WWE's Night of Champions pay-per-view will go down on Sunday, September 15, live from Detroit, Michigan. The company has put on one successful event after another this year, with the most recent being SummerSlam.
It was on that night of course that the biggest storyline in WWE began when Triple H gave Randy Orton the assist in defeating Daniel Bryan. The unexpected swerve took place mere moments after Bryan had pinned John Cena to become the new WWE champion.
But Orton decided to cash in his Money in the Bank contract on Daniel after he took a shocking pedigree from Triple H. From that point on, the core of WWE's programming has centered on this angle, and it has lead us to this.
Night of Champions has a lot to live up to, next to WWE's other pay-per-views this year. But as we head to the eve of N.O.C., the night does not appear to be primed for greatness.
As of this writing, there are four additional matches on the Night of Champions card. Two involve storylines that developed since SummerSlam, one has its roots back at Money in the Bank and one is a match that could take place anytime on TV.
Five matches, folks. That's what we're looking at, and unless more is announced at the last minute, this is what we can expect to see at Night of Champions.
So, how has the company done in terms of match buildup for the bouts booked? I'm very glad you asked.
