The WWE Universe exploded as Roman Reigns, and Drew McIntyre locked horns in the lead-up to their bout at Clash at the Castle.

The Head of The Table and The Scottish Warrior exchanged some heated words before a brawl broke out on SmackDown. However, the showdown soon descended into chaos as the two men started throwing hands at each other.

In the brawl that ensued, Drew McIntyre lined up the champ for a Claymore, but "Honorary Uce" Sami Zayn stepped in and pushed away the Tribal Chief. This led to Sami taking the full impact of another Claymore.

Roman used the distraction to his advantage as he managed to get in a Superman Punch. He was preparing to hit the Spear but Drew planted him with a devastating Claymore. The Scottish Warrior then held both titles over the fallen Head of the Table.

Fans took to social media to share their reactions to this epic brawl to close out the 1200th episode of SmackDown.
