In mere hours, on Sunday night, WWE will present its first annual Battleground pay-per-view event, live from the First Niagara Center in Buffalo at 8 p.m. ET.
This will be the second of three events to be held within a two-month span, meaning that the buyrate of the show isn't expected to be strong. This especially rings true when you factor in the build (or lack thereof) it has received in recent weeks, leading viewers to believe this event is not worth watching.
The main event will see Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan do battle over the WWE Championship. Bryan has captured the gold on the past two pay-per-views, so will it be third time's the charm for the bearded grappler on Sunday night?
Rob Van Dam will receive one last chance at the World Heavyweight Championship in a Hardcore match against Alberto Del Rio. Will RVD finally prove his worth against Del Rio, or will the unstoppable reign of the Mexican aristocrat continue?
CM Punk will look to exact revenge on his former friend Paul Heyman by taking on Ryback at the event. Will Punk receive the retribution he has been longing for, or will Ryback score his first-ever victory over the Voice of the Voiceless?
Here, I will provide my personal preview, prediction and potential of every match on the advertised card.
