Work of Wrestling host Tim Kail returns to review the latest SmackDown Live pay-per-view Battleground. He covers every match with his usual blend of pro-wrestling enthusiasm and constructive criticism, calling it like he sees whilst enjoying most of the show. 

What was the best match of the night? How exactly should the WWE be presenting and booking Shinsuke Nakamura? What was great about the women's 5-way Elimination match, but what could have made it even better (hint - it's MORE TIME!)? While the AJ Styles vs Kevin Owens match was technically proficient and indicative of brilliant wrestling, why did it feel like something was missing? Is John Cena too good for Flag Matches (spoiler alert: the answer is a resounding YES!). Why has Tim changed his mind about Mike Kinnelis, but not changed his mind about backstage segments? And, lastly, why was the Punjabi Prison match way better than it needed to be? All of this and more are addressed on this new episode of The Work of Wrestling podcast.
