WWE Clash of Champions 2021 date and venue revealed
According to a report by PWInsider, the WWE Clash of Champions 2021 pay-per-view is scheduled to take place at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio on September 26.
The report also reveals that a live Monday Night RAW TV recording will be held at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts on September 13. This venue was originally announced to host SummerSlam 2020 but the pandemic situation canceled the schedule.
2020 Clash of Champions pay-per-view took place inside the WWE ThunderDome at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida while the 2019 edition took place in Charlotte, North Carolina.
And while Clash was skipped in the WWE pay-per-view schedule in 2018, the event was held in Boston, Massachusetts in 2017 and in Indianapolis, Indiana in 2016.
Until 2016, this particular event was billed as Night of Champions, but after the brand extension Draft in the same year, WWE brought back the original name used in the WCW schedule, back in the days for a PPV where usually the champions would collide in high-stake matches.
The 2021 edition of Clash of Champions will be the first time that the PPV will be held in Columbus. It will also be the first Peacock/WWE Network Special following WWE’s biggest event of the summer, SummerSlam set from the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In more news, WWE is set to return to the legendary Madison Square Garden arena in New York City on September 10 for a live SmackDown TV episode. PWInsider reports that WWE will return to The World’s Most Famous Arena for a live TV taping. However, there is no update available on when tickets will go on sale.
WWE apparently had multiple holds for potential dates at the MSG over the next year. The September 10 date has just been internally locked in as of last week. Usually, the company runs its annual post-Christmas non-televised live event on December 26 from this venue. There’s no update whether that date has been kept intact for later this year.
WWE’s visit to Madison Square Garden will happen after a gap of a couple of years. Back on September 9, 2019 (leading up to Clash of Champions PPV of that year), an episode of Raw featuring Stone Cold Steve Austin aired from the venue. The following night, The Undertaker made his final TV appearance at The Garden in an episode of Tuesday Night SmackDown Live.
