One night after triumphing in a brutal Ladder Match with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship hanging in the balance, John Cena came face-to-face with Authority. And he paid the price. Because The Champ refused to acquiesce to Triple H’s demands to fall in line, at WWE Battleground on July 20, Cena will defend his WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Randy Orton, Kane and Roman Reigns in a Fatal 4-Way Match.
It’s a particularly unfair stipulation for the entering titleholder, as he can theoretically lose the match without ever being pinned. And the competition Cena will face doesn’t get any stiffer than The Viper (no stranger to the World Title), the demon (The Authority’s unofficial muscle) and Roman Reigns (the fastest-rising Superstar in all of WWE). But Cena is used to having the odds stacked against him, and there’s no doubt The Champ will come out swinging as he’s always done.
Find out who will emerge from the Fatal 4-Way with titles in tow when WWE Battleground airs live on WWE Network and pay-per-view on Sunday, July 20, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
