Drew McIntyre Reflects On ‘Bittersweet’ Loss To Roman Reigns At WWE Clash At The Castle WWE

Drew McIntyre has reflected on the “bittersweet” loss to Roman Reigns at WWE Clash At The Castle.

In September 2022, WWE held their first major stadium show in the UK since SummerSlam 1992 with Clash At The Castle in front of 60,000 fans at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

The event was headlined by Roman Reigns defeating Drew McIntyre to retain the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship thanks to some help from the debuting Solo Sikoa.

Speaking with Alex McCarthy of Daily Mail, McIntyre was asked if the moment was bittersweet given the atmosphere and ending of the match. He answered:

“For sure. It’s very rare that you ever get moments like that.”

“There’s a stadium full of people 100 percent on one guy’s side and the story has peaked at the right time and you have the chance to take a talent to that next, next, next level. That’s what we had at Clash.”

McIntyre continued on to further reflect on how things could have been and been since the Clash At The Castle main event, saying:

“But you need to look at the bigger picture. What are the plans for Roman and the Bloodline storyline, but at the same time it’s like, ‘Ah, could we do both? Theory has the Money in the Bank briefcase, there might be a way to pull this off, to look after Roman and the Bloodline story, which is the bigger picture, but at the same time take a talent to the next level?'”

“Everything happens for a reason and sometimes old McIntyre doesn’t quite get it done.”

“It’s the story of my life and my character’s life I guess, that I keep getting knocked down and I guess that’s why my fans keep rallying behind me and pushing me and believing in me because they see how hard I work and how much I believe, no matter how close I get and keep on getting it taken away from me, I’ll keep pushing forward until I finally get that moment.”

Drew McIntyre will compete at WrestleMania 39, when he challenges Gunther for the WWE Intercontinental Championship in a triple threat match also featuring Sheamus. For the full lineup for WrestleMania 39, click here.
