Drew McIntyre earns WWE Universal title match at Clash at the Castle


Drew McIntyre is heading to Clash at the Castle.

McIntyre defeated Sheamus in a Good Old Fashioned Donnybrook match on Friday’s SmackDown. In a match that featured tons of weapons, tables, and shillelaghs, McIntyre got the win with a claymore as Sheamus was kneeling. As a result, McIntyre will now face the winner between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar at Saturday’s SummerSlam at Clash at the Castle, which takes place in Cardiff, Wales on September 3.

After the match, McIntyre said that someone had to take the title off of the “part-time champion”, referring to Reigns. This was when Theory attacked McIntyre from behind with the Money in the Bank briefcase.

The match between McIntyre and Sheamus was originally set to take place on the July 15 edition of SmackDown. However, Sheamus complained that he “had COVID", with McIntyre defeating Ridge Holland instead. On last week’s SmackDown, McIntyre issued a challenge to Sheamus for the number one contendership. Sheamus agreed they would face next week in a Good Old Fashioned Donnybrook match.
