Once again, our buds over at FightBooth have decided to make their picks for this latest WWE PPV. Whether or not these guys are right or wrong, it always makings for a very entertaining read that will get some conversations going. You can find the full article: WWE Battleground Pick Em. Here are some excerpts to whet your appetite Alex Reno (@alex_reno) on CM Punk vs. Ryback: This match actually isn’t going to happen. Punk comes out first, everyone goes nuts when they hear their favorite song, Cult of Personality. The fans are anticipating Ryback and Heyman to come out, when suddenly the jumboscreen lights up, you see Heyman and Ryback together on a boat heading from Buffalo to Niagara Falls for their sudden elopement. Punk is furious and still wants the revenge he will never get, and you never hear from the newlyweds again. Verdict: CM Punk via No Show Chris Langevin (@giantcristoph) on Goldust and Cody Rhodes vs. The Shield: I liked the slow build story leading to this match. It has been one of the better storylines leading into this pay-per-view and makes me incredibly excited for this match. I think the obvious part here is the Rhodes Family will be coming out with the win. I am very interested in how. This is the first time you have a straight-up match where the Shield are not the clear and obvious winners in my opinion. They’re looking so strong that during the like 8 on 3 handicap match, I still thought they were going to win!! This is going to be very interesting. Cody is looking like an early 2014 favorite for a Money in the Bank contract, and during this story, you can see why. I think Cody hits the Cross Rhodes on Rollins to win. (Bonus: Beware of the Dream hitting the Bionic Elbow on Ambrose towards the end. Should be a huge pop from the crowd) Sean Sheehan (@seansheehanBA) on Curtis Axel vs. R-Truth: Good for R-Truth getting a spot on the PPV. Axel seems to have been replaced by Ryback as the #1 Heyman guy and cooled since his encouraging start. Even though everything is telling me not to, what the hell, I’m picking R-Truth. WHAT’S UP!!!!!! Hank Booth (@fightbooth) on Bray Wyatt vs. Kofi Kingston: This is one of those matches were you would think that Bray would get the W seeing that he’s the newer guy that isn’t ready for that first loss. Well, that’s exactly it. It’ll be an early quickie that’ll see Bray kissing Kofi on the forehead before putting him away in memory of his late Sister Abigail. “Her touch could save the world…but her kiss burns it to the ground.”
