That would explain it. Last weekend, WWE presented Clash At The Castle, its first stadium event in the United Kingdom in over thirty years. The show took place in front of 60,000+ fans and was one of the biggest cards that WWE has presented in a very long time. That meant the show needed a major main event and that is what it had, but then things got weird. Now we know what went wrong.
The main event of Clash At The Castle saw Roman Reigns defeat Drew McIntyre to retain the Undisputed WWE Universal Title. Following the match, McIntyre and world boxing champion Tyson Fury got in the ring and sang songs before the show ended. According to Freddie Prinze Jr. on the Wrestling With Freddie podcast, the Fury/McIntyre segment was not meant to make the broadcast but WWE forgot to cut off the feed. The segment is still included in the version of the show published on the WWE Network and Peacock.
Opinion: This is a little hard to fathom, as WWE’s production team tends to be a lot sharper than this, especially on major shows. At the same time, the segment is still available on the current versions of the show. It’s a possibility that WWE did not want it to air, but having someone like Fury appear with McIntyre seems like the kind of thing that they would want to present rather than hide.
What did you think of the segment? Should it have aired? Let us know in the comments below.
