Fallout from Battleground with set up for Summerslam

There will be plenty to work through today. Why does Jinder Mahal still have the belt, why Kevin Owens won, (it was supposed to be a double count out, A.J keeping the belt til summerslam)

Show opens with Kevin Owens, he plays a good heel. There was a very awkward end to his match with A.J and the crowd is letting him know that they are not happy. The crowd chanting A.J Styles. Kevin says the open challenge will start next week, not in front of a bunch of hicks, A.J on the way to the ring. Kevin refusing to defend against anyone tonight but Chris Jericho has returned and Kevin has seen a ghost.(i am loving this). Kevin tried to run and hide but here comes Shane. its a triple threat match for the United States Belt, which will take place tonight.

***United States Belt — Kevin Owens/A.J Styles/Chris Jericho — It was a real battle, P.P.V caliber match, it went hell for leather and anyone could have pulled it out. In the end just as Kevin was about to pin Chris, A.J flied in the ring, got rid of Kevin and pinned Chris for the win. Kevin has screamed that next week, Kevin will beat A.J and take back HIS United States Title.

***Baron Corbin vs Shinsuke Nakamura — Corbin got himself disqualified at Battleground. It’s been a back and forth match, just when one gets a little going the other shuts it down. Shinsuke got some payback today.

Jinder Mahal is demanding a new opponent for Summerslam. Will be interesting to see what happens. Who ever it is it won’t be a fair fight. (recap of Sunday’s match) The universe is really nasty tonight. John Cena just walked out. this could be interesting. (not heard this twist) John threw down a challenge for Summerslam but here comes Daniel. John vs Shinsuke for the #1 contender to face Jinder Mahal at Summerslam.

***Naomi vs Natalya at Summerslam but here is Carmella with a gentle reminder that she has the Money in the Bank contract.

***Charlotte/Becky Lynch vs Tamina/Lana — OK, well this will be interesting. I like the fact that Lana has gotten away from Rusev and is getting in the ring. She could be a force when she gets some experience. Charlotte takes care of Lana for the win. I like Charlotte, she makes a great heel but like her in fun mode.

***Samy Zayne/Tye Dillinger vs Aiden English/Mike Kanellis — It was a bit of a seesaw battle but Samy and Tye get the well deserved win.


Battleground — Smackdown — Wells Fargo Center

This will be a good setup heading to Summerslam. I am hoping there are a few surprises. They have a chance tonight to really have a great show, I am hoping it will happen.

Royal Rumble will take place here next year.

Pre Show match – Tye Dillinger vs Aiden English – I really hope Tye wins this. It’s an even match. Aiden is a bit of a show off due to the character he is portraying but Tye has the strength. With a hold of the tights English gets the win.

**Main Show**

***Match 1 — Tag Team titles on the line with The Usos vs The New Day. This should be a fun match, anything can and most likely will happen. My tip for this is The New Day. With the Usos turning heal this can and probably will get nasty. Holy Smokes kids how are these guys kick out after all of this. Thought New Day had it. I have no clue how they are staying alive in this match, both teams. The New Day did it. What a way to open this P.P.V (Big E never got involved, staying on the outside the ring)( first tag team to hold both Raw and Smackdown Titles)

***Match 2 — Shinsuke Nakamura vs Baron Corbin. Baron has quite the nasty streak but Shinsuke can also come at you from nowhere when you least expect it. Corbin is strong but so is Shinsuke, who doesn’t look like it but he will surprise you.  Right now its all Corbin, anything Shinsuke has tried Corbin has answered. Corbin being that tall and heavy should not have the speed to knock Shinsuke out of his boots but Corbin did. AFter a deep 6 by Corbin and Shinsuke is still in it. Corbin was just too strong and got the win

***Match 3 — Charlotte, Becky, Natalya, Lana, Tamina for the #1 contender to face Naomi at Summerslam. 5 way, elimination. Tamina looking out for Lana. Becky got Tamina to tap, and Lana just tapped. Becky eliminated by Natalya who was holding tights. Down to Charlotte and Natalya. Natalya to face Naomi at Summerslam. Naomi just offered a hand of congrats and Natalya just walked off.

