WWE presents Battleground this weekend, the pay-per-view that will remembered historically as the event that marked the end of WWE's current era.

Feuds will end and many rivalries will reach their climax since the WWE draft has split up many of the teams that are included in matches on Sunday night, but one feud that will continue is Charlotte and Sasha Banks.

Both women were drafted onto the Raw roster on Tuesday night, along with Dana Brooke, which means all three women are on the same roster, making this one of only two matches on the night that will be able to continue afterwards. 

Charlotte is currently in breach of her 30 day title defence clause which means WWE must have a big plan up their sleeves if they have opted for a tag team match at the second consecutive pay-per-view rather than a Women's Championship match. 

Here are the top five candidates to partner Sasha on Sunday night with some much more surprising than others.

5. PAIGE

The Diva of Tomorrow has been missing from WWE TV since she lost her Women's Championship match to Charlotte on the episode of Raw following Money in the Bank. Paige has had her fair share of personal problems outside of WWE with her relationship with Alberto Del Rio, but it doesn't explain why she has been off WWE TV for over a month. 

Paige being drafted to Raw is a big hint to the fact that she could return to partner Sasha on Sunday night.

She has history with Charlotte and all four women are former NXT superstars, which means this would be the perfect opportunity for Paige to make her WWE return. 

4. TRISH STRATUS

The record setting seven time Women's Champion has been outspoken recently about the fact that she would return to WWE for a one off match under the right circumstances. Trish has returned for single matches on previous occasions and the likes of Sasha and Charlotte would definitely benefit from someone of her calibre being involved in the match. 

Whilst it is highly unlikely that she is the women's wrestler that WWE are building this entire match around, it would be incredible to see Trish back in a WWE ring, even if it is just for one match.

3. NIA JAX 

Perhaps the most dominant female wrestler to set foot in WWE, the Samoan superstar took a huge step in her WWE career when she was drafted to Raw on Tuesday night. Whilst she has made an impact in her time in NXT, many thought that she would remain in the development territory for a while longer. 

Nia is obviously going to be pushed to the top of Raw because she is part of the same family as Roman Reigns and The Rock which means that WWE will do all they can to put her in the right spots. Could this happen on Sunday night, could she switch to being a face superstar after a successful run in NXT? Stranger things have happened. 

2. BAYLEY 

The former NXT Women's Champion was overlooked by the WWE draft as Stephanie and Shane took just about every other female wrestler from the brand except the one that everyone wanted. There has to be a reason why WWE haven't included Bayley in the draft and this could be because she is set to be brought up by Sasha as her partner instead. 

Sasha and Bayley were on good terms when she left NXT and despite the fact that Sasha has stated over and over that Bayley isn't her partner, it seems that she could be the most viable option.

The main roster needs Bayley, and if this a the loophole that will see her finally promoted, then I'm sure the WWE Universe would be ok with it.

1. NIKKI BELLA

The former WWE Divas Champion has stated that she has been given the green light to return to ring competition and could easily be the one to partner Sasha on Sunday night. Nikki has been out of action since she dropped her Divas Championship to Charlotte at Night of Champions last year. 

Nikki lost the subsequent rematch and then headed of for career threatening neck surgery, luckily she has recovered much faster than many predicted and could make her return as early as Battleground.

The crowd reaction would be incredible if it was the longest reigning divas champion who walked through the curtain on Sunday night, but it would be interesting to see if she and Sasha could co-exist.
