Tye Dillinger vs Aiden English (Kickoff)- The Kickoff match on the pre-show is set to be The Perfect 10 vs now lone member of the Vaudevillains. I mentioned in my post a few days ago that I would love to see Tye Dillinger getting more opportunities than what he is currently receiving. Prediction: Tye Dillinger should win this match.

John Cena vs Rusev Flag Match- The Face That Runs The Plac, John Cena will take on the Bulgarian Brute Rusev in a flag match. Both Superstar’s Flags will be suspended in the turn buckles on the opposite side of the rin. The Superstars will fight and the first person to retirve their Country’s flag will be the winner. Prediction: John Cena!

20170718_BG_NakamuraCorbin--e9f9c7249b6efaf7f8e8e97715f30d1d

Shinsuke Nakamura vs Baron Corbin – The 2 Superstars have been feuding since Nakamura ended his feud with the show off Dolph Ziggler. Even though the opponents are the different this time around, the feud is the same. Corbin believes that Nakamura is getting all of the shine and spotlight for no reason. He feels that he is the Andre The Giant Memorial Winner and Mr. Money In The Bank so he should have the spotlight. Nakamura and Corbin have been brawling before the match, backstage and during each other’s entrances. Predictions: Nakamura for the win!

20170718_BG_TagMatch--1f07e202f13843ccee55bdc8b0f51e19

Smackdown Tag Champions The Usos Vs The New Day – The tag team champions the Usos will be taking on crowd favorites the New Day for the title. The Usos and New Day have been feuding since the New Day returned back to WWE. The battles ahead went from physical to a rap battle. Predictions: I want the Usos to retain. The New Day have been Tag Champions for the longest time.

20170718_BG_WomansEliminationMatch--0eeca5d5e610a780dae777c21e2bff77

Charlotte Flair vs Becky Lynch vs Natalya vs Tamina vs Lana 5 Way Elimination match (number 1 contender at Summer Slam) – This 5 way elimination match should be entertaining. The match results will detemineChampion Naomi’s opponent at the cross brand Summerslam.  I ecpect the match to be pretty good and I expect people who had alliances to turn on each other for the chance at the title. Predictions: I’m feeling Tamina. I think she will become victorious and get a title opportunity.

Sami Zayn vs Mike Kanellis – This feud between the Underdog and the star-crossed lover has been building for a while now. I’m not quite sure or interested int he details of the match so let’s skip to my predictions. Prediction: Mike Kanellis will win. You can’t beat the power of love Sami, lol.

United States Champion Aj Styles Vs Kevin Owens – Another title defense will see the champion and phenomenal AJ Styles versus Kevin Owens for the United Stated Title. Styles won the title during a house match in Madison Square Garden. When he returned to Smackdown the follwoing Tuesday, he initiated an open challenege (sound familiar). Cena came out to challenge and Owens stepped in to claim his rematch. Prediction: AJ Styles retain his title.

20170718_BG_MahalOrton--6a1668911d16e02d4e052dc69040783d

WWE Champion Jinder Mahal vs Randy Orton Punjabi Prison Match- The Punjabi Prison match is going to be a great one. Champion Jinder Mahal will be trapped in 2 prisons with the Viper Randy Orton. This match will solidify the modern day Maharajah’s reign by allowing him to win a match without the help of the Singh Brothers.  I’m very interested in this match! Prediction: Jinder Mahal should retain and this feud can finally be over.

These are my predictions for this weekend’s event! Who do you think wil reign victorious? Which matches are you looking forward to? How do you think the outcome of Battleground will affect Summerslam? Let’s talk WWE!

  1. I’m not sure that the Punjabi prison match will be a great one! The two previous ones from years ago sucked big time but it could surprise me and its been a decade since the last one so at least it’ll be different. Glad it’ll be the end of the feud!

    Agree with all your other picks.

    • When the last one happened, I wasn’t watching WWE at that time (on my 15 year hiatus lol). It looks awesome so I’m definitely ready to see how it’s going to turn out. We printed out prediction sheets at work and submitted our predictions for the event. The winner gets THE BELTTTTT (Toy’s R Us Belt, but the bragging rights are the real prize).

      I just realized that I did not predict 1 title changing hands tonight. Really these predictions are more of what I would like to happen then what I really think will happen. For example, I’m sure the New Day will probably win, but the titles will not change hands is what I’m thinking.
