Rumored Matches for The Battleground Pay-Per-View….

  • Mike Arienti

    Well, so much for the PG rating…

  • raul cruz

    “Hardcore” for WWE means they smack each other with tin baking trays.

  • Joshua Nixon

    Hardcore Rules? I thought they were Extreme Rules? Oh well good entertainment anyways. Time for PG to go.

    • bestintheworld3

      You must be the only person who hasn’t noticed that the pg era has already ended. Have you not heard the swearing and seen the total violence in matches/promos. Catch up dude

      • Trey

        I agree, the A$$ has been heard a lot lately, more blood (punk), Bryant using the head dive ala Benoit ….

        • bestintheworld3

          And edge called triple H a dick … stephanie told randy orton to be more of a bastard on last week’s raw

  • ruthless agression era lover

    Harcore match! There goes pg haha. Its time for it pg to go. Bring back tv 14 rating edge already called triple h a dick a few weeks back on raw. Thats one stage of pg going away. (I hope)

  • ruthless agression era lover

    If its really going to be a hardcore match then that match should have blood in it. If not, then thats wwe’s way of saying this a harcore match with no blood! We just throw toys at each others faces! We call this match the hardcore match: pg style!
