After the success of WWE Clash at the Castle at the beginning of September, the sports entertainment giant returned to the United Kingdom with an untelevised live event from Glasgow, Scotland. Taking place from the OVO Hydro on October 30, the night featured a SmackDown crew, with the Raw roster having worked in Mexico the night before.

Headlining the night, as per PWInsider, was a six-man tag team match that featured Braun Strowman and The New Day pairing of Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods besting The Bloodline’s Sami Zayn and The Usos. Zayn is reported as having performed a Superman Punch a la Roman Reigns, though his attempt at a Spear was countered with a Powerslam.

Other notable events saw a well-received 15-minute Intercontinental Championship clash between GUNTHER and Shinsuke Nakamura, a Triple Threat contest between Liv Morgan, Shayna Baszler, and Natalya that saw the latter no-sell the finishing spot, and Karrion Kross wrestling Ricochet.
