The Brand Split has resulted in several legacy PPV’s getting shuffled around.
For instance, Extreme Rules 2017 played a huge part in settling feuds for the Raw roster. And this year’s Money in the Bank awarded a briefcase to a male and female Superstar connected to SmackDown Live. Last year’s Battleground featured the entire WWE roster, but this time it will only focus on the Blue Brand’s competitor lineup. What’s known about this year’s installment is that Randy Orton will once again fight to regain the WWE Championship from the current title holder, Jinder Mahal. But this time, they’re going to settle their war within the confines of the infamous Punjabi Prison. Battleground is quite the fitting event to hold this specialty match at.
