WWE Battle Ground Predictions
- R-Truth vs. King Barrett
Prediction: King Barrett
Barrett needs a win so bad. This feud with R-Truth is hurting him a lot. It’s bad enough that Barret is stuck in this feud; the worse part is that he is losing a lot in this rivalry of sorts. The King of the Ring is a prestigious tournament. Legends such as Stone Cold and Steve Austin and The American Blue Blood Hunter Hearst Helmsley used this tournament as a launching pad for future stardom. This tournament should be an annual event once again, but this time, bring back the honor and the prestige of it, by making a young guy win it then giving him the push worthy of a true King Of The Ring.
- Roman Reigns vs. Bray Wyatt
Prediction: Roman Reigns
I expect this to be a good match. Roman Reigns is capable of putting up a good match, well, when he is against a good worker. And Wyatt is the master on in-ring psychology, and I expect Bray to use those antics to make this match interesting. Such a shame that Bray is stuck in losing feuds and matches, but WWE can’t afford for Roman to look weak, a potential World title reign this year or next year is in the horizon.
- Randy Orton vs Sheamus
Prediction: Randy Orton
This is quite hard to predict. Orton is just stuck in this mini-feud. Sheamus is the Money in the Bank holder, but he is just binding his time until WWE push him into the World title picture. I don’t see Sheamus cashing it this Battleground. A major PPV like Summerslam is always a possibility of a cash-in, as guys such as Alberto Del Rio and Randy Orton did it in arguably the second biggest night of the year, but I don’t think he cash in this Summerslam either. Hopefuly, this can be a good match, in spite of the randomness of this match.
- John Cena vs Kevin Owens for the United States Championship
Prediction: John Cena retains
Another hard match to predict! Will WWE allow Cena to lose this trilogy? Owens is ready for the US title, but it would be better to reserve that for a major PPV like Summerslam. I expect this to be a very good match, but perhaps, it might not be as good as their previous two, though it might be by design. Cesaro and/or Rusev might interfere and the possibility of this being an un-clean match is very high, perhaps for Owens to save face in the case of Cena retaining. A fatal four-way match for the US title at Summerslam between the 4 mentioned superstars; is a possibility. Some are pushing for Dean Ambrose to join the mix. It is unfortunate that Ryback got injured, cancelling the Triple-Threat Intercontinental title match. With that said, it’s up for the US title to deliver the mid-card title relevance for this card.
- The Prime Time Players vs. The New Day for the Tag Team Championships
Prediction: Prime Time Players
I don’t think the Prime Time players are just one-month champions. Though with the controversy regarding Darren Young, when he got offended that the WWE censored the face of his partner, a punishment in form of losing the title is a possibility.
Seth Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Prediction: Seth Rollins retains
Another match that is hard to predict. Again, with Summerslam just a month away, it is still the safe belt to assume that the title changes will be reserved for the biggest party of the summer. I expect this to be a very good match. Hopefully, Seth can have a 5-star match with Brock. There have been rumors of Undertaker and Sting showing up in Summerslam. And there have been rumors of Taker showing up in Battleground. This PPV is the gateway for perhaps one of the biggest Summerslams in recent history.
