WWE Clash At The Castle 2022 DVD Review feat. Roman Reigns vs. Drew McIntyre

This is our DVD review for WWE Clash At The Castle 2022. And it’s the latest DVD review for our site. So, let’s see what we think of Clash At The Castle 2022!

Personal Experience

Before I get into the show, let’s talk about the occasion itself. This was the first UK PPV in a stadium setting for 30 years. And I was amongst those lucky enough to attend the historic moment for the company and for the British fanbase.

It felt big-time from the moment I arrived in Cardiff. WWE had essentially taken over the city, with signage everywhere from street corners to shopping centres to Cardiff Castle itself. Furthermore, various wrestling legends from Bret Hart to the Undertaker were also in town for unrelated events. All of this set the table nicely for the supershow itself from the stunning Principality Stadium. So, as an attendee, it was a fabulous weekend. As for the PPV itself? Let’s delve into the card …

Clash At The Castle 2022 Under Card

Bianca Belair, Asuka & Alexa Bliss vs. Damage CTRL is an enjoyable if overly long opener. However, of far greater note is Gunther vs. Sheamus, a classic match for the Intercontinental Championship. These two absolutely destroy one another for around 20 minutes in an incredibly physical and compelling manner. This one match alone restored value in the much-maligned IC strap and is a must-see attraction.

Elsewhere, Liv Morgan vs. Shayna Baszler is okay but instantly forgettable. Edge & Rey Mysterio vs. The Judgment Day stands out for Edge’s entrance, with fans singing along loudly to Metalingus. Not forgetting Dominick Mysterio’s act of treachery toward the babyfaces afterward. And Seth Rollins vs. Matt Riddle is very good, and it could have stolen the show on any other night.

Clash At The Castle 2022 Main Event

Drew McIntyre’s shot at dethroning Roman Reigns as WWE Undisputed Universal Champion closed the show. Due to McIntyre’s two WWE title reigns happening without fans in attendance, Drew has long been overdue a true “moment”. Add to that Roman’s title reign surpassing two years, and his lack of credible contenders and a title switch here made perfect sense.

Except, it didn’t happen. Outside interference aplenty occurred in this match, with the final external contribution ensuring that Roman would retain. It was a big disappointment, but the match itself is absolutely fantastic and a classic in its own right. However, it could have meant so much more if it had delivered the most fan-friendly outcome.


Though the main event outcome is a letdown, the show as a whole is terrific. There are two great matches, some significant storyline developments, and a hot-as-hell crowd. I don’t know if this card will achieve the same legacy as its natural predecessor SummerSlam 1992. But for entertainment value and historic purposes, this is an instant purchase of a wrestling DVD.

Overall Rating: 8.5/10 – Excellent
