Who Will be WWE Champion after Battleground?

Updated on July 22, 2016

Dean Ambrose

The past month has be huge for Dean Ambrose.

After winning the briefcase during the Money In The Bank ladder match, Ambrose would go on to cash it in later that night on newly crowned champion Seth Rollins. After years of hard work, Ambrose definitely got what he deserved by winning the championship.

As one of the top babyfaces in the company, Ambrose is one of the WWE Universe's favorites. Everytime he comes out he receives a huge pop, and the cheers have only gotten louder since he's become champion.

It's only been a month into his title reign, yet there's so much WWE can do with him as champion. Yet, we all know the company likes to do crazy stuff all the time. Just look at how they made Zack Ryder lose the Intercontinental championship to The Miz, the night after Wrestlemania.

Yet, going into the ring with his ex-Shield brothers Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, the odds aren't good in Ambrose's favor.


Seth Rollins

Like Ambrose, Rollins is one of the top Superstars in the company.

His heel performance as been phenomenal. Whether you cheer or boo for him, you have to admit Rollins captures your attention when he's on screen.

After returning from a knee injury, Seth was set on recapturing the championship he had to vacate. He reclaimed his title briefly at Money In The Bank before losing it to Dean Ambrose.

Enraged over losing his belt, Rollins' heel work has been put on display the past few weeks with his feud with Ambrose along with the jabs at a suspended Roman Reigns.

A heel champion would be just the thing to grab the viewer's attention as Summerslam approaches.

Roman Reigns

Roman Reigns has been the subject of controversy for the past few weeks.

Shortly after the Money In The Bank PPV, Reigns was suspended for violating the Wellness policy. Despite his suspension, Reigns is still in the triple threat at Battleground. This news didn't sit well with WWE fans, who felt Reigns shouldn't be in the title picture due to his suspension.

Whether you agree or not, one thing's for sure. All eyes will be on Roman Reigns when he returns on Sunday.

Rumors have circulated on how management feels about Reigns. One reports says The McMahons are angry and losing faith in Reigns. Another rumor states, that they feel Roman is the company's mega star and they want to run a redemption story to get fans behind him.

Prior to the suspension, Reigns was getting booed by people who felt he wasn't ready for the main event push. The suspension and the special treatment Reigns has received, further increased the dislike for the superstar.

Out of the three men, attention is going to be placed on Reigns. If by some chance, Reigns does win on Sunday, expect a lot of backlash from the wrestling community.


All three of these men have proven they're top Superstars and they're all fit to hold the title.

But only one can be the winner.

Right off the bat, I'm going to scratch off Roman Reigns. Due to the controversy over his suspension, I feel it would be a mistake to put the belt back on him. He needs to work his way back up

As for Rollins, he's gained momentum the past few weeks. Since returning from his injury, he's proven he's stronger than before. As Raw's #1 Draft pick, he would be the perfect choice to bring the championship back to the show.

However, I feel that Raw isn't going to recapture the WWE championship. With Smackdown going live on it's new night of Tuesday, I feel that more focus is being brought onto the show. Since Ambrose was Smackdown's top Draft pick, I think the Lunatic Fringe will retain the title thus bringing it home to Smackdown where it belongs.
