      //->> NEWS FROM THE WRESTLING-ONLINE NEWSWIRE
      Web version at http://www.wrestling-online.com/




      > BATTLEGROUND LIVE ON PPV & WWE NETWORK TONIGHT
      - Live tonight on pay-per-view and WWE Network, WWE presents Battleground
      from the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa, Florida. The full card is as
      follows: John Cena vs Kane vs Randy Orton vs Roman Reigns in a fatal 4 way
      for the WWE World Heavyweight title; 20-man battle royal for the vacant
      Intercontinental title; AJ Lee vs Paige for the WWE Divas title; The Usos
      vs Wyatt Family in a 2 out of 3 falls for the Tag Team titles; Dean
      Ambrose vs Seth Rollins; Bray Wyatt vs Chris Jericho; Jack Swagger vs
      Rusev; and Cameron vs Naomi in the kickoff match.




      > ODDS FOR BATTLEGROUND MATCHES
      - Betfair Sportsbook, a subsidiary of Betfair Casino, released the odds
      for all the matches for tonight’s Battleground pay-per-view. Usually when
      there’s going to be a switch, a lot of money is exchanged very late so
      these numbers can and probably will change as the event gets closer to air
      tonight. Here are the bets for each match: WWE title match: John Cena -
      11/8, Randy Orton - 7/2, Kane - 7/2, Roman Reigns - 7/2. Tag Team title
      match: The Usos – 11/8, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan – 4/7.
      Intercontinental title battle royal: Cesaro – 5/1, Kofi Kingston - 33/1,
      The Great Khali - 33/1, Rob Van Dam - 9/1, Dolph Ziggler - 7/1, Big E -
      11/1, Ryback - 11/1, Curtis Axel - 14/1, Alberto Del Rio - 9/1, Bo Dallas
      - 33/1, Sheamus - 11/1, Fandango - 9/1, Sin Cara - 33/1, Zack Ryder -
      33/1, The Miz - 14/1, Diego - 33/1, R-Truth - 33/1, Xavier Woods - 33/1,
      Heath Slater - 33/1, Titus O’Neil - 33/1. Ambrose vs Rollins: Dean Ambrose
      - 10/11, Seth Rollins – 10/11. Jericho vs Wyatt: Chris Jericho - 11/10,
      Bray Wyatt – 8/11. Swagger vs Rusev: Jack Swagger - 4/5, Rusev - EVS
      (double the stake). Divas Title Match: AJ Lee - 8/13, Paige - 5/4. Kick
      off match: Cameron – 2/1, Naomi – 4/11. There’s also a bet about Sting
      making his first WWE on-camera appearance with yes at 8/11 and No at 11/10.




      > RICKY STEAMBOAT REPORTEDLY RELEASED FROM WWE
      - It is being reported that WWE Hall of Famer Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat
      has been released by WWE due to latest budget cuts although we haven’t
      been able to confirm that. The former NWA champion has been working for
      WWE since 2005, first starting as a road agent before moving to NXT as a
      trainer and also helping in the talent relations department. Steamboat was
      inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2009 by his good friend Ric Flair.
      If the rumors of Steamboat being released are true it will be a great loss
      for WWE and especially down at NXT where he’s been helping training
      up-and-coming WWE Superstars and Divas.




      > HOGAN AND FLAIR TO CO-HOST NON-TELEVISED WWE EVENT
      - Both WWE Hall of Famers Hulk Hogan and the recently returned Ric Flair
      will be appearing together on the non-televised live event from the SAP
      Center in San Jose, California, on August 16, the night before SummerSlam.
      According to the SAP Center website, the two will be “co-hosting” the show
      which includes matches John Cena vs Kane in a street fight, Randy Orton vs
      Roman Reigns, and Dean Ambrose vs Seth Rollins among others. This will be
      the final WWE show in the Bay Area prior to WrestleMania 31.




      > THE ROCK SAYS STING WILL GO TO WWE
      - CBS-19 reporter Chris Van Vliet from CBS-19 from Cleveland sat down with
      Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to talk about Hercules and just like in every
      other interview, the topic of wrestling keeps popping up. The Rock
      basically repeated what he said before about returning, saying he’d be
      open about it as long as the opponent makes sense and also talked about
      the incredible atmosphere at WrestleMania XXX when he came out with Hogan
      and Austin. However during the interview, the host asked Rock about Sting,
      a topic which no one has gone for yet during these sit-down interviews.
      “You think Sting will come back?” the host, obviously a wrestling fan,
      asked. The Rock smiled and after thinking about it for a second he said,
      “I do, yeah, and I know a guy or two, so, let’s just put it like that!”

      > HARDCORE JUSTICE-THEMED IMPACT ON AUGUST 5
      - TNA has announced that their Hardcore Justice-themed Impact television
      show will be taking place on August 5 at the Manhattan Center in New York
      when the company returns there for another series of tapings. Hardcore
      Justice was one of yearly TNA pay-per-views that the company scratched off
      their calendar but still held for free as an episode of Imapct. TNA
      returns to the Grand Ballroom at the Manhattan Center on August 5, 6, and
      7, after successful tapings last month.
