Two Title Matches Announced For WWE Clash Of Champions

Update: WWE has also announced The New Day will defend their Tag Team Championship against The Revival at Clash Of Champions.


 

WWE has confirmed Shinsuke Nakamura versus The Miz will take place at next month’s WWE Clash Of Champions pay-per-view. WWE.com posted the following preview for the match:

The Miz is out to the restore the glory of the Intercontinental Championship when he battles Shinsuke Nakamura in a match of pure retribution for the illustrious title at WWE Clash of Champions.

On the Aug. 20 edition of SmackDown LIVE, Miz became the first Superstar to feel what Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura was capable of, with Sami Zayn guiding Nakamura as his spokesperson to unleash a vicious sneak attack on the A-Lister.

The following week, a determined Miz arrived on the blue brand with a challenge for WWE’s Rockstar: Defend the Intercontinental Title against him at WWE Clash of Champions so that the eight-time Intercontinental Champion could regain the title that he believes he once again made prestigious.

Emerging by his lonesome, Zayn scoffed at the notion that Nakamura or the Intercontinental Title would ever need to associate with Miz to gain prestige and claimed the star of the hit reality show Miz & Mrs. was soft. A laser-sharp Miz darted out of the ring to “beat some respect” into Sami, but Shinsuke was on hand once again to blindside and pummel Miz, laying him out for the second straight week with multiple Kinshasas as a giddy Zayn commented on the microphone in euphoria and held Miz down for the attack.

In the wake of the carnage, the reigning Intercontinental Champion accepted the challenge on social media. But, will Miz be able to overcome not only Nakamura, but the danger that Zayn brings to The Artist? Find out at WWE Clash of Champions on Sunday, Sept. 15, streaming live on the award-winning WWE Network.
