oh dear ! 4.9/10
9 October 2013 | by mcamberisSee all my reviews

This event from the start of the booking i knew it was going to be not a good event just one that would set up for hell in a cell ( basically another episode of RAW).

I would give this a 4.9/10 as it was up and down !

(Preshow 5.5/10 average; no build up)

1. Ryback vs CM Punk; 7.5/10, good match

2. Brie Bella vs AJ; 4/10, Boring

3. RVD VS ADR; 7.9/10, brutal as!

4. R truth vs Axel; 5/10, average match

5. Great Kali and Santino vs real Americans; 4.9/10 because it was a waste of time but Cesaro's swing was impressive.

6. Bryan vs Orton; 4.9/10 Good match, horrible ending! in a way it made sense but for the fact that they had promise we would get a new champ was disappointing.

7. Bray Wyatt vs Kofi Kingston; 5.5/10 good match- not much build up

8. Goldust and Cody Rhodes vs The shield; 8.1/10 Great match: match of the night....

Overall Battleground for me wasn't really a event just another general raw episode u get each week.... I feel like they could of left this event out and could of just worked on building up these matches so they would mean much more when it came to Hell in a Cell. However Hell in a cells card is looking great so far. its about they step it up.

2013 Paper view ratings: 1. Royal Rumble 7/10, 2. ELimination chamber 7/10 3. Wrestlemania 6.8/10, 4. Extreme rules 7.1/10, 5. Payback 8.2/10 6. MoneyintheBank 7.9/10, 7.Summerslam 8.8/10, 8.NightofChampion 6.8/10 9. Battleground 4.9/10
