Fans in Fresno and Ontario are in for quite the treat this week. When WWE rolls into town for a pair of live events, Chris Jericho will be working matches against Kevin Owens. Those should be beyond spectacular. The belief is that Jericho, who is almost done with his contract with the company, requested the matches because he wanted to work with Owens.

He stated that Vince McMahon once had to hop on his private jet and fly to a live event because members of the Kliq refused to lose their matches for the evening.

Since there are only six matches announced for the pay per view thus far, there is a very good chance that WWE is going to add a filler match or two at Battleground.

A very interesting stat was just discovered. Up until May 25, 2015, Heath Slater had worked 44 matches. He lost all of them. On that fateful night in Long Island, the former leader of 3MB was paired up against Adam Rose, who had just 5 wins in 61 matches himself. Slater got the shocking victory, which was his first of the calendar year. There is a very good chance that this particular victory might end up being his only victory until 2016.
