WWE: Battleground

comment
During last March's Wrestlemania 31, Brock "the Beast" Lesnar had the WWE World Heavyweight Championship stolen out from under him by Seth Rollins. When Rollins refused an immediate rematch Lesnar went ballistic, attacking commentators and suplexing a cameraman in a furious fit of blind rage. Lesnar was immediately suspended for his actions and has remained in seclusion -- until now. At WWE Battleground, reigning champ Rollins will finally have to defend his ill-gotten title against a determined Lesnar, who has held the WWE Championship title four times and is certainly this generation's uncontested world wrestling champ. He is, after all, the only wrestler to have won the UFC Championship, the IWGP Heavyweight Championship, the NCAA Wrestling Championship and the WWE Championship. The Lesnar vs. Rollins title bout is just one of the wars waged in the squared circle when WWE Battleground is broadcast live from Scottrade Center (1401 Clark Avenue; 314-241-1888 or www.scottradecenter.com) at 6:30 p.m. tonight. Admission is $25 to $450, and the card is subject to change.
