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

WWE has moved the King of the Ring Finals from Clash of Champions to Raw next Monday.

Does it makes it more obvious about who is winning it?

Vince thinks rating will go up for the finals

Everything in this company is so last minute. And yes, to me, this does make it more obvious that Corbin is winning. I can't even explain to you why, I can't give you a reason, it just.....feels more obvious.

I can't wait for The Fiend vs Seth Rollins for the Universal title to be moved from HIAC to NXT to combat Attitude Era Wrestling on TNT.

CoC is already bloated with what 11 title matches, plus Reigns/Rowan, giving it more time on Raw is probably the right move, although it could be argued it deserves a spot on the card more than Roman but you can't have him miss 2 ppvs in a row (although Bryan is).

And therefore he put Baron Corbin vs Chad Gable in the finals.

Here's an idea, maybe they shouldn't be so literal with the name "Clash Of Champions" and move worthless matches like Nakamura vs Miz off the card, or Cedric vs AJ for the US title, or any of the 3 tag matches, etc, to make some room for this. Not EVERY title NEEDS to be defended. At no other PPV would this ever happen, but because of a name, they pull stunts with what gets on it.

I think this is more a ratings stunt, though, especially considering the Network has no official sign off time for PPV's. They could quit at 3:30 in the morning if they wanted to.

Corbin closing RAW as the king sounds dreadful. They're probably gonna bring Kurt Angle out there to eat an End of Days for more heat. Because nothing matters but heat right Vince?

I still don't understand the move. What babyface is Corbin gonna feud with as king? Is he just gonna come out every week cutting the same promo about how he's king and retired Kurt Angle?

Corbin winning on RAW will get boo'ed out of the building and Vince will mistake that as good heat.

Remember what they did with Barrett? That's gonna be the same thing. He'll be feuding with the likes of Gable, Ricochet, Ali, Murphy, etc. Some midcarders. And also, he'll be losing to them, because it's "great" when you present yourself as the KING, but then fall flat right on your ass. Great heat, right?
