That was evident in Mike's debut match on the most recent edition of Smack Down when he used Maria to distract Zayn and consequently score the victory.
No reason was given as to why this rematch is being held, but it is a fine addition to an already stacked show.
This is largely due to how the women are constantly being thrown into multi-woman matches without any real purpose.
Battleground will be no different, as Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Natalya, Tamina and Lana fight for the chance to contend for Naomi's Smack Down Women's Championship at Summer Slam.
It is way too early in Mike's run for him to be losing, so he should beat Zayn for a second straight time at Battleground. Raw's women's division isn't exactly lighting the world on fire these days, but Smack Down Live's women's division is in a significantly worse state.
During his time on Raw, there were points when he wasn't wrestling on the pay-per-views, and obviously Zayn deserved better than that.
Mike and Maria Kanellis, on the other hand, needed a stable feud to kick off their stint on Smack Down the right way.
He has sparingly showed up on WWE TV in the past few months, making this match all the more random. He's too talented to be wasted by constantly being relegated to Kickoff matches without purpose.
Similar to how it helped Chad Gable, Dillinger would benefit from answering AJ Styles' U. All that aside, Dillinger is a surefire pick to emerge victorious here. There are likely those who aren't pleased Sami Zayn isn't higher up on the card at the moment, but let's simply appreciate he has some sort of direction on Smack Down.
Although AJ Styles was originally scheduled to contend for the United States Championship, he instead captured the star-spangled prize at a WWE live event earlier in July.
