Production Background

The event took place at the OVO Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland. In September 2022, WWE held an event called Clash at the Castle in Cardiff, Wales, referencing the nearby Cardiff Castle. This was WWE’s first major UK pay-per-view (PPV) and livestreaming event since 2003’s Insurrextion and the first in a UK stadium since SummerSlam 1992.

On April 1, 2024, during an episode of Monday Night Raw, WWE announced a second Clash at the Castle for June 15, 2024. The next day, the location was confirmed as the OVO Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland, and the event was titled Clash at the Castle: Scotland. This marked WWE’s first PPV and livestreaming event in Scotland and established Clash at the Castle as a recurring UK event. It was broadcasted on PPV worldwide, on Peacock in the United States, and the WWE Network internationally. The event featured wrestlers from both the Raw and SmackDown brands. The preceding night’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown was also held at the same venue. Tickets went on sale on April 26, with combo packages available.

Storylines

The event included five matches, all stemming from scripted storylines, with outcomes predetermined by WWE’s writers. The storylines were developed on WWE’s weekly television shows, Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown.

Drew McIntyre vs. Damian Priest

At WrestleMania XL on April 7, Drew McIntyre won the World Heavyweight Championship and taunted special guest commentator CM Punk, who attacked him. Subsequently, Damian Priest of The Judgment Day cashed in his Money in the Bank contract on McIntyre, winning the title. On May 13, Priest agreed to give McIntyre a rematch once he recovered from an elbow injury. On May 25, at King and Queen of the Ring, WWE’s Chief Content Officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque announced that McIntyre was medically cleared and would challenge Priest at Clash at the Castle: Scotland. On the final Raw before the event, McIntyre defeated Finn Bálor, ensuring The Judgment Day members would be banned from ringside during his championship match.

Bayley vs. Piper Niven

On May 10’s SmackDown, Chelsea Green and Piper Niven expressed displeasure after WWE Women’s Champion Bayley praised Jade Cargill in the Queen of the Ring tournament. Niven lost to Cargill that night. Green and Niven continued provoking Bayley, leading to a non-title match on May 24, which Bayley won. On the next episode, Green and Niven attacked Bayley and later defeated her in a tag team match. Bayley was then scheduled to defend her title against Niven at Clash at the Castle: Scotland.

Sami Zayn vs. Chad Gable

Since mid-April, Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn had been feuding with Alpha Academy’s Chad Gable. After losing the title match to Zayn, Gable attacked him and began humiliating his stablemates. At King and Queen of the Ring, Zayn retained his title in a triple threat match involving Gable, who was accidentally hit by Otis. On May 27, after Otis lost a match, Gable threatened to discipline him but was interrupted by Zayn, leading to a brawl. Zayn later accepted Gable’s challenge for another championship match at Clash at the Castle: Scotland.

Cody Rhodes vs. AJ Styles

At Backlash France, Cody Rhodes defeated AJ Styles to retain the Undisputed WWE Championship. On May 24’s SmackDown, Styles requested another title match, citing limited time left in his career, but was declined by General Manager Nick Aldis. The following week, Styles appeared to announce his retirement but then attacked Rhodes. Rhodes accepted Styles’s challenge for an “I Quit” match at Clash at the Castle: Scotland, which Aldis made official.

Women's Tag Team Championship Match

On May 20’s Raw, Shayna Baszler and Zoey Stark won a fatal four-way tag team match to become number one contenders for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship held by Bianca Belair and Jade Cargill. The Unholy Union (Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn) mocked Baszler and Stark, leading to a title match that ended in a disqualification win for Belair and Cargill due to interference. On SmackDown, a brawl ensued between the three teams, resulting in Belair and Cargill announcing a triple threat tag team match for the Women’s Tag Team Championship at Clash at the Castle: Scotland.

Event

The first televised match of the night featured Cody Rhodes facing AJ Styles in an intense I Quit match for the Undisputed WWE Championship. Cody Rhodes started strong, delivering a series of strikes. However, Styles countered a Disaster Kick with an Atomic Drop. The match escalated when Styles taunted Cody’s mother, Michelle Rhodes, who was in the crowd, prompting her to slap Styles. Rhodes responded by executing a Cutter followed by three Cross Rhodes. He then handcuffed Styles to the turnbuckle and picked up the steel steps, moving toward Styles. In desperation, Styles screamed “I quit,” allowing Rhodes to retain the championship. Post-match, Rhodes struck Styles with the steel steps. Solo Sikoa and The Bloodline attacked Rhodes, but Randy Orton and Kevin Owens intervened, driving off The Bloodline.

Triple Threat Tag Team Match

The second match was a triple threat tag team bout for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship. Bianca Belair and Jade Cargill teamed up and performed a DDT/Wheelbarrow Suplex combination on Shayna Baszler. Isla Dawn then pinned Baszler, securing the victory and the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship.

The third match of the night saw Chad Gable challenging Sami Zayn for the WWE Intercontinental Championship. Gable applied an Ankle Lock on Zayn and inadvertently chop-blocked Maxxine Dupri, who was at ringside with an injured leg. Otis, Gable’s ally, picked up Dupri and walked away, refusing to assist Gable. Zayn took advantage of the distraction, connecting with the Helluva Kick to win the match and retain the Intercontinental Championship.

The next match was for the WWE Women’s Championship, featuring Bayley against Piper Niven. Chelsea Green, at ringside, tripped Bayley, who retaliated by stepping on Green’s fingers. This led to Green being ejected from ringside by the referee. Green returned in a luchador mask to distract the referee, allowing Niven to headbutt Bayley. However, Bayley managed to plant Niven with a Crucifix Driver, securing the victory and retaining the WWE Women’s Championship. This win also earned Bayley the right to challenge Queen of the Ring Nia Jax for the title at SummerSlam.

Main Event

The main event featured Damian Priest defending his World Heavyweight Championship against Drew McIntyre. During the match, the referee was knocked out, allowing McIntyre to pin Priest until a second referee arrived and counted two. This new referee was revealed to be CM Punk, who delivered a low blow to McIntyre. Priest capitalized with a South of Heaven chokeslam on McIntyre for the three count. After the match, CM Punk celebrated with the crowd.
