R-Truth vs. King Barrett: WWE Battleground Kickoff 2015

King Barrett looks to silence R-Truth once and for all in this 2015 WWE Battleground Kickoff Match.

ST. LOUIS – In a match with stakes of royal proportions, King Barrett defeated R-Truth at WWE Battleground Kickoff to retain his kingly distinction.

After weeks of exchanging victories against each other and having to deal with “King What’s Up” mocking his throne, Barrett entered into WWE Battleground with razor-sharp focus and a clear confidence. However, in the early goings of the contest, it was the always-jovial Truth who dictated the pace, keeping Barrett on his heels with his ever-present speed and illusiveness.

The 2015 King of the Ring had to rebound quickly from Truth’s early onslaught, and did so with a barrage of strikes and body blows. Barrett’s wearing down of Truth proved successful, and he began to systematically pick him apart with a succession of mat-based holds.

R-Truth, showing the resilience of a king in the heart of battle, was able to evade much of Barrett’s late attacks and mount a comeback. With Barrett reeling by the ropes, Truth lunged at his highness, attempting his signature Lie Detector, but an alert Barrett held onto the nearby ropes to avoid contact. As R-Truth tried to recover, he was crowned by Barrett’s dreaded Bull Hammer, allowing the King to stay the King.
