Jericho was a very underwhelming choice, but hoping the Ambrose/Reigns vs Wyatts feud continues and they eventually find the right partner and that's where it's leading. Guessing it's going to be an Ambrose/Jericho feud though. Unfortunately I'm just not interested in Jericho having a proper run, just don't think he's got a lot to offer any more.

The PPV was alright really, all the matches were pretty good. Sting took some big spots and looked genuinely seriously injured, I think they rushed the finish because he legitimately collapsed. Makes me think he'll likely never wrestle again for WWE unless he can seriously prove his fitness, too much of a risk having him collapse in the ring.

I'm surprised they seem to be going down a Kane/Rollins route, the only thing I imagine happening is that they have one PPV match and it's revealed Kane was working for The Authority still, then onto Rollins/Triple H.

He stood next to Ambrose and Reigns in a similar Shield style vest (as if to be their partner) but was dragged off by security. Bray played along laughing at Reigns and Ambrose that he was their guy.

Standard WWE PPV of 2015. Good quality matches with urine poor story telling. I think every match delivered at some level although nothing was perfect.

I think the Sting collapse was legitimate, atleast all reports are saying as much.

Credit to Seth Rollins, he did everything you can ask of your world champion in one night. Getting the US title back on Cena makes sense, it was playing second fiddle to the WWE title and now we can get the open challenges going again.

terrible news about Sting if true. This report from Inquisitr makes it seem as if it was a legitimate injury, http://www.inquisitr.com/2436013/wwe-rumors-was-sting-seriously-injured-at-night-of-champions-against-seth-rollins/

It would make sense if the injury occurred during Rollin's signature running powerbomb into the turnbuckles; the move is potentially very dangerous if botched and with Sting not being as athletic or young as he once was it's a major bump to attempt.

I haven't see the match so don't know if either Rollins or Sting are at fault for the injury; maybe Rollins was too vigorous, or too tired after his match against Cena and didn't throw him correctly? Or maybe Sting just couldn't break his fall properly? Has he ever taken a running powerbomb into the turnbuckle before?

If this is his last match in the WWE for fear of him being a liability then I think this is incredibly unfortunate and tragic. He will go down in history as losing the only two matches he ever had in the WWE and retired ignobly because of injury. I very much doubt that's the way he imagined his career would end when he signed with the WWE. After decades and his entire career spent in other promotions, he finally comes to the WWE only to get buried by HHH and then injured in what could be his last match!

Personally, I think the WWE should bring him back after he's recovered and put him in a program where he is protected from any more major bumps. He should eventually retire in a match whether win or lose that is scripted to be his retirement. Whether he wins the WWE title or not, I don't think matters. He's earned his place in the WWE HoF. But, he should at least have some wins on his record.

Thanks for the video, looked like a very physical match for someone of Sting's age! Much respect for Sting for taking so many bumps and suplexes. His injury could have been the result of an accumulation of so many physical spots in the match. I am a little surprised that the WWE would script so many spots in the match knowing Sting's age, I think they deserve part of the blame for not protecting him; however, the fact that he agreed to a match of that nature shows that he didn't just come to the WWE to pick up a fat paycheck and get inducted into the HoF. His collapse looked like genuine exhaustion. I think the match really took its toll.

Re: WWE Night of Champions Results

Post by Prometheus on Mon 21 Sep 2015, 4:06 pm

As a B level PPV I thought this delivered all you could hope for and more.  

Ryback vs Owens
Ryback tosses Owens over the top rope!  Then we slowed the match way down.  And I wasn’t really a fan of the way this story was told.  2.5*

Dolph Ziggler vs Rusev
At some point on commentary, Cole says “I think what got lost in this story is…”.  Michael a lot got lost in this story.  This showed the best of the two wrestlers, Ziggler was bumping well and Rusev was hitting his power moves (and athleticism, some great kicks and wonderful DDT sell).  The two are among the best workers WWE has.  But they cannot outwork a story that drags them down like an anchor with a lead protagonist who isn’t there, and the ending *sigh*.  3.5*

The New Day vs Dudley’s
I got kind of bored by this in the middle.  Thankfully the Rocky theme brought me back to life.  But the beatdown on Bubba just seemed to go on and on.  I’ll give it an extra half mark for what happened after the end, but really this was a transition match to a gimmick match (hopefully with the Hardys and ladders too).  2.5*

Nikki Bella vs Charlotte
Boring.  Inconsistent story-telling.  Reductive of Charlotte.  I usually skip WWE women’s matches.  I thought this was a new start, but will go back to the skipping, because in controlling 99% of the match and looking so dominating here, Nikki will get her rematch.  1.5*

