The Completely Correct, 100 Percent Accurate WWE Clash At The Castle Predictions

Slap on your tights and ring the bell, it's time for another weekend of heart-stopping action inside the squared circle! For the first time in WWE history, Scotland is getting its very own premium live event with WWE Clash at the Castle. And ahead of all the excitement and in-ring drama, you know I have to submit my predictions so that you may marvel at my match-guessing mastery. https://twitter.com/WWE/status/1794447999340630243 Who Will Say "I Quit"? Tensions have been brewing for weeks between WWE Champion Cody Rhodes and his latest challenger AJ Styles. After Styles duped Rhodes during his fake retirement promo on SmackDown, the Phenomenal One has proven that there is no depth he won't stoop to in pursuit of the title. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QXXU6LreTM However, it's possible AJ's actions may have opened Pandora's box heading into Clash. Cody Rhodes has so far proven to be a fundamentally good, morally upright champion. But even the best of men have limits before the gloves come off, which is what compelled Rhodes to make their championship rematch an "I Quit" match, where the only way to win is to make your opponent utter those two humiliating words. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39BUPGMTyRE Will the American Nightmare make AJ say the words he should've said weeks ago? Or will the Phenomenal One finally reclaim the championship he hasn't held in almost six years? McIntyre's Homecoming As thrilling as the Rhodes/Styles rematch is sure to be, the match with perhaps the most intrigue going into this weekend is the World Heavyweight Championship contest between reigning champ Damian Priest, and the Scottish Warrior Drew McIntyre. As a Scotland native, Drew has the distinct advantage of walking into Clash this weekend as the hometown favorite. McIntyre may have fallen out of favor with a lot of WWE fans stateside given his constant antagonizing of fan favorite CM Punk, but he'll almost certainly be heralded as a hero amongst his fellow Scots. While McIntyre is entering WWE Clash at the Castle on a wave of momentum, El Campeon Damian Priest seems to be on uneven footing as the defending champion. For weeks Priest has sought to prove that he is a worthy champion who doesn't always need to rely on his Judgment Day cohorts to help him defend his title, but Finn Balor, "Dirty" Dominik Mysterio and JD McDonagh seem to have little faith in his ability. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vGK90XqvNoE This past Monday night on Raw, McIntyre faced Balor in a match with the stipulation that, if McIntyre won, the Judgment Day would be banned from ringside during the title match at Clash. Drew managed to beat Finn, thereby excising Damian's fiendish friends from ringside ahead of their match on Saturday. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5C4wZoOC3F0 With the playing field now (seemingly) leveled, will Drew McIntyre walk out of Glasgow with his hand raised in victory? Or will El Campeon thwart his latest challenger for the gold? My WWE Clash at the Castle Predictions I'll admit, my predictions for WWE's last big event, King and Queen of the Ring, weren't quite as foolproof as I thought. But I have recalibrated the numbers, I have reconfigured my mental algorithm, and I believe I can without a doubt reach prediction perfection this weekend. Without further ado, here are my picks for WWE Clash at the Castle!
