WWE Night of Champions hit its stride in 2009 and its peak so far in 2012.
The newer pay-per-view doesn't have the storied history of SummerSlam or WrestleMania, but in the last few years stars like John Cena, Randy Orton and CM Punk have made it an increasingly entertaining show.
Still, Night of Champions' history isn't one crammed with classics. There have only been a handful of great bouts at the event.
Cena has an outstanding chance to surpass the event's best contests to date when he faces Brock Lesnar at Night of Champions 2014 on September 21. He'll have to outdo his own fine work in order to accomplish that, though.
Ranked based on how well the main event delivered, the average quality of matches and the number of standout bouts on the undercard, the following stacks up every Night of Champions pay-per-view from worst to first.
