Battleground Preview

I totally forgot to write this earlier. I watched Abraxas, Guardian Of The Universe starring Jesse Ventura. It was great. I would bet that Rusty has seen it.

The Usos vs Breezango on the preshow.
Geez...this show is packed. I wonder what else will get moved to the preshow. To my knowledge there was absolutely no build for this match. So yeah...it's something.

Sasha Banks and TBA vs Charlotte and Dana Brooke
Bayley, Nia, Alexa, Nikki, Naomi.....Trish? Wild guess. I remember her saying she wanted to work with Charlotte and Sasha is tweeting that no one would guess or something. I honestly have no news or rumors. The match is a descent way to further the feud.

Rusev vs Zack Ryder for the United States Championship
Nice little feud that had continued to help Rusev get back to where he was before he jobber to Cena 3 times or whatever....and now he smells so much better. Ryder is through the moon both being on tv, and getting the pleasure of working with Rusev.

Becky Lynch vs Natalya
I bet The Marshall skips this match. I'm guessing it will be short.

The New Day vs The Wyatt Family
Really, the big thing coming out of this feud has been Bray discovering that The Pick Axe is his Sledgehammer, and Braun Strowman shirtless. Wow. Just wow. Greatly wonder what estrogen he is gonna test positive for. After a few kinda lame promos, The New Day seems to be working a little harder to compete with Enzo and Big Cass. Can't complain.....other than the tag titles being completely pointless.

The Miz vs Darren Young for the Intercontinental Championship
Well, I like that Bob Backlund is on TV with Black Cena. Remember that time Darren randomly killed it in some ppv match (it might have been RAW too....not positive). He has the chance to be great, but I doubt he'll be allowed to wrestle in a way to get over with marks...because Vince probably considers him a joke with his past, and Mr. Backlund. Hope for good things though.

The Club vs Cena's Chain Gang
Well, the promos have been top notch. I just wrote a paragraph about John Cena that I erased. Interesting with the no more house shows, and Smackdown. I think this "I'm getting older, but I've been the man for 12 years" character is just as dumb as white rapper or shoved down your throat former white rapper is lame. It just kinda acknowledges that he's old. Has anyone googled Karl's wife. I honestly haven't.

Kevin Owens vs Sami Zayn
So bummed they weren't drafted to separate shows. I had booked them out in my head for like the next two years. It included sit down promos, visits to Tijuana, only touching like two times a year. Who knows. Sami will probably just get demoted to Cruiserweight.

The Highlight Reel featuring Randy Orton
This will be a barrel of laughs I'm sure.

Dean Ambrose vs Seth Rollins vs Roman Reigns for the WWE Championship
This should be interesting. I passed out writing this last night. It's so weird to see a main event where everyone just feels miss cast. Will it be some weird shmoz? I have no real insight as I just want the heel that gets cheered to win.

Seems like Mauro is getting punished for being too good as he's getting saddled with JBL. Ultima Lucha was good. Seems like they went more with character building than being insane this year (still pretty insane though).  The Super-J Cup was mildly underwhelming. Lots of new faces, which made it hard to get emotionally involved. Which is the exact opposite problem of the CWC. Lots of new faces that are easily described and pontificated upon. Only complaint....I feel like I know who is gonna win every match. I guess that is the dilemma of being a diligent indie mark.

I think that's it. Enjoy.
