WWE officially announced that Battleground will replace Over the Limit in October. Below is their official announcement in its entirety:
On Sunday, Oct. 6, WWE pay-per-view returns to Buffalo, N.Y., for the first time in two years with an all-new, landmark event: WWE Battleground!
Taking place at Buffalo’s First Niagara Center, tickets for the huge debut go on sale this Saturday, Aug. 3, at 10 a.m. ET and will be available at the box office and Tickets.com.
Featuring all of the top WWE Superstars and Divas — including WWE Champion John Cena, CM Punk, Rob Van Dam, “Mr. Money in the Bank” Randy Orton and more — the inaugural WWE Battleground is sure to be a spectacular that no WWE fan will want to miss.
There’s just no telling what type of action is in store for members of the WWE Universe when the world’s top competitors converge on one the United States’ true wrestling hotbeds, Buffalo!
