10 Wrestling Facts We Didn't Know Last Week

Will British Bulldog end up in the Hall Of Fame next year?

This weekend, WWE present yet another Pay-Per-View style offering in the form of Battleground. As mentioned before in this article, these broadcasts are coming thick and fast, which isn't exactly a good thing for those who choose to watch via the WWE Network - in truth, the more events there are, the better value for money people are getting for their '9.99'.

At Battleground, Brock Lesnar will challenge Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, and legendary announcer (and WWE Hall Of Fame inductee) Jim Ross gave his thoughts this past week that Brock should lose the match, eventually only winning the title back at WrestleMania 32. Quite clearly, that would take some superb story telling and patience from the WWE creative team, who may wish to pull the trigger much earlier than that, possibly even at Battleground.

Also on the card, John Cena defends the US Title against Kevin Owens, Randy Orton battles Sheamus, Roman Reigns faces Bray Wyatt and The Prime Time Players defend their WWE Tag-Team Titles against The New Day. One other title bout won't be taking place, and this article contains details on that fact, as well as looking at some interesting comments from Seth Rollins on how wrestlers train in the modern era, and words from a legendary tag-team on why they need to make a WWE comeback.
