MOC Prediction – WWE Battleground 2017

(Images here-under sourced from WWE.com)

This Sunday we see the return of the Punjabi Prison Match, a match in where you’re not only within a cage, of bamboo, but within a cage, within a cage of bamboo… That’s a lot of bamboo.

Below are my predictions for this Sunday’s PPV and my thoughts on the matches.

Tye Dillinger vs. Aiden English
-KICKOFF MATCH-
Singles Match

These two have had there moments in a WWE ring developing a small feud which merits decent matches. Tye has garnered the upper hand on many occasions and has captured multiple wins over the drama-king Aiden English, but in all honest there has to be a climax in their story where the bad-guy gets the upper hand. See what I did there? In my opinion Aiden English needs a win now that he’s a singles competitor, and even though he gotten them on Smackdown, he needs a bigger one during a bigger event, so in my opinion I feel English comes out on top of this one.

MOC Prediction: Aiden English


Breezango Prepare To Close The Case At WWE Battleground

Not really sure how to address this, but Breezango plan to get to the bottom of the case in who’s been attacking and ruining their Fashion office these past few weeks. These guys have been making probably some of the best segments I’ve seen in a while and frankly their killing it. As for attackers, I really couldn’t tell you who I think it is but some ideas I have are:

  1. Ascension
  2. The Hype Bros
  3. The Colons
  4. Dolph Ziggler

In all honesty, I hope it’s Dolph just upset that he couldn’t be apart of this beautiful crew of men.


Charlotte vs. Natalya vs. Tamina vs. Lana vs. Becky Lynch
-5-Way Elimination Match To Determine #1 Contender For Naomi’s Women’s Championship-
5-Way Elimination Match

The women in WWE have been doing a great job at delivering some intense hard hitting matches. This will be no different. Now i’m not going to list who I believe will be eliminated 1st, 2nd and so on. But I’ll give my thoughts on who I feel should deserve it, and in all honesty I’m going with Natalya. She’s been on the short list on so many occasions when it comes to the WWE title, and the woman can deliver a good match depending on her opponent. I feel that giving her an opportunity a the title will at least give her a bit more backing to the ass-kicker she could be.

MOC Prediction: Natalya 

And if I had to guess, I would say her and Charlotte are the final two competitors.


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

It was a bit shocking when I heard AJ Styles won the US title during WWE’s live event at MSG, but then again not really. WWE usually likes to do utilize that venue for some surprises. But this has only developed a feud which has been fun to watch and enjoyable to experience. Owens in my opinion works with everyone, and when he’s pinned with another guy who can deliver in the ring, it’s just a present to experience. I feel this match will deliver on many bases and I honestly feel that Owens will come out on top re-capturing that WWE US title. Only to elevate this feud to another rematch at Summerslam.

MOC Prediction: Kevin Owens (New US Champion)


Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Baron Corbin
Singles Match

Shinsuke vs. Baron in my opinion is just a placement feud to give Baron something to do while we wait for him to cash in the Money in the Bank case. Which wouldn’t surprise me if it happened during Battleground. I feel though that WWE will keep Nakamura strong and will have go over, so at a later time he could challenge for the WWE title if Baron wins it and can claim that because he’s beaten him before, he can do it again. So for me I’ll say Nakamura goes over.

If WWE wanted to keep Baron looking like a monster he could generate the loss by getting DQ’ed by using a weapon or a low blow. Take the sleazy heel way out.

MOC Prediction: Shinsuke Nakamura via DQ


The Usos (c) vs. New Day
-WWE Smackdown Live Tag Team Championship-
Tag Team Match

I won’t lie, I’m enjoying the new Usos gimmick. It seems more genuine and it appears that their having a good time with it. They can be taken more seriously than before, and seem to have gotten better on the mic. New Day though are always enjoyable and yes some can argue that they’ve become stale, but to be honest they still put a smile on your face and mine, so i’ll leave it at that.

When it comes to this match I feel Usos will still come out on top. Either they win cleanly, or they run an angle where the ref confuses one of the Uso brothers, and gives New Day the 3 count, but reverts the win after discovering that the illegal man was pinned. Usos take advantage and pick up the win again. This at least leaves room for once again another match down the line, that is if WWE wants to keep this feud going leading to Summerslam.

MOC Prediction: The Usos (retain)


John Cena vs. Rusev
Flag Match

John Cena has gone on record saying that his time in WWE is numbered. Reaching his 40’s he knows that his time is coming up and wants to work with those that he believes can make the biggest changes in the company. That should tell you something about Rusev. This flag match is good for cheap pops, as Cena will try to the US title and Rusev for the Bulgarian flag. Though, as much as I want to say Cena will win, I’m cheering for Rusev. The man needs heat, and being grabbing the Bulgarian flag waving it over a downed Cena will generate great heat for him. To be honest he could also grab the us title, cover Cena with it and just stand above him waving the Bulgarian flag. Again, this match works well for cheap heat and frankly I feel Rusev needs it the most.

MOC Prediction: Rusev


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

The return of the Punjabi Prison Match and the main event for the night. This match positions Jinder to not receive any help from the Singh Brothers, at least at the beginning so it could position Randy to win. But in my opinion I feel Jinder will still come out on top with the potential for Baron to interfere at the end and cash in the MITB against Jinder.

Not much to say about this match, but I know it’ll be a aggressive match between the two with the Singh brothers getting involved somewhere down the line. But as stated, I believe Baron will get involved and potentially win the WWE Championship leaving Battleground.

MOC Prediction: Jinder Mahal (retains) 
MOC Prediction: Baron Corbin cashes in (New WWE Champion)
