Are you hungry? If you’re craving hot dogs this July Fourth, check out the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest. Every year on July 4, the best competitive eaters in the world flock to Coney Island near Brooklyn, New York, to inhale hot dogs at a lightning pace. Besides bragging rights, the male winner wins a mustard-yellow belt, and the female winner earns a pink belt.

In news that shook the competitive eating world to its core, 16-time champion Joey Chestnut will not compete in this year’s contest. Because of his sponsorship deal with Impossible Foods, Chestnut has been banned from the 2024 competition. Chestnut had won eight straight competitions dating back to 2016. Miki Sudo is the two-time defending champion for females.

How to watch WWE Clash at the Castle 2024: start time, live stream, matches
WWE wrestlers pose on the poster for Clash at the Castle.

This weekend marks a first for the WWE. Clash at the Castle 2024 is the first Premium Live Event (PLE) to run in Scotland. The trip to Scotland is part of WWE's continued effort to host events in international territories. The last two PLEs were in Saudi Arabia and France, and the next PLE will take place in Canada.

Drew McIntyre, a Scottish native, headlines this monumental card. McIntyre won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 40, but the title reign only lasted a few minutes. CM Punk distracted McIntyre long enough for Damia Priest to cash in his Money in the Bank contract and win the title. Now, McIntyre gets his rematch with Priest in front of his home crowd. Will it be a storybook ending for McIntyre?
