Here’s what’s coming. Next weekend, WWE will present Clash At The Castle from Cardiff, Wales for its first United Kingdom stadium show in over thirty years. The show has been treated as something very special and there is a chance that it is going to be one of the better shows WWE has put on in recent memory. It is such a big event that the company is doing something different with another show.

WWE taped the September 2 edition of SmackDown in advance this Friday in Detroit, Michigan. The show was the second half of a double taping, following the initial live show, in preparation for the roster flying to Wales next week. The taped show will be the go home show for Clash At The Castle and had several matches announced in advance on this week show. Here are the results, courtesy of

* Karrion Kross defeated Drew Gulak
* Ronda Rousey called out Adam Pearce about her suspension. Pearce said it was lifted and she is reinstated, but said that if it were up to him she’d be fired and that she is “single biggest b**ch he’s ever met.” Rousey locked him in an armbar.
* Hit Row defeated Maximum Male Models and then Los Lotharios came down and helped the heels attack Hit Row until The Street Profits made the save.
* Happy Corbin cut a promo trashing Detroit and issued an open challenge, which Shinsuke Nakamura accepted.
* Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Happy Corbin
* Butch defeated Ludwig Kaiser and after the match Gunther and Sheamus had a staredown.
* Viking Rules Match: Viking Raiders defeated The New Day
* Roman Reigns’ two-year championship celebration was hosted by The Usos and Sami Zayn. Roman arrived at the arena but was hit with a Claymore Kick by Drew McIntyre, who then went to the ring and took out The Usos and Zayn.

Opinion: This is the kind of show that feels like a second part to the show that aired this week. That is not the worst thing to see as the company was able to set things up, knowing full well that the show was going to be taped immediately thereafter. Clash At The Castle is looking like a solid show and now I want to see how the final push towards the show is going to go.
