Yesterday we previewed the under card matches for WWE 'BattleGround' On Sunday night, now we look at three upper card contests. In case you missed that part one of our preview you may read it here.

WWE World Heavyweight Championship Fatal Four Way

John Cena (C) versus Roman Reigns versus Randy Orton versus Kane

Peter Schifani:

As much as WWE has been heavily pushing Reigns since the break-up of The Shield, we cannot see him becoming champion just yet. Orton never really got a rematch for the WWE World title since losing it as 'WrestleMania' and well Kane is on a final run under the mask that doesn't lend itself to him being champion. So after all is said and done expect John Cena to retain going into 'SummerSlam.'

Mark Eddinger (Motorsports101):

With Battleground being a new pay-per-view name I don't expect it to be much of a game changer so I expect that John Cena will come out of this with the title. The odds are against him but Cena will retain and going into 'SummerSlam', which is a much bigger pay-per-view, will be the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Chris Jericho versus Bray Wyatt

Peter Schifani:

We can certainly hope for this feud to continue into 'SummerSlam', which is expected, to help Jericho put Bray over even more. For this first match between them it's a bit of toss-up but we will go with Y2J to obtain the victory here, then Bray next month.

Mark Eddinger (Motorsports101):

I enjoy listening to Bray tell Jericho that he can't save us and since Chris Jericho is such a great veteran who's role mainly these days is to come back and put over the younger talent, I expect Bray Wyatt to exit 'BattleGround' with the victory. Added to my pick of Rowan and Harper winning the tag-team titles that will make a clean sweep for the Wyatt Family at this pay-per-view.

MitB Contract Holder Seth Rollins versus Dean Ambrose

Peter Schifani:

Seth Rollins suffered what seemed to be an injury on Monday Night Raw that could have put this match in jeopardy of happening, but nothing more has come of it since. It may enough of a reason to have Dean steal a win here and watch these two go at again at 'SummerSlam' with the 'Money In The Bank' contract on the line.

Mark Eddinger (Motorsports101):

I said yesterday that my favorite match of the 'BattleGround' pay-per-view might just be Jack Swagger versus Rusev. However, this match between former teammates of The Shield, should end up being the highlight match. I love the story line of this rivalry. Since Seth Rollins is the 'Money In The Bank' contract holder I expect him to win in the end but it should be a show.

Well that concludes our look at all of the matches on the card for 'BattleGround' Sunday night on the WWE Network. It looks like a solid card top to bottom with at least one new champion guaranteed based upon the winner of the battle royal for the vacant Intercontinental Championship.
