WWE Clash At The Castle was one of the biggest events in recent memory. It was a night of solid matches and memorable moments. That didn’t help with pay-per-view buys in the end.
Clash At The Castle was WWE’s first UK stadium show since SummerSlam 1992. It took place in the Principality Stadium. Fans were excited about the event as well.
According to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the pay-per-view buy estimate is around 8,000, a significant decrease from SummerSlam.
“The estimate on U.S. PPV buys was 8,000, which doesn’t mean much since most viewers are streaming. However, it was down from 18,600 at the same point for SummerSlam and down from the 9,200 for Money In The Bank. The SummerSlam number shows just how much the name value of the big three events carry.”
This event was in the middle of the day, and Peacock was running an incredible deal for the month of September. All of that could have played into a lower number.
The main event saw Drew McIntyre unsuccessfully challenge Roman Reigns for his titles. After the match, Drew McIntyre and Tyson Fury sang with the crowd in a bizarre segment that wasn’t supposed to air in the first place.
