WWE Conflict on the Citadel is about to happen on Saturday September 3rd, from the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.
It is going to be the primary time WWE have hosted a stadium present within the UK since SummerSlam 1992 and followers have been flocking to ticket websites this week to get their fingers on these treasured tickets for the massive occasion.
Amid all the joy, GiveMeSport suggests six matches that ought to occur at Conflict on the Citadel.
Drew McIntyre vs. Roman Reigns
The massive one. Drew has been campaigning for a UK stadium present ever since he turned WWE Champion and was given a platform to talk on. The Scottish Warrior has performed an enormous half in getting Conflict on the Citadel to Wales and must be rewarded with the principle occasion slot in opposition to WWE’s all-conquering champion.
The truth that McIntyre has been all around the promos for the occasion suggests he would be the focus and we’ve already seen studies that WWE are delaying his inevitable showdown with Reigns for a stadium present, with Cardiff being the most probably vacation spot. The one particular person who may throw an enormous spanner within the plan is Tyson Fury, who’s having an on-going confrontation with McIntyre and WWE may look to money in on that and the UK flavour of the squabble by pitting them in opposition to one another in Cardiff.
Edge vs. Finn Balor
A giant fan favorite and one other massive UK and Eire primarily based title is Finn Balor and also you’d anticipate to see him given a giant match on the cardboard. Balor is at the moment concerned in a battle in opposition to The Judgement Day alongside AJ Types and Liv Morgan and set to face Edge, Damian Priest and Rhea Ripley at Hell in a Cell.
If WWE can stretch the programme additional, then one thing that deserves a giant stadium present can be the primary one-on-one assembly between Corridor of Famer Edge and The Prince. Balor has been a reputation dropped by Edge beforehand when talking on who he’d prefer to work with and judging by the Conflict on the Citadel poster we should always anticipate the Rated R Famous person to be a part of the occasion. Due to this fact, lastly having a cross-generational conflict between these two fundamental occasion stars in Cardiff looks like the right match.
Nikki A.S.H. and Doudrop vs. Sasha Banks and Naomi
Let’s assume that issues all work for one of the best for WWE and the present Ladies’s Tag Workforce Champions, having them a part of the cardboard would add extra weight to a title match in opposition to two women who can be near house in Cardiff – nicely nearer than they’re within the States.
We’ve solely simply began to see the mixture of Nikki and Doudrop come collectively and if there are plans to maintain them collectively, permitting Nikki to drop the superhero schtick, then a tag title match on UK shores would make sense for the 2 Scots. It doesn’t essentially matter who the champs are going into the bout, however given how in style Banks and Naomi are, it might give the match some further gravitas in an enormous stadium setting.
Becky Lynch vs. Paige
A giant stadium present is made for Huge Time Becks, however who may her opponent be? We’re throwing in a wishful pondering curveball right here, however with teases of a attainable in-ring return how becoming would a return be for Paige. The pair have historical past too, solid your minds again to Lynch’s call-up to the principle roster in 2015, it was Paige who she teamed with alongside Charlotte Aptitude within the trio often known as PCB.
A Paige return can be emotional on many ranges and Becky would experience being the unhealthy man in opposition to the returning house nation (ish) gal, trying to put her unhappy retirement behind her in a means we’ve seen Edge and Daniel Bryan get better from. It’s far-fetched sure, however Conflict on the Citadel wants some significant ‘moments’ to make it a memorable present and a return for the Anti Diva would definitely be that.
Sheamus vs. Wade Barrett
It’s been means too lengthy since we noticed Wade Barrett compete in a WWE ring, and what higher event for a return between the ropes than the most important UK present for thirty years. Making it a correct derby match between him and his previous pal Sheamus would solely add to the match and provides it that excellent flavour for a UK occasion.
Weaving of their former alliance as a part of the League of Nations and having Sheamus play the heel function accusing his long-time good friend of being ‘previous it’ and enjoying as much as the rivalry may make for a pleasant story on the present’s undercard. And it might be a fantastic excuse for Barrett to roll out the ‘I’m afraid I’ve acquired some unhealthy information’ line to the Celtic Warrior when he lastly accepts his Conflict on the Citadel problem.
Moustache Mountain vs. RK-Bro
We’d need to see Tyler and Trent on the identical web page once more (spoiler alert), however if you wish to give Conflict on the Citadel a correct UK vibe, then you must embody two of essentially the most acquainted faces on WWE’s UK scene. You have got Tyler Bate, the first-ever WWE UK Champion and nonetheless lauded as one for the long run, alongside Trent Seven who has been a real ambassador for NXT UK and somebody who deserves a second in the principle roster highlight.
Opposing them? Nicely, why not the most well-liked tag workforce in all of wrestling proper now in RK-Bro, making this match a fan favorite affair that might kick issues off in Cardiff to essentially get the 70,000 followers in attendance going. Randy is extra over than he’s probably ever been and simply think about the enjoyable he may have with Riddle dealing with these massive robust bois.
