WWE Battleground 2014: Full Card Preview and Predictions

You have to give WWE credit -- this year's Battleground PPV is intriguing. The same could not be said for last year's installment of the PPV. The main reason WWE is keeping this one interesting? They desperately want/need Network subscriptions. Regardless of why, fans will take it.

Here's a look at the full card, with predictions for every match:

Jack Swagger vs. Rusev

Jack Swagger vs. Rusev

Swagger

This feud has been surprisingly entertaining over the past few weeks. Who knew Swagger could get over as a babyface? When nationalism is involved, anything is possible. As far as the match goes, it's unlikely that Rusev will get derailed by the All-American American. Rusev is headed for the top of WWE, while Swagger is mid-card for life.

WINNER: Rusev

Battleground Battle Royal For IC Title

Battleground Battle Royal For IC Title

Battle Royal

It feels like there's been a lot of Battle Royals lately. Which is fine, as long as they continue to be booked well. This 20-man BR for the IC title should be entertaining, as nearly all the best mid-carders are set to partake. As far as who's going to come out on top? There are really only a few realistic candidates: Ziggler, Miz, Cesaro...

WINNER: Sheamus

Divas Title: AJ Lee vs. Paige

Divas Title: AJ Lee vs. Paige

This divas match is certainly more intriguing than most. However, many will still use it as a restroom break. But give these talented ladies credit, they're good workers.

WINNER: AJ Lee

Tag Team Titles: Usos vs. Wyatts

Tag Team Titles: Usos vs. Wyatts

Usos

These teams have been putting on great matches for weeks now. The question -- will the Usos' title reign final come to an end after several months? If there's a team worthy of taking the titles off them, it's the Wyatts.

WINNERS: Wyatts

Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins

Here we have a potential show-stealer between two former Shield members. The action from bell-to-bell should be tremendous, but it will also likely be filled with interference from The Authority. Ambrose should be booked to look strong, but he'll ultimately be unable to overcome the numbers game.

WINNER: Seth Rollins

Chris Jericho vs. Bray Wyatt

Another potential show-stealer here with Jericho and Wyatt in Y2J's first PPV match of 2014. This bout should be one of many to come between the two stars, so the finsih will likely go down in clean fashion this time around.

WINNER: Chris Jericho

Fatal 4-Way For WWE Title: Cena/Reigns/Orton/Kane

Fatal 4-Way For WWE Title: Cena/Reigns/Orton/Kane

Battleground Main Event

You can argue, outside the divas match, that the main event of Battleground is the least intriguing match on the card. With all the buzz that's already hit the internet about the SummerSlam main event, the outcome seems obvious. The only real question -- how is Roman Reigns booked in defeat?

WINNER: John Cena
