An event that could've been so much better,but did have some impressive moments,it's just the bad was so much so,it tainted the whole thing.
It starts of great with a chaotic HARDCORE match with ALBERTO DEL RIO defending the heavyweight title against ROB VAN DAM,a great showing. You have to forgive this is PG era hardcore,but it's still proof hardcore doesn't have to be bloody to be entertaining. I enjoyed it very much but felt let down by the end.
GREAT KHALI and SANTINO MORELLA face THE REAL AMERICANS (ANTONIO CESARO and JACK SWAGGER).The match is very much a dull filler,but the end is impressive,CESARO is surely going on to bigger things,this move of his is getting a lot of cheers.
R-TRUTH takes on CURTIS AXEL for the i.c. title. It's fine,but nothing about this excites.
BRIE BELLA tries her luck against the very odd AJ LEE,for the diva's title. It's back to the not very impressive women's matches it seems,shame because AJ is a top talent. The match isn't rubbish,it's just nothing much.
CODY RHODES and GOLDUST fight for their jobs against SETH ROLLINS and ROMAN REIGNS. What a match! The crowd were loving it,it had that tension there,great wrestling and worked the angle really well. It's great to see the RHODES brothers team up and they look great together. I really hope they have another few matches after this impressive encounter.
KOFI KINGSTON vs BRAY WYATT next. I tried to get into this,KOFI has some great moments,but it just seemed to fall flat. BRAY enhances his creepy character with an EXORCIST type move,but the match itself has nothing to really offer.
C.M. PUNK vs RYBACK sounds great and some of the match is fairly impressive,but the end doesn't really work and the whole thing left many unfulfilled.
A nice longish main event now,with DANIEL BRYAN and RANDY ORTON fighting it out for the vacant wwe title. Some great moments in here,with BRYAN really coming alive in some of it,ORTON also looks revived with his recent heel turn. A great match is really going well and then...oh boy! I won't say what happens,but it is a stupid end to a great match,leaving many viewers feeling confused or just cheated.

So by all means,go for the event if you can forgive bad moments,there's some impressive stuff on here,but so much of it didn't work,leaving the good stuff tainted. I'd go as far as to say I quite enjoyed the event,but feel too frustrated at the off moments to give it another star.

Alberto Del Rio vs. Rob Van Dam - WHC - Hardcore
Their match at Night of Champions which was a straight up normal match was much better in my opinion. This felt cheap and nothing worked well.
**

Real Americans vs. Santino & Khali
Awful, as was expected but has one of the strongest moments in WWE today involving Cesaro and Khali
DUD

Curtis Axel vs. R-Truth - IC
This has one of the nicest drop-kicks ever performed by Axel but other than that a complete
DUD

AJ Lee vs. Brie Bella - Divas
Nothing different
*

Rhodes Bros vs. Shield
This was awesome. One of the best matches of 2013, it had everything you want from a wrestling match; great work, good crowd, emotional story that actually worked.
****1/4

Bray Wyatt vs. Kofi Kingston
Bray is a good worker, we in 2014 realise that but back here he was given rubbish to work with,
*

CM Punk vs. Ryback
Ugh, these two have never worked well together and this was no different. Finish was about as anti climatic as it gets.
*

Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton - WWE Title
This was going okay until the abysmal finish that knocks down the rating of the match a tonne. It was terrible and a complete farce.

WWE Battleground is another mediocre event; which replaced the pay-per-view 'Over the Limit'.

1. Rob Van Dam vs. Alberto Del Rio - Battleground Hardcore Rules Match for the World Heavyweight Championship.

This match was an extreme rules match;with a PG Era twist (which isn't very good for the old school fans) . Rob Van Dam and Del Rio made an impressive performance, but unfortunately didn't last long and was misplaced on the card.

3.5/5

2. The Real Americans (Antonio Cesaro and Jack Swagger) vs. Santino Marella and Khali (his full ring name is the 'Great Khali but he isn't great at all)

This match was pointless and pathetic. Cesaro and Swagger could of got better competition against two complete strangers it was that unentertaining.

1/5

3. Curtis Axel vs. R-Truth - Intercontinental Championship Match

This was an improvement from the previous bout by far.

3/5

4. AJ Lee vs Brie Bella - Divas Championship Match

This bout was okay I suppose. Both athletes performed to their best.

3/5

5. The Rhodes Brothers (Cody Rhodes and Goldust) vs The Shield (Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins)

This was the bout of the night. Absolutely phenomenal performance between all of the athletes involved in this major improvement from the previous matches. Filled with adrenaline rush and excitement throughout, great match.

5/5

6. Bray Wyatt vs Kofi Kingston

A squash match waiting to happen, what a surprise......
The newcomer from WWE NXT Bray Wyatt; dominated throughout and the time of the match dragged.

2.5/5

7. CM Punk vs Ryback

Well this match was very good. CM Punk and Ryback performed to their very best and pulled it off.

4/5

8. Daniel Bryan vs Randy Orton - WWE Championship Match

I don't know how to describe this bout. This bout was mediocre from the start, then it turned into a complete waste of time.Daniel Bryan could of done so much better in a different bout and the ending is so annoying and somehow predictable as well. This match could have ended better for the good of the fans and the performers.

3/5

I hope this review is helpful to amazon customers :)