Wyatt Family vs Ambrose, Reigns & Jericho
Oh wow, Jericho.  We’ve not seen him since he last came back to do the job.  All we are left to wonder is who will pin him.  I have to admit that wrestling-wise Jericho is a good replacement for Rollins, and he did a really good job helping to get in the right positions for Strowman a couple of times.  A couple of years on this didn’t have the old Wyatt / Shield feel or pace, but everyone took some big bumps and tried to rebottle the lightning.  3*      

Rollins vs Cena
Full credit to Rollins.  Back-to-back matches, you expect him to work this slow, not come out at pace and keep that pace right up.  Yes, Cena won this one, but in allowing Rollins to unload his wrestling they are building a bigger star (albeit one who will go face by Mania) than they were with the weasel heel.  And Cena, completes his re-invention, as an indie-style wrestler, by re-capturing the US title, which hopefully aids Raw too.  4.5*

Rollins vs Sting
25 years ago, Surfer Sting was often criticized for having the look, but lacking the work.  56 year-old Sting, was in better shape than at Mania and worked harder than his prime character in this match.  Whatever your thoughts on Sting, and whether he should be working a title match, no one wants a significant neck injury.  Match was much less overbooked than I expected, and for Sting working through what sounds a really bad legit injury to a finish. 4*

Didnt like the Divas match on reflection. It was too one-dimensional. I dont mind a heel targetting a weak body part, but that cant be the whole match. And I think Charlotte should have had more of a comeback than two moves to win.

Hopefully thats Nikki out the picture for good. Paige looked completely uninterested so hopefullly thats part of the booking to a heel turn and not just unprofessionalism.

Yeah the PPV was pretty standard, matches were decent but the storyline telling was puzzling.

Can see a few matches again at Hell In A Cell, Owens vs Ryback, The Dudleyz vs New Day.

Hopefully the Dolph vs Rusev feud is done.

Can see Paige turning heel on Charlotte I think soon.

Not sure what will happen in the U.S. Title and WWE title scene.

Think Jericho will feud with Ambrose, however I don't see the feud with the Wyatts over.

Not much to write home about after that PPV, it was decent in match quality but nothing intentional about the event was memorable in my opinion, Cena and Rollins brought it once again, with it being a standard one on one it was going to be hard pushed to best their SummerSlam match and in truth while it was good it didn't touch that match, it was still by far the match of the night though for me.

I think Jericho was setting up a future match/feud with Ambrose, whether it's not until WrestleMania or one of those WWE Network Specials that Brock will wrestle on I don't think it'll be a feud we'll be seeing on RAW.

I'd hope that's the feud with Reign's/Ambrose and the Wyatt's done now, it was never going to get close to their fued at the start of 2014 and they've managed to get the Wyatt's over again as a unit without too much damage to Ambrose or Reign's so I'd be looking to move all of them on pretty quickly now.

I noticed Paige was way off last night, it had to be intentional, whether it was looking disinterested in Charlotte's victory or her delayed "WOOOO" when Flair was backstage with the girls it all felt a bit off, I'd be surprised if this isn't a slow burner now.

I really don't like the New Day, I've tried but I just can't like them, that being said its not X-Pac heat where I don't want to watch them, I want to see them get their ass kicked so in that sense they must be doing their job well but I just can't buy into them as the best team

Unfortunately for Rusev I think he's going to be stuck in this fued with Ziggler for a while, I don't mind Ziggler but feel this feud is more in tune with his character that Rusev's...It's getting to the stage where Rusev is going to need Lana back ASAP to heel turn and get back to basics, they had a winner, they've somehow contrived to mess it all up but the Rusev character at heart is so basic that it can be salvaged.

It was an alright PPV and you cant pretend the last two matches were not intriguing throughout in and out of kayfabe. I was not at all sure where they would go with either, and I think they worked out interestingly.

However, no answers to the booking conundrum should have been "...and then Kane appears."

I think every champion now is the correct one. That says a lot. Each division has a figure at its head that will lead it.

Cena was doing excellent work with the US Title and it didnt seem like the right finish to that was Rollins. It was always waiting for someone to be really put over, and whilst Owens and Cesaro both seem to have missed out, I do hope theres plans to work this back to what it was and build a figure up to take the belt.

Owens deserves a title and hopefully they don't do their usual IC booking that ruins anyone who holds the belt. Ryback did ok, but if they are going to put lacklustre contenders up against the title then you need someone as charismatic as Owens to carry the belt.

The New Day run that division as characters and need to really be built up as a nuisance, which one PPV defence wasnt enough of. This is screaming for a tables match. I wouldnt mind seeing PTPs and/or the Luchas thrown into that feud for entertainment value if its going to be tables.

Charlotte was the rightful next champion and opens up doors to many feuds. Paige, Naomi, Sasha, Becky will all be up there now.

Rollins' story isnt over. I still think it has to end with HHH, probably after hes dropped the title, but there is definitely still more to his reign.

