My Thoughts on WWE Battleground 2016

WWE Battleground 2016 Results

First, Sasha Banks’ mystery tag team partner turned out to be Bayley making her debut on WWE’s main roster. They would then go on to defeat WWE Women’s Champion Charlotte & Dana Brooke. I had a feeling that Bayley would be the mystery partner. One question that remains is what show is Bayley on, now that both Raw and Smackdown Live have separate brands. Well, for at least one night, the WWE Universe got to witness the formation of a new tag team known as The Boss & Hug Connection (Sasha Banks & Bayley).

 

Also, during what was being dubbed the final confrontation between friends-turned-enemies Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens, I noticed that towards the end of the match, both Zayn and Owens appeared to be showing some sort of compassion towards one another. Although Zayn was victorious, I cannot help but wonder if not only the rivalry has been put to rest once and for all, but I am also wondering if the two will reconcile and become tag team partners, which means that Owens would turn face. Both men were drafted to Raw, so it will be interesting to see where things go from here.

The Rhodes Brothers Will Team Up for the First Time Ever

rhodes2

On this week’s September 30, 2013, edition of WWE Raw, abusive power couple WWE Executive Vice President of Creative and WWE Chief Operating Officer Triple H invited the entire Rhodes Family (NXT General Mananger and WWE Hall of Famer Dusty and his sons Dustin “Goldust” & Cody) to Raw for a “business proposition”. Both Goldust and Cody were recently uncerimoniously fired from WWE by the abusive power couple. The power couple ended up proposing a non-title tag team match between The Rhodes Brothers and current WWE Tag Team Champions and Shield members Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns at the upcoming WWE Pay-Per-View event, Battleground. The stipulation of the match would be that if The Rhodes Brothers beat The Shield, then they will be rehired; however, if The Rhodes Brothers lose, then in addition to their father, Dusty, being fired, niether members of The Rhodes Family would ever get to work for the WWE again, as well. The Rhodes Family decided to accept the challenge. Personally, I have always wondered whether or not The Rhodes Brothers would ever team together. Believe it or not, almost everytime people have seen them cross paths with one another, they were at eachothers’ throats. People …

Was John “Bradshaw” Layfield Part of the Plot?

Last month at WWE SummerSlam, then-WWE Champion John Cena defended his championship against Daniel Bryan with WWE Chief Operating Officer Triple H serving as special guest referee. All three of these men were faces at that time and Cena and Bryan still are. In the end, it was Bryan who beat Cena to become the new WWE Champion. After the match, Cena was a sport and shook Bryan’s hand and also shook Triple H’s hand for calling the match straight down the line. After Cena had left the ring, Bryan began celebrating his victory; however, the celebration was cut short by Randy Orton, who came out to cash in his Money In the Bank WWE Championship contract, which consisted of a guarenteed opportunity at the championship at anytime and anywhere. I would also like to point out that Orton was a face at the time as well. Then, Triple H shocked the entire world when he hit Bryan with his signature maneuver, the Pedigree. Then, Orton cashed in his championship opportunity and Triple H appointed himself as special guest referee for the match. Once the ring bell was rung to begin the match, Orton picked up Triple H’s scraps and …
