On Friday’s SmackDown, Sheamus defeated Ricochet, Sami Zayn, Madcap Moss, and Happy Corbin to earn a shot at Gunther’s Intercontinental title. He will now face Gunther at WWE Clash at the Castle, which takes place on September 3 in Cardiff, Wales.
The story of the match had Sami Zayn, in his hometown, go to the back after injuring his shoulder, taking white noise from Sheamus off the top rope. He eventually returned and attempted to pin Ricochet after hitting the helluva kick. However, Corbin broke up the count, dragging Zayn out of the ring and posting him. The finish had Corbin looking to pin Ricochet, but Sheamus came in and hit the brogue kick, pinning Corbin to win.
On last week’s SmackDown, Gunther pinned Shinsuke Nakamura to retain the Intercontinental title.
Here is the current lineup for Clash at the Castle:
- Roman Reigns vs. Drew McIntyre for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship
- Liv Morgan vs. Shayna Baszler for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship
- Gunther vs. Sheamus for the Intercontinental Championship
- Seth Rollins vs. Riddle
- Bianca Belair, Asuka, and Alexa Bliss vs. Bayley, Dakota Kai, and IYO SKY
