A new report has provided some details about the rumoured changes to the WWE Clash At The Castle main event on the 3rd of September.
Drew McIntyre defeated Sheamus on a recent edition of SmackDown to become the new number one contender for the Unified WWE Universal Championship at Clash At The Castle.
McIntyre is due to take on Roman Reigns for his dual championship after The Tribal Chief survived his Last Man Standing match with Brock Lesnar – and his tractor – at SummerSlam.
On the 5th of August edition of SmackDown, however, things took a twist when McIntyre was attacked by a returning Karrion Kross in front of Reigns and The Usos. With the champion indifferent to his challenger taking a beating, Kross’ wife Scarlett placed an hourglass in front of Reigns indicating that his time was running out.
Given what happened, many fans had speculated that Karrion Kross could be added to the Clash At The Castle main event in Cardiff, turning the bout into a Triple Threat affair.
According to Dave Meltzer speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, however, that is not the case, and McIntyre vs. Reigns in a one-on-one match is what will take place:
“For Cardiff, it is still Roman and Drew and I was told – of course, this could always change – but I was told it’s really not gonna change. They feel that has to be the match. So as far as when [Kross] is getting his shot at Roman Reigns, I have no idea when that will be.”
