WWE Battleground 2016

Great hype video for The Club vs. Cena and the Certified Gs on the pre-show. Not much to the panel beyond Cesaro trying to redo his post-SD promo while dressed like Agent 47. The Raw GM is in Christmas themed socks in July. Mick and Bryan do a Q and A and Mick says you should play a hot hand when you get one, and cites himself and Bryan as examples. Mick wants Terry as an advisor

Backlund works out and D-Young does his best to keep up. Usos are out to face Breezango, who get a nice pop. Not really much to this match. It's a basic Raw death slot match, only with Mauro making things seem almost important. Breeze eats a superkick and a splash, but Tyler counters the splash with knees to the gut and wins! The pre-show ends with an epic Shield history video package, with Heyman putting them over as the best three man team in history.
Another epic video with everyone standing by their flags starts the show off. Women's tag starts things off, with Charlotte and Dana coming out first. HUGE pop for Sasha! IT'S....BAYLEY! Bayley gets a huge pop and they do the fan hug bit before the heels jump them. Sasha and Charlotte start and Sasha drops herself on her head with a rana off the top. Charlotte gives Sasha another wedgie on the floor. Dana dominates, but BAYLEY GETS THE HOT TAG! Cole's rote description of Bayley hurts her so much. Double down from Bayley and Dana after a double lariat. Sasha comes in and hits the double knees on Charlotte for 2. Dana tries to save, but Sasha beats the champ with the Bank statement. Odd to not have Bayley win - she really didn't shine much here, and JBL saying it was a one match favor doesn't help her.
New Day vs. Wyatts is up next. Rowan does rest holds on the mat. Things pick up with Bray hitting a senton. E injects some big-time impact and speed, since he doesn't have to play face in peril. Hilarious bit where Kofi ducks a corner boot and Braun launches himself over the top. Bray avoids Kofi's kick and goes for Abigail, but Woods saves him. He's in a trance and Kofi eats a uranage, but Woods comes to live and hits a big running dropkick to Bray. Woods hits a ropewalk splash and then superkicks Rowan! He gets caught by Braun, but E spears him to the floor and lands right on his head! Bray hits Abigail on Woods to win it.
Lana gives Rusev his usual intro, and then Ryder comes out in an American flag getup. Ryder starts things off strong, but Rusev kicks his head off with a spinkick. Rusev drops his gut on the barricade with a gordbuster. Missile dropkick off the barricade by Zack. Ryder eats the kick and Ryder taps to the bend-back Accolade. Ryder eats more kicks, but Mojo makes the save. He actually sends Rusev packing - so that built him up nicely.

Sami-Owens is up, with Sami coming out first. Cole talks about how close they are that their gear has the same color scheme. Sami eats a giant toss into the barricade before he bullies him on the mat and then in the corner with chops. Owens eats a brief beating and Sami goes for a flip, but Owens grabs him - so Sami goes for the Daniels moonsault and botches it horribly landing on his shoulder. Sami recovers and gets the blue thunder bomb for 2. They go up top for a superplex and KO tells him to hold on before KO gets tossed off.
 Sami rolls off and eats a superkick for 2. Crossface on the shoulder! Buckle exploder by Sami, but Owens ducks the Helluva kick. Owens eats a sick APRON BRAINBUSTER! Owens superkicks him to nix the torpedo DDT and the cannonball hits. Bullfrog splash gets 2. Sani gets a tornado DDT and avoids the powerbomb to get a half and half suplex for 2! Crowd goes nuts for all this. Sami runs in for the kick, but eats a powerbomb for 2.5 because Sami got his foot on the rope! Owens slaps him, so Sami responds in kind, hits the exploder, the half and half and hits the kick! But he holds him up to put him in the corner and hit another one for the win! This ruled! Sami is in tears!

