Announced line-up for WWE’s Battleground PPV card and thoughts


WWE’s Battleground PPV is shaping up to pretty amazing.  It will take place on July 20, 2014 at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa, Florida. With the return of Chris Jericho, AJ Lee, and the promise of Bray Wyatt stepping back in to the ring as a one on one competitor this should be a memorable one.

As long as AJ Lee and Paige are allowed to wrestle and not promote another Total Divas associated female wrestler that should add a nice dynamic to this event. I can see Nikki Bella being placed in this match because she is one of the WWE’s executive staff favorites. Oh, and she’s the girlfriend of WWE Superman John Cena. That helps.

The main event is a fatal 4-way because, let’s face it, the WWE doesn’t know how to make more than one or two storylines work at the same time. And hell, Kane is 47 I believe and for him to finally be getting pushed to the main event again is rightfully deserved. He has given so much to this company in terms of being a company man, his health, and his time. One last hurrah for the demon.

Only time will tell if Roman reigns can rise above everyone else like the WWE is pushing him to do.

Wyatts vs. Usos for the millionth time. I hope the Harpers get the tag team titles. I love the Usos, but they are also getting stale.

Poor Wade Barrett is out right as things were getting good for him in terms of position. Now we have a battle royal for his vacated  intercontinental title. I predict Sheamus to win and unify his US championship belt with the intercontinental title.

Here is the latest line-up for the event.

Fatal 4 Way for the WWE World Heavyweight Title
Kane vs. Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton vs. John Cena

2 of 3 Falls Match for the WWE Tag Team Titles
Erick Rowan and Luke Harper vs. The Usos

WWE Divas Title Match
Paige vs. AJ Lee

Battle Royal for the Vacant WWE Intercontinental Title
Fandango, Sheamus, Cesaro, Damien Sandow, The Great Khali, Ryback, Curtis Axel, Bo Dallas, Kofi Kingston, Dolph Ziggler, Rob Van Dam, Big E, Alberto Del Rio

Rusev vs. Jack Swagger

Chris Jericho vs. Bray Wyatt
