Battleground 2015

This is a show I thought had good buildup but as it turns out there’s only five matches now that the IC Title curse has claimed another victim. Granted I wasn’t looking forward to that match anyway. That being said this is going to be a short post, probably. This show interests me mainly because I am going to be watching it on my phone, or at least attempting to, live from work. We’ll see how it goes.

I’m not going to talk about the joke of a preshow match. And if it’s not obvious, there will be more matches on this show. There has to be. There’s only five now. A Big Show vs. Miz match to make a #1 Contender wouldn’t surprise me since Ryback has a Staph Infection and needs a Z Pack. There had better be a Divas Title match where Paige wins the belt, there’s basically no excuse for there not to be now that the NXT Divas debuted. Something has to happen, and Team Paige vs. Team Sasha isn’t a good idea because then one or two of the NXT Divas will lose. Paige vs. Nikki with everyone else at ringside is basically a must. They didn’t announce anything so this basically has to happen this way, otherwise they’d have needed to announce some kind of tag match. Now that these divas are on the main roster, and are this far from SummerSlam, there is ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSE for Nikki’s title reign to break A.J.’s. None. Zero. None at all. There wasn’t one before that, either, but there’s even less of one now.

Randy Orton vs. Sheamus
Randy Orton vs. Sheamus
Least relevant match first. What is Orton’s purpose now, really? I mean, what does he do? And why is Sheamus the MITB holder? DOES ANYONE CARE??? Why is this match happening? Why do they hate each other? What purpose does it serve?

Prediction: Randy Orton (Because reasons)

WWE World Tag Team Championship
(c) Prime Time Players (c) vs. New Day

Prime Time Players vs. New Day
Because the first match wasn’t bad enough. Why did PTP win the belts? Who even cared? Who cares about them now? Why have one of the hottest heel acts in the company lose their titles on a terrible PPV? New Day should really win, but I doubt it.

Prediction: Prime Time Players

Roman Reigns vs. Bray Wyatt
Roman Reigns vs. Bray Wyatt
They’ve done a fairly good job with this storyline, to be fair. It could be better – it could be more personal – but they’re at least trying. If they’re smart, Wyatt wins, so Roman can go over in the future and make it mean more.

Prediction: Bray Wyatt by DQ

WWE U.S. Championship
John Cena (c) vs. Kevin Owens

John Cena vs. Kevin Owens
So basically, the question is, when will Owens win the title, Battleground or SummerSlam? It’s going to happen. The question is when. If he loses here, after losing at MITB and losing the NXT Title to Balor, then doesn’t win the NXT Title back, he’s going to look pretty bad before winning at SummerSlam. But if he wins here, but doesn’t win the NXT Title back at Takeover before SummerSlam, shouldn’t Balor be #1 Contender for the U.S. Title??

Prediction: Kevin Owens

WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Seth Rollins (c) vs. Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar vs. Seth Rollins
So, Rollins is keeping the title somehow. Especially with these Undertaker rumors. Lesnar vs. Taker won’t be for a belt. But then what happens with Seth at SummerSlam? Is he still facing HHH or what?

Prediction: Seth Rollins

This should at least be an interesting show, if not a good one.
