerSlam with the mysterious backstage attacks on Roman Reigns. When Rowan turned out to be the culprit instead of Daniel Bryan, it was a slight surprise.

If this is the main event, there has to be a plan for it to end with something shocking to make it worthy of the spot.

Another idea is that the other two matches are not set up with true show-ending potential. WrestleVotes reports there are serious considerations to take the Universal title off Seth Rollins tonight, which would be huge for Braun Strowman.
