On tonight's episode of SmackDown Live, Cena returned and, after being interrupted by Rusev, challenged Rusev to a Flag Match. Rusev turned down Cena's offer for the match tonight, but Daniel Bryan took to Twitter not long afterward and made the match official for Battleground. This could be a fun way to give Rusev some big momentum after being on the shelf injured for several months but I don't see it going down that way. After John Cena's right wing Ra-Ra America is the best speech, I don't think there's much chance of Cena losing this match; it wouldn't hurt Cena at all and, in fact, it could be the start of adding a level of depth to his character seeing as how he's ultimately been labeled as a part timer. Despite his claims otherwise, Cena pretty much is a part timer at this point in time and if they wanted to create some level of doubt as to whether or not Cena's "gone soft", this would be a nice start. However, I ultimately think we'll get the usual performance from Cena, he beats up the evil foreigner and goes onto SummerSlam to quite possibly defeat another evil foreigner in Jinder Mahal while winning his 17th World Championship.
