WWE Battleground Results: Undertaker Returns


The buzz coming into WWE Battleground wasn’t great. Matched with the fact it’s not one of the bigger named pay-per-views, the card didn’t appear compelling either. But now that the event is over, I’ll admit that it was better than expected. It brought another classic from John Cena and Kevin Owens, an impromptu Divas triple threat match, and the return of the Undertaker.

So yeah, the Undertaker came back and it wasn’t Wrestlemania. He interfered in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match right when Brock Lesnar was gonna beat Seth Rollins (Yes, the lights did go out). Taker then proceeded to deliver two tombstone piledrivers to Brock. Now, if you read the dirt sheets before Battleground, you were tipped off to Taker appearing at the show (We even saw a picture of him working out). What we don’t know is the reason: Did Undertaker attack Brock because of the streak ending or because Brock broke Kane’s leg last week? It’s kinda obvious that they’ll meet at SummerSlam.

And that brings us to the Gif(s) of the Night: The Undertaker takes Brock Lesnar to Tombstone City.




  • King Barrett defeated R-Truth. This was for the pre-show and I’ll admit that that I didn’t watch it (I was still trying to collect all of the Riddler’s trophies). Apparently this was for Barrett’s King of the Ring crown. Really?
  • Randy Orton defeated Sheamus. Even though I wasn’t anticipating this match at all, it was okay. Orton got a good reaction since Battleground was held in his hometown.
  • WWE Tag Team Championship Match: The Prime Time Players (c) defeated The New Day (Big E & Kofi Kingston). I think most people wanted The New Day to win. I was one of those people. *begins clap therapy*
  • Bray Wyatt defeated Roman Reigns. Luke Harper came back to help Bray beat Roman. We got a partial Wyatt Family reunion and I cool with that. #PushLuke
  • Triple threat Match: Charlotte defeated Brie Bella and Sasha Banks. This replaced the scrapped IC triple threat match. I pretty sure this was better than whatever Big Show, Ryback, and The Miz would have done. They also gave the Divas over 10 minutes. That’s not NXT time but more than we’re used to on WWE pay-per-views.
  • WWE United States Championship: John Cena (c) defeated Kevin Owens. Cena tapped Kevin Owens and I’m sure many fans hated that. But I’m just happy that I can say Cena and Owens put together three really good matches (I didn’t think I’ll ever say that sentence). Maybe they’ll go for the best out of five at SummerSlam.
  • WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Seth Rollins (c) versus Brock Lesnar ended in a no contest. The Deadman returned to Suplex City.
