Ratings are so bad they're hoping this keeps viewers watching

Re: King of the Ring Finals on "RAW" next week instead of Clash of Champions

It actually makes sense. Clash of Champions is a title-centric show outside of Roman/Rowan and that card is already way too crowded since the mandate is that "every title in WWE MUST be defended!" or whatever.

They must think putting the King of the Ring final on TV will provide a nice "hook" to grab viewers. Too bad it's so embarrassingly obvious who's winning, and it's not just because the final is on Corbin's home turf of Raw because that doesn't mean anything anymore.

Corbin has been winning much more then he has all year. I don't give a shit if he wins king or not, but let's continue with this booking plz.

Makes no difference.

We're still going to see King Corbin crowned on Raw now instead of Clash of Champions.

It's indicative of how KOTR is viewed I suppose, CoC has too many matches but you could argue the finals are already more important than half the matches on the card (mainly because the majority of them are super thrown together) and not feel obliged to defend literally every title on the show. I think Corbin winning makes the most sense because what the hell would they do with Chad Gable and a king gimmick since it's basically always given to a heel now, but him getting to the finals is a surprise in itself so I could see them just going all the way with it to try and be shocking for the sake of it.

So much salty Corbin hate tears here...

He got a huge pop and chants. But some of you will just keep on crying and denying his accomplishments. Corbin is going the distance. Live with it.

If any match should be off the card its Roman and Erick.

I mean I think its gonna be a hard hitting huge fight feel type match but givin what the ppv is about it doesn't belong. Should have kept the KOTR final on there and have Roman vs Erick on Smackdown. Give them like 20 minutes on there.

Re: King of the Ring Finals on "RAW" next week instead of Clash of Champions

It seems the reason is because we already have 11 matches son the card, 10 title matches and a Roman match (because he can't miss 2 PPV's in a row right)? This is why I said months ago that Clash Of Champions should be what Survivor Series usually is now. Champion vs. Champions. That way you get 5 matches with champions and then you ca sprinkle in 3-5 more under card matches. Imagine a card of:

Seth Rollins vs. Kofi Kingston
Shinsuke Nakamura vs. AJ Styles
Bayley vs. Becky Lynch
New Day vs. The OC (the only reason Strowman and Seth are the champions is to advance their Universal Title feud)

As for the rest of the card it could be:
Drew Gulak vs. Libce Dorado vs. Humberto Carillo CW Title match
Alexa Bliss/Nikki Cross vs. Mandy Rose/Sonya Deville Women's Tag Title match
Chad Gable vs. Baron Corbin KOTR Final
Erik Rowan vs. Roman Reigns

That is 8 matches, perfectly fine and good card.

Also I believed they mentioned on Raw that R Truth is contractually obligated to defend his 24/7 Title, so unless it's a backstage skit, we have 12 matches

I think it should happen at CoC because it would have been 13 years since the last KotR was on a PPV. As for the match I could see it going either way it could go on after the match with them in a feud like Helmsley/Mankind.
