Dave Meltzer has reported on this week’s version of the Wrestling Observer E-newsletter that the deliberate primary occasion for WWE Conflict At The Fort, emanating from the Principality Stadium at Cardiff, Wales on September 3, 2022, is Roman Reigns Vs. Drew McIntyre.
“The plan for the present as of proper now could be Roman Reigns vs. Drew McIntyre as the principle occasion,” Meltzer studies, earlier than including “but when Tyson Fury is a part of the present, it may change to him towards McIntyre”.
How this impacts WWE’s different large-scale stadium occasions is unclear, since WWE has not constructed one other act on SmackDown to McIntyre’s degree; then once more, the model cut up is hardly enforced in 2022. It could be unusual for WWE to e book such a large and doubtlessly profitable occasion, solely to job out the house nation (nearly) hero and kill the territory, so this may – may – even play host to the most important title change in all of wrestling.
In information associated to the occasion, ticket gross sales have failed to satisfy projections. 30,000 tickets have been offered at time of writing, regardless of WWE hyping up that 85,000 tickets had been signed up for to traders.
