WWE Night of Champions Results: 5 New Rivalries That Would Thrill Fans
Following WWE’s newsworthy Night of Champions event, there appears to be the potential for a multitude of fresh new rivalries and programs.
Indeed, for the first time in a long time, WWE feels like exciting, must-see television.
What’s next for A.J. Lee and her WWE Divas Championship? Just what is Paul Heyman up to? And what are the consequences of Daniel Bryan controversial win at the pay-per-view?
5. Natalya vs. AJ Lee
Current Divas champion AJ Lee is undoubtedly a great talent. But the one thing she's been lacking is a decent babyface opponent. Former model Kaitlyn just wasn't up to the job, and both Brie Bella and Naomi are far too inexperienced to make good challengers.
The best candidate for the role is probably Natalya—she's a highly competent technical wrestler and, thanks to her exposure on hit E! reality show Total Divas is more popular than ever.
That the Fatal-4 Way at Night of Champions ended when Lee forced the third-generation Diva to tap out to the Black Widow indicates these two may have interaction in the future.
4. The Prime Time Players vs. the Shield
While the Prime Time Players—Darren Young and Titus O’Neil—came up short in their attempt to win the tag team belts from Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns at Night of Champions, it’s doubtful that issues between the two teams have been settled.
Especially when you consider that Young and O’Neil sprang to Daniel Bryan’s defense at the end of Monday’s Raw while he was suffering a beatdown at the hands of Orton and The Shield.
3. CM Punk vs. Ryback
Following Night of Champions, CM Punk looks to be heading for a match with Ryback at next month's Battleground PPV.
This may be a good idea: It was time for Punk to move on from the bland and boring Axel anyway. And the former WWE champion will almost certainly be able to carry Ryback to something decent in the ring.
2. Triple H vs. Daniel Bryan
OK, so technically Bryan is feuding with Randy Orton right now, but come on: his real issues are clearly with Triple H.
After all, Triple H was the one who stripped him of his beloved WWE Championship on Monday’s Raw and has been out to get him from the very beginning.
(It’s also been hinted in the storyline that the executive is the one who put referee Scott Armstrong into making the inept three-count in the first place).
It’s only a matter of time before these two eventually come to blows.
1. The Corporation vs. the Roster
The ending of Monday's Raw, in which Bryan was saved from a vicious beatdown by his fellow wrestlers, made it clear that there is a big showdown coming in WWE. The babyfaces of the roster, including Dolph Ziggler and Rob Van Dam, have finally gotten sick and tired of The Corporation's antics and are ready to stand up for what is right.
How will Triple H and friends react to this uprising?
