Exciting match announced for WWE Battleground PPV

Published Add your comment

Monday Night Raw was an interesting one last night as Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins discussed Roman Reigns' suspension due to a violation of the Wellness Policy, while The Wyatt Family and New Day continued their feud to an extent.

There was also a new match added to the Battleground Pay-Per-View which is taking place next month.

That encounter will see Kevin Owens facing off against Sami Zayn once again. However, this seems like it might be the final time that the two face off in the WWE for quite a while as it is being billed as an end of the feud matchup.

Highlight Reel

The talented pair were on Chris Jericho's Highlight Reel in-ring talk show during RAW last night and they really had it out on the mic, talking about how their friendship had fallen apart, with Sami going from the best man at Owens' wedding to basically being his mortal enemy inside the squared circle.

Owens went on to add that it was Zayn's fault that their friendship ended, saying that when Zayn went to the WWE a year and a half before he did, completing the lifelong goal that the two had without Owens there with him at the Performance Center.

Zayn put the offer on the table of a feud-ending match and Owens gladly accepted. It is sure to be an absolute barn-burner at Battleground at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C on July 24.

In an amazing twist, that absolutely everyone saw coming, the two ended up working together to deliver a Superkick and a Helluva Kick to Chris Jericho after that weird thing he does about the "Gift of Jericho" annoyed the two former Ring of Honor superstars.

Is that a potential prelude to them becoming a tag team? They've done it before in the indies with amazing results.

Saving Face

The brand split, with SmackDown going live on Tuesday nights and the roster being split in half thanks to the upcoming draft, will probably put paid to the pipe dream of Owens and Zayn teaming up again. It's a high likelihood that the two will end up on opposing rosters, which is why it is being called a "feud-ending match" because the WWE are covering their backs.

Owens and Zayn have faced off once before in the WWE, not including NXT, where Owens won at Payback in what was certainly the match of the night.

The two superstars, who wrestled in PWG, ROH, Chikara and Evolve together know how to put on a show. The fans in attendance at Battleground will certainly be in for a treat.