***Match 4 —  A.J Styles vs Kevin Owens for the United States belt. My money’s on A.J to keep it. He is more technical than Kevin, Kevin wrestles angry, when things don’t go his way. Kevin trying to set the pace but A.J is taking it to him. Owens with the trash talking as usual. A.J keeps kicking out and Kevin keeps getting even more mad. Owens made sure to get the official in the way. Ref is down and Owens is in the middle of the ring. Well this is crap, supposedly Owens has won the belt back, but I can’t see this ending here. I can’t stand Owens with the belt. It was a good match but it just fizzled out.

***Match 5 — John Cena vs Rusev in a flag match. First one to post their flag at the top of the run on their pedestal in the winner. It’s been a seesaw match, each tried to go for the flag and the other catches them,  John has the STFU in place and Rusev has passed out and even tapped out but its the flag on the pedestal that wins. They are up with the pedestals but where are the flags? Rusev has lost weight since his surgery. John has his flag. After putting Rusev through 2 tables, John plants the flag for victory

***Match 6 —  Samy Zayne vs Mike Kanellis —  Maria got involved and helped Mike win, just like Maryse does with The Miz. Hoping Samy is wise and won’t get caught out again. Same bullshit as last week. Maria in the ring. Samy gets the win.

***Match 7 — Punjabi Prison match — Randy Orton vs Jinder Mahal. Hoping the Singh Brothers can’t get in to help Jinder. It’s a cruel match, steel reinforced bamboo.  I am really tired of Jinder and his arrogance. It is time to return the title back to Randy. The Ref just called for the outer cage to be dropped into place. (this should be the match to steal the show) (this would of been a good match until, the Singh Brothers hid under the ring)  It’s a no D.Q match. Once again its been a dirty title reign with Jinder never winning or legally defending the belt without help. One of the Singh brothers crawled out through the hole in the wall, what a way to ruin what could’ve been a great match. Air Singh Brother just took place as Randy beat his time he let go and landed on the table. The Great Khali has shown up, stopping Randy Orton from winning. They had the chance to make this a great match and its been ruined once again.

I am really disappointed in Match 7, it could’ve been a great match but once again its been trashed. The WWE belt means nothing as long as Jinder Mahal has it.






Match 1 – Jo jo is your announcer – Woman Tag Team with Charlotte and Dana Brooks against  Sasha Banks and HOLY CRAP it’s Baley. It is really time for this story line to change, it’s gotten really old. Here is hoping that the brand split changes things. The Bank Statement win. Baley got rid of Dana and Charlotte tapped out in the middle of the ring.

Match 2 – 6 Man Tag Team – The New Day against The Wyatt family. The Wyatts win this battle.

Match 3- Jo jo is your announcer. The United States Championship on the line with Rusev facing Zack Ryder. Zack had to submit, Rusev keeps the belt. Mo Jo Rollins out to save Zack.

Match 4 – Sami Zayne and Kevin Owens – this could go either way. My opinion is that Sami has to take this one out. They are beating the hell out of each other, leaving it all in the ring.

Match 5- Becky Lynch and Natalya – Becky had to tap but they are both on Smackdown, this one is NOT over by a long shot

Match 6 – Darren Young with Bob Backlund to have off against the Miz for the Intercontinental Championship. Miz keeps the title thanks to Maryse slapping bob Backlund and other events outside the ring.

Match 7 – 6 man tag team – Jo jo is your announcer. John Cena/Enzo and Cass against A.J Styles and Anderson and Gallows. Body flying everywhere. This was a great match – John with Enzo and Cass are your winners.

The highlight reel with Chris Jericho chatting with Randy Orton. Talking about his return match with Brock Lesnar at Summerslam (august 21). (Brock failed a drug test at his last cage match, wondering if this match will take place if his suspension is upheld)

Match 8 – Jojo is your announcer. Shane/Daniel along with Stephanie/Mick are all at ring side for this match. Seth entered first, Roman is next and Dean Ambrose with the belt is last. This is a great match, they are taking it to each other. OMG – Dean Ambrose won it all. YOu should see Stephanie and Mick, Steph is pissed.

That was massive tonight, full of surprises. It will be interesting when the new era opens tomorrow with Raw
