On the latest episode of SmackDown, Drew McIntyre challenged Roman Reigns to a match for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.

The show was opened by Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods of The New Day, who are currently involved in a feud with The Brawling Brutes. They were joined by the Scottish Warrior and spoke about their match against the heelish group last week.

During his promo, Drew McIntyre stated that he will dethrone Roman Reigns for the title at Clash of the Castle. The Tribal Chief defeated Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 38 to become the first-ever Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, and he's yet to defend the title.

Reigns is currently not set to compete at Hell in a Cell, but he'll most likely put the title on the line at Clash at the Castle. The premium live event is set to take place at Cardiff's Principality Stadium on Saturday 3 September.

Drew McIntyre is one of the biggest stars in WWE history, and a match between him and Roman Reigns for the coveted title will undoubtedly be a major deal. Since the event will take place in the United Kingdom, it's the perfect place for McIntyre to capture a world title in front of the fans.
