Pro Wrestling Week in Review: The Battleground is Set
This Sunday marks the time for WWE superstars to go to battle. With eight matches scheduled and with just one more month until SummerSlam--WWE's second-biggest event--anything can happen.
The pre-show will feature Cameron vs. Naomi. This feud has been building for several weeks and on Sunday, these two divas will get nasty.
I'm pulling for Naomi to get revenge after her former partner stabbed her in the back. I knew this team would part ways at some point and now, it has finally happened.
Battleground will also feature three grudge-matches as well as four title matches.
The first grudge-match will be Jack Swagger vs. Rusev. It's a nice throwback to the U.S. vs. Russia rivalry. I'm gong for Swagger to restore order to our great country and crush Rusev.
Of course, that won't be easy. Rusev hasn't loss since joining the main roster, so Swagger will need all of the "Real American" strength he can muster to earn the win.
Chris Jericho will go up against Bray Wyatt. Bray is stronger than Jericho and with Jericho not being in the ring for almost a year, it could turn out to be his downfall.
I like Wyatt's style, but I think Jericho can pull out all the stops and get the victory.
Bray's buddies Luke Harper and Eric Rowan will get another shot against The Usos for the Tag-Team Championships. To make this much a little more interesting, it'll be a best two-out-of-three falls match.
This means the match we've seeing for months will be even longer, and that's fantastic. I really want The Wyatt's to win but if they do, The Usos will want a rematch, and I don't want another match between the two. Either way, I'm sure it will be a great match.
AJ Lee will defend her Divas Championship against Paige. I hope this match lasts longer than three minutes--which is how long their last two matches have gone. I know this will be a good one, and I hope AJ retains.
Then we have the Intercontinental Championship battle royal. These matches are always fun to watch, and my money's on the "King of Swing" Cesaro. I feel like it's his time to get some gold around his waist and with Paul Heyman at his side, it could very well happen on Sunday.
Then we have a match that's been building up for a few months now: Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose. This mach will be a war indeed.
There is no love lost between the two. Ambrose has to make sure he doesn't get disqualified, so he needs t keep that fiery anger of his under control.
Seth will do whatever it takes to win, and I like that. I enjoy watching Rollins in the ring because I know he'll always put on a show; that's why I'm pulling for him to win on Sunday.
Then there's the main event--a fetal four-way match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
John Cena will have to defend his title against Randy Orton, Kane and Roman Reigns. This match is guaranteed to be every man for himself.
Orton may think he has Kane on a chain but at Battleground, that chain will break, and Kane will unleash hell.
Cena will probably end up winning, but we may be surprised. If the title were to change hands on Sunday, I'd say Kane will be the man to do it.
