King Barrett vs R-Truth
I do not care at all about this match, it’s a ‘feud’ that has dragged on way too long. And it’s for the King of the Ring crown? Come on. You’re making all previous King of the Ring winners look stupid.
Roman Reigns vs Bray Wyatt
I’m also not really looking forward to this! I’ve never really been a fan of Bray Wyatt in the ring before. The build up has been okay. It’s nice to see a Wyatt promo which is a little bit personalised to his current feud. Both superstars need the win really though, but I think Reigns will go over. I’m hoping we get to see a rematch of the triple threat from WrestleMania at Summerslam so this feud will end! I don’t really know what’s next for Wyatt – but he needs his family back! Either that, or put him and Bo Dallas into the tag team scene.
Randy Orton vs Sheamus
This feud hasn’t really got anything behind it. It seems they had a match on Raw which got some fans talking, and so they chucked it in a feud. It’ll be a really good wrestling match, no doubt with two of the best wrestlers on the roster. The feud hasn’t been that great, and so I hope this is just to kill some time at Battleground, and no more. WWE make the money in the bank holder look bad it seems during the time they have the briefcase, so I think Orton will win this.
The Miz vs The Big Show vs Ryback
Ryback has had to pull out of this one due to injury. It’s mad to think the IC title has only been defended twice since WrestleMania, and it’s just due to injury. There seems to be a curse around the title! With this match not on the card anymore, there’s going to be a lot of time to kill, so it’ll be interesting to see what they do with the added time.
There’s been no official time slot for the divas that we know about. With the awesome segment they had on Raw, they’ll have to follow it up with something here tonight. It will most likely be Brie and Nikki having a backstage promo on their take of the ongoings of Raw. I do find it very weird that they don’t have a match though.
New Day vs Prime Time Players for the WWE Tag Team Championships
After WrestleMania, the tag team division looked very deep, but all of a sudden, it’s looking very slim again. Tyson Kidd and Cesaro seem to be no more after Kidd’s injury, and The Usos are out too with an injury. These two are the only tag teams we’ve seen the past few weeks. They need to somehow get Erick Rowan and Luke Harper in now, to tear up the division.
If we were to see them come in, they’d be the heels, and so it would only work with a face team with the Prime Time Players. I’m not too sure what will happen to The New Day, but they don’t seem to be as magic as they were two months ago. I want Prime Time Players to regain the titles, to start their new feud.
Kevin Owens vs John Cena for the United States Championship
WWE were very clever by having Owens drop the NXT title to Balor, because it plants the seed that we’ll see Owens win his first main roster title. However, I’m not too sure they’ll put it on him just yet. It just seems too soon, and it would make more sense to push the next big thing with a title win at a bigger PPV (Summerslam).
From there, I wonder if Cena will go back into the main event when he does lose at Summerslam. Vince McMahon will clearly have him take the world title again, just to beat Ric Flair’s record. Owens will be just fine in making the US title look the part.
Brock Lesnar vs Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship
I think we were all surprised to see Brock Lesnar at Battleground. We all thought he’d be back at Summerslam, but he’s a little earlier! I have a very bad feeling about this match though.. I can tell that they’ll spend the first 15 minutes just having Seth Rollins running away from Lesnar, before the beast finally gets his offence going. The match will there on be Brock dominating, so I’m not really looking forward to it. I’ve never really been a fan of Lesnar’s matches because of the way he’s put across.
I think Seth will come away with the title, but it will not be a clean victory. Lesnar has barely lost cleanly in his whole WWE career, and so they won’t have him lose to a guy who is portrayed as a weasel. There’s been some talk of Taker returning, as he is booked on Raw, but I’m not too sure. I’m hoping for Rollins vs Lesnar vs Reigns at Summerslam!
