Who is on the match card for Clash at the Castle: Scotland so far?

DAMIAN PRIEST (C) vs DREW MCINTYRE (World Heavyweight Championship Match)

Drew McIntyre is set to feature on both nights in Glasgow, and will be given a hero’s reception by a rapturous home crowd, in what is sure to be an electrifying atmosphere for Clash at the Castle: Scotland. On Friday Night SmackDown, McIntyre will face off against his old friend and rival, Sheamus. In the main event on Saturday, McIntyre will challenge Damian Priest for the World Heavyweight Championship.

Drew McIntyre’s return to his homeland is the highpoint of what has been a rollercoaster of a journey. This year, Drew finally captured the World Heavyweight title in front of live fans at WrestleMania XL. However, his reign ended abruptly when CM Punk attacked him, allowing Damian Priest to cash in his Money in the Bank contract and become the new World Heavyweight Champion. McIntyre’s reign lasted a mere five minutes and 46 seconds.

Now fully healed, The Scottish Warrior is determined to reclaim his title. After months of injury, defeat and verbal sparring between Drew and Damien, will McIntyre’s return to his homeland give him the power to dethrone the current World Heavyweight Champion and take the title for himself? 

CODY RHODES (C) VS AJ STYLES (Undisputed WWE Championship ‘I Quit’ match)

After putting on the match of the night at Backlash France in May, AJ Styles demanded a rematch which he initially failed to be given. However AJ Styles came up with a plan and one fake retirement speech later, AJ Styles had Cody Rhodes alone in the ring. Like Mark Henry did to John Cena in 2013, he would flatten the champion before hitting his signature Styles Clash on Cody. Cody would retaliate by making this match, but also making it an I quit match, a stipulation AJ Styles has never lost in. 

BAYLEY (C) VS PIPER NIVEN (Women’s Championship Match)

Fellow Scottish legend Piper Niven faces off against Women’s Champion Bayley after weeks of torment by Piper and her teammate Chelsea Green gave SmackDown general manger Nick Aldis no choice but too make Piper Niven the No. 1 contender to Bayley’s Women’s Championship.

SAMI ZAYN (C) VS CHAD GABLE (Intercontinental Championship Match)

After helping Sami Zayn defeat Gunther at WrestleMania, Chad Gable would soon snap after failing in his attempt to defeat Sami Zayn not long after. Gables bitterness would spread to his allies, the Alpha Academy, which didn’t sit right with Sami Zayn. After a second failed attempt to win the championship at Sami Zayn at King and Queen of the Ring, Sami Zayn gave Chad Gable another shot at his Intercontinental Championship.


After a series of tag team matches involving the Champions were interrupted by their opponents at Clash at the Castle, Jade Cargill & Bianca Belair would create this triple threat match to settle this in the ring. This match is also another hometown match for the team of Alba Fyre & Isla Dawn.
