WWE BATTLEGROUND HISTORY

clip_image002

 

This section looks at the history of WWE Battleground. It started in October of 2013 as a replacement for WWE Over The Limit. This will only look at the 5 year history of Battleground. In the future, there will be a section looking at the history of Over The Limit. The Pay-Per-View took place in October in 2013 & then moved to July in 2014. In 2017, it became a Smackdown Exclusive Pay-Per-View. All of the sections here are the same as in the previous Pay-Per-View History sections.

TRIVIA

Kofi Kingston is the only wrestler to compete at all 5 Battleground Pay-Per-Views

Curtis Axel & The Miz have only competed in Intercontinental Title Matches

Though Seth Rollins said he won the match by forfeit, his match against Dean Ambrose in 2014 doesn’t count, since there was no bell, therefore it is not an official match

Charlotte Flair is the only woman to compete in 3 matches at a Battleground PPV.

The Usos are the only tag team to compete in more than 1 regular 2-on-2 tag team match at a Battleground Pay-Per-View

2014 is the only Battleground to have 2 Kickoff Matches

2014 & 2016 are the only Battlegrounds to have 2 Women’s Matches

Randy Orton & Seth Rollins are the only wrestlers to compete in 2 Main Events & 2 World Title Matches at back-to-back Battlegrounds

2015 was the 1st time that the United States Championship was defended at a Battleground & the 1st time that the Intercontinental & Diva’s Championship were not defended

Kofi Kingston & Bray Wyatt were the only wrestlers to compete against each other twice at a Battleground