Ziggler/Rusev was depressing and is killing both characters. And Lana. The only person this feud has been good for is Summer Rae.

I liked the surprise of Jericho, but he did what he always does. In terms of potential from here, I think its an interesting way to move Ambrose out of the Wyatt feud if he goes after Jericho now, and it'll be two good workers in the ring and on the mic. The winner is clear, which is always a shame and also the nightmare of Jericho nowadays, but at least theres something to enjoy from technical standpoint.

Presume Reigns goes after Wyatt alone. Not sure where this feud can go, really. When is someone the winner?

Unless the mystery partner turned out to be someone like The Rock then the Wyatts were always going to win. They're not going to have Strowman beat already. We'll get atleast another two months of this I reckon.

Who will come out (to the fans) the best from the inevitable Reigns / Strowman feud?

He's a one shot pony as far as I can tell. Im sure Reigns will eventually go over and Strowman will drop back down.

It'll all depend where they put Reigns over. They seemed pretty into him in Houston but if they do it infront of a smart crowd like Philly or Chicago they'll just Poopie all over it.

I like Strowman. I like Reigns too. And of course he's going to put Reigns over. But I truly think this is a great chance for him too.

I'm not saying he's going to be a multiple WWE champ, but he could have a great role in the company.

I think to be fair to Strowman he's less than 2 years into his pro wrestling career, I'd be shocked if he wasn't awful! What he does do though he does well, that being very strong and intimidating, the pierced nipple is kind of unsettling though

Contrast him to Konnor from the Ascension whos been wrestling 7-8x as long and still can't sell a f*****g arm drag

I'm also perversely excited to see a proper Reigns/Strowman match, it's going to be so bad!!

Sting going through the Spanish announce table.

Other than MitB cash-ins, I'd argue that WWE hasn't delivered many memorable moments in the last few years. I think the Sting bump is therefore up there.

Reigns / Show was good. It's not going to be Tanahashi / Nakamura, but book it right and it'll be worth a watch I think.

key was in the phrase there Prom, while I've no doubt Stinger was meant to go through the table I think he went through it a lot harder than planned and for me thats what made that spot memorable, I think there's been plenty of Non-MITB Cash in moments that have been memorable in the last few years, the biggest surely has to be the last count of the 3 in the Lesnar/Taker streak match, anything Daniel Bryan did between post Rumble 14 until WrestleMnaia, Rusev TKOing Cena and techincally becoming the first guy to submit Cena, Kevin Owens destruction of John Cena in their first match, the whole Shield/Wyatt and Shield/Evolution stuff too.

There's been many memorable moments in the last 18 months for me.

May pick it up again if Jericho is back. I really wish he could return to his honest man heel gimmick. One of my favourite all time heel runs. Sadly he is somewhat dated now

Just read that Jericho is back through until The Rumble, that will probably render my opinion on the while Ambrose thing redundant, I'd expect them to work through TV on their feud now.

Also interesting to read that Sting is starting off RAW tonight with a major announcement, I can't see him having test results back already from his injury last night, if he chucks it and its a legitimate retirement then I'd imagine that he knows he can't hang with the level of the guys in the company he keeps these days

Rollins has a very physical and dynamic move-set, he always did as Tyler Black in ROH. The bumps Sting took and the spots he was in at NOC is at another level to the likes of spots he's going to get with the likes of Big Show or Kane. Guys like Lesnar, Ryback or Owens would be too much for him - they're too physical and their finishers would be risky.

Realistically, I never expected him to hang with the level of the top guys in the WWE right now. At the end of the day a guy in his late 50s naturally would lose a fight to a guy in his prime. Sting is a marquee attraction now, not a worker. However, from those highlights I saw of NOC, Sting came to put on a great match for the fans and for that I respect him. He tried to compete like he was in his 30s again, but his body just couldn't cope. There's no shame in that.

Does Kane really need the mask with the hair sewn in - we all know he's bald

would he really look least intimating with a mask and his normal bald head?

I dont mind it. We've always had hairy masked Kane so it helps continuity. It also creates more of a seperation between corporate Kane and demon Kane.

My problem is the hair looks so obviously fake. It needs to be thickened up a bit to make it look more like real hair.

Does Kane when he's in Demon mode even know he's bald? 

I think it's fine, he distances himself from the way his "normal" look is due to his need to distance himself from the reasons he's a big Red Machine in the first place.

Speaking of Bane, anyone else think that the guy that jumped the ring at Night of Champions to be with Reigns look like Bane before they plied him with Venom in Batman and Robin?

First and foremost Im glad he's ok. It was pretty scary and Im glad it was nothing too serious.

Second, Im really happy with the praise he's heaping on Rollins. Rollins is probably the best in the world right now and it will pay dividends to have a guy like Sting singing his praises. Also glad he doesnt hold Rollins responsible and takes a bit of the blame and accepts these things happen.
