It looked like the final card for the WWE “Battleground” pay-per-view had been finalized, but a new match has been added. According to PWInsider on Oct. 6, the WWE added a tag team match to the big event.
The new match added to the card sounds like a complete filler match, as The Real Americans will battle Great Khali and Santino Marella.
Khali and Santino are nothing more than a comedy act for the kids, but something interesting has happened with The Great Americans recently. Antonio Cesaro, one of the best pure athletes in the WWE, has been utilizing a new move where he takes a wrestler by their feet and swinging them in circles.
Against Santino on TV recently, Cesaro did the Big Swing almost 30 times before he finally dropped Santino. Last week, he did the same thing to 400 pound Brodus Clay, swinging him 10 times, an amazing feat. The fans love it too and count along as he swings the wrestlers.
This is not new for Cesaro. In a match from 2009, Cesaro teamed with Daniel Bryan and Dave Taylor in a six-man match and swung Grizzly Redwood 100 times. Thanks to this crowd friendly move, the WWE has been considering turning Cesaro good, and this appearance might be a chance for him to see how a PPV audience reacts.
“WWE Battleground” airs at 8 p.m. tonight on pay-per-view.
