Hey guys, I'm taking this week's Lowdown to
examine the Battleground PPV. So let's get started.
The PPV overall had a nice flair for the dramatics and allowed for the WWE to help progress the "Authority" storyline to increase the overall progression of the current storylines.
But, I honestly felt that Roman Reigns should have been the WWE World Heavyweight Champion because even though a Cena-Lesnar is what the fans really want, Reigns has proven over the past few months that he is indeed a championship-caliber superstar who honestly deserves a title bout of some type.
Bringing AJ Lee back into the WWE while keeping CM Punk off shows that they still have faith in her as a Diva and looks like they want to improve the prestige of the Diva's Championship.
The Intercontinental Championship Battle Royal was a very smart move on the WWE's part. Battle Royals and Royal Rumble-style matches always provide lots of entertainment and unpredictability because viewers never truly know who will come out on top in these matches. Needless to say, I'm glad that the match happened because I felt the Fatal Four Way match was kind of dull and not that entertaining.
So that's the Lowdown for this week... Enjoy! :)
