WWE Battleground 2016 is just several days away and the final match card for the pay-per-view is set. There are eight official matches for the event and here are the latest rumors surrounding WWE Battleground 2016.
- Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns in a Triple Threat Match for the WWE Championship
Dean Ambrose has successfully defended the WWE championship twice this week. He was drafted to SmackDown Live in the draft which means he could lose the WWE championship at Battleground. Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns are both drafted to Monday Night and the WWE would like to have the biggest prize on its flagship show.
- John Cena, Enzo Amore & Big Cass vs. The Club
The Club was split up in the draft with Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows going to Raw and A.J. Styles to SmackDown. It is expected that John Cena, Enzo & Big Cass will win this six-man tag team match to even things with Styles.
Nonetheless, the WWE Universe will be treated to Cena vs. Styles II at SummerSlam as both superstars are on SmackDown. On the other hand, Anderson and Gallows might have a new leader coming as Finn Balor was also drafted to Raw.
- Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens
The WWE has built this match the final chapter in the Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens feud. However, both stars are members of the Raw brand which mean they will likely face each other again more than once.
- Becky Lynch vs. Natalya
These two very talented ladies have exchanged attacks in the past couple of weeks. Becky Lynch and Natalya were both drafted to SmackDown so their feud is expected to continue.
- The Miz vs. Darren Young for the Intercontinental Championship
Darren Young is looking to be great again but he needs to make this shot for the Intercontinental championship count. He is now a member of Raw while The Miz is at SmackDown so he can’t have a rematch for the title.
- Rusev vs. Zack Ryder for the United States Championship
Rusev has been booked really good since the League of Nations disbanded. He needs to continue the momentum and defeat Zack Ryder at WWE Battleground 2016.
- Chris Jericho’s ‘The Highlight Reel’ with Randy Orton
The match between Randy Orton and Brock Lesnar is still on despite two failed drug tests for The Beast. Chris Jericho will host a special edition of “The Highlight Reel” to promote Lesnar vs. Orton. Expect Y2J to call The Viper a stupid idiot at some point to set up the RKO out of nowhere.
- The New Day vs. The Wyatt Family
After a couple of weeks teasing a breakup for The New Day, The Wyatt Family is the one that got disbanded at the draft. Bray Wyatt was drafted to SmackDown while Erick Rowan and Braun Strowman are on Raw. The tag titles are not on the line so expect the Wyatts to get a win, per Cageside Seats.
- Sasha Banks & Mystery Partner vs. Charlotte & Dana Brooke
According to The Inquisitr, Bayley may end up being Sasha Banks’ mystery partner against Charlotte and Dana Brooke. Even though The Boss has denied this rumor a few days ago, Bayley is the perfect partner for her at WWE Battleground 2016.
