There was at least some talk within WWE of saving Roman Reigns vs. Triple H until the September Night of Champions pay-per-view as a big match that will help push WWE Network renewals for the earlier subscribers. It was reported that Reigns vs. Kane would take place at Battleground with Reigns vs. Orton at SummerSlam, if they went that route but as we noted this morning, Reigns vs. Orton is already booked for Battleground.
There was also talk of doing a possible swerve at Money In the Bank with Orton winning the WWE World Heavyweight Title, leading to Reigns vs. John Cena vs. Orton at Battleground. That would have been when Cena wins the title to set up Cena vs. Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam.
