John Cena vs. Kane vs. Randy Orton vs. Roman Reigns, Fatal Four-Way Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Cena retains, but doesn't pin Reigns to win. Going out on a limb, I know.

Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins: I'm thinking Rollins, leading to a rematch with a stipulation at Summerslam.

Chris Jericho vs. Bray Wyatt: Jericho should win at least once or twice while he's back, but I don't really know a good way to put him over here unless there are a lot of bells and whistles involved. Officially, I'll go Wyatt.

The Usos vs. Erick Rowan & Luke Harper, WWE Tag Team Championship Match: Here's where Harper and Rowan get the titles.

A.J. Lee vs. Paige, Divas Championship Match: A.J. retains and perhaps we see Paige go full-on heel.

Intercontinental Championship Battle Royal: Maybe a pick out of left field, but I'll say Bo Dallas.

Jack Swagger vs. Rusev: Weighing Swagger finally breaking Rusev's streak (though he lost by DQ on Smackdown) vs. Swagger's Patriotism winning out. I'll say Rusev takes a DQ loss again.

Most of my picks are the same because Battleground doesn't seem like it's going to have a lot suspense or surprises.

I'll agree that Cena, Rollins, Bray, Usos and AJ win.

For the Intercontinental Title I think I'll go with Kofi eliminating Cesaro after Cesaro eliminates Big E. Ziggler will also be in the final four.

Rusev wins over Swagger. I think they save Rusev's first loss for Summerslam. Mark Henry, maybe?

I believe they said on Raw that the pre-show match would be Cameron vs. Naomi. I'll take Naomi. Please god, let it be Naomi.

John Cena vs. Kane vs. Randy Orton vs. Roman Reigns, Fatal Four-Way Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Cena pins Kane or Orton to retain. Reigns maybe spears Cena afterwards.

Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins: Ambrose.

Chris Jericho vs. Bray Wyatt: Probably a DQ or other inconclusive finish to continue this feud for another month or two.

The Usos vs. Erick Rowan & Luke Harper, WWE Tag Team Championship Match: Wyatt Family wins.

A.J. Lee vs. Paige, Divas Championship Match: Paige gets a surprise win via cheating (pulling the 'tights', using her feet on the ropes, that sort of thing).

Intercontinental Championship Battle Royal: Hopefully they finally pull the trigger on Cesaro.

Jack Swagger vs. Rusev: Rusev. Swagger will disappoint as always.

-----

EDIT: THIS suggests that Brock Lesnar might make a surprise appearance at Battleground, get handed the 'injured' Rollin's briefcase, and cash in on Cena (since running Lesnar as a challenger to Cena's title would just turn Brock face; the fans cheer Cena grudgingly at best). Anyone think this is a possibility? If so, we probably will be getting a replacement for Ambrose/Rollins announced on Smackdown.

John Cena vs. Kane vs. Randy Orton vs. Roman Reigns, Fatal Four-Way Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Cena.

Despite Reigns' push, if they're smart, they'll have Cena pin Reigns after Randy Orton hits him with an RKO. Reigns can't win 'em all and he needs to be knocked down the ladder so he can spend the fall climbing up it.

This also sets up Orton vs Reigns at SummerSlam, where Orton can claim he "beat" Reigns with the RKO at Battleground, and then Reigns can beat Orton there to redeem the loss here.

That said, Kane is in the match, so I'm guessing he's job guy because they're so ascared of what'll happen if they make Reigns look bad in any way right now.


Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins: Ambrose. Ambrose is the one losing a lot more often lately, so I think Ambrose wins here and Rollins wins at SummerSlam.

Chris Jericho vs. Bray Wyatt: Jericho wins by DQ.

The Usos vs. Erick Rowan & Luke Harper, WWE Tag Team Championship Match: Rowan and Harper win the tag titles so they can feud with the Dusts at SummerSlam.

A.J. Lee vs. Paige, Divas Championship Match: AJ retains.

Intercontinental Championship Battle Royal: Cesaro wins his second battle royal of the year and then has a meaningless IC Title reign.

Jack Swagger vs. Rusev: Rusev.

Eh, this reads like fan fiction that takes something Heyman just said yesterday far too literally.

I realize that they can make up whatever rules they want in a fictional TV show, but you can't just give the briefcase to someone. You can lose it in a match or win it in a match, but simply stealing the briefcase or having possession of it doesn't do anything. According to Wrestling Law.

It's also setting up the same match we're getting no matter who has the belt, so if all of this is being done to mildly adjust the crowd reaction for Cena at SummerSlam, it's a bit much.

The only reason I can think of to do this is if they really want Cena to go over at SummerSlam, but it sounds more like they want Brock to win at SummerSlam to entice people for Night of Champions so they renew their WWE Network subscriptions. Putting Brock over at both Battleground and SummerSlam is a waste of Brock's time when the one match will do.

