On Sunday night, the 2016 WWE Battleground full match results arrived from the Verizon Center in Washington, DC. The three-hour-plus pay-per-view included a number of exciting bouts with some matches stealing the show. Among them were the Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens match as well as the main event Triple Threat featuring Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns vs. Dean Ambrose for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Below are the quick match results for tonight’s big pay-per-view.
2016 WWE Battleground full match results:
Tyler Breeze & Fandango defeated The Usos via pinfall – Tyler Breeze blocked an Uso’s splash with his knees and then got some leverage to make the pin.
Sasha Banks & Mystery Partner defeated Charlotte & Dana Brooke via submission – Sasha’s mystery partner was revealed to be NXT star Bayley. The duo grabbed the win as Sasha put Charlotte in the Bank Statement to make her tap.
The Wyatt Family defeated New Day via pinfall – Despite a late heroic flurry of offense from a previously-terrified Xavier Woods, Bray Wyatt hit Sister Abigail on him to get the win.
Rusev defeated Zack Ryder via submission – Rusev retained his championship by getting a knee up to block the Elbro Drop and then putting The Accolade onto Ryder to make him tap. Post-match, he tried to attack some more but Ryder’s NXT partner Mojo Rawley rushed out for a save.
Natalya defeated Becky Lynch via submission – Natalya worked over a hurt leg that Becky suffered and eventually made her tap to a Sharpshooter in the ring.
The Miz and Darren Young fought to a no contest – Miz held onto his championship but not after suffering a bit. At one point in the match, Maryse faked that she’d been knocked down by Young’s coach Bob Backlund. That brought Miz out to shove Backlund down, and then Young came out to put a Chickenwing on Miz which drew the ref’s DQ.
Randy Orton appeared on Chris Jericho’s Highlight Reel – Jericho did his usual taunting of his special guest and tried to make it sound like Orton has been afraid of Brock Lesnar, avoiding him for the past 15 years. Orton made a crack about Lesnar’s UFC violation and said Brock might beat up on him at SummerSlam but he’s one RKO away from “Viperland.” The segment concluded with Orton teasing an RKO and then actually hitting one to leave Jericho laid out.
John Cena, Enzo & Cass defeated The Club via pinfall – The trio of Cena, Enzo and Cass were triumphant thanks to a late AA off the corner by Cena on his rival AJ Styles.
Dean Ambrose defeated Roman Reigns via pinfall – The Triple Threat match between former Shield members was an epic bout. The close saw Rollins get dropped by Reigns’ Superman Punch and Spear. However, the champion was quick to capitalize by grabbing Reigns and hitting Dirty Deeds for the win. Post-match, he was joined by SmackDown roster members to celebrate the title staying with their brand.
