WWE Battleground 2017: 5 Best Matches in PPV History

3 of 6

4. The Usos (Jimmy & Jey) vs. The Wyatt Family (Erick Rowan & Luke Harper), 2014

Back in 2014, The Usos were in the midst of their first reign as WWE Tag Team Champions. By virtue of aligning themselves with John Cena, Jimmy and Jey ended up in a feud with The Wyatt Family – Cena was feuding with Bray Wyatt at the time.

Earlier in 2014, the Usos had put Harper and Rowan through tables to help Cena defeat Wyatt. This led to a title match at Money in the Bank, in which the Usos retained. The rematch would take place at Battleground, and it was a 2 out of 3 falls match.

This period in time was peak Wyatt Family, and probably the best of the Usos in their face paint, babyface run. So the match ended up being really good. Having multiple falls gave it enough time to build in intensity and up the drama.

The first two falls came fairly quickly into the match. Harper scored with a big boot less than five minutes into the match. But Jey rolled Harper up only a few minutes later to even the score. And the last ten minutes of the match were amazing. It turned into a superkick party, with Harper looking to pick up the victory with a discus clothesline.

The Usos withstood the onslaught, eventually hitting a tandem Samoan Splash on Harper for the victory. It was a great overall match, really highlighting the tag team division at the time.
