WWE Battleground 2017 Preview and Predictions
The first match for the pay per view is the kickoff match between Tye Dillinger and 8 Aiden English.
It is good to see that Aiden English is at least in the pay-per-view but this match is not something everybody is looking forward to. We have seen the match several times on SmackDown and even on pay per views. The backlash kickoff also had the same match and we are tired of seeing them fight. Tye Dillinger needs to get a bigger push rather than fighting with Aiden English over and over again.
Prediction: Tye Dillinger.
Mike Kanellis who has recently made his return with his wife Maria Kanellis is having a feud with Sami Zayn. Many people are upset that he is not higher on the card but at least he is going in a direction. I believe that the WWE is teasing the fans for not pushing Sami Zayn. He is definitely going to be pushed sometime soon. If we talk about now, SmackDown needs to build Mike Kanellis and make him a star.
Prediction: Mike Kanellis.
The fatal 5-way match between all the Divas in SmackDown except the champion is one of the most interesting matches on this card. They were literally thrown into multi women matches without making any sense. If it didn’t lead to this, all of those matches would be a waste. Anyway, Becky Lynch vs Charlotte Flair vs Tamina vs Natalya vs Lana is going to bring a good fight. It will be a showcase of talent and the stipulation is that the winner would go on to face Naomi for the Smackdown women’s Championship at SummerSlam. Charlotte was the face of raw before she was drafted to SmackDown. On the other hand, Naomi has been the face of Smackdown ever since WrestleMania. If we have Charlotte vs Naomi at SummerSlam, it would be best for business.
Prediction: Charlotte Flair.
The Usos vs the new day for the SmackDown live Tag Team championships is going to fill the ring with talents. The Usos have been a great heel lately and the new day made an impact as well. The new day is basically the established tag Team and they don’t need the championships yet again. After all, they are the longest reigning WWE Tag Team Champions in the history. The last time they faced Each Other was back in money in the bank and it was very enjoyable. They are expected to put on a great match yet again but I don’t see the new day winning.
Prediction: The Usos.
Shinsuke Nakamura is a very good wrestler who has established himself worldwide. This is the reason why he got the push and the support of fans ever since his debut. He is set to face the current Mr money in the bank who has got his push lately. Baron Corbin is also very talented and he completely deserves what he is getting. Shinsuke Nakamura is undefeated in single’s competition since his debut. I don’t think he is going to lose this match as well.
Prediction: Shinsuke Nakamura.
John Cena vs Rusev in a flag match is completely based upon the fight of two Nations. It is portrayed as not just a fighting match but two fighting Nations. To be honest, I personally I am not interested in this match anymore. The build of this rivalry was not so good and we have seen it so many times before. I don’t think the American John Cena is going to lose to against the Russian Rusev.
Prediction: John Cena.
AJ styles vs Kevin Owens for the United States Championship is the third time we’re seeing. Back in money in the bank, we saw a no contest when these two faced off. Next, AJ styles won the Championship from Kevin Owens in a live show which created a lot of buzz in the social media. The whole rivalry changed overnight in Madison Square Garden and AJ styles accomplished yet another goal. After all, Madison Square Garden is the home of the WWE and winning a Championship there is everybody’s dream. AJ styles are just getting started with his championship reign and he is not going to lose so soon.
Prediction: AJ Styles.
The Punjabi Prison match is back. The first time we saw this type of a match was between Batista and the great Khali. It was not such a good match but we can’t say it’s the fault of the Punjabi prison. If the match consists of one of the greatest wrestlers of WWE, Randy Orton, it is not going to be that boring. The Punjabi prison is portrayed as the yard of Jinder Mahal and he is not seeming to lose the match. Anyway, the match is for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship which is the most prestigious Championship in WWE. We are going to expect a very good match as the main event of the pay per view.
Prediction: Jinder Mahal.
