  5. My answers are in...

    I was going to do a write up...but...I decided against it...
     
  6. This one ain't too exciting, is it?
     
  7. Well...Okay...I will share my thoughts...

    Of the 8 matches on the card...7 of them have been seen before.

    The only "new" match is Corbin vs. Nakamura...and personally
    that match is a "No Win" scenario for either men.

    Either Nakamura is defeated and gets taken down a peg...or
    Corbin is defeated...which doesn't look good as he is most
    likely going to be a future top title holder on SmackDown...
    or even possibly RAW.

    It doesn't look good for Nakamura as we know Vince likes
    "Big Sweaty Men" and most likely calls Nakamura "Nintendo"
    in board meetings.

    Tye Dillinger vs. Aiden English really serves no purpose and
    we have seen it before on Pay Per View. I'm a big Tye Dillinger
    fan...but couldn't we see him wrestle someone else? Say Erick
    Rowan or even Luke Harper?

    I like Jinder as the World Champion...but the feud with Orton
    has gone on for too long...and it really made no sense for
    Jinder to pick a match where the Singh brothers can't back
    him up.

    The New Day & Usos are all great workers and their match
    at MITB was awesome...but the ending of that match kind
    of spoiled this entire feud for me.

    Plus the WWE Universe has seen this match many times
    before the New Day even ended up on SmackDown.

    Cena vs. Rusev...I mean...I want Rusev to win...but if the
    past records are to be believed...then Cena is going over
    Rusev again.

    I mean these 2 had a Wrestlemania match for the US title...
    so this is a step down...and frankly a waste of time.

    I'm sure Styles vs. Owens will be top class. Both are
    fantastic workers...but...the fact Styles claimed the belt
    at a house show is slightly annoying to me.

    I'd be more invested if Owens was still champion and
    Styles was trying to claim the belt.

    And Sami Zayn vs. Mike Kanellis...well...they just had
    this match a few days ago...and I wasn't really impressed.

    The only way this match could be interesting for me is
    if one of the other ladies on the roster (most likely Becky)
    comes out and helps Sami get a win back.

    No...I don't "ship" Becky/Sami (We all know Becky is
    married to Charlotte) its just the only way I would care.

    And finally...the women's match...

    They just keep throwing the women in a ring together
    ad shout "DO STUFF!!!" and while I like all the ladies
    of the WWE...its just feels like an excuse for lazy writing.

    The fact Naomi isn't defending the belt or Carmella doesn't
    have a match is fucking pathetic...and there was simple
    way to fix that.

    Have Naomi defend the belt against anyone but Lana at
    Battleground and add Carmella to the 5 way Elimination
    match.

    That way Naomi and Carmella are on the card and you
    still get a 5 way #1 contender match for Summerslam.

    I'm also concerned that the booking team will have Lana
    pin either Charlotte or Becky (possibly with a roll up)...
    which will piss me off to no end.

    I also wouldn't put it past the SmackDown creative team
    to have the 5 way elimination match break down into chaos
    and Shane McMahon books a 6 Pack Challenge match at
    Summerslam...and no matter who wins that gets to have
    Carmella cash in on them.

    Either way...I hope Charlotte or Becky wins the Battleground
    match...and after being pinned and submitted in the last
    two weeks...not to mention she hasn't won on pay per view
    since the Royal Rumble...most signs point to Charlotte.

    Also another rumor going round is Becky may have a match
    against Cris Cyborg at Summerslam...which may be leading
    to the fantasy match up of Charlotte vs. Ronda Rousey at
    Wrestlemania 34.

    Plus...there is a strong rumor that no titles will be changing
    hands at Battleground because they will be saving those for
    Summerslam.

    So...yeah...apart from the women's match...why should I care?
