How predictable was WWE Battleground 2016?

Let's break down the results of the Cageside Seats staff predictions for WWE Battleground 2016.

WWE's Bayley mindset is exactly as it should be

Last night, it finally happened. She lived her dream, and in effect we all did, as Bayley bounced to the ring to tag up with Sasha Banks. She's headed back to NXT, and this time, Vince has it right.

It finally happened and, well, it was kind of disappointing. Plus, other stuff from Battleground!

Bayley says her appearance was a 'one-time thing'

She's headed back to NXT after doing her friend Sasha a solid. But don't worry, Cagesiders, we have a feeling she'll be back before too long.

Another show in the books!

SmackDown (and Dean Ambrose) keep WWE title

Ambrose retained over his Shield brothers, but WWE was more interested in hyping their brand split.

Orton returns at Battleground, shoots on Lesnar

This was really something.


Enzo & Cass are really over, and John Cena & AJ Styles each have a pinfall victory over the other.

Darren Young disqualified, Miz is still Intercontinental champ

Bob Backlund ruined it!

Not enough straight fire

All of her passion couldn't get the job done for Becky Lynch tonight against Natalya.

The feud is over... for now.

Sami Zayn got win in this chapter of Zayn/Owens, but the book surely isn't over.

Rusev beats down Ryder, Mojo Rawley shows up hyped

The Hype Bros look like they could be a thing on the main roster now, but Zack Ryder had to lose to Rusev in his US title match first.

Fear wins

Xavier Woods stood up to his demons, but couldn't defeat them. Sister Abigail provided a win for the Wyatt Family over the New Day as they go their separate ways.

This is fitting. And will make you happy forever.
