WWE Battleground Predictions
Becky Lynch vs Natalya
Winner: Becky Lynch
The Women’s championship is on RAW while both of these women are from Smackdown. It is unlikely for the Divas title to return, the division might just stick to one title and the WWE just needs to figure out how the women from the “other” brand can stay in title contention even though the only title of the division is on the other show. Becky needs this win to reestablish her self as one of the leaders of the division.
Intercontinental Champion The Miz vs Darren Young
Winner: The Miz retains
It is possible that Darren Young, because of Bob Backlund, just might win his first singles title, but that might also be reserved for Summerslam. But this is an inter-promotional matchup. The mid-card titles should be on opposite shows, and since I can’t see Zack Ryder winning the US title, the secondary titles stays put.
US Champion Rusev vs Zack Ryder
I can’t see Ryder winning the US title but hopefully, he gets some good storylines thanks to the brand split.
Sasha Banks and a mystery partner vs Charlotte and Dana
Winner: Team Sasha
People are hoping for a Bayley callup but they just might delay that a bit. Paige just might be her partner. Sasha should win the title at Summerslam. I was hoping after Wrestlemania, that that match would be the Summerslam main event, but the momentum of the division got sidetracked for bit.
The New Day vs The Wyatt Family
Winner: The New Day
This is the end for the Wyatt family as they got drafted to different shows. The New Day should get this win in order to get some momentum towards a big title showdown at Summerslam. I don’t see the tag titles splitting though.
Sami Zayn vs Kevin Owens
Winner: Sami Zayn
For the nth time, it’s Zayn vs Owens, and anything less than a 4-star match ( and we are hoping for another 5-star match) is a disappointment.
John Cena, Enzo and Cass vs The Club
Winner: Team Cena
Thanks to the draft, this is the end for the club, at least for this version. No need for AJ to take the pin here though. It is likely for the Club to turn on AJ after the match, and for Fin Balor to eventually take over.
WWE Champion Dean Ambrose vs Seth Rollins vs Roman Reigns
Winner: Dean Ambrose
A lot of people are expecting Rollins to bring the premier title back to the flagship show but I think Dean can pull this one off. I think the big gold belt, the World Heavyweight Title just might make its return so both brands can have their respective WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