Brock/Cena is being given "Big Match" treatment and that only works when you don't hot shot the big match in a MITB cash-in less than a month earlier. Even if the match is 5 seconds, it'd still be Brock/Cena II and they don't want to give that away without advertising it.

There's always an idea people have for Brock making an unbilled appearance on a PPV but, until WWE shows they're willing to pay the Brock Tax without advertising him, assume it's never ever going to happen.

It does seem pretty unlikely, considering the high price tag that Brock seems to have on his appearances. The only evidence I could see beyond an offhand remark by Heyman is Rollins doing the faked injury angle, though that could have as simple as wanting to let the Fatal 4-way participants go at it. If Rollins is still going to be around to face Ambrose, though, that idea goes out the window. A slow burn for Summerslam probably is better, and people might still be butthurt enough about the Undertaker (especially with Heyman mentioning it twice a week) to boo Lesnar even against Cena. Though I have a feeling the solid anti-Cenation will probably still be chanting 'BROCK, BROCK, BROCK' during their match and after he raises the belt.

Cena retains by pinning Kane. Postmatch, Reigns spears him to keep his heat.

Rollins wins via shenanigans, prompting Dean to up the stakes and challenge him for the briefcase for Summerslam.

Jericho wins.

Harper and Rowan win the tag titles. Hopefully the Usos aren't forgotten, because I'm fairly certain the next challenge to the Wyatts' reign of terror will come from the Sons of Dust.

AJ retains. Hopefully they get 8-10 minutes to showcase their skills.

Intercontinental Championship: Cesaro wins. I'm thinking the final four will be Cesaro, Sheamus, Miz, and Ziggler. Kofi will do Kofi things, and maybe Bo will get a spot to shine as well.

Swagger wins but not decisively. Maybe Rusev takes the DQ or a "I've-had-enough-of-this" Countout. The Accolade is *NOT* broken out of.

Preshow: Cameron. I think. The blonde one. I can't tell them apart.

John Cena vs. Kane vs. Randy Orton vs. Roman Reigns, Fatal Four-Way Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Reigns pulls the upset after interference from Lesnar costs Cena his consciousness.

Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins: Rollins takes it.

Chris Jericho vs. Bray Wyatt: Wyatt wins, but my real thinking is going to be a double DQ or other shenanigans.

The Usos vs. Erick Rowan & Luke Harper, Usos win, just so they can drop it at SummerSlam

A.J. Lee vs. Paige, Divas Championship Match: A.J.

Intercontinental Championship Battle Royal:My heart says Cesaro, my mind says Slater in an upset. I'm going with Cesaro.

Jack Swagger vs. Rusev: Swagger (by DQ perhaps?)


Cameron vs Naomi Do not care. Cameron.

Cena

Ambrose wins, and in a rare subversion he challenges him AGAIN at Summerslam for the brief case.

Wyatt wins.

Harper and Rowan also wins.

AJ wins.

Intercontinental Championship: Kofi wins with some crazy battle royal stuff. Cesaro then DESTROYS him after.

Swagger, because having a Russian Big Bad might be a bit more awkward these days.

Naomi? Sure yeah.

Sandow/Rose? Rose, because Sandow never wins.

John Cena vs. Kane vs. Randy Orton vs. Roman Reigns, Fatal Four-Way Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Cena. Match of the night contender. Lesnar DOES make an appearance post match and F5s Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry. Perry is in Cena's corner for SS.

Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins: Rollins. Match of the night contender. Dean Ambrose proves he's a tough guy by drinking a quart of chainsaw bar oil throughout the match, which leads to a roll-up by Rollins.

Chris Jericho vs. Bray Wyatt: Jericho by DQ. Match of the night contender. Jericho wins after Bray Wyatt kicks the referee square in the groin 2 seconds after the bell rings.

The Usos vs. Erick Rowan & Luke Harper, WWE Tag Team Championship Match: Rowan and Harper. Match of the night contender, these guys just bring it every time the get in the ring together. To truly up the ante of the caliber of match they'll have, in this one someone will be put through a 12 foot long submarine sandwich and the Harpers will be dressed like members of the Killer Bees.

A.J. Lee vs. Paige, Divas Championship Match: AJ. Match of the night contender. Everybody chants "CM Punk" nonstop during the match, which means nobody considers it a pee break. The fans win.

Intercontinental Championship Battle Royal: Alberto Del Rio for no real reason other than he just seems to be a go-to guy that fills in whenever or wherever for whatever title. Match of the night contender.

Jack Swagger vs. Rusev: Rusev. Match of the night contender. Jack Swagger makes jibes about Rusev's Italian heritage, much to the chagrin of Zeb and recently retired Santino Marella. Rusev tricks Swagger into thinking Swagger is actually from Turkey, Swagger walks away for a count out decision since the Turks don't have beef. Zeb Coulter says he's enacting Plan C and brings out Heyman and Lesnar. Lesnar F5s Motley Crue guitarist Mick Mars, which puts Mick Mars in Rusev's corner for Summerslam against a returning Mark Henry.
