WWE Clash at the Castle has its main event

The worst-kept secret of the past two months has been WWE’s desire to book Drew McIntyre in the main event of the upcoming Showdown at the castle pay-per-view (PPV), scheduled for Saturday September 3, 2022, at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. It finally became a reality when they stopped beating around the bush and had him beat Sheamus in a Good Old Fashioned Donnybrook match on Friday Night SmackDown last week.

The question then became who he would challenge for the WWE Universal Championship, and that was decided in the main event of Slam summer last night in Nashville. Roman Reigns, as he always does these days, emerged victorious in his Last Man Standing match against Brock Lesnar.

The tractor be damned.

This sets the stage for another clash between the two big men, who have some history. The last singles meeting between the two was a knockdown at Survivor Series in 2020, but they also went one-on-one at Wrestle Mania 35 in 2019.

The theory still holds true, however, given that his Money in the Bank cashout attempt failed so spectacularly at Slam summer.

As of this writing, there are no other matches scheduled for the show at this time.
