Roman Reigns comes out and says he has a purpose here, and he is going to win at Battleground, even if he has a target on his back. He talks about The Authority and Randy Orton being in his way, but they are irrelevant on his path to becoming the next WWE Champion. Kane cuts him off and just stares at him from the ramp, then Reigns says Kane is just Orton's bitch and runs at him and they slug it out. Reigns knocks him off the apron and into the crowd, then he headbutts him and and they fight back into the ringside area. Kane gets control and stomps him, then a group of referees try to break it up but Kane chokeslams one of them and back Reigns into a corner. Reigns breaks free and spears an agent (Finlay), then Kane goes after him but Reigns spears him off the apron.
BP: Reigns needs a bit more grooming on the mic, but this was a good opener. (He needs more time to get comfortable, not scripts or help what to say.)
The Wyatt Family vs The Usos
Jey takes Harper down with a crossbody, then Jimmy clotheslines Rowan out to the floor and the Wyatts regroup on the floor. Jimmy locks back up with Harper when he rolls back in, but Harper shoves him in the corner and stomps him before Rowan hits him in the back. Jey gets the tag and hits Rowan in the back a few times, then Rowan whips him in the corner and takes him down with a shoulder tackle.
We get back from a break to see Jimmy hit Harper with a crossbody, then he connects with a few clotheslines and a Samoan drop. Jey splashes Rowan on the floor as Harper superkicks Jimmy, then Harper hits the ropes but Jey kicks him and Harper turns into another kick by Jimmy. He heads up top but Harper crotches him on the ropes, then he hits a sit out powerbomb but Jey breaks it up. Jey pulls the ropes down to send Harper to the apron, then they hit in stereo kicks and try to splash him. Rowan grabs their legs and stops them, and they kick him away but Harper clotheslines Jimmy for the win, and The Usos tell the ref he pinned the wrong man.
Winners – The Wyatt Family
BP: I can't tell the Usos apart since they both got matching shoulder tattoos. The commentary team can't, so I can see the ref doing it too. Whether it was storyline or an honest mistake, it doesn't matter. It was still a good match.
