It’s that time of the month for us WWE fans, as WWE Battleground 2016 takes place this Sunday. It’s the last PPV with both brands going at each other as one brand, since the Draft took place on July 19. With that being said, here are my predictions for WWE Battleground.
The New Day vs. The Wyatt Family- With this more than likely being the last time we see the Wyatt family fight as a group, seeing that Braun Strowman is going to Raw and Bray and Rowan were drafted to Smackdown, I feel like this match would be a lot better if it was for the Tag Team Titles. Anyways, I’m saying The Wyatt Family is gonna get the win here. New Day really have no reason to win this match, since the belts aren’t on the line. Plus, Xavier Woods has been acting strange when it comes to the Wyatt’s. Don’t be surprised to see Xavier cost his team the win and start the fall of The New Day.
My pick: Wyatt Family
Becky Lynch vs. Natalya- I just can’t seem to get excited for this match. The feud has seen Natalya beat up Becky Lynch so much, and it really hasn’t been much more than that. For that reason, I’m picking Becky.
My pick: Becky Lynch
Dana Brooke and Charlotte vs. Sasha Banks and ?- This is the second PPV in a row where Charlotte doesn’t defend her women’s championship. Now, I don’t have a complete problem with it this time, because this is probably gonna lead to Charlotte vs. Sasha at Summerslam for the belt, which means in order for this to happen, Sasha and her mystery partner will get the win over Charlotte and Dana Brooke.
My pick: Sasha Banks and her mystery partner
Enzo, Big Cass, and John Cena vs. The Club- This match is my favorite on the card. Enzo and Cass are huge fan favorites and John Cena… well, he’s John Cena. AJ Styles has looked SO good since coming to the WWE, and Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows DID look good, but they’ve looked weak due to John Cena just destroying them in the past weeks. The Club got the win against Cena at Money in the Bank, therefore I’m going with Cena, Enzo and Cass.
My pick: John Cena, Enzo, and Big Cass
Rusev vs. Zack Ryder: US Championship Match- I just don’t know what to say about this match. Ryder already got his push and then got dragged back down to the bottom of the well. I think this match will be almost all Rusev, just to make him seem like a strong champion.
My pick: Rusev
Darren Young vs. The Miz: IC Championship Match- I hated watching all of those stupid “Make Darren Young Great Again” clips, so I figured I would hate him as well. Strangely, I kinda like him. If you had asked me before the draft who I would have, I would have told you Darren Young. He’s the underdog, and it’s obvious that he needs the push. Now, I’m not so sure. Darren got drafted to Raw, and The Miz got drafted to Smackdown. I think the title will stay on Smackdown, therefore I’m going with The Miz.
My pick: The Miz
Roman Regins vs. Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose: WWE Championship Match- I can’t hold in how excited I am for this match. I am a little surprised that they decided to keep Reigns in it, as he is just coming back from his suspension. Since he is just coming back now, I don’t have him winning the belt back right away, and if they do give him the belt back, I’ll smash my TV in. Rollins and Ambrose have had twogood matches the past week, and I think they’ll have another good match with Reigns involved this time. As much as I would like to see the belt be on Ambrose, I think I’m going to say Rollins. This is a real tough one to predict. Ambrose has beat Rollins on two different occasions now, and Rollins was picked first in the draft, because Stephanie believed he would bring the title over to Raw. That would mean IF WWE brings another major title into the company, it would go over to Smackdown. It should be a fun match to call and could go either way, but I’m going with Rollins in the main event of WWE Battleground.
My pick: Seth Rollins
