WWE Battleground 2015 Review

For the first time since the 1990s, the WWE will have a pay-per-view that only features five matches on the main card (excluding the Royal Rumble events), unless they throw a curveball and throw in a token Divas match that they haven't announced yet... Or maybe there's a surprise or two ahead for the WWE Universe?

Here's the match card, including the pre-event match before the event:

- (Kickoff) R-Truth vs. King Barrett

- Randy Orton vs. Sheamus

- Bray Wyatt vs. Roman Reigns

- The Prime Time Players vs. The New Day (for the Tag Team Championship)

- John Cena vs. Kevin Owens  (for the United States Championship)

- Seth Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar (for the WWE Championship)

With only five matches on the card, we can assume that each match won't be rushed for the first time in a long time. There's plenty of hope going into this card and we'll hope that the WWE doesn't let us down.

Read ahead for tonight's results and our thoughts on the event. This is your final warning that SPOILERS ARE AHEAD!

Kickoff: King Barrett vs. R-Truth 

Well, what were you expecting here? Rather than have Barrett work against someone interesting or have Dolph Ziggler fight against Rusev to further that feud, we got the continuation of the Barrett/R-Truth feud and their battle for the crown. The match was slow and filled with more jokes and dancing than actual creativity, but I suppose that's why this match was on the pre-card. R-Truth got the crowd to make some noise, though Barrett won the match with a Bull Hammer.

Winner: King Barrett

Match Rating: 4/10
