Buckle up viewers of Eeeeeeeeee-TV, because WWE Battleground will most likely be the final big event you get to see now that Supersport has managed to cash in its money in the bank contract. Battleground’s fifth appearance in the WWE Universe has one massive draw this Sunday in the form of the most bizarre match ever devised: The Punjabi Prison Match.
It’s only the third time that this match has ever been televised, hailing from an era when the Undertaker faced off against the Ghreat Khali back at the 2006 Great American Bash and again at No Mercy 2007 when Batista would face the Indian titan. The rules for this match up are easy enough: Both entrants have to find their way out of the kennel from hell, using any means at their disposal to escape. No disqualifications, no holds barred and plenty of bamboo to the spine.
Should be interesting to see how Randy Orton and Jinder Mahal (I’M NOT FROM HERE! I HAVE MY OWN CUSTOMS!) make use of Satan’s structure to shave a few years off of each other’s wrestling career. Here’s the full match card for this Sunday:
- WWE Champion Jinder Mahal vs. Randy Orton (Punjabi Prison Match)
- John Cena vs. Rusev (Flag Match)
- SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos vs. The New Day
- Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Baron Corbin
- United States Champion AJ Styles vs. Kevin Owens
- Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch vs. Natalya vs. Tamina vs. Lana (Five-Way Elimination Match to determine Naomi’s opponent at SummerSlam)
- Sami Zayn vs. Mike Kanellis
- Breezango prepare to close the case at WWE Battleground
- Tye Dillinger vs. Aiden English (Kickoff Match)
Will we see the feud between the Usos and the New Day escalate to classic levels? Can the Smackdown Women’s division be as interesting as RAW and NXT’s use of female in-ring talent? Will I manage to escape the long arm of the fashion police known as Breezango for daring to wear clashing colours? The answers to all of those questions, is a very definite maybe.
