This article covers a developing story. Keep checking back with us as we’ll add more information as it becomes available.
- Roman Reigns vs. Drew McIntyre for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship
- Liv Morgan vs. Shayna Baszler for the SmackDown Women’s Championship
30 years later, WWE eventually returned to the UK for a major PPV. Yes, there were those Rebellion and Insurextion shows in the late 90s and early 2000s, but they don’t really count because they weren’t on the same scale as this one. Clash at the Castle will take place at the Principality Stadium. A location capable of accommodating nearly 75,000 fans, making it the biggest WWE event to take place in the UK since SummerSlam 1992. Hopefully the main event is as iconic as Bret Hart v British Bulldog was to this show, but more on that in a second.
Much like the semi-annual tours in Saudi Arabia, Clash at the Castle taking place outside of North America means a very different start time for those of you watching in the United States. Clash at the Castle kicks off at 6 p.m. local UK time on September 3. The time difference means the show will start at 1 p.m. EST and may well be preceded by a kickoff show as well. If you fancy watching what will be a pretty historic show on a Saturday afternoon, you can do so on Peacock in the US and the regular WWE Network everywhere else. Everything announced for the show so far, including this main event, can be found below.
Roman Reigns vs. Drew McIntyre for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship
Looks like Drew McIntyre is next in line to try and dethrone Roman Reigns for a very long time. The Scottish psychopath will finally get his chance in his home country in Clash of the Castle. Eventually beating Sheamus to earn the opportunity after The Celtic Warrior continued to dodge him, McIntyre may well pose the biggest threat to The Tribal Chief’s 700+ day reign so far.
Such a threat, in fact, that it seems incredibly likely McIntyre will end it when the two battle it out in Cardiff. As alluded to above, WWE will be eager to create that moment that fans have been talking about for years, and that could be it. Karrion Kross might get thrown into the mix somehow, and Theory hides with his briefcase, but hopefully this match stays as it is and McIntyre gets a huge win.
Liv Morgan vs. Shayna Baszler for the SmackDown Women’s Championship
Liv Morgan shocked the WWE Universe somewhat when she defeated Ronda Rousey at SummerSlam. His reign felt a lot like a month-long thing that WWE threw at fans to shut them up. Morgan’s run continues however, and in Clash at the Castle, Rousey’s best friend Shayna Baszler will attempt to avenge her friend. Baszler won a seven-man match to book his spot against Morgan.
It’s unclear which direction WWE will go with Morgan, Baszler, and even Rousey. Suffice to say, the boos the champion received while trying to explain her victory at SummerSlam came as a surprise to Morgan and those in charge of her fate. That combined with Triple H now at the helm, who has always been a huge Baszler fan, could lead to a major title change in this one.
