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 just two weeks out from showtime and here's how the card looks:

- 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 wasn't pulled from the match. Instead, his failure has been used as fodder for Rollins' promos.

- Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn

The sell job they've done for this is that it will be their final encounter after a decade of feuding with each other. You can count on that being wrong, but the match being good.

- John Cena & Enzo & Big Cass vs. The Club

AJ Styles, Karl Anderson, and Luke Gallows have made a habit of beating up John Cena. Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady had enough of it while also deciding to make a statement themselves and made the save last week on Raw.

- Becky Lynch vs. Natalya

An inadvertent bump into each other at Money in the Bank led to Nattie snapping and the two have been battling back-and-forth ever since.

Other matches expected for the card include New Day vs. The Wyatt Family, Rusev vs. Zack Ryder, and Miz vs. the winner of the battle royal on Raw tomorrow night in Detroit.
