The dream of Drew McIntyre capturing the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in front of his countrymen at long-awaited Clash at the Castle 2024 in Glasgow was broken. Damian Priest won it for the main event of the evening, but not without its share of controversy.

Legitimacy to the match was hampered by the instance of CM Punk coming out as the replacement referee, who deliberately stopped the count against McIntyre. Although the event did not give McIntyre a victory by any means, it was an incredibly memorable weekend for the Scottish wrestler that has been vividly captured on WWE's newly released vlog.

Available on the company's YouTube channel, the video offers fans extra-special access to an exclusive peek into McIntyre's emotional journey through the event-filled weekend.

Drew McIntyre's Memorable Moments

In the lead-up to that, it goes through several key moments, like McIntyre messing around during a face-off with Priest at the kick-off and a meet-and-greet with fans—through which his warmth and charisma shine.

The wrestler also reunited with UFC fi.ghter Paul Craig, and that one was emotional, athletic mateship in action. It also came with a little bit of a local touch, meaning McIntyre was treated to a bespoke version of Scotland's favorite beverage, Irn-Bru, endearingly rebranded as "Irn-Drew." McIntyre was his usual sharp wit when asked if he would celebrate with the iconic beverage in case of a win, showing a solid connection to Scottish culture.

According to the vlog, the emotional stakes for McIntyre going into the match were high. His wife could not be in attendance since she had to have an emergency surgery, so that created a layer of personal challenge on top of the professional.

Additionally, bringing his family and friends out in the audience added to the situation that brought forth CM Punk's interference, leaving them and viewers angrily furious over the result. The result was disappointing, but so too was the vlog of a defiant CM Punk, boasting about his versatility and prowess, including his controversial stint as a referee.

In any case, this certainly opens another chapter in that storied rivalry and secures that Clash at the Castle's aftermath will not be going anywhere anytime soon from WWE narratives.
