Rollins vs Reigns vs Ambrose, Zayn vs Owens, Cena & Enzo & Cass vs The Club

Before every WWE PPV, Suplah City goes LIVE on YouTube to discuss the upcoming event, giving their predictions and having fun whilst they do. On Suplahground 2016, Carmine, Sam and Andy discuss Battleground!

Also discussed; Heath Slater fantasy booking, the baffling choice to call up Mojo Rawley, Kalisto’s good Lucha thing, and what the WWE should do going forward with the draft… did you miss the build to Battleground? All the answers are here.

 

Dean Ambrose (c) defeated Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns – Singles Match for the WWE Championship

Once a unit, now divided – we’re finally getting the most anticipated triple threat match in recent memory, and it’s happening now. “The Guy” Roman Reigns was WWE Champion heading into the previous PPV, Money in the Bank, coming off a series of victories over AJ Styles. After the surprise return of Seth Rollins, the former champion that vacated the title due to injury, Reigns was booked to face him in the main event of Money in the Bank. After Dean Ambrose captured the illustrious Money in the Bank briefcase earlier in the night, everyone sat on the edge of their seat during the main event, where Rollins triumphed over Reigns and captured the WWE Championship for a second time, only to have it taken away from him minutes later, when Ambrose cashed in his contract and defeated Rollins.

The stage was set for the match everyone has awaited for years… and then Roman Reigns violated the WWE’s Wellness Policy, earning himself a 30-day suspension. Rollins proceeded to badmouth him on Raw and SmackDown, and WWE padded out the rest of the build by teasing the insertion of John Cena and AJ Styles to the main event match. Rollins and Ambrose then proceeded to have a series of matches together, starting with a false-finish and ending with Ambrose defeating Rollins clean on the WWE Draft edition of SmackDown Live. Now Reigns’ suspension has been lifted, and everybody was ready to boo him out of the building.

After Reigns Superman Punched and Speared Rollins, Ambrose delivered the Dirty Deeds to Reigns and picked up the clean victory – the show closes out with the SmackDown roster celebrating with our Lunatic Champion.

Sami Zayn defeated Kevin Owens – Singles Match

Continuing the eternal conflict between the two angry Canadians, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn face off in a singles match for the third time on PPV. After colliding in the Money in the Bank Ladder match, Zayn defeated Owens on Raw, leading to another installment in this saga. As it stood, Owens had two victories over Zayn’s one victory – with both men drafted to Raw, will they really fight forever? Probably.

Zayn brought up his record to two wins after blasting his rival with two Helluva Kicks.

 

Rusev (c) defeated Zack Ryder – Singles Match for the United States Championship

Zack Ryder has picked up a lot of steam recently. Surprising everyone at WrestleMania 32 by winning the Intercontinental Championship in a ladder match, and then proceeding to lose it on Raw 24 hours later, Ryder then made it his mission to recapture the United States Championship, previously held by Ryder in 2011. Rusev, the Bulgarian Brute, has also picked up a lot of steam recently. Dominating the competition by defeating Kalisto for the United States Championship, and defending against Titus O’Neil at Money in the Bank, Rusev has been unopposed for months… until Ryder made his intentions known.

After breaking out of the Accolade, things didn’t seem too bad for the Long Island Iced Z, but Rusev asserted his dominance by locking it back in and making Ryder tap. Mojo Rawley made his debut after the match, yelling at Rusev for several minutes.

The Miz (c) vs Darren Young (w/ Bob Backlund) ended in a Double Disqualification – Singles Match for the Intercontinental Championship

The Miz and Maryse have been flaunting their Intercontinental Championship ever since winning it from the aforementioned Zack Ryder, defeating numerous opponents to keep it. Bob Backlund has made it his mission to “Make Darren Young Great Again” (cue same joke everyone else makes regarding Young being great in the first place), becoming his life coach and imparting sage knowledge to his young friend. After winning a Battle Royale on Raw to determine the number one contender for the championship (without eliminating a single person), Young has shown a newfound intensity in his feud with Miz.

The match came to a confusing, frustrating end when Young locked in the Crossface Chickenwing on the outside, leading to the ref disqualifying both men.

 

John Cena, Enzo Amore and Big Cass defeated The Club (AJ Styles, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows) – Six-man Tag Team Match

John Cena vs AJ Styles, a dream match, ended questionably at Money in the Bank, when AJ Styles’ fellow Club stablemates, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows, attacked Cena during the match, leading to Styles’ victory. After each man was given the opportunity to be in the main event title match, each man then proceeded to ensure that the other never got the opportunity. To cancel out Styles’ help, Enzo and Cass answered the call of John Cena, setting up this tag match.

The Cenation leader got the better of the Club, delivering an AA to Styles from the top rope, hopefully setting up their match at SummerSlam next month.

The Wyatt Family defeated The New Day- Six-man Tag Team Match

The longest reigning Tag Team Champions in WWE history, The New Day, drew the attention of the returning Wyatt Family. The Wyatt Family and the New Day traded words back and forth, with the creepy family eventually inviting the New Day to their compound. A brawl ensued, and now we’re here; a non-title match at Battleground.

With Xavier Woods overcoming his fear of the patriarch during the match, the New Day seemed close to a victory, only to have their positivity shattered once Wyatt nailed Woods with the Sister Abigail, leading to the victory for the creepy cult.

 

Sasha Banks and Bayley defeated Charlotte and Dana Brooke – Tag Team Match

After Sasha Banks returned to the WWE to claim the Women’s Championship, Charlotte took exception to her challenge. Alongside her ally Dana Brooke, Charlotte provoked the wrath of The Boss, leading to the scheduling of this tag team bout – in the dark about Sasha’s mystery partner, the rumors were running wild… and the call was answered by Bayley!

After the Doctor of Huganomics kept Brooke on the outside, Banks made the Women’s Champion tap out with the Banks Statement.

Natalya defeated Becky Lynch – Singles Match

When Natalya turned on Becky Lynch at Money in the Bank, Lynch found herself without any real allies. After lighting a fire beneath herself, Lynch set out to prove that she could get the last word on her former friend, and perhaps propel herself into the title picture again after this match. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be, after Natalya locked in the Sharpshooter for a second time, on the Lass Kicker’s injured leg.

 

Notable Segments

Randy Orton appeared on the Highlight Reel with Chris Jericho, delivering an RKO out of nowhere to Y2J. Breezango defeated the Usos on the Kickoff Show.
