According to Cageside Seats, WWE is looking at putting John Cena in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match against Jinder Mahal when they head to Brooklyn next month.

Ronda Rousey Will Likely Wrestle Top Female Star at WrestleMania 34

It looks like former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey will be making her way to WWE in the near-future.


According to Cageside Seats, Rousey will likely appear at WrestleMania 34, where she’ll have a match with SmackDown Live’s Charlotte Flair.

Rousey has only made one in-ring appearance for WWE, which took place back at WrestleMania 31. Since then, she hasn’t done anything with them, despite the fact that they’re clearly interested in signing her.

The ex-UFC champ has lost both of her last two fights via TKO, and at this point, it doesn’t look like she’s going to fight again. She needs a new gig, she’s clearly a huge wrestling fan, and, as previously mentioned, WWE is interested in signing her. So, don’t be surprised if you see Ronda Rousey on the WWE roster at some point next year.

Watch: Brock Lesnar Vs. Seth Rollins at Battleground 2015

[This post contains video, click to play]


As of this writing, this is the one and only Seth Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar match, and the match itself was far less memorable than it should’ve been. In fact, it didn’t even have a finish, as The Undertaker just appeared in the ring, while Seth, who was the champion at the time, disappeared after the lights came back on.

Another Lesnar vs. Rollins match hasn’t even been teased in the last two years, but unless Lesnar leaves WWE for the UFC following WrestleMania 34, the match happen again.

WWE Battleground 2017: Official Preview

Show Detail
DATE AND LOCATION:

SUNDAY, JUL 23 | 8 ET/5 PT

WELLS FARGO CENTER PHILADELPHIA, PA

Tomorrow, SmackDown LIVE will host the WWE Battleground 2017 pay-per-view, Live Results Coverage On WrestleNews.Net at 8 ET/5 PT. The special event features the return of the Punjabi Prison Match.

WWE Championship Punjabi Prison Match
Jinder Mahal (c) vs. Randy Orton

Brace yourself for the return of the daunting Punjabi Prison Match when Randy Orton looks for retribution and his 14th World Title against WWE Champion Jinder Mahal at WWE Battleground.

At WWE Money in the Bank, Mahal’s faithful cohorts, The Singh Brothers, not only cost Orton his chance to regain the WWE Title, but also attacked his father, WWE Hall of Famer “Cowboy” Bob Orton. Orton threatened the titleholder’s family and everybody else who would dare to get in his way until he received another WWE Championship Match against The Modern-Day Maharaja.

Though SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon agreed that The Viper deserved another title opportunity. The Modern-Day-Maharaja declared that he would give WWE’s Apex Predator a taste of his homeland by resurrecting the infamous Punjabi Prison!

With Randy Orton and Jinder Mahal locked inside the dreaded Punjabi Prison, there is no way to predict who will walk out with the WWE Championship.

 

Flag Match
John Cena vs. Rusev

At WWE Battleground, John Cena will defend America’s honor when he goes to war against Rusev in a Flag Match tomorrow.

the 16-time World Champion was only seeing red when Rusev suddenly barged into the mix to insult the USA in front of one of the most vigilant WWE patriots and the WWE Universe.  While The Leader of the Cenation was ready to throw down right there and then, The Bulgarian Brute made it clear he would battle on his terms at WWE Battleground.

In this explosive Flag Match, the American and Bulgarian flags will be set above the turnbuckles on opposite sides of the ring and the first Superstar to retrieve their country’s flag will be the winner.

SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match
The Usos (c) vs. The New Day

For The New Day are getting a brand-spanking new opportunity to capture The Usos’ SmackDown Tag Team Championship at WWE Battleground tomorrow.

At the height of their previous title showdown at WWE Money in the Bank, the resilient Kofi Kingston & Big Elooked incredibly strong against their tough Samoan adversaries. the “Power of Positivity” refuses to be denied, and the longest-reigning Tag Team Champions in WWE history are coming back for more! Can The Usos fend off their rejuvenated foes to maintain their grasp on the gold? Or will Day One finally give way to a New Day?

Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Baron Corbin

Baron Corbin has gone out of his way to show he isn’t afraid of Shinsuke Nakamura. At WWE Battleground, that all might change.

Mr. Money in the Bank will do battle with The King of Strong Style on the SmackDown LIVE-exclusive pay-per-view, bringing their frothing rivalry to a head after weeks of assaults by The Lone Wolf — including one that nearly took Nakamura out of the Money in the Bank Ladder Match.

With months of bad blood and Corbin’s blatant disregard for his opponent, the two Superstars finally have an opportunity to settle their differences, but don’t expect anything approaching civility in this one.

United States Championship Match
AJ Styles (c) vs. Kevin Owens

At WWE Battleground, a still-seething Kevin Owens will challenge United States Champion AJ Styles in a rematch for the prestigious star-spangled title.

in a stunning turn of events, The Phenomenal One dethroned The New Face of America in a championship bout at a Live Event at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. Will Styles’ victory alter the way each Superstar approaches the United States Title showdown at the July 23 pay-per-view?

the conflict between Styles and Owens has become increasingly personal over recent weeks. Who will walk out of WWE Battleground the United States Champion?

