Christian was booked so well against Alberto Del Rio at SummerSlam, making it that much more disappointing to see him be rendered utterly worthless in the build toward Night of Champions.
Even if he were to step out of the main event scene, he should still be involved in something worthwhile for the event.
Rob Van Dam has taken his place in the feud with Del Rio, so Christian is in need of a new wrestler to feud with, but WWE has not set him up with anyone yet.
The former World Heavyweight champion simply must not be a priority to WWE, since it appears as though Creative is unable to focus on more than Daniel Bryan and the Triple H storyline.
It's a shame that so many wrestlers are being neglected, particularly since some big names like Sheamus and John Cena are away.
This would be the perfect time for those other stars that don't get that spotlight to step things up and make a name for themselves, but they aren't being given the chance.
All of these unfortunate circumstances will be made even worse if WWE books itself into a corner and has to panic to throw matches onto the event at the last minute, as that does nothing but harm both the pay-per-view and its participants.
Who else do you think will be unfortunately overlooked at Night of Champions? Leave us your thoughts below in the comments!
