Sunday night marked WWE's yearly event that puts titles first as Night of Champions emanated from TD Garden in Boston. CM Punk vs. John Cena for the WWE championship headlined the show, but every other title was defended as well.
Night of Champions is generally considered to be a B-level show, and I would say that it lived up to that advanced billing. There wasn't a lot of build put into the undercard matches and that ultimately detracted from each.
The fact that JBL sat in on commentary for the recovering Jerry "The King" Lawler may have been the high point of the night, since several of the matches fell short of expectations. I wasn't expecting anything great, with much of the energy likely being focused on Survivor Series in a couple of months, but the show didn't really have any great moments.
The Punk vs. Cena ending in particular closed things out on a bad note, but there wasn't a lot to love prior to that either. Keep reading for grades for that match as well as every other match on the Night of Champions card.