Five-Way Elimination Match to determine Naomi’s opponent at SummerSlam

Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch vs. Natalya vs. Tamina vs. Lana

Five of the top Superstars in the SmackDown LIVE Women’s division will square off in a Five-Way Elimination Match, with the winner going on to SummerSlam to challenge Naomi in the first-ever SmackDown Women’s Title Match in SummerSlam history.

With so much talent surging and SummerSlam on the horizon, SmackDown LIVE management decided that the fairest way to determine Naomi’s opponent at SummerSlam would be to put five of the roster’s best on the Battleground (literally) and see who prevailed.

Will Charlotte’s Flair big-match pedigree pay dividends as she continues her quest to become the first Superstar in history to hold the Divas Championship as well as both the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Titles? Or will Becky Lynch or Natalya be able to use their years of experience as to elevate themselves toward SummerSlam glory? And will the seemingly brewing alliance between Tamina and Lana play a factor in the contest?

 

Sami Zayn vs. Mike Kanellis

Though first impressions of Mike Kanellis suggest that he is much more of a lover than a fighter, he will be out to teach Sami Zayn.

Since emerging at the WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view, Maria Kanellis and her husband Mike have been all about professing the “power of love” with constant public displays of their affection. After Zayn apologized not once but twice, however, he finally decided enough was enough and refused to continue saying he was sorry.

After being assaulted by Maria & Mike, Zayn opted to go head-to-head against the up-and-coming Superstar in his opponent’s debut match on the July 18 edition of SmackDown LIVE.

After what transpired on the blue brand, the two competitors will square off in a heated rematch at WWE Battleground.

WWE Battleground Kickoff Match
Tye Dillinger vs. Aiden English

At WWE Battleground, The Perfect 10 will once again attempt to topple The Drama King, when Tye Dillingerbattles Aiden English at WWE Battleground Kickoff

English is as dangerous as he is emotional. Could Sunday be the day that The Artiste finally brings the curtain down on Dillinger’s fairytale story?

Ok ok I did it! I know the wrestling gets a lot of the attention but a lot of fans are there for the storyline developments. That means there are several moments where you’ll see a change of course, often due to someone admitting they did something. It might be good and it might be bad but they’re often jarring.

WWE has released a new Top Ten video of the most shocking confessions in company history. These range from people admitting to lies or admitting that they were in cahoots with someone behind the scenes. There’s a wide variety of choices in the countdown and they go through a long stretch of history. Here’s the countdown:

Opinion: There was only one real option for the top spot on this list and it’s very nice to see that they got it right. I mean, going with Vince McMahon as the top spot isn’t the biggest surprise in the world but it’s nice to see them having some common sense and going with the best possible option. It was a great moment, assuming you ignore how crazy the story was in the first place.

What would you have as #1 on the list? What did WWE forget to add? Let us know in the comments below.

Miz Says Roman Has ‘It’ Factor, Ryback Make Fun Of Women’s Wrestlers (Video)

Earlier The Miz spoke about Roman Reigns, On Brock Lesnar  and more with an interview with DC 101 Here are highlights:

On his next acting project: “I think WWE’s a great training ground for that, and it’s helped me with my career in doing so much and I plan on doing more. You’ll just have to keep posted on the next thing that I’m doing because I have something in the works. It’s going to be pretty big and a lot of fun but I haven’t dotted the I’s yet. I don’t want to get the word out too soon but definitely keep an eye out. You’ll see what I’m up to in a few months.”

On if Roman Reigns has the IT factor:

“Right now, he’s a really big good guy or a really big bad guy, it all depends on the way you look at it. He’ll walk out and get booed out of the building or he’ll walk out and get cheered out of the building. But the one thing that Roman Reigns has is the “it factor” and he’s a bonafide star who can go in a WWE ring.”

On why Brock Lesnar is so successful:

“There’s a reason they call Brock Lesnar ‘The Beast’. This guy is to be reckoned with. He is a person who has been successful in WWE, he’s been successful in UFC, anything he steps into, he’s a bonafide star. So when you go up against him, you’re going up against someone and it could be your last match.”

How was the Audience for the July 20 “Impact Wrestling”?

It couldn’t keep going forever. Global Force Wrestling’s “Impact Wrestling” has been on quite a roll as of late with their audience growing almost every single week. That’s a very good sign as they begin their run under the new banner. The question was could they keep it up another week.


The answer is not quite, though it wasn’t a huge crash. According to Showbuzz Daily, this week’s episode of “Impact Wrestling” drew 322,000 viewers, down 14% from last week’s 374,000, which had been the high point for the year so far. The latest episode was centered around Alberto El Patron and LAX, with the showdown between the two ending the show.

[This post contains video, click to play]

Opinion: While down, these are still solid numbers and Global Force Wrestling should be pleased. The question though is how well can they do in the future. These numbers are solid for the company’s standards but there is a ton of room to grow, which is the best possibility the company has at this point.
