A
new
WWE
Intercontinental
Championship
match
featuring
two
United
Kingdom
natives
has
been
confirmed
for
Clash
At
The
Castle
PPV.

The
reigning
IC
Champion
Gunther
will
defend
his
title
against
top
Smackdown
superstar
Sheamus
in
a
fresh
lineup
which
is
interesting
given
both
these
names
are
heels
on
the
WWE
roster.

The
latest
episode
of
Smackdown
featured
a
Fatal-5-Way
Number-One
Contenders
match
for
the
IC
title.
Apart
from
Sheamus,
Happy
Corbin,
Ricochet,
Madcap
Moss,
and
Sami
Zayn
were
the
rest
of
the
four
superstars.

The
finish
saw
Corbin
launching
Sami
shoulder-first
into
the
ring
post
but
Sheamus
came
from
behind
and
leveled
him
with
a
Brogue
Kick
to
secure
a
clean
pin-fall
win
and
earn
an
opportunity
for
the
mid-card
title
of
WWE.

It
should
be
noted
that
Sheamus
will
become
WWE’s
27th
Grand
Slam
Champion
if
he
can
win
the
IC
title
at
the
upcoming
PLE.
This
is
the
only
title
that
he
never
won
in
his
entire
WWE
career.
The
last
belt
he
held
in
WWE
was
the
United
States
Title
in
2021.

WWE

2022
premium

takes
place
at
the

in
Cardiff,

In
more
updates
from
this
week’s
Smackdown,
WWE
made
a
change
to
the
Women’s
Tag
Team
Title
tournament.
NXT
stars
Gigi
Dolin
and
Jacy
Jayne
of
Toxic
Attraction
replaced
Nikkita
Lyons
and
Zoey
Stark
in
the
first-round
match
against
Natalya
and
Sonya
Deville.

WWE
Hall
of
Famer
Shawn
Michaels
appeared
in
a
pre-taped
promo
to
inform
us
that
Stark
sustained
an
injury
at
this
past
Tuesday’s
NXT
Heatwave
event
and
was
thus
unable
to
compete.

Then
Gigi
Dolin
and
Jacy
Jayne
defeated
Natalya
and
Sonya
Deville
in
the
opening
match
of
Smackdown
to
advance
to
the
next
round
of
the
Women’s
Tag
Team
Championship
Tournament.

Natalya
almost
got
the
win
by
applying
the
Sharpshooter
on
Dolin
but
the
legal
Jayne
came
from
behind
and
rolled
Nattie
up
to
secure
the
pin-fall
win.
Now,
they
will
face
Raquel
Gonzalez
and
Aliyah
in
the
semifinal
match,
next
week
on
Smackdown.

WWE
Women’s
Tag
Team
Tournament
will
also
continue
on
Raw,
this
Monday
when
the
team
of
Asuka
and
Alexa
Bliss
take
on
Dakota
Kai
and
Iyo
SKY
in
the
first
semifinal
match
to
determine
one
of
the
finalists.
