Ever since the "Money in the Bank" 2017 pay-per-view, Baron Corbin has been targeting Shinsuke Nakamura with blindsided attacks. On Sunday night at WWE's "Battleground" 2017 pay-per-view, Nakamura will get a chance at revenge as he and Corbin step into the squared circle. The winner of this match could very well put their name into the discussion for one of the championships on "SmackDown Live," although Corbin already has that briefcase with a contract. Here's a preview of the Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Baron Corbin match and WWE "Battleground" 2017 prediction for the winner.

Match preview

At the "Money in the Bank" pay-per-view, Baron Corbin decided to make his attack as Shinsuke Nakamura was making his popular ring entrance. "The Lone Wolf" kept up the beatdown until Nakamura had to be helped backstage by WWE officials. Corbin believed his plan was smart, as he now only had Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, AJ Styles, and Dolph Ziggler to worry about.

However, Nakamura was resilient and limped back down to the ramp later on in the match. Corbin had gained control of things, but Shinsuke went after him immediately for revenge. After Corbin was out of the ring, it came down to Nakamura, Styles, and Sami Zayn, with Styles and Shinsuke eventually getting up the ladder. Corbin re-entered at the opportune time to dump both competitors and ultimately climbed the ladder to grab his first "MITB" briefcase.

On a later episode of "SmackDown," Corbin attacked Nakamura backstage with his briefcase. Shinsuke got back up and retaliated, with WWE officials coming in to break things up. The two would compete on opposite sides of a tag team match during this past week's show, with Corbin and Kevin Owens topping Nakamura and Styles. Now it will be one-on-one this Sunday, but can Nakamura finally get some sort of revenge?

Who will win?

As of this report, the Paddy Power Irish sports book has Shinsuke Nakamura as a 2 to 7 favorite to win. Baron Corbin has the role of underdog at just 9 to 4 odds. However, there is also that briefcase that Corbin has. Even if Corbin loses the match, he could still emerge looking strong from tonight's PPV.

The main event will likely feature the Punjabi Prison Match with Jinder Mahal defending the WWE Championship against Randy Orton. Will Corbin cash in on tonight's match winner, or earlier, and walk out of "Battleground" PPV as the new champion?

Stay tuned, as things could get interesting on Sunday night!
