WWE Clash at the Castle

SummerSlam 1992 was the last PROPER WWE PPV on these shores. 30 years on, we’re back back back in the UK with the first ever Clash at the Castle.

Speaking of SummerSlam, the 2022 edition was the first PPV without Vince McMahon in charge of the WWE.

If you’ve not been keeping up to date, Vince is out, Stephanie McMahon joint-boss, and Triple H the creative mastermind.

Much of the SummerSlam card was still fixed while Mr McMahon was in charge, but this time around it’s all Trips pulling the strings.

Cody Rhodes is still out of action, and with this being in the UK, the main event was always going to end up where we are: Drew McIntyre vs Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.

The first ever Clash at the Castle takes place at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales on Saturday, September 3.

Clash at the Castle has start time of 6pm in the UK (1pm ET.)

A one hour kick-off show starts at 5pm in the UK (12pm ET).

What’s the full match card and predictions for WWE Clash at the Castle?

Undisputed WWE Universal Championship: Roman Reigns (c) vs Drew McIntyre

Ever since we knew we were getting a UK PPV it looked like it was going to be Drew’s turn to get a go at the Tribal Chief (AGAIN).

We’d love to see Mac shock the world just over the border from his homeland, but Roman Reigns is still just too strong at this stage.

It’ll be close. It’ll be tight, but this is still Roman’s yard.

PREDICTION: Roman Reigns

WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship: Liv Morgan (c) vs Shayna Baszler

Liv Morgan managed to shrug off the challenge of Ronda Rousey, albeit not entirely fairly.

We can’t see her repeating that trick another time over against a stronger, more brutal opponent.

Shayna Baszler to win, and Ronda Rousey to make her presence felt.

PREDICTION: Shayna Baszler

Bianca Belair, Alexa Bliss, and Asuka vs. Bayley, Dakota Kai, and IYO SKY [Six-woman tag team match]

This content is imported from YouTube. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

Everyone and their friend was picking IYO SKY and Dakota Kai to win the vacant WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship, but Raquel Rodriguez and Aaliyah shocked everyone.

This time around CONTROL will be looking to make up for that with a satement win, and they’ll do it too.

We’ll also be watching the curtian with a keen eye in case Sasha Banks and Naomi rock up to make an appearance, too.

PREDICTION: Bayley, Dakota Kai, and IYO SKY

Matt Riddle vs Seth “Freakin” Rollins

Matt Riddle has a first name again!

And to celebrate, he’s booked in what we think will steal Match of the Night from everyone.

It’ll be an absolute classic, and Matt will get the edge here and start staking (another) claim for Roman Reigns’s crown

PREDICTION: Matt Riddle

WWE Intercontinental Championship: Gunther (c) vs Sheamus

This content is imported from YouTube. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

You can never, ever write off Sheamus, especially when he has backup like BUTCH and Ridge Holland.

But Gunther isn’t coming alone either, and he and Ludwig Kaiser look too solid to dislodge.

Gunther to extend his reign with the sort of dominant performance that is starting to make the IC title matter again.

PREDICTION: GUNTHER

Edge and Rey Mysterio (with Dominik Mysterio) vs The Judgment Day (Finn Bálor and Damian Priest) (with Rhea Ripley)

This content is imported from YouTube. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

Ooooh, this match is all about the add-ons.

The relationship (if you want to call it that) between Dominik Mysterio and Rhea Ripley is the sub (and dom) plot that absolutely makes this feud.

And we think it’ll be what makes the difference here: We think Dominik will decide that if he can’t beat them, he’ll join them – even if it means turning on his old man.

PREDICTION: The Judgment Day (Edge and Rey Mysterio)
