    I'm more emotionally invested in the growth of grass in my lawn than these two matches but the rubber match of Owens vs Cena & Rollins vs. Lesnar should be great. Reigns vs. Wyatt could be a good hard hitting match or could suck, hard to know.

    To be honest I would stay up just to see Rollins vs Lesnar again. I guess this will be another PPV with a member of the Shield in the Main Event and no Cena.

    Meltzer expects these two fresh matches at Battleground:
    Randy Orton vs. Sheamus and Nikki Bella vs. Paige are likely to be added to Battleground. Nikki vs. Paige was on the books for the show as recently as a week ago.

    Ok I am lying about the fresh part. :p

    Ok now that sounds like it wont be worth staying up for. Apart from Brock at the moment there is not too much excitement on that show (that I can discuss before the show)

    Brock vs Rollins is something pretty fresh and it will be interesting to see what happens.

    Cena vs Owens will be a great match. We know that because we've seen it twice already in recent times, but that means the law of diminishing returns kicks in. There's also the issue of do they actually let Owens go over, how clean does he go over, and if he goes over, do they let Cena move on from the feud clean (something they never really do).

    Speaking of diminishing returns, Orton vs Sheamus will test how fast the fast forward function can go....

    Ryback/Owens/Show is an unknown. Could be good, could be bad, but at least that makes it interesting.

    Paige/Bella needed a run in from the NXT Girls about a month ago at the latest, so it desperately needs to happen now.

    Wyatt vs Reigns had the crowds going wild not so long ago when it was 3 vs 3. Bet the reaction won't be as big this time round, and in many ways, that exemplifies the problems with WWE more than anything else on this card.

    And the tag titles match should be fine, but won't be special.

    While I agree that Brock vs Rollins is something pretty fresh,the build is killing it. The booking of Rollins is not what a WWE Champion should be.

    Cena vs Owens : Owens needs to go over or whats the point. Didnt like how he was booked on Raw, but hopefully its just a blip.

    Orton and Sheamo : Couldnt give a monkeys

    Ryback/Owens/Show might be watchable but my hopes arent high.

    Paige/Bella can be good but the feud is spinning its wheels. Seems its been in stall mode for a while

    I just cant invest in Wyatt and Reigns much to be honest but both need a win so it has that going for it at least.

    And it won't even be the worst match on the card, that's how lacking in depth of quality the WWE product is nowadays.

    I think you could predict Sheamus vs Orton for most PPVs and be right more often than wrong...

    Via Ryback's Twitter:
    After Raw Monday I woke up Tuesday morning before some media appearances with a severe staph infection in my right knee. I was brought to a Hospital and put on strong antibiotics and had 90 cc of fluid drained out of knee in a 24 hour period. We caught it in time thanks to the Great WWE medical team and I will make a full recovery. Will be kept in the hospital for several days and I will not be able to defend my Intercontinental Championship this Sunday. I am sorry to all my fans and the WWE. I will be back shortly, but I have to get this corrected.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,820 ✭✭✭grames_bond


    wonder if the "King vs King" match will be bumped to the main card or will we get a different replacement match.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,018 ✭✭✭The Ayatolla


    Rumours of an Undertaker return, possibly leaked to boost subscribers ahead of Summerslam.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,949 ✭✭✭A Primal Nut


    Surely either Cesaro or Rusev have to cost Owens; after what he did to them?


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,753 ✭✭✭✭beakerjoe


    History tells us, Cena will win clean

    I home Im wrong

    Don't wanna put a downer on anyone's day but this frees up big show to interfere on the main event as an authority member doesn't it? :(

    I presume the end of Raw this week was to write Kane out tbh. He won't be there, or at least capable of interfering.

    Following Ryback’s forced withdrawal from Battleground earlier this week with a staph infection, WWE has announced that the entire Intercontinental Title match has been pulled from WWE Battleground.

    Ryback had been initially been set to defend against Big Show and Miz, and while the graphic had been pulled from the Battleground page of WWE.com, there had been no confirmation about final plans for the match until now.

    A Divas match was never announced either.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 23,089 ✭✭✭✭rovert


    WWE NXT Women's champion Sasha Banks, Charlotte and Becky Lynch were all brought into St. Louis for the WWE Battleground PPV, so it appears they may be involved in a segment on the show. With the Intercontinental championship bout pulled from the show due to Ryback's injury, WWE certainly has time to fill on the show.

    Interesting to note that WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair is also in town for the PPV.

    Bexleground!!!!!!

    The Miz Vs. Big Show could still happen Source


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 23,089 ✭✭✭✭rovert


    Charlotte vs. Brie Bella vs. Sasha Banks will take place on tonight's WWE Battleground PPV, PWInsider.com has learned.

    So Brie is jobbing.
