Roman Reigns defends the WWE Universal championship against Drew McIntyre in the main event of today’s (Sat., Sept. 3, 2022) WWE Clash at the Castle pay-per-view (PPV) from Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
It’s all about McIntyre returning “home” to get his next big shot at the title.
There’s been a lot more build than that, of course. Pretty much all of that is covered in this video here:
But while Reigns has been a lot of the focus of television for a long time now — that happens when you’re the champion — that’s just been in celebration of his being just that. There’s not much promotion to do with that.
McIntyre, on the other hand, has been the subject of a media blitz.
That includes beautifully done promo spots like this:
That doesn’t feel like the kind of thing you shoot for a guy who is going to travel across the world, presumably get hero’s welcome, and then lose, does it?
Then again, a certain heavyweight boxing great will be sitting ringside for the match. That same heavyweight boxing great has been challenging McIntyre to a match for years now. There were reasons it couldn’t happen in 2020. Those reasons no longer exist.
We’ll see what happens soon enough.
