WWE Plans For Drew McIntyre At Clash At The Castle Revealed

WWE Clash at the Castle will be a big night in the career of Drew McIntyre.

At the first Clash at the Castle event in 2022, Drew McIntyre ended the night singing a bizarre duet with Tyson Fury having lost out to Roman Reigns.

McIntyre’s been on something of a rollercoaster ever since, spending time out of the ring, dropping from World Title contention, and being surrounded by contractual uncertainty. But at WrestleMania 40 that all changed.

At the event, McIntyre defeated Seth Rollins to win the World Heavyweight Championship, and although he promptly lost it to Damian Priest, the future looks bright.

Writing in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that McIntyre is set to face Priest for the gold at Clash at the Castle.

The world title match with Damian Priest defending against Drew McIntyre is expected to take place at Clash at the Castle on 6/16 in Glasgow, Scotland. It’s notable because that angle has been started with Priest positioned as the babyface, but in Scotland, no doubt McIntyre will be the strong babyface.

Meltzer surmised that McIntyre will either become World Champion or be screwed over by CM Punk, either way setting up a clash between the pair.

Furthermore, it’s been reported the match between Drew McIntyre and CM Punk could finally take place at SummerSlam.

Why Did Drew McIntyre Sign A New Contract With WWE?

At the end of April, The Rock announced that Drew McIntyre had finally signed a new WWE contract. While there’s been no official comment from WWE or the Scottish star about the details of the contract, it’s believed to be for “big money” and will keep the former World Champion where he is for three more years.

Speaking in a new interview, Drew McIntyre said the driving factor behind the new contract was to simply be happy.
