WWE Battleground 2015 match card: Seth Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar preview

The match

Brock Lesnar finally gets his rematch against Seth Rollins for the WWE world heavyweight championship in the main event of tonight's Battleground pay-per-view (PPV) at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri.

The players

Seth Rollins: The squirmy, brash, over-confident champion who doesn't need any help but always gets it anyway.

Brock Lesnar: The mammoth monster built like a brick shithouse who moves like a cat and destroys everything in his path.

The story

It hasn't been the most exciting build to a major title match in WWE history but they've actually told a really great story here. I'm going to give the floor to Cagesider the_hbomb, who perfectly encapsulated this in a comment on a recent article:

A few weeks ago they established that if given a lot of help, Seth Rollins has the ability to take down Lesnar; he was mortal. Despite this, Rollins knew that his success was reliant on having at least one other person in his corner, and after J&J were taken out last week, Rollins was understandably uneasy tonight. The promo Rollins cut after Kane was taken out was perhaps my favorite one of his career, a desperate and almost delusional plea almost as much to convince himself as well as everyone else that he had something inside of him that could do what Cena, Undertaker, and Roman Reigns couldn't. He then showed something that he'd never done before, assaulting the completely defenseless Kane.

Desperation is a stinky cologne but what happens when you box an animal into a corner?

What to expect

A good match.

A bad finish.

Interference, because of course.

A certain someone might show up to wreak havoc.

Suplex City (bitch).
