The WWE Battleground PPV is nearly upon us and it's got one heck of a card. Tonight is shaping up to be an incredibly exciting PPV; let's just hope it lives up to last month's stellar PPV, Money In The Bank. Here are my opinions and predictions on what's going to happen tonight.

Tonight's kickoff match is between the former Funkadactyls. This shouldn't be a lengthy feud, but it most likely will ... Which is unfortunate given Cameron's horrifically terrible abilities in and out of the ring. I'm looking forward to Naomi beating Cameron down, but I can see Cameron getting Alicia Fox or someone to help dispose of Naomi during or after the match.

Prediction: Naomi

The Uso's vs. The Wyatt Family in a 2 Out of 3 Falls Match for the Tag Team Championship

The Uso's and Wyatt's feud has run its course; this needs to be the finale and I expect it will be. It's a long shot, but I think Uso's take the first fall, Wyatt's the second and just as the Uso's go for the win, The Ascension arrives, beats the Uso's down and the Wyatt's get the win. Then a rivalry starts between Ascension and The Uso's, while the Wyatt's go against the Dust Bros moving forward.

Winners: The Wyatt's

This match ideally would have been saved for SummerSlam, which leads me to believe that Jericho may actually get the win here, so that Bray can walk out of SummerSlam with a huge win. Jericho has become the ultimate jobber for rising stars as of late, but he needs to get a W tonight in order to solidify him as a threat and make this feud worthwhile.

Winner: Jericho

I've been thinking that Rusev needs to finally get a loss, so that there's a change in the outcome of his matches, rather than him always either winning or at the very least, beating the hell out of his opponents; but after hearing that there's a chance that WWE is going to change the gimmick for Rusev and Lana, I see this feud ending much faster than was likely planned.

Winner: Rusev

Tonight, I expect our biggest fear coming true: the unification of the IC and US titles. Having less belts causes the importance of them to rise, but it also makes it so that up and comers have less to make a name for themselves. Add in the fact that while Sheamus is very talented, his feuds tend to be boring and you have at least one very disappointed fan.

Winner: Sheamus

I'll admit, this is the one match that I'm almost clueless on. While I know A.J. is going to win, I'm not sure how and I'm frankly worried with where this match is headed. I can picture them having Paige throw the match in order to get more heat on her and keep up this weird gimmick that they're "frenemies," saying that she just can't hurt her friend or something to that degree.

Winner: A.J. Lee

If you were wondering what match would completely steal the show, look no further. These two are headed toward a match for the ages, where we see glimpses of everything they're capable of, but not shown everything. Rollins should take the first W in this feud, after getting some help from Kane. They should capture everyone's attention and never lose it ... At least until the Beast Incarnate's music hits later in the night.

Winner: Rollins

Fatal 4-Way Match for the WWE Championship Between John Cena, Roman Reigns, Kane and Randy Orton

This is a main event that I don't expect will have a definitive end, due to The Beast Incarnate making his destructive return, and taking out all of the competitors. I think they'll make sure Reigns looks good when Lesnar attacks, but ultimately I feel that Lesnar will leave everyone defeated and curled up around the ring when the PPV closes.

Winner: Cena by way of a No Contest
