Unnecessary show.

Combination of a lame duck supercard and a major weekend being just 6 months away. Not too far away from next month's supercard weekend either.

Observer:
With so many tickets left on sale, they discounted Battleground’s least expensive tickets last week. The $125 seats have been cut to $75. The $75 tickets have been cut to $55 and the $55 tickets have been cut to $25. They are pushing you can get into see the show for just $25. Even with Cena, the Smackdown PPV shows are harder to sell tickets for than the Raw shows, and even though Philadelphia is an historically good wrestling market, the Wells Fargo Center would hold around 15,000 seats for a PPV making it larger than most venues they run in.

Alright everyone, last year was an anamoly. Who else is erect for the annual Battleground tradition from 2013-15 of being a one-match show? Also which match has the best chance of being 2nd best as a potentially unforgettable *** special? Also the usual shitty finish?

How soon before Nakamura asks for/gets released? He's clearly on autopilot in the WWE now.

One quality match, bunch of snoozers, and an unforgettably lousy close? That's the Battleground we've all come to truly love unlike last year's bullshut.

I think that's going as planned since WWE doesn't really demand he works at a high level and he can keep his health in the long run.

Nah man pro wrestlers do it for the love you see. It was never about the money, but the smiles in the front row.
