Unexpected Name Tops WWE Clash At The Castle Merch Sales

Cody Rhodes CM Punk on WWE Raw

Clash at the Castle has been and gone and despite several Scottish stars fighting for gold in their home country it was left to another WWE star to top the merchandise sales at the event.

Drew McIntyre’s dreams were broken by CM Punk at Clash at the Castle as Punk screwed the Scottish Warrior out of the World Heavyweight Title in his match against Damian Priest. An irate crowd turned on the event as they were denied the feel-good moment of seeing McIntyre hold up title gold in his home country.

Piper Niven received a hero’s welcome but was also unable to leave Glasgow with a title as Bayley retained her WWE Women’s Championship.

There was some good news for the Scottish stars in action on the show as Alba Fyre & Isla Dawn won the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship ending the reign of Jade Cargill and Bianca Belair in the process.

But despite the Scottish talent on display at the event as far as the crowd goes, it seems their money was spent supporting The American Nightmare.

Fightful Select has now reported that despite the home country talent on display at the event, it was Cody Rhodes who emerged as WWE’s top merchandise seller at Clash at the Castle. Despite his unpopular decision to cruelly deny Drew McIntyre and the Scottish fans a very special moment, CM Punk is also said to have performed well as did the “Scotland 3:16” match inspired by Steve Austin whose “Austin 3:16” shirt was released a full 28 years ago.

Cody Rhodes retained his WWE Championship on the show by defeating AJ Styles in a brutal and bloody I Quit match.
