Results by: Matt Boone, rajah.com reporter

The Countdown To WWE Clash At The Castle: Scotland pre-show is now officially underway, as the stream is live on the WWE Network on Peacock, WWE’s YouTube channel, as well as the other WWE social and digital media channels.

A live shot of Glasgow is shown, settling inside the OVO Hydro where Michael Cole welcomes us to the pre-show for today’s premium live event in Scotland. Cole introduces his fellow pre-show panelists Big E. and Kevin Owens. They send things over to Jackie Redmond, who checks in from the backstage area.

The panelists begin running down the card for today’s big show. They send it back to Redmond for part one of her extensive sit-down interview with Drew McIntyre ahead of his WWE World Heavyweight Championship opportunity against Damian Priest of The Judgment Day.

After checking in with the panelists for their thoughts on part one of Redmond’s sit-down interview with McIntyre, they send it to Cathy Kelley, who is standing backstage live with Chad Gable and the Alpha Academy. Gable brushes off questions about Maxxine Dupri’s ankle injury and assures everyone that he’s got Alpha Academy in-line for today.

He then realizes Akira Tozawa isn’t with them, so they head off to look for him. The road to Gable vs. Sami Zayn for the WWE Intercontinental Championship is shown in the form of an elaborate pre-match video package. Bayley is interviewed live backstage, and in a throwback moment, has some heel-style fun taunting Michael Cole.

Chelsea Green joins Cole, Big E. and Owens at the pre-show panel for some of her typical heel nonsense, as well as her thoughts on the WWE Women’s Championship match and how Piper Niven is going to beat Bayley to capture the title today in front of her hometown fans.

Green leaves to a rude send-off by Cole, and then a “Rowdy” Roddy Piper video package airs to show the ties to Scotland that the late, great WWE Hall of Fame legend had. Peter Rosenberg narrates the piece, which was really good, as is anything involved highlights of legendary “Hot Rod” moments.

The second part of Jackie Redmond’s sit-down, one-on-one interview with “The Scottish Warrior” Drew McIntyre is shown. When this wraps up, we return to the panelists, who set up some more pre-match video packages before ultimately wrapping up the two-hour long “Countdown To WWE Clash At The Castle: Scotland” pre-show.

WWE Universal Championship (I Quit Match)
Cody Rhodes (C) vs. AJ Styles

From there, the “WWE Then. Now. Forever. Together.” opening signature flashes across the screen again. We shoot to a live aerial shot of Glasgow, Scotland as Michael Cole welcomes us to the premium live event portion of today’s show. We see various talent arriving to the OVO Hydro as crowd reactions are heard in the background.

We then shoot to the elaborate cold open video package for today’s international PLE. When it wraps up, we return inside the OVO Hydro again as the crowd roars as we get ready for our opening contest. The new “You don’t want none!” theme song for AJ Styles hits and out comes “The Phenomenal” one for the scheduled “I Quit” match for the WWE Universal Championship.

As Styles settles inside the squared circle, the camera pans over to the commentary table for the first time today. Michael Cole introduces his co-commentary team for today’s show, which includes Corey Graves and Wade Barrett. Styles’ theme wraps up and the familiar sounds of Cody Rhodes’ entrance tune plays next.

The crowd in Glasgow goes bonkers as “The American Nightmare” emerges. Every single fan in the OVO Hydro knows every single word of the catchy theme song for the reigning and defending WWE Universal Champion, and they are all singing along with it as loud as they possibly can as the champ heads to the ring for his latest title defense.

When he reaches the ringside area, Rhodes hugs his mom, who made the trip overseas and is sitting front row for this special event. Rhodes’ music dies down and fades off, but the crowd continues singing even louder, in clear-to-hear fashion, every word of the popular tune. Samantha Irvin handles the final formal pre-match ring introductions and then the bell sounds to get this “I Quit” title tilt officially off-and-running.

