Before one of their biggest Pay Per Views of the year, WWE hosted Battleground, and what an event it was!
Battleground supplied us with some amazing matches, as well as a massive surprise.
We had Randy Orton against Sheamus, now this match always had the potential to be great, seeing at these two are two of the best in the company. This match did not fail to deliver, Orton played on his hometown crowd creating an electric atmosphere which lasted the rest of the night.

With Orton picking up a victory over Sheamus, I wouldn't be surprised if we see these two going at eachother in a month at SummerSlam.
We had the tag match between the Prime Time Players and The New Day. This was another good tag match between the two teams, with Prime Time Players continuing dominate the division and winning over the crowds.
Then, we had an absolutely phenomenal Divas match, it's been quite a while since a Divas match was one of the most talked about bouts on the card both before and after an event, much less one of the best matches of the night however that is exactly what this was.
Finally it seems like we are going to have a Divas division, not only worth watching, but that can provide entertainment as well as the male superstars.
Then we had Roman Reigns against Bray Wyatt. This was a good match, however it went much as I expected it to, that was until Luke Harper showed up. Hopefully this will signal the reformation of the Wyatt Family in some way.
Match of the Night
Up next we had the match of the night, John Cena VS Kevin Owens.
This was the third time these two had squared off, and I'm not sure how but it managed to come out as the best match of the three.
Over the last few moths we have seen some brilliant matches from these two and this one was no different. They both pulled out moves that we had never seen them use before, a couple of which we may have never even seen from anyone before.
As it seems to go with these two there were a number of moments where everyone watching thought that the match was over, however none more so than when John Cena hit an AA from the top rope, but somehow Owens still kicked out. As Micheal Cole pointed out, we saw a look of disbelief on Cena's face that we haven't seen since his loss to The Rock.
The Big Surprise
Of course we then had the massive shock. The Deadman returns. I didn't see this coming, and it was one of the best moments of WWE television in years.
Before that Brock Lesnar had absolutley decimated Seth Rollins in their match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, he was set to beat Rollins and win the title when The Undertaker returned.
The Undertaker's return was astonishing and is something which I will dedicate an entire article to, so expect that in the not to distant future.
Overall I was happy with the way everything turned out in this PPV, not every match went the way I would have liked, but when they put on a show like that I really don't mind.
What do you guys think? Is the WWE finally headed back in the right direction? Or is this just a flash in the pan?
