WWE and Duolingo team up for Clash at the Castle Welsh phrase guide

Wrestling fans flocking to Cardiff for September’s WWE Clash at the Castle have been urged to embrace the Welsh language with a specially produced phrase guide.

For one afternoon at least, Cardiff’s Principality Stadium will become the heart of the wrestling world as all eyes descend on the city for the marquee show on Saturday, 3.

It has been some 30 years since WWE last laid on a show of this magnitude on British shores – the 1992 SummerSlam spectacular that saw the legendary British Bulldog beat Bret ‘Hitman’ Hart for the Intercontinental title at London’s Wembley Stadium.

That was in front of a packed 80,000 crowd, with a likely 70,000 turnout expected this time around for what promises to be a memorable show.

In a bid to help fans immerse themselves in all things WWE and Wales for the show, the Stamford company have teamed up with Duolingo, the popular language-learning platform to create a handy guide to accompany the day.

It’s full of classic WWE phrases that will equip fans with all they need to get into the thrush of the event including 'Mae hyn yn wych!' (this is brilliant!).

Fans will, for example, hoping to hear ‘O’r newydd!’(‘and new!’) declared at the end of the night, with hopes high that Drew McIntyre can snatch the Undisputed Universal Championship from Roman Reigns in what will be the main event.

To dispose of the Head of the Table (‘Pen Teulu’) at Clash at the Castle (Clatsio yn Castell’), McIntyre will need to unleash a Claymore Kick (‘Cic Claymore’), his trusted finisher (symudiad Olaf’).

There will be plenty of other WWE Superstars (‘Siwperseren WWE’) on show – Bianca Belair teams will Alexa Bliss and Asuka to tangle with Bayley, Dakota Kai, and Iyo Sky in a six-person tag match.

Riddle meets Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins will meet Riddle in another hotly anticipated encounter, while Shayna Baszler challenges Liv Morgan for the SmackDown Women’s title.

“We hope WWE fans from across the world will embrace this guide and you’ll be hearing these fantastic words and phrases booming across the Principality Stadium on 3rd September.”
