WWE Clash At The Castle 2022: Match Card, Start Time, How To Watch, Predictions
Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming WWE PPV in Wales.
This weekend, WWE is returning to the UK with a major event. Clash at the Castle will take place at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales on Saturday, September 3, 2022. The show will be headlined by Undisputed Champion Roman Reigns defending his title against Scotland's Drew McIntyre. Here's everything you need to know about the event.
One of the moment the past week people are talking about is the segment featuring Matt Riddle and Seth Rollins--the two got into a fight in the parking lot before the show, and refs were readily available to stop it. Rollins taunted Riddle, saying his wife left him and took his kids, before calling him a "bitch" multiple times. You can watch the explosive segment below.
As of this writing, there are three championship matches on the Clash at the Castle card. Two Europeans will be battling over the Intercontinental Championship as Gunther defends his title against Sheamus. More matches will be booked in this week, which includes the Mysterio/Edge vs. Judgment Day match book Monday night.
For the first time in a long time, the folks in the UK will get a wrestling event that doesn't take place during the middle of the night. Sadly, fans in Australia will probably want to check out the event the next morning. Check out the start times around the world below.
- 10 AM PT

- 6 PM BST
- 3 AM AEST (September 4)

For predictions, you can check out an episode of GameSpot's Wrestle Buddies where hosts Mat Elfring and Chris E. Hayner go through every match on the Clash at the Castle card--as of August 30--and predict the outcomes. For a couple predictions in written form, check out a couple of selections below.
Gunther vs. Sheamus
It's nice to see the IC title on a PPV. As much as it makes sense to keep the title on Gunther to make him a fighting champion, there's one thing to keep in mind: Sheamus is one title away from being a Grand Slam Champion, and all he needs is the IC Championship. Sheamus has worked his butt off for the company since he's been a part of it, and this seems like a layup prediction.
Liv Morgan vs. Shayna Baszler
We're all still talking about Morgan's win over Ronda Rousey, where Morgan tapped out before Rousey was pinned--even though the ref counted the pinfall. Refs? Am I right? The audience has turned on Morgan a little bit here and there--although they were championing the heck out of her prior to the win. Baszler is another beast--and former MMA fighter to boot--so we see one of two things happening: Rousey comes out towards the end of the match and beats up Morgan or Morgan gets another wonky win where the ref isn't paying attention. Either way, it's not clean.
