The 2022 WWE Clash at the Castle is set to be one of the most epic events in WWE history. This September 3 PPV event will see a Steel Cage match for the WWE Universal Championship between champion Brock Lesnar and challenger Roman Reigns. The highly anticipated main event will take place at the Principality Stadium, Cardiff, UK.
This will be the first time the two superstars will face each other one-on-one since their brutal rematch at WrestleMania 34, which saw Lesnar retain his title. Since then, both men have gone on to have successful careers, with Lesnar continuing to dominate as WWE Universal Champion and Reigns cementing himself as one of WWE’s top superstars.
Most WWE fans will be watching with bated breath as the organization arrives in Cardiff, Wales, for WWE Clash at the Castle. The first UK stadium performance in thirty years may not be a WrestleMania-style spectacle, but there is a lot of excitement surrounding it.
WWE Clash at the Castle promises to be one of the year’s best shows, with a massive main event between Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre and a profoundly personal confrontation between Matt Riddle and Seth Rollins. Indeed, given the company’s recent clever narrative and expert building, each match and feud may go in various directions while the event is running.
The Head of the Table will commemorate his historic two years as champion one day before facing Drew McIntyre at WWE Clash at the Castle in Cardiff, Wales!
For the first time in more than 30 years, a big WWE event will be held in a UK stadium, with a sell-out crowd expected in Cardiff.
The 74,000-capacity Principality Stadium will be the country’s first venue of its magnitude to hold an extravaganza by the world’s best-known wrestling promotion since Wembley Stadium did so in August 1992.
A massive TV audience from across the world will be watching the action, which pits Scottish Goliath Drew McIntyre against Roman Reigns at the top of the card.

Peacock is divided into three tiers: free, premium, and premium plus. A Premium subscription is required to see WWE content. The good news is that it will cost you $5 a month, which is less than the $10 for WWE Network.
If you live outside the United States, you may watch SummerSlam on the WWE Network as usual.
WWE Clash lineup at the Castle
Drew McIntyre vs. Roman Reigns:
McIntyre defeated Sheamus as the latest Undisputed WWE Universal Champion challenger to Reigns, who defeated Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam.
“It’s going to be one of the biggest events not just in WWE history, but in any kind of show,” McIntyre predicts, anticipating explosions inside and outside the ring.
“The fans are the most important thing: they’re so loud, wild, and enthusiastic.” The supporters in the United Kingdom are the best in the world, and I’m not saying that just because I’m from here.
“They’re the most audible. When I attempt to convey it to Americans, it’s like saying, ‘Watch one of the football games back home, the enthusiasm in the stadium.’ It’ll be one of the loudest locations on the planet.”
Shayna Baszler vs. Liv Morgan:
Morgan defends her WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship against another ex-MMA fighter after defeating Ronda Rousey at SummerSlam.
Shayna Baszler competed in the UFC twice and won the opportunity to face Morgan by winning a gauntlet match.
Bayley, Iyo Sky, and Dakota vs. Bianca Belair, Asuka, and Alexa Bliss Kai
Following Becky Lynch’s shoulder injury, Asuka and Bliss partnered with champion Bianca Belair, whom Belair defeated at SummerSlam to retain the Raw women’s title.
After the combat, Sky, Kai, and Bayley joined forces for the first time.
Riddle vs. Seth Rollins:
This highly anticipated match had been slated for SummerSlam but was postponed due to “creative modifications.”
Away from wrestling, there is enmity between the two, which was sparked in part by Riddle’s wife using a photo of Lynch, who is married to Rollins, in an Instagram post that drew accusations of body shaming.
Sheamus vs. Gunther:
To earn this match, Sheamus defeated Happy Corbin, Madcap Moss, Ricochet, and Sami Zayn in the ‘Fatal Five-Way.’
The experienced Irishman is currently the number one contender for Gunther’s WWE Intercontinental Championship.
Roman Reigns has been the global champion for nearly two years and the WWE champion since WrestleMania, but his reign as champion may be coming to an end. Drew McIntyre defends his WWE Universal Championships against Roman Reigns at Clash at the Castle on Saturday, WWE’s first pay-per-view in the United Kingdom since 2003. If Reigns wins, he’ll almost certainly keep the gold until WrestleMania.
Outside of the title event, the most anticipated bout at Clash at the Castle will be between Matt Riddle and Seth Rollins. (Yes, Riddle regained his first name!) The two were supposed to wrestle at SummerSlam, but their match was moved to this night. The build-up has been fantastic, including a tremendous interview section on Raw this week, and both Rollins and Riddle have a track record of delivering in big-match situations.