The match official brings the champ and challenger to the middle of the ring for final pre-match instructions, the same way UFC does for their big fights. The fans start up a loud Cody Rhodes chant, but they sing the name like a lot of international crowds are known to do. “There’s only one Ricky Hatton!” feel to it. Styles jumps into the early offensive lead.

Now the Scottish crowd breaks out into a song of some kind that they all seem to know the words to, another international crowd regularity. Cody fights back and comes off the ropes with a big drop kick that sends Styles flying out to the floor. The ref gets the mic in Styles’ face to see if he quits. He does not. Cody goes under the ring for something, prompting a roar from the Glasgow crowd.

A “Table! Table! Table!” chant breaks out, and as expected, Cody obliges by pulling one out and setting it up. He then whips Styles knee-first into the steel ring steps. The ref checks in with Styles once more, and once again Styles refuses to quit yet. Cody throws AJ into the crowd, jumps up on top of the ringside barricade and tight-rope walks it before leaping and splashing onto Styles.

The two continue to make their way deep into the crowd as they trade shots along the way. They keep fighting and moving, and end up in the backstage area. Cody slams AJ’s face into the brick wall with authority. He yells at him to “say it!” Styles fights back as the two reach the familiar-looking Gorilla position area briefly, before passing through the curtain and fighting down the entrance aisle as fans start singing Cody’s name again.

Styles starts to fight back as the two re-enter the squared circle, and a loud “AJ sucks!” chant spreads throughout the OVO Hydro. Cody gets Styles in a figure-four leg lock and cranks back on it. The referee gets the mic and asks Styles if he quits, but of course, “The Phenomenal” one does not. Styles eventually makes it to the ropes and escapes the hold. Styles sells the leg as Cody goes back to work on him.

“The Phenomenal” one starts to take back over control of the offense, and busts open Cody in the process. With blood pouring out of Rhodes’ dome, the ref grabs the mic and asks if Rhodes quits. Rhodes says “Absolutely not!” Styles gets a belt and whips Cody with it before wrapping it around his throat and choking him. Styles drops down and puts an STF on a bloody Cody. The ref checks on Cody, who refuses to quit.

Although he refuses to quit, Styles continues to crank back harder and harder. The camera pans over to show Cody’s mom sitting in the front row looking nervous. Styles ends up choking Cody unconscious. He lets go of the hold and yells at the ref that he’s out. The ref points out to Styles that the match doesn’t end that way and he must get Cody to say the words, “I quit.”

The commentators point out that Styles would’ve won right there if this were a regular match. Styles heads out to the ringside area for some goodies. He comes back into the ring with a sack full of something and some handcuffs. He cuffs Cody’s hands behind his back. He gets a kendo stick and beats the living crap out of Cody while Cody is defenseless with his hands cuffed behind him. Cody still won’t quit.

Styles exits the ring and heads over to where Cody’s mother Michelle is sitting. He gets in her face, but she ends up slapping him. Styles turns around and angrily grabs a steel chair. He heads back in Michelle’s direction as Cole yells at him loudly from the commentary desk. Back inside the ring, AJ takes out his frustrations on Cody, blasting him repeatedly with the chair.

Cody won’t quit and actually starts to fight back with his hands still cuffed behind him. Cody bumps Styles off the top-rope, where he falls down and crashes through the table that was set up on the floor earlier. While Styles is down and out on the floor, Cody gets the keys and frees himself from the handcuffs that Styles put on him. Cody starts to fight back, hitting a Cody-Cutter off the middle rope.

He plays to the crowd, which goes absolutely insane. Cody picks up a lifeless Styles and connects with a Cross Rhodes. He stares at him and then looks around to the crowd, who chant “One More Time!” He hoists a lifeless Styles up and hits him with a second Cross Rhodes. Cody pans the crowd again and they chant the same thing, so he picks Styles up and hits a third one onto a steel chair.

