With WWE Battleground being this Sunday, it is safe to say that WWE has done a lackluster job of making people wanting to purchase the pay-per-view. The card looks solid for the most part, but the build to most of the matches has left a lot to be desired.
Before Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan battle over the vacant WWE Championship Sunday night, they had one final faceoff on Raw this past week. With Bryan getting the upper hand over Orton on SmackDown, who will emerge victorious when it matters most?
Although he defends his World Heavyweight Championship in a Hardcore match at the event, Alberto Del Rio hasn't seemed intimidated by his upcoming opponent, Rob Van Dam, in any way. With wins over Zack Ryder and Dolph Ziggler this week, could this mean that Del Rio will be standing tall on Sunday?
CM Punk continued his quest this week to get the better of Paul Heyman and his henchmen and found himself getting in the last word on Raw. Will Punk finally be able to exact retribution on Heyman Sunday, or will Ryback and Curtis Axel find a way to cost Punk the win yet again?

Also, an award will be given to the show and Superstar that shined the brightest over the course of the week.
