After presenting a strong streak of fantastic pay-per-views earlier this year, WWE put an abrupt end to that with Night of Champions on Sunday night. While the event wasn't tremendously terrible, it left many fans scratching their heads as to why they bothered to order the event in the first place.
Daniel Bryan was successful in winning back the WWE Championship from Randy Orton at Night of Champions, but his reign was short-lived. Triple H stripped him of the strap the next night on Raw and announced that a rematch between the two for the title would take place at WWE Battleground in a few weeks.
CM Punk was finally able to get his hands on Paul Heyman at Night of Champions, but the ending result of the match wasn't exactly what Punk desired. With help from Ryback, Heyman shocked the world by pinning Punk for the three-count and the bragging rights.
In other action at the event, Alberto Del Rio and Rob Van Dam clashed over the World Heavyweight Championship, but Del Rio managed to escape with the title intact after getting himself intentionally disqualified. Del Rio added insult to injury by ambushing RVD backstage mere days later on SmackDown.
