After tonight’s SmackDown Live, the WWE Battleground card is taking shape. With Shinsuke Nakamura and Baron Corbin’s scheduled match never getting off the ground tonight, these two men have been added to the June 23rd card.
Plus, the blue brand’s Women’s Division is in a state of flux with Naomi having no clear #1 Contender to her SmackDown Women’s Title, so the ladies will fight it out in a Fatal Five Way at Battleground for that #1 Contender’s spot. It’s doubtful at this time if Naomi will have an actual title match on this card. This will be the second of the past three SmackDown Live PPVs where the Women’s Title has not been on the line in a match.
