Following last night’s SummerSlam event, the main event for WWE’s Clash at the Castle Premium Live Event was made official after The Tribal captured Chief Head of the Table, Roman Reigns, The Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar in an epic Last Man Standing Match. Scottish warrior Drew McIntyre, who defeated Sheamus in an Old Fashioned Donnybrook Match on Smackdown, will take on undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns for both of his coveted titles.
Now that the main event has begun, WWE unveiled the poster for the September Clash at the Castle event featuring Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns. Clash at the Castle will be live on September 4 from the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, on Peacock TV in the United States and the WWE Network everywhere else. This will be the first PPV in the UK in nearly twenty years since the exclusive Raw Insurrextion PPV in 2003. In addition, Clash at the Castle will be the UK’s first joint brand PPV as each PPV after the original brand expansion in 2002 became exclusive to Monday Night “Raw” or Friday Night “Smackdown.”
It won’t be the first time WWE has ventured onto the UK scene in those twenty years, as the company has had the NXT UK brand in place for nearly five years. “NXT UK” has their Takeover PPVs and has held them in places like Cardiff and Blackpool. On ‘NXT UK’ stars like Gunther, Butch and Pretty Deadly all made their names known to WWE before coming to the United States to compete on ‘Raw’, ‘Smackdown’ and ‘NXT 2.0’.
It’s unclear what else is currently set for Clash at the Castle; however, in addition to McIntyre vs. Reigns, we expect to see both the “Raw” and “Smackdown” Women’s Championships at play, and of course the WWE Undisputed Tag Team Championships.
