The lineup for WWE Battleground on July 23 in Philadelphia looks like it’s nearly complete following this week’s edition of Smackdown Live. Here’s how it looks so far.
WWE Championship Punjabi Prison Match: Jinder Mahal vs. Randy Orton
Flag Match: John Cena vs. Rusev
United States Championship: AJ Styles vs. Kevin Owens
Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Baron Corbin
Smackdown Tag Team Championships: The Usos vs. The New Day
Fatal 5-Way Elimination Match: Charlotte Flair vs. Natalya vs. Becky Lynch vs. Tamina vs. Lana – Winner gets Smackdown Women’s Title Match at SummerSlam
That’s six matches. I think it’s very likely that Sami Zayn vs. Mike (Bennett) Kanellis gets added as well since they’ve been building a storyline in the last three weeks. On this week’s Smackdown, Mike smashed a flower vase over Sami’s head. It would be Mike’s debut on television.
There’s one more week of Smackdown before Battleground, so look for Zayn vs. Kanellis to be added and possibly another match can be part of the kickoff show.
