PPV Fusion: Battleground 2014
The 2014 WWE Battleground Pay-Per-View starts with a video recapping the end of last month’s World Heavyweight Championship Ladder match at Money In The Bank and hyping the Fatal Four-Way match to take place later on in the night, followed by “The Usos” Jimmy & Jey Uso taking on “The Wyatt Family” Erick Rowan and Luke Harper for the WWE Tag Team Championship in a 2-out-of-3 Falls match.
Harper gets the victory of the first fall for his team, when he hits a big boot for the 3-count and Jey gets the victory of the second fall for his team, when he rolls up Harper for the 3-count.
The match sees the victory of the third and final fall, and therefore the match, go to The Usos to retain their titles when they hit Harper with a double diving splash for the 3-count.
After a video recapping the events that led to the upcoming match between Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins is interviewed before being interrupted by Dean Ambrose attacking him, leading Ambrose to be thrown out of the building at the orders of Triple H.
After the announcers point out that the match was supposed to be next, things instead progress with a video recapping the events that led to the upcoming match, followed by AJ Lee being pitted against Paige for the Divas Championship.
The match sees AJ get the victory and retain her title, when she hits Paige with a shining wizard for the 3-count.
After a video hyping that the next WWE Pay-Per-View will be SummerSlam on 17th August, an interaction backstage involving Kane and Randy Orton, checking in with the Battleground panel (consisting of Renee Young, WWE Hall of Famer Booker T, Alex Riley, and Christian), and a video recapping the events that led to the upcoming match, Rusev (accompanied by Lana) goes against Jack Swagger (accompanied by Zeb Colter).
The match sees Rusev get the victory, when Swagger appears to have been knocked out from hitting the ring post and therefore being unable to re-enter the ring before being counted out.
Afterwards, Rusev fetches Swagger and applies The Accolade to him in the middle of the ring at the orders of Lana, before finally letting go and leaving – once again only at the order of Lana.
After an interaction backstage involving Goldust and Stardust, and a video recapping the events earlier on involving Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring to apparently have the match that we were supposed to see earlier.
Rollins says that as his opponent has been irresponsibly rejected from the building, he has come out to accept his victory via forfeit, so demands to be announced as the winner and have his hand raised.
He gets what he wants, but as he leaves he is attacked by Ambrose, who then proceeds to lead the attack all around ringside. Various referees and officials arrive to break things up and Ambrose ends up being carried away, but it is at this point in which Rollins feels safe enough to attack the prone Ambrose, making things harder for them. Triple H then raises the arm of Rollins as if in victory.
After a video recapping the events that led to he upcoming match, Chris Jericho takes on Bray Wyatt in a match which sees Jericho get the victory, when he hits Wyatt with a Codebreaker for the 3-count.
After Seth Rollins is shown being escorted by security backstage and him telling them that they can leave him, only for him to be attacked by Dean Ambrose in the parking lot and forced to flee in his car, an Intercontinental Championship Battle Royal takes place to see who can be crowned the new champion thanks to it being vacant due to the injury of Bad News Barrett.
Before the match takes place however, Bad News Barrett says that the winner will be happy at first, but that when the final grain of sand drops in their hourglass, they will face their demise in the form of a Bullhammer elbow from him.
The Miz gets the victory to become the new Intercontinental Champion, when he eliminates Dolph Ziggler after having played possum by lying on the floor at ringside for most of the match.
After repeating the video hyping SummerSlam, a video hyping Flo Rida’s appearance on the upcoming episode of Monday Night Raw, and a video recapping the events that led to the upcoming match, John Cena, Randy Orton, Kane and Roman Reigns in a Fatal Four-Way match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
The match sees Cena get the victory and retain his title, when he hits Randy Orton with an Attitude Adjustment onto Kane, and covers Kane for the 3-count.
Cena leaves while Reigns looks on in disappointment, as the PPV goes off the air.
