WWE Clash of Champions 2017 is at 06.30 AM IST.

As it is right now, Ryder vs. Rawley is the only pre-show match.

A pair of championship rematches headlines the SmackDown-only event.

Antonio Brown out after helped off field with calf injury
With Brown done for the day, the Steelers are again be without one of their best players when facing off against the Patriots. It was a costly loss, one that saw the top seed and home-field advantage in the AFC playoffs stolen in the final seconds.

Lesnar did indeed overcome Styles at WWE's fall classic - though it was a closer fight than Jinder probably expected - and The Modern Day Maharaja was quick to rub it in the champion's face on the first SmackDown LIVE after the dream match went down. There is some merit to that argument. Three teams will be competing for The Usos' SmackDown Tag Team Championships in a fatal-4-way, and SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte will have a lumberjack match against Natalya. Rusev and Aiden English are least likely to win with odds of +535.

Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin earned a title shot against the Usos, but weren't able to seal the deal. They can be a made team in one night. So if you've been enjoying WWE Mayhem since it came out last week or have yet to try it, but are intrigued by this live event business, read on for how to check out the pay-per-view and partake in the game's event. That's not even considering all the original content the service offers, some of which is not especially great but there are quite a few shows that are super interesting to watch as a wrestling fan as it gives you more of a behind the scenes look at the business or just a deeper look into the individual wrestlers in their daily lives.

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn will be going up against Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura - with Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan as the special guest referees. I hear they both know that El Generico guy and could get some tips from him about working under a hood. His character is top notch when a heel and this is a good chance to have him turn, steal the U.S. Title and become "The Glorious" Roode we're all wanting. But how would the WWE explain it?

JOHN POWELL: Daniel Bryan defies Shane McMahon setting up a war between these two, although there really shouldn't be as Shane is the commissioner and Bryan is just the General Manager. Shane would be the special referee and if Owens and Zayn lose, they're completely fired. Owens and Zayn are involved in a story that could go in any number of directions. It would never happen as every one of them has a huge underground and independent following that makes them too likeable. For the latter half of 2017, Shane McMahon and Kevin Owens have had a very personal and very heated rivalry that has seen the recent addition of Sami Zayn.
