This Sunday is one of the biggest PPV’s that will be taking place Night of Champions but the WWE did a horrible job at promoting the PPV. I am disappointed with the WWE and the lack of effective promoting of this PPV because it is very rare for wrestling fans to witness most of the matches to be contested for all the major WWE titles so therefore it makes this a very prestigious PPV.
I will provide you with my overall thoughts in addition to my predications for the matches. The night will start off in the preshow with the return of the Peep Show hosted by Christian and his special guest Chris Jericho. It always great to see Christian back in a WWE ring, Chris Jericho will probably be hyping up his match with Randy Orton later on and promoting the WWE Network.
Cesaro vs. Sheamus
Cesaro will take on Sheamus for the US title now Cesaro became the number one contender for the title randomly when he defeated RVD on RAW. It was a weird situation because before then Cesaro was on a long losing streak. Now I can’t even lie even though I have never been a fan of Sheamus he has been great as a champion I just wish he would defend his US title more. This match will be very close I wouldn’t mind seeing Cesaro become the new US Champion and get his career restarted once again.
The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler
This will be a very entertaining match between two incredible workers in the ring The Miz will challenge The Intercontinental champion Dolph Ziggler. This feud dates back to SummerSlam when Ziggler won the Intercontinental title from The Miz, leading up to this match there were multiple tag team matches on RAW and SmackDown. They involved R-Truth who became R-Ziggler and Dolph Ziggler got the last laugh over The Miz and Damien Mizdow because they picked up numerous victories. I expect Ziggler to continue his winning momentum, and steal the show as he always does and retain his Intercontinental title.
Triple Threat match
AJ vs. Nikki Bella vs. Paige
This will be a very compelling triple threat match for the Diva title between friends who have turned into enemies AJ Paige and Nikki Bella. Paige and AJ have a long history with each other it reached another level when Paige pulled off a massive upset victory over AJ to become the new Divas Champion at SummerSlam. Nikki Bella got included in this scenario when she back stabbed her sister Brie and assisted Stephanie McMahon to victory at SummerSlam because of this she was rewarded with a Divas title shot.
There are multiple scenarios that could happen one of them is Brie Bella gets involved and assists her sister to victory in order to show her that she still loves her. Another scenario that I could see how to happen is that she screws Nikki and this helps build their feud for the future. I will not be surprised if Nikki becomes the new Divas Champion but on the other hand I believe it’s too soon however I still envision Paige retaining her title.
There was supposed to be a match with Roman Reigns against Seth Rollins but unfortunately Reigns had to be rushed for an emergency incarcerated hernia surgery. Therefore I don’t know who Reigns replacement is going to be but since it’s so last-minute I believe Dean Ambrose will make his return.
Chris Jericho vs. Randy Orton
The feud started when Randy Orton was a guest on Chris Jericho’s Highlight Reel on RAW and then Jericho decided to disrespect Randy Orton. Jericho stated that Orton was given numerous opportunities to become successful and everything was handed to him.
This caused Orton to snap and he brutally assaulted Jericho a few weeks after. In the medical room after his steel cage match against Bray Wyatt on RAW, that’s where in the match Jericho received a knee injury. This match could steal the show because they’re both fantastic wrestlers and they have excellent chemistry with each other. There is no reason for Randy Orton to win the match instead Jericho will win. This will cause Orton to snap and he will brutally assault Jericho and wrestling fans will see the return of the punt kick which will sideline Jericho for a couple of months.
Rusev vs. Mark Henry
I am really looking forward to Mark Henry against Rusev because WWE has really booked this storyline brilliantly. This will not be a match it will be a battle between two giants fighting for country supremacy. Mark Henry got involved with Rusev once he defeated Jack Swagger and he kept on bashing the USA.
Therefore Henry couldn’t take it anymore and he stood up to Rusev once and for all. However Rusev has all the momentum going for him because he is coming off a victory to Jack Swagger at SummerSlam in a flag on a pole match. In addition since Rusev’s debut he is undefeated he has not been pinned or submitted so Mark Henry will have to overcome the impossible. I envision Rusev to continue his winning ways and defeat Mark Henry via a disqualification.
WWE Tag Team titles
Goldust and Stardust vs. The Usos
I haven’t been this invested in a tag team feud since the Usos and the Wyatt’s Goldust and Stardust against The Usos which will be one hell of a match. Ever since Stardust and Goldust became the number one contenders for the Tag Team titles they have become different individuals with more aggression.
Leading up to this PPV for numerous weeks on RAW and SmackDown each member of their respected teams was involved in singles match. They split the wins in the matches however who knows the health of Jey Uso injured knee. My verdict I say come this Sunday there will be new Tag Team Champions it’s time for a change.
WWE Heavyweight Championship
John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar
One of the most anticipated rematches in history will take place this Sunday where the new WWE Heavyweight World Champion Brock Lesnar, will defend his title against John Cena. Now the first contest wasn’t really a match because it was complete domination by Brock Lesnar who absolutely annihilated Cena with 16 German Suplexs and three F5.
Now I expect this to be an all-out war once again and I have to show respect to the best manager of all time Paul Heyman. He always finds ways to make his clients matches intriguing and at NOC PPV is no different. Every week Paul Heyman and Cena have had fantastic segments on the mic and at the same hardly using Lesnar on TV. This match will be closer than the first encounter was and John Cena will take Brock Lesnar to the limit but it won’t be enough once again Lesnar will retain his title. However we will see a different side of John Cena he will officially snapped into a monster and he tease a turn.
