WWE Night of Champions 2013: Feuds That Must End at PPV Event
WWE is in the zone right now. The main event scene is more interesting than it’s been in years, and performers are delivering on the undercard, too.
We’ve seen a lot of exciting story progressions for several feuds in recent months, but all great stories must come to an end.
Night of Champions is the event where all title belts are contended for and is the show where multiple feuds should culminate.
The following are the five feuds that must come to an end at WWE's next pay-per-view.
Cody Rhodes vs. Damien Sandow
The rivalry between Damien Sandow and Cody Rhodes has been consistent and well executed, but it’s time for it to end.
It started back at Money in the Bank; Rhodes was dominating the ladder match for the blue briefcase, but Sandow stole the victory from him at the last second.
Cody would turn babyface and the two put on a very respectable match at SummerSlam.
The Intellectual Savior of the Masses was bested by Rhodes in that match and then again the next night on Raw.
Sandow should put his briefcase on the line at Night of Champions and finally triumph over his former fellow, Rhodes Scholar.
The Shield vs. Mark Henry and Big Show
On paper, Mark Henry and The Big Show feuding with The Shield doesn’t sound so bad.
Unfortunately, their program hasn’t gained much traction due to Henry’s quiet babyface turn and Big Show’s delayed return, according F4WOnline via wrestlezone.com.
The Hounds of Justice are also still recovering from their rivalry with The Usos, which knocked them down the WWE food chain.
Hopefully, the two big men take the tag team gold off Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns at Night of Champions.
The quicker The Shield revert from WWE competitors to a group of renegades the better.
Christian vs. Alberto Del Rio
The last thing we need to see is another singles match between Christian and Alberto Del Rio.
However, that doesn’t mean their program should end. Captain Charisma should be added to the inevitable match between Del Rio and Rob Van Dam at Night of Champions.
Christian has no business competing for any title other than the big gold belt.
He could be left off the card, but it’d make the championship look bad if one month a Superstar is competing for it and then completely forgotten about the next.
We also haven’t seen a Triple Threat match between these Superstars, but we have already seen singles matches between Del Rio and Van Dam. Twice.
Total Divas vs. the Audience
The WWE has had many thinly veiled advertisements for its Total Divas show, masquerading as segments.
The SummerSlam card was packed with big feuds and meaningful matches, and right in the middle of it was another unconvincing segment.
Natalya faced Brie Bella in a match that was almost as long as the mixed tag clash featuring Dolph Ziggler and Big E Langston.
It wasn’t "Miz TV with the Divas" bad, but it still felt like a chore to watch.
With the finale of the first season scheduled to air on the same night as Night of Champions, hopefully these segments will end and Natalya will get something meaningful to do.
CM Punk vs. Paul Heyman
The feud between CM Punk and Paul Heyman has been terrific thus far—but now it’s missing an essential element.
With WWE saving up all of Brock Lesnar’s appearances for an angle and a match for WrestleMania XXX, Heyman has temporarily lost his monster.
So who does Punk fight now? Curtis Axel? That does no one any favors.
If Happy Heyman can’t recruit another top star to represent him in his war with the Second City Saint, then it’s time for this rivalry to end.
