WWE Battleground 2016 match card, rumors

The next pay-per-view (PPV) on the WWE schedule is the Battleground show set to take place on Sun., July 24, 2016, at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C. This will be the fourth event to use the name as the annual July showcase heading into SummerSlam.

We're still four weeks out from showtime and only the main event has been announced for the show:

- Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns (WWE world heavyweight championship)

Ambrose cashed in the Money in the Bank contract to win the title just after Rollins defeated Reigns for it in the main event of the Money in the Bank PPV. The next night, Reigns and Rollins went to a double count out in a number one contender match in the main event of Raw, leading to both getting booked in a triple threat to headline this show. It was revealed just one day later that Reigns had failed a Wellness test and he's been suspended for 30 days. He will be back in time for this event, however, and he's still being advertised, so unless something changes he's working the match.

Nothing else has been made official but some rumors include:

- John Cena vs. AJ Styles
- Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn
- New Day vs. The Wyatt Family
- Charlotte & Dana Brooke vs. Sasha Banks & Paige
- Natalya vs. Becky Lynch
- Sheamus vs. Apollo Crews
- The Club vs. The Usos