Now we see Cody take the handcuffs and return the favor, cuffing Styles to the ring ropes. He grabs a steel chair and blasts the crap out of the defenseless Styles repeatedly with it. The ref asks Styles if he quits. Styles says, “I…screw you, Cody Rhodes!” The crowd boos and Cody stabs the steel chair into Styles’ bread basket. Cody heads out to the floor and picks up the top-half of the steel steps. He throws them into the ring. Cody heads back into the ring and hoists the massive steel steps over his head.

Styles, still cuffed to the ropes, sees this while frantically trying to get out of the cuffs, yells, “I Quit! I Quit!” Cody wins and retains the WWE Universal Championship. Afterwards, Cody looks over at his mom and then picks up the steel steps and bashes them down over Styles’ defenseless dome anyways. The crowd sings along with Cody’s theme as Samantha Irvin handles the official post match ring announcement. Your winner and still WWE Universal Champion, Cody Rhodes. Good opening match.

After Cody exits the ring, he stops and poses with the title half way up the entrance aisle. He heads the rest of the way up and stops and turns to pose with it one final time. This time, however, Solo Sikoa ends up appearing right next to Cody. Cody notices him and the two start brawling. The Bloodline attacks from behind and helps Solo beat Cody down until Randy Orton’s theme hits and he comes out with Kevin Owens to make the save. Owens, Orton and Rhodes stand tall to wrap up the post-match scene.

Winner and STILL WWE Universal Champion: Cody Rhodes

It’s time for our third of five title matches scheduled for today’s five-match card. The theme for Chad Gable hits and out comes the leader of the Alpha Academy, accompanied by Otis and Maxxine Dupri. He settles inside the squared circle to a ton of heat from the Glasgow crowd.

The catchy-ass entrance tune for Sami Zayn hits and out comes the reigning, defending WWE Intercontinental Champion to a raucous crowd reaction. He settles in the ring and the bell sounds to get this one officially off-and-running.

Zayn and Gable milk the intense crowd atmosphere before eventually locking up to start this one off. They roll across the ropes into the corner and Sami breaks the hold.

WWE Women’s Championship
Bayley (C) vs. Piper Niven

After a backstage interview with the excited new WWE Women’s Tag-Team Champions Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn, we shoot to the elaborate pre-match video package telling the story leading up to our co-main event of the evening. The theme for Piper Niven hits and out comes the hometown gal accompanied by Chelsea Green.

She settles into the ring to a decent hometown pop from the Glasgow crowd, but nothing crazy like Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn got earlier, and certainly nothing like anytime Drew McIntyre is shown on the big screen to the live crowd inside the OVO Hydro.

The challenger settles inside the squared circle and her entrance tune dies down. The theme for her opponent, the reigning, defending WWE Women’s Champion Bayley hits. Out comes the birthday girl, who is celebrating her 35th birthday today in Glasgow. The crowd gives her essentially the same level of positive reaction as they did Niven, so before the bell, there doesn’t seem to be much of a clear-cut crowd favorite.

Samantha Irvin does the formal pre-match ring introductions for this one and after loudly and enthusiastically mentioning that Niven is from Scotland, the crowd energy in her direction grows by quite a bit. When she introduces Bayley after that, the champ actually gets a lot of boos in a mixed-bag crowd reaction. The bell sounds and we’re officially off-and-running with our second-to-last scheduled match of the show.

The fans immediately start the loud Bayley “I wanna know…” song-chant, which the champ smiles and acknowledges, something she couldn’t do during her heel days. Niven and Bayley finally start to mix it up and it is the much larger challenger who shoulder-smashes the champ down to the mat with a vicious authority. She scoops Bayley up and Donkey Kong’s her into the mat after that.

Bayley rolls out to the floor to recover, but does so near Chelsea Green, who gives her a cheap-shot smack across the face. Bayley recovers and enraged, gets ready to go after Green, only for Niven to slide out from the ring and stop her. Niven headbutts Bayley down to the floor and then returns in the ring to an insanely loud “Let’s Go Piper!” chant that spread like wildfire throughout the OVO Hydro out of nowhere.

