WWE Battleground 2017: Every Match Ranked From Worst To Best

7. Flag Match: Rusev Vs. John Cena

Rusev John Cena Battleground

Result: Cena returns his flag to the flag pole (21:10).

Rating: What year is it where these two are still fighting each other on PPVs, in a Flag match no less? Ugh. Honestly, this was just a snoozefest for the most part, and even the live crowd knew it.

Even when the pair ventured outside, the brawling was boring, nobody cared and it just went on and on and on. Cena's victory was a foregone conclusion so there was zero tension at all, and these sorts of matches just always end up being a bit of an embarrassment to most people who aren't excessively patriotic maniacs.

At least the table spot was fine? But this should've run about half the length it did. Christ. 3/10
