WWE Night of Champions 2015: The full outline and because we should care
September 20, 2015 - WWE
WWE’s latest pay-per-view goes down on Sunday night, with a company’s ninth installment of Night of Champions, live from Houston. It’s a flattering built card, with 8 matches and all 5 WWE championships being defended. At slightest one of those titles is expected to change hands, that is usually one of a many reasons we should be looking brazen to a event.
Night of Champions starts during 8 p.m. ET on pay-per-view and a WWE Network on Sunday night. (The Kickoff uncover starts during 7 p.m.) Let’s find out given we should be vehement about it.
Kickoff Match: Neville The Lucha Dragons vs. Cosmic Wasteland (Stardust The Ascension)
What am we looking during here? Neville is “The Man Who Ran Afoul of Gravity,” a tiny, hypermuscular male with monumental athleticism. The Lucha Dragons are Sin Cara and Kalisto, dual luchadores who adore trampolines and a art of lucha. Kalisto is a vital essence of “That small male hasn’t finished anything yet!“
Cosmic Wasteland, meanwhile, is comprised of Stardust — a male who believes himself to be a real-life super-villain — and The Ascension, dual quasi-Illuminati bruisers. Since Stardust has been channeling Mister Sinister, it creates clarity that he’d form his possess chronicle of a Marauders.
Why we should care: It’s superheroes vs. super-villains! It’s sparkling that, after being treated like a fun ever given they came adult to a categorical roster, not usually does The Ascension have something to do, though their pairing with Stardust creates ideal sense.
Pitting a 3 many cartoonish high-flyers on a register opposite a many cartoonishly dishonourable baddies is a recipe for fun and should set a illusory tinge for a rest of a evening.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Rusev
What am we looking during here? This is a many back argument a WWE has finished in a while, though we finally seem to be entrance a endgame. Rusev, a inhabitant favourite for TWO countries, was kinda meant to his ex, so Ziggler fundamentally took tenure of her and they wouldn’t stop rubbing their attribute in Rusev’s face, prolonged after it concerned him. Then Ziggler started scamming on Rusev’s new partner and wouldn’t stop sneak-attacking him.
Dolph Ziggler is ostensible to be a good male here.
Why we should care: Because WWE competence finally spin things around and make a pierce that would make a genuine bad male a bad guy. Or given this competence be a finish of a storyline and all parties will pierce on to improved things. Either way, it’s going to be a brighter day on Monday.
Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose a poser partner vs. The Wyatt Family (Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper Braun Strowman)
What am we looking during here? Bray Wyatt is a personality of a quasi-Satanic hillbilly cult that recently got a new member, in a form of a terrifying and gargantuan Braun Strowman. Reigns and Ambrose competence or competence not have a third male fasten them to even a odds, nonetheless it’s tough to suppose who competence be means to successfully compare adult opposite Strowman.
Why we should care: It’s going to be fun training who a poser partner is, even if it ends adult being someone underwhelming like Randy Orton. This will also be a initial extended demeanour during Strowman, so we’ll have schooled a lot by a finish of a match.
Intercontinental Championship Match: Ryback (c) vs. Kevin Owens
What am we looking during here? Ryback, notoriously voracious optimist, has reason a Intercontinental Championship given May. Kevin Owens, scandalous jerk, has taken offense to Ryback’s relentless confidence and is earnest to take his title.
Why we should care: This is another possibility for Owens to infer that he’s a mold-breaker in veteran wrestling. He’s been carrying extensive matches ever given he done his WWE entrance and this could be a initial step that leads to his initial main-roster title.
United States Championship Match: Seth Rollins (c) vs. John Cena
What am we looking during here? Last month during SummerSlam, Seth Rollins became a initial chairman ever to reason a WWE World Heavyweight Championship and United States Championship during a same time, when he degraded John Cena in a pretension vs. pretension compare (with a assistance of Jon Stewart). Now he’s forced to urge both titles in one night. The gossip is that this compare will indeed be a categorical event, so don’t be astounded if a universe pretension compare happens early and this one closes a show.
Why we should care: Every time Rollins and Cena close up, they emanate something special. Rollins will expected finish adult being a MVP of a night, given he’s a universe champ and pulling double duty, though Rollins/Cena indeed has some of a makings of a mythological feud. It’s probable that in 10 years, we’ll be articulate about this adversary like it’s on a same turn as Edge vs. Cena.
Tag Team Championship Match: The New Day (c) vs. The Dudley Boyz
What am we looking during here? The Dudley Boyz usually done their lapse to WWE after literally a 10-year absence, during that time they trafficked a universe and are now one of a many flashy tab teams in a story of veteran wrestling.
The New Day, meanwhile, are a best thing about WWE right now, full stop. Xavier Woods has taken to personification a trombone outward a ring during matches and their clapping, skipping and dancing act has them on a duration arise within a company. That’s what a energy of positivity will do for you.
Why we should care: As if there weren’t adequate reasons to adore The New Day, they’ve begun a “Save a Tables” debate given a Dudleys returned. The Dudleys are prickly to put The New Day by a table, though they’re prickly even some-more to take a tab titles and supplement to their legacy.
Divas Championship Match: Nikki Bella (c) vs. Charlotte
What am we looking during here? On Monday, Nikki set a record for a longest singular pretension power given a pregnancy of a Divas Championship, though it took artfulness to keep a pretension in her compare opposite Charlotte (who happens to be Ric Flair’s daughter). Chicanery many foul. Now Stephanie McMahon has laid down a law: if Nikki loses her compare during Night of Champions for ANY reason, including suspension or countout, she’ll remove her pretension as well.
Why we should care: This is a initial singles or championship PPV compare for a women given a commencement of a much-hyped (and rarely criticized) Divas Revolution. Both women will be looking to take a uncover and countenance a storyline, with a combined tension of Charlotte seeking her initial Divas pretension power (and her Hall of Fame father roughly positively in a building). Nikki and Charlotte have a possibility to close a lot of people up, that is really a reason to watch.
WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Sting
What am we looking during here? Sting will be carrying usually his fourth given entrance to a WWE. He’s also severe for a WWE championship for a initial time ever. Rollins is livid during Sting given Sting stole a statue of himself and dejected it in a rubbish truck.
(Which was admittedly a genuine jerk pierce by Sting.)
Why we should care: Will Sting win a WWE World Heavyweight Championship? Will Sheamus money in his Money in a Bank briefcase and plea for a pretension no matter who wins? This match, maybe some-more than any other, has people guessing. And of course, as we’ve pronounced many times: there’s zero some-more sparkling in wrestling than a unknown.
Hunker down, everyone. It’s time to watch some wrestling.
