WWE had its first show under the creative helm of Triple H following Vince McMahon’s shock retirement. The show was extremely well received by the fans, and things are looking up for the company. Fans are now looking forward to the WWE Clash at the Castle 2022 news roundup.
Many were underwhelmed when Ciampa was brought in as the Miz’s lackey. It seemed like a great waste of his talents. However, things are looking good for him if this week is any indication. Let’s take a look at the WWE news roundup for today.

Ciampa seems to be undergoing a change in direction with triple h at the helm. He won a triple threat match and then defeated AJ Styles in one night to earn a shot at Lashley’s US Title next week on RAW. Will we see a shock victory? Or will Lashley retajn his US championship?
Butch features on WWE Clash at the Castle 2022 News Roundup

Pete Dunne was rebranded as Butch with a change in character, much to the dismay of his loyal fans. He has been floundering on SmackDown for quite some time now. He was reduced to being called a ‘child with anger issues’. This was baffling to see because Dunne is one of the best wrestlers in the world, and already had a good character going for him.
With WWE’s huge PLE Clash at the Castle occuring in the UK, it will be a great moment for Dunne to be featured on the show. While this is hardly any confirmation of anything, Dunne teased the same on his social media profile:
WWE suspends Ronda Rousey following SummerSlam attack
— WWE (@WWE) August 1, 2022
Ronda Rousey flipped the switch and turned heel after she lost her SmackDown Women’s Championship to Liv Morgan at WWR SummerSlam. She ambushed Morgan, and also assaulted the referee.
It was on this week’s RAW that WWE reported that they have fined Rousey for her actions at WWE SummerSlam. It looks like WWE is slowly going to build towards Becky vs Rousey for WrestleMania 39 in Hollywood next year. Here’s hoping that the two get their long awaited singles match at WrestleMania.
