As the WWE ramps up for Hell in a Cell PPV next month, this month they are sticking in Battleground into the October slot. There are some decent matches in this filler PPV, and we’ll take a quick look at them in your WWE Battleground preview.
In the kickoff match, which is live on YouTube/Facebook, Dolph Ziggler will take on fellow rising star Damien Sandow. This match absolutely deserves to be on the PPV, not the pre-show. Either the WWE creative team has ZERO clue what to do with Ziggler, or he is creating his own demise backstage. While Sandow is a really fun wrestling personality, he is nowhere near Ziggler’s level in the ring. The video below happened almost 6 months ago to the day. You can hear the Smarky crowd reaction. People love Dolph. Vince just enjoys trolling more. I don’t see a troll job happening tonight though.
