Post WWE Clash at the Castle Review

What an incredible Premium Live Event (PLE) WWE hosted in Scotland for the first time ever this past Saturday! Plus, an amazing first-ever 4-hour talk show live on Newport City Radio. What do you think? Let us know your thoughts!

We caught up with the presenters of the newly formed show “ARE YOU READY!” to get their final thoughts on Clash at the Castle. Was it what they expected?

CJ: For me, the whole card and matches were great and very enjoyable to watch. I feel that the finish of Cody and AJ’s “I Quit” match was weak, but overall it was a great match. I was super shocked to see Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn win; I’m glad they did, as it gave the fans of Scotland something to scream and shout about. The IC match lacked a bit at the start, but I liked the tease of Chad and Otis’s turn—I thought it was going to happen at Clash. The main event was indeed broken dreams for Drew and for the fans in Scotland. The shot of CM Punk coming in as a second ref was epic! The botch by Damien was concerning, but much respect to him for carrying on with the match. France, you have some competition now after hearing the crowd in Scotland!

Luke: The third UK PLE in consecutive years is in the books. On paper, it didn’t have the same hype and expectation as the original CATC in 2022, but what it lacked in anticipation, it more than made up for on the night. Solid contests throughout, including the opening brutal bout between Cody Rhodes and AJ Styles. A rather surprising title change saw hometown tag team heroes Isla Dawn and Alba Fyre win a triple threat match. The story between Chad Gable and Sami Zayn seems to be over… for now, as Zayn retained. Another hometown hero, Piper Niven, was unable to claim the world title from Bayley. With a SummerSlam tussle against Nia Jax on the horizon, I personally feel that a Bayley win was inevitable. Speaking of inevitable, CM Punk once again screwed Drew McIntyre out of the world heavyweight championship. As mentioned in the Bayley match, there was an air of inevitability with Damien retaining and going on to face Gunther at SummerSlam. Expect him to eventually lose that world heavyweight championship while the biggest storyline in pro wrestling between CM Punk and Drew McIntyre continues to develop.