Kickoff panel filler. Nattie vs. Becky is up. Nattie plays chickenshit heel before getting a cheapshot to the knee. Nattie does a ton of moves to the knee, but the Bexploder gets 2. Nattie gets the sharpshooter, but Becky makes it to the ropes. Becky gets a one-legged missile dropkick for 2. Nattie gets the sharpshooter again, sits down on it mid-ring and wins. Simple, but good match. Bryan talks to Dean about being drafted to SD because he's the best.
 Darren Young comes out to get his first singles title. Backlund's facial expressions are AMAZING. Young outwrestles Miz, but Miz gets an edge with the dreaded chinlock. Darren lands a series of lariats before back suplexing him on the apron for 2. Maryse slaps Bob, who at 66 takes a perfect back bump on the floor before flipping out and taking his shirt off - but not his suspenders and then D-Young locks a bodyscissors cobra clutch on the floor to get a double countout.

Cena and the Gs face The Club. Faces come out first, followed by the heels. The Club going to Raw and SD is sold as the group expanding and not splitting. Karl and Luke have new black and red gear. AJ busts out a new Club logo version of his NJPW gear - which looked amazing! Enzo's soccer mom line got a chant for AJ here. Dropdown/leapfrog/dropkick hits 'Zo. AJ tags out when Cass comes in, before Karl eats a beating. Air Enzo on the pile on the floor. Karl and Luke bully 'Zo on the mat. AJ lands some nice round kicks to the ribs. Enzo is a fantastic babyface in peril here. Karl hits a running backbreaker to the heel corner. 

AJ gets backdropped to the floor, but Luke goes after 'Zo and he eats the post. Cena and AJ go at it, but AJ avoids the AA with a flip. Anderson spinebuster by Karl, but he eats a fallway slam by Cass. Luke hits a sitout powerbomb, but eats an accidental P1 Forearm for 2. Anderson spinebusters Cena into the announce table, but 'Zo hits a flying DDT off the steps. Cass eats the Magic Killer, but Enzo comes in and wants a 1 on 2 battle. Enzo avoids a shoulder charge, so it's down to just Luke and Enzo. Enzo runs into a superkick, but Cena's legal and avoids a charge. Cena goes for a Super AA to AJ, but AJ avoids it until he eats it and that's the end.
 Jericho and Orton are out to chat. Jericho runs down the brand extension and says that Mick is under the control of Stephanie - one of his favorites ever, and always has been since he came into WWE. That was great, and Jericho runs a Brock hype video. Orton gets a glorious RKOOuttaNowhere and does a little curtsey. The epic pre-show video airs for the main event. In a goofy bit, the Raw crew watches in their red locker room. Ditto the blue SD locker room. GMs and Commisioners come out first and then Seth debuts MORE NEW GEAR - shiny black and gun metal that looks amazing.  BOO DOG comes down. Great shot of Roman posing and fans booing. Dean gets a nice pop.
Dean goes for a flash pin on Roman and gets 2. Roman tosses Seth around on the floor before Dean dives out. Seth runs after Roman, but he's backdropped into the timekeeper's area. Dean does a table to table dive to them both. Flying elbow to Roman gets 2. Seth hits a High Fly Flow to Dean as he rolls out of the 2 for 2. Roman hits back to back Superman punches! Dean and Seth prevent the spear, but Seth eats another Superman punch and Roman eats the Nigel lariat. Roman avoids the Shield powerbomb, but eats the suicide dive before Seth hits both with a flip dive. Roman eats the Shield powerbomb through the SAT. Seth hits Dean with a chair to the back to play off the breakup, which Cole hammers home a bit too much. Superplex>Falcon Arrow hits Dean for 2! Roman hits a kick to the gut and steals Ibushi's sitout Last Ride for 2. Roman goes for the splash mountain, but Dean gets 2 off a backslide. Roman Superman punches Dean to the floor, and Seth hits a pedigree for 2.9! Buckle bumb is absorbed, and he gets the Superman punch and spear - but Dean hits Dirty Deeds and wins!
