– WWE added Antonio Cesaro and Jack Swagger vs. Santino Marella and The Great Khali to tonight’s Battleground pay-per-view because of timing issues. Once they laid out the show with the planned match lengths, they realized they still had a significant amount of time left. The call was then made to announce the tag match.
– While CM Punk is dealing with nagging injuries and Ryback is limited to his in-ring work, the plan is for their match at Battleground tonight to still receive a decent amount of time. Plans call for Punk and Paul Heyman’s feud to keep going past tonight.
