Sami Zayn vs Mike Kanellis Rematch Added To Battleground

Sami Zayn will get a second chance to take on The Power Couple of Love when he gets a rematch against Mike Kanellis at Battleground this Sunday.

Kanellis won their match last night after blatant interference from his wife Maria distracted Zayn. Hopefully Sami won't fall for that again in Phiiladelphia.

Here is an excerpt from the announcement on

Since emerging at the WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view, Maria Kanellis and her husband Mike have been all about professing the “power of love” with constant public displays of their affection. Nevertheless, they managed to break away from each other just long enough to get offended when Sami Zayn accidently interrupted them on two separate occasions.

After Zayn apologized not once but twice, however, he finally decided enough was enough and refused to continue saying he was sorry. When he poked fun at the affectionate couple’s behavior, however, The First Lady of SmackDown LIVE decided to show Zayn just how much love can hurt with a hard slap, and Mike added the exclamation point by smashing a vase over the Superstar’s back.

After being assaulted by Maria & Mike, Zayn opted to go head-to-head against the up-and-coming Superstar in his opponent’s debut match on the July 18 edition of SmackDown LIVE. Zayn was unable to get retribution, however, and Mike Kanellis walked away with a victory, thanks in part to the "loving" distraction from his better half.

After what transpired on the blue brand, the two competitors will square off in a heated rematch at WWE Battleground, as announced by Cathy Kelley in a Exclusive video. Don’t miss a moment of the action, this Sunday at 8 ET/5 PT, streaming live on WWE Network.

Battleground is this Sunday night at 8/7c and Fightful will have full coverage with a Live Results Blog and Post-Show Podcast.
