The main event is reportedly set for WWE Clash At The Castle on 3 September, with a UK favourite scheduled to challenge Roman Reigns.
Drew McIntyre is scheduled to challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WWE Clash At The Castle, it has emerged. However, ‘The Scottish Warrior’ will only contend Reigns at Principality Stadium if Tyson Fury isn’t involved in an in-ring capacity, otherwise, he’ll be wrestling ‘The Gypsy King’.
This comes via the Wrestling Observer Newsletter’s Dave Meltzer, who reports that Fury’s involvement at Clash At The Castle will have major implications on Drew McIntyre’s role at the event:
“The plan for the show as of right now is Roman Reigns vs. Drew McIntyre as the main event, but if Tyson Fury is part of the show, it could change to him against McIntyre.”
Tyson Fury retired from professional boxing following his recent victory over Dillian Whyte, meaning he’s retired undefeated, bar a December 2018 draw with Deontay Wilder. His record stands at 32-0-1.
Fury has already expressed interest in facing Drew McIntyre at WWE Clash At The Castle in what would be one of the biggest WWE matches of the year (h/t GiveMeSport):
“Don’t rule me out of fighting there! You might see me at SummerSlam. I got to speak to Vince [McMahon] and the boys! I know Drew McIntyre has been saying a lot of things about me! I’d love to be at Cardiff!”
Dave Meltzer also reported that Roman Reigns’ current itinerary of Undisputed WWE Universal Championship defences will see him challenged by Riddle and Randy Orton at Money In The Bank on 2 July and Randy Orton at SummerSlam on 30 July, respectively. If Tyson Fury is unavailable, then Drew McIntyre will be next on his list at Clash At The Castle.
