Re: WWE Battleground 2017

that raises a question - what's the lowest rated 30 minute+ PPV match in history?

I'd have to think that rarely do you get ** or worse matches going 30 mins, no?

Daenarys is building a better stable than Jinder.

Re: WWE Battleground 2017

Really, it's remarkable how bad this PPV was given all the talent on SD's roster. I don't know how they did it.

Hopefully it was just a temporary lull before Summerslam, but not optimistic since Jinder is still champ (and sucks).

Yeah I think business won't pick up until Baron Corbin takes the top strap

Hart Family vs. Shawn Michaels/Knights from Survivor Series 1993 topped 30 minutes and was one of the worst matches I've ever seen. Meltzer gave it *1/2 and I consider that to be far too generous.

Looking around and even the sites more favorable to WWE are calling this the worst PPV in several years. Glad Game of Thrones is a thing.

Re: WWE Battleground 2017

It was pretty bad. Watch the tag match that opened, that was pretty good.

I didn't think it was possible for KO and AJ to have a meh match, but they managed it.

The flag match and the main event were pretty awful.

Was going to say Roman/HHH but that was only 27 minutes. And Meltzer surprisingly gave it 3.25 stars. I think the consensus here was around 2 stars.

TBF, while I did not think that Roman/HHH match was even mediocre while watching it live, I think that was more a result of the fatigue of it being the end of a 6 1/2 hour show. When I went back and watched it a bit fresher,(I didn't watch the preshow, watched it in two smaller sized chicks, and FFed through that terrible Rock segment, the match wasn't nearly as bad as I first thought it was. It was still in the bottom half of WM main events, but not nearly as bad as I and everyone else here thought at first

Jake Roberts vs. Rick Rude at WM4.

...what do you mean, it was only 15 minutes? That thing felt like it took an hour.

It takes a brave man to re-watch WM 32. :-)

Technically she used both hands.

Re: WWE Battleground 2017

So I assumed Jinder would go over so they could finally kill this feud and set up Jinder/Cena for SS. But with the dog**** booking of Orton getting screwed for the 5th time is there any way it's not just Jinder-Orton at SS for the 6th straight month?

Might be Orton vs. Khali, hopefully in a match that will last no more than two minutes.

I didn't watch the PPV, and haven't watched SD in weeks. This can't seriously be a possibility for SS can it? If so Road Dogg is just the WOAT.

Re: WWE Battleground 2017

I think it's a preferable alternative to running Orton-Jinder back again. At least it creates a different title match.

It's horrible of course, but given what they've set up I do think it's better than another rematch.

Re: WWE Battleground 2017

Meltzer is reporting that AJ Styles was supposed to win his match.

"That wasn’t supposed to be the finish, that’s all I know. I don’t know if it was changed during the match. I don’t know if it was changed before the match. Styles was supposed to win when the show started. "

Re: WWE Battleground 2017

Maybe Owens just beat him because he's better.

But yeah, KO winning there made no sense.
