WWE Clash of Champions will take place on Sept. 27. Here are five things that need to happen at the Pay Per View.

Every title should be on the line at WWE Clash of Champions 2020 on Sept. 27, because, well, that’s the premise of the Pay Per View. It’s the “Gold Rush”.

But beyond the need for title defenses, here are five results, stories, or stipulations that need to take place at the show.

Randy Orton beats Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship

Randy Orton has received praise as one of the top three heels in WWE right now alongside SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley and the Monday Night Messiah Seth Rollins. The Viper’s best work has often come as a remorseless villain, handing out RKOs and steel chair shots like The New Day hand out pancakes. But now, Orton is using the Punt Kick again, which has made his rivalry with Drew McIntyre even more brutal.

When McIntyre defeated Orton at SummerSlam in their first WWE Championship match, we knew the story between them wouldn’t be finished then and there. Orton taking a loss by roll-up well? Never! The Viper attacked McIntyre with three Punt Kicks one night later. And then McIntyre retorted with three Claymores.

McIntyre has been a very good WWE Champion since claiming the title at WrestleMania 36 and becoming Raw’s top babyface in the process. But it’s time for him to move on from the title. He’s done a good job, but he hasn’t truly elevated the title, nor do we want to drag out his reign so that fans start souring on the strong work he’s done.

It’s time for a new champion, and Orton has been on fire in 2020. He should walk out of WWE Clash of Champions 2020 with the belt.
