Battleground Battleground Matchcard Rumors/Predictions

Discussion in 'PPV's & Specials' started by Solidus, Jun 21, 2015.

  1. WWE Forums is giving away a copy of WWE 2K18 for any platform! More info: WWE 2K18 Giveaway (PS4, Xbox One, Steam)
  1. So we've already got Rollins/Lesnar and Reigns/Wyatt, but what are the remaining 4-5 matches?
    Any rumors or predictions you guys have?
    I'm thinking we'll have a tag team battle royal of sorts, other than that I'm not sure.
  2. First off... No Kane on the show, please!

    - Miz vs Big Show vs Ryback for the IC title. - Ryback retains. (Or they might do Ryback vs Miz now at BL and then have Show interfere in Miz's match and cost him the title, which would lead to a big triple-threat at SummerSlam where Da Big Guy retains)

    - Cena vs KO for the US title - KO wins to make up for losing to Cena at MITB and for his upcoming loss (for the NXT title) to Bálor in Japan.

    - The PTP vs The New Day or it may be some triple-threat/fatal four-way for the title. The PTP retain, I believe (although The New Day regaining would be swell). And hopefully they lose the titles to Harper & Rowan at SummerSlam.

    - Orton vs Sheamus or Ambrose vs Sheamus. Whoever Sheamus faces, he should win, I guess.

    - DZ vs Bo Dallas, perhaps.

    That's all I've got for now.

    Looking at what they're doing... They teased Kane vs Ambrose, Ryback vs Big Show vs Miz, Paige and Charlotte vs the Bellas, we all know Cena won't be selling a powerbomb that long...

    They're gonna have to pull something out of their ass with this show (even though it's Battleground) because that is... no.

    I hope that they can find a way to do the finish to Big Show/Ryback/Miz well. Like, Miz takes a whole minute taking off his coat-thing and Ryback runs through all his moves and pins Show while he's doing it. :dawg:

  4. John Cena vs Kevin Owens for the United States Title
    Ryback vs Big Show vs The Miz for the Intercontinental Title
    Prime Time Players vs The New Day (all three members) for the Tag Team Titles
    Randy Orton vs Sheamus
    Dean Ambrose vs Kane
    Some snoozefest involving the Divas

    And now for my predictions on how each of these proposed matches will turn out:

    1. I predict a no contest between Cena and Owens that leads to a fourth and final encounter at Summerslam with a stipulation attached to it (most likely a Last Man Standing match)... That's my standard assumption on how they'll go about booking the rest of this rivalry and it also happens to be the rumor making the rounds at the moment, too.

    2. Ryback will retain the IC Title and then defend it against either The Miz or Big Show in a singles match at Summerslam (likely Big Show since he's a much more formidable opponent than The Miz, and he and Ryback's singles encounter at Battleground never got a proper finish.)

    3. Hopefully The New Day regain the Tag Team Championships. They're a newer (and for the moment, a much more entertaining) act than the Prime Time Players are. PTP supposedly only won the titles to capitalize on the fact that Titus won "Celebrity Dad Of The Year", and now that whatever good publicity they failed to get out of that is out of the way...

    4. This will probably be good since going by memory, Orton and Sheamus usually have good matches despite having almost no chemistry with one another as characters. Orton will probably win this one since they always tend to job out the person holding the MITB briefcase under the credence that any losses they suffer will immediately be invalidated the second they cash in and become champion.

    5. Ambrose wins. Kane is hardly the "Big Red Monster" anymore, and let's at least pretend Ambrose just came out of a world title program where he had the title won fairly in the first match and just barely let it slip out of his grasp in the second one.

    6. Who cares.
  5. John Cena vs. Kevin Owens for The U.S Title: Either it ends in a no-contest/dq, or Owens picks up the win. A rematch at SummerSlam will happen either way.
    The Prime Time Players vs. The New Day for The Tag Team Titles: The PTP retains.
    Neville vs. The leftover New Day member: Neville wins. (KickOff match)
    R-Truth vs. King Barrett: Barrett wins.
    The Bellas vs. Paige & Charlotte: Paige & Charlotte win.
    Dolph Ziggler vs. Rusev: DQ/no contest, or Rusev wins dirty. Rematch at SummerSlam. (Depends if Rusev is good to go)
    Ryback vs. The Big Show vs. The Miz for The IC Title: Ryback retains.
    Dean Ambrose vs. Kane: Ambrose destroys Kane.
    Randy Orton vs. Sheamus: Sheamus wins.
    Roman Reigns vs. Bray Wyatt: Roman destroys Wyatt.
    Seth Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar for The WWEWHC: Lesnar wins.

    I doubt the PPV will have that many matches, but I expect a combination of the sort.
  6. I'm diggin' this. Spot on.

    It'd be even better to have Cena/KO end in a no contest and then have KO defeat Cena for the title at SummerSlam, considering Cena has a losing streak at SummerSlam... It'd be great!
  7. Someone bet me on the Wyatt vs Reigns match, please. @Snowman here is your big chance.
  8. aww nah, hell naw
  9. I've got Wyatt bro.
  10. call me whenever there's another nxt divas tag, we can bet on that
  11. I don't even know what is going on there, and I don't care. We both know who the real women's champion of wrestling is.
  12. Do you think Wyatt could pull off the win with the help of Harper and Rowan, thus reuniting the family?
    I mean, it wouldn't surprise me.

    Snowman and I had already discussed this. This is exactly what I proposed to him, Harper and Rowan help Bray, Bray wins and perhaps that win could get him back on track.

    On the other hand, it may hurt Reigns, because Wyatt hasn't been on a winning streak lately.
    And if they want Reigns in the ME of SummerSlam, Wyatt's gonna be his bitch at Battleground.
  13. I have a gut feeling that Wyatt is winning this one, too. The proposed idea of Harper and Rowan finally reuniting with their former leader by helping him win the match sounds plausible. Either that, or a video suddenly appears on the titan-tron at the very end of the match showing Wyatt conversing with Reigns' daughter in their house and being friendly with her and hugging her and shit, and it has Reigns so disturbed and distracted by it that Bray is able to recuperate and hit the Sister Abagail on him and pick up the win (although this sounds more like the type of mind games that Wyatt would play leading into the match, but we'll see.)

  14. Current card:

    WWE World Heavyweight Title Match

    Brock Lesnar vs. Seth Rollins

    Triple Threat for the WWE Intercontinental Title
    Big Show vs. The Miz vs. Ryback

    WWE Tag Team Title Match
    The New Day vs. The Prime Time Players

    Roman Reigns vs. Bray Wyatt

    Besides, KO vs Cena for the US title and some divas match, I believe there won't be anything else (relevant) added to the card.
  15. Ryback and Reigns will win their matches I think.