Bayley tries fighting back, trading shots with Niven and bringing her down to one knee, however Green grabs Bayley’s boot when she went to hit the ropes. The referee catches this and Green only makes matters worse for herself by grabbing Charles Robinson by his shirt and scolding him. The ref ejects her from ringside. She loudly shrieks, “No! No!” She begrudgingly heads to the back while fans sing “Nana-nana, hey-hey-hey, goodbye!” at her.

Bayley attacks Niven from behind while she is distracted watching Green being forced to go to the back. Bayley goes for a DDT through the ropes on the apron, but Niven knocks her down to the floor. She hits a senton off the ring apron, flipping and splashing onto the champ on the floor. After some more back-and-forth action, we see Chelsea Green try and run back out under a luchador mask. It backfires, however, and Bayley capitalizes for the win to retain.

Winner and STILL WWE Women’s Champion: Bayley

WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Damian Priest (C) vs. Drew McIntyre

It’s main event time!

The World’s Strongest Man champion, Scotland’s own Tom “The Albatros” Stoltman, was shown on-camera in a brief cameo appearance in the crowd in between the WWE Women’s and WWE World Heavyweight Championship co-main events. After that, we head into the elaborate pre-match video package telling the story leading up to our final match of the evening at WWE Clash At The Castle: Scotland.

Up next will be Scotland’s own “Scottish Warrior” Drew McIntyre challenging The Judgment Day’s Damian Priest for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, in a match where Finn Balor, Dominik Mysterio & JD McDonagh of The Judgment Day have all been banned from ringside. After the package wraps up, we return inside the OVO Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland.

A famous pipe band comes out and plays Scotland The Brave, which is better known to wrestling fans as “Rowdy” Roddy Piper’s old theme music. After they march to ringside playing the iconic tune, we hear the familiar sounds of the sword-swipe and out to an absolutely insane crowd reaction is the challenger, “The Scottish Warrior” Drew McIntyre.

He looks as cool as a cucumbers before he stops and grabs a Scottish flag from a fan and out-stretches it while letting out a vicious-sounding war cry. He heads to the ring apron and turns and leans back in confident-fashion as the already super loud crowd somehow gets quite a bit louder. He enters the ring and plays to each side of the packed building full of his home country fans.

After an intense and passionate ring entrance from the hometown hero, the sounds of McIntyre’s theme music fades down and off. The crowd breaks out in an insanely loud pro-McIntyre chant. He hops on the middle rope and pounds the ring post to acknowledge it, riling up the already frenzied crowd. He yells off-mic, “C’mon ya prick!” loud enough that it’s audible on the broadcast over the insanely loud Glasgow crowd.

Now the lights go down and fire graphics erupt on the big screen above the ring and at the top of the entrance way. We hear “All Rise!” and then the theme for the reigning, defending WWE World Heavyweight Champion plays. Out comes Damian Priest to chants from the crowd of “Ohhh Drew Mc-In-Tyyyyre!” that are so loud, you literally can barely hear Priest’s music. It sounds like he’s walking to the ring to a Drew McIntyre chant.

Finally, we work our way to the finish, which sees the match referee get bumped and taken out. Moments later, McIntyre seemingly has this one wrapped up and in the books, but when he lays out Priest with his finisher and goes for the cover, a second referee runs down, which we only see from behind. He begins his count, but stops at two.

The camera shot swings around and we see it is CM Punk in a referee shirt and pants holding up two fingers at “The Scottish Warrior” with a big smile on his face. McIntyre soaks in what he is seeing and enraged, pops up to go after CM Punk, who blatantly blasts him with a low blow, which drops him to his knees. Priest follows up with a South of Heaven chokeslam for the pin fall victory to retain his WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Winner and STILL WWE World Heavyweight Champion: Damian Priest
