Night of Champions certainly had its ups and downs on Sunday night, as there were some solid matches, but some strange booking decisions at the same time. The same can be said for the competitors, as some of them came out of the show looking great, while others slipped further down the pecking order.
There were some matches that resulted in both superstars looking strong, namely, CM Punk vs. John Cena, but there were others that needlessly held back guys who needed a win. It was only one night, but the results of Night of Champions could favorably or adversely affect several wrestlers for a long period of time moving forward.
It isn't impossible to bounce back from pay-per-view losses, nor is it impossible to lose the momentum gained from a pay-per-view win, but pay-per-view results are a big deal. The booking at pay-per-views says a lot about what the company thinks of certain guys, so they shouldn't be taken lightly.
With that said, here are the superstars whose respective stocks have risen and fallen most in the aftermath of Night of Champions.
