Many fans were surprised to see Roman Reigns retain the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship over Drew McIntyre in the main event of the Clash at the Castle event, the first major PPV event in the UK since 1992, as the show had been built around McIntyre.

Heading into the show there was a report that WWE was considering taking at least one of Roman’s titles off him, but that didn’t end up happening.

It was previously reported after the show that WWE stayed with its long-term plan with Reigns as a top guy and champion instead of going for the big pop that McIntyre would've received from the fans in attendance.

WrestleVotes told GiveMeSport that there was a ‘convoluted’ idea for McIntyre to win one of the belts (WWE Title or Universal Championship) at the show.

“The only thing they could think of was with Austin Theory. He was going to somehow make it known that he was only cashing in for one of the belts. Therefore, it became a triple threat, and Tyson Fury stopped him like he did, and Drew would then would take one of the titles. For whatever reason, that didn’t work, and it sounds really convoluted. I don’t know how you’re gonna pull it off on TV.”

Reigns most recently retained his Undisputed WWE Universal Title over Logan Paul at Crown Jewel and is advertised for Survivor Series on November 26th.
