The real reason for the bizarre ending to the WWE Clash At The Castle event, featuring Drew McIntyre and Tyson Fury, has been revealed.
In the main event of the show, Roman Reigns defeated Drew McIntyre with an assist from Solo Sikoa to retain the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
After the bout, Tyson Fury shook hands with the Tribal Chief, before Reigns and Solo left. While many expected the show to go off air with Reigns on the ramp, the show continued for several more minutes.
During the final minutes of the show, Tyson Fury and Drew McIntyre sang a few songs to send the Principality Stadium crowd home happy.
Per Freddie Prinze Jr on his ‘Wrestling with Freddie’ podcast, several sources confirmed to him that the show was actually meant to go off the air before the singing session, with the final segment originally intended to be a special treat for fans in attendance.
Noting that WWE ultimately left the feed running, Prinze said:
“The end of the match was weird because they forgot to say cut, I know this for a fact. I asked a couple of people. They left the feed running and all of a sudden Drew McIntyre was feeling good, Tyson Fury came out to the ring, and they sang ‘Sweet Caroline’ after a loss. It was so weird.”
During the post show press conference, Tyson Fury noted that he’s open to working with WWE in the future, but is currently focusing on boxing.
McIntyre has commented on the possibility of a match against Fury, following recent teases.
