WWE: Battleground 2017 Predictions

Tonight at Battleground, WWE Champion Jinder Mahal defends his WWE Championship against Randy Orton inside of a Punjabi Prison.

Tye Dillinger vs. Aiden English:
It seems like Dillinger has gotten lost in the shuffle since he got called up. That was always my fear for him when I would watch him in NXT.

I don’t see a scenario where they give a win to Aiden English, ever. So, I have Dillinger winning tonight.
Winner: Tye Dillinger

Sami Zayn vs. Mike Kanellis (w/Maria Kanellis):

Both guys could use the win, but I want to give it to Sami tonight. I think Maria gets involved and involuntarily costs Mike the match.
Also, nobody cares about this, so it should be on the pre-show.
Winner: Sami Zayn

Charlotte Flair vs Becky Lynch vs Natalya vs Tamina vs Lana (Fatal 5-Way Elimination Match):
The winner of this Fatal 5 Way Elimination Match will get a shot at Naomi’s Smackdown Women’s Championship at Summerslam. I think we can go ahead and eliminate Lana, Tamina, and Natalya.

I want to give this win to Becky Lynch, but she seems to be more focused on Carmella and James Ellsworth. I’m giving the win to Charlotte
Winner: Charlotte Flair

Shinsuke Nakamura vs.  Baron Corbin:
I expect Nakamura to win this match. He made it known that he’s coming for AJ Styles and the United States Championship. I think we get that at Summerslam next month.

It doesn’t matter if Corbin loses every match or not, he’s still Mr. Money in The Bank. I don’t see him cashing in on Jinder Mahal because he’s a heel, but you never know what might happen if Cena wins the title at Summerslam.
Winner: Shinsuke Nakamura

John Cena vs. Rusev (Flag Match):
This doesn’t even take much thinking. John Cena is winning the Flag Match and the US will reign supreme over Bulgaria. Rusev continues to hit the wall named John Cena and he’ll be stuck in this same spot until he stops getting booked with Cena.
Winner: John Cena

Smackdown Tag Team Championship — The Usos (c) vs The New Day:
There aren’t any credible tag teams on Smackdown Live. WWE has broken up American Alpha and they’re about to break up the Hype Bros.

I don’t think New Day is winning tonight because they’re not blowing this feud off 4 weeks before Summerslam. I think we get one more match at Summerslam and that ends the feud.
Winners: The Usos

United States Championship — Kevin Owens vs. AJ Styles:

WWE really shocked everyone when AJ Styles won the United States Championsip at a Live Event. I do have AJ retaining tonight because of the potential stuff with Nakamura.

I think for Summerslam we get Nakamura vs AJ vs Kevin Owens for the United States Championship. We get a taste of AJ and Nakamura, but we don’t get the full 1-on-1.
Winner: AJ Styles

WWE Championship — Jinder Mahal (c) vs. Randy Orton (Punjabi Prison):
The Punjabi Prison match makes its return tonight in Philadelphia. Jinder Mahal defends the WWE Championship against The Viper, Randy Orton.

A lot of people don’t like Jinder Mahal as WWE Champion, but get used to it because he’s not losing the title to Randy Orton. Jinder continues his streak of wins tonight.

I have Jinder winning because I believe he’s the person Cena will feud with for Summerslam. I think Cena will allow Jinder to showcase even more of his character.
Winner: Jinder Mahal
