Report: Update On WWE's Plans For Clash At The Castle Weekend
What does WWE have planned for the weekend of Clash At The Castle?
WWE will hold their first stadium show in the United Kingdom since SummerSlam 1992 when the company heads across the pond for Clash At The Castle on September 3. The pay-per-view/premium live event is scheduled to take place at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
While UK fans will be getting a major event, they won't be able to see Raw and SmackDown in person. Alex McCarthy reported on Inside The Ropes' Monday Night Live that as far as he is aware, Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown will not be taped in the UK. Instead, SmackDown will be taped in the United States the week before September 3, which would be August 26, while the main roster talents will head back to the United States for Raw on Monday, September 5.
WWE do have other plans for the weekend, though, and shows are planned for Friday, September 2, and Sunday, September 4. What those shows will be is currently unknown but they could involve NXT and NXT UK, McCarthy noted.
No matches have been announced for Clash At The Castle as of yet, although Drew McIntyre did challenge Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns to a match at the September 3 pay-per-view on Friday's episode of SmackDown.
