- Roman Reigns defeated Drew McIntyre in the main event of a live event
- Reigns had been away from live events before the Sacramento event
- He is scheduled to defend his titles against Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam 2022
Reigns and McIntyre have squared off in live events in the past few months and it was yet another occasion of the Head of the Table defeating his opponent. McIntyre is likely to challenge Reigns for the two titles at Clash at the Castle, which takes place in the UK in September.
McIntyre could have punched his ticket to the main event on this week’s Smackdown but his match against Sheamus didn’t take place. Despite this, he looks favourite to get the title opportunity.
SummerSlam 2022 is scheduled to take place on July 30 at Nissan Stadium in Nashville. Both the superstars are likely to be part of Clash at the Castle as McIntyre hails from Scotland while Sheamus is Irish.
