WWE Conflict on the Citadel emanates from Principality Stadium in Wales right this moment, Saturday, September third, the primary main stadium occasion within the UK in over 30 years. This is the lineup for the present and what to anticipate, in addition to how one can watch it reside.
Roman Reigns has been champion for over 700 days, regardless of being a part-time wrestler. Each USA and Fox absolutely would love a world championship belt to look extra continuously on their reveals. Drew McIntyre’s championship run passed off in the course of the pandemic in entrance of empty arenas and Thunderdome screens. The present is happening in a stadium within the UK. Does all of this bode properly for a title change tonight? That largely relies on whether or not Triple H believes in Cody Rhodes the best way Vince McMahon apparently did. If he does, then it is sensible to attend to let Cody dethrone Reigns as a result of it will cement his place as a megastar. However then once more, Haitch may nonetheless be bitter about that complete throne smashing factor…
Liv Morgan will defend her Smackdown Girls’s Championship towards Shayna Baszler, which should be kid’s play since she already beat Ronda Rousey, proper? Nicely, Liv hasn’t precisely been booked as a powerful champion, and even her win over Rousey is questionable. However do not count on Morgan’s run to finish right here.
Iyo Sky and Dakota Kai already misplaced the event to crown new Girls’s Tag Staff Champions. Will Bayley’s secure lose their second huge match as properly? Hopefully not, however this one is a toss-up.
Riddle will lastly get his shot at revenge on Seth “Freakin” Rollins in Wales right this moment. Why is Riddle so mad? It is easy. Riddle is caught with just one title, whereas Seth “Freakin'” Rollins resides it up with three. Perhaps if Riddle wins, Seth can drop the “Freakin'” and Riddle can begin going by Matt once more, as has been closely rumored to occur (however not mirrored within the official present preview on WWE.com).
In what could possibly be the sleeper match of the evening, Gunther defends the Intercontinental Championship towards Sheamus in Wales. Will Triple H’s outdated exercise buddy win the belt? It is doable however unlikely. Triple H is not excellent, however he is a hell of a extra smart booker than Vince McMahon was, and the good transfer right here is for the veteran Sheamus to place over rising star Gunther in a match that showcases each males’s crowd-pleasing, hard-hitting kinds.
Edge and Rey Mysterio tackle Judgment Day on the PLE right this moment, a feud that feels very pre-Haitch WWE since we have seen a number of variations of this matchup seemingly time and again for months. Hopefully, Dominik Mysterio lastly activates his father to pursue his future as Rhea Ripley’s intercourse slave so this feud can lastly transfer on to new territory.
Conflict on the Citadel streams on Peacock in the USA and WWE Community in all places else beginning at 1PM ET.
