It was time for another PPV in the WWE calendar. This time round WWE aired Battleground from Philadelphia. Amidst some high profile matches like Rusev-Cena, Jinder Mahal-Randy Orton, how did other matches for the tag titles and US title go? How was the overall event? Read on to find out the 5 things we learned from WWE Battleground!
1. A decent championship run for Jinder Mahal
Ever since Jinder Mahal shocked the world with his victory over 13 time champion Randy Orton, the WWE Universe have been sceptical about the duration of his title reign. However, with repeated assistance from the Singh Brothers and the shocking return of The Great Khali at Battleground, all doubts have been put to rest.
Mahal goes into SummerSlam as the champion and is in all likelihood going to face John Cena for the title. With the upcoming WWE India Tour in September, it makes sense that WWE would keep Jinder Mahal as the champion. This will help in further boosting the WWE brand in India, which is currently the third major market in the world.
This would come as some great news for the WWE fans in India!
