With Night of Champions right around the corner, things are at that point before a pay-per-view where everyone tries a little harder to sell the event.

The Divas and tag team divisions have been getting more attention, and now that we have a clear contender for Nikki Bella's Divas Championship, the Divas revolution has more purpose.

Between new talents stepping up and veterans returning to help the younger generation, everything is running pretty smoothly in WWE.

Before we get to the Superstar of the Week, let's give props to a few people who deserve to be recognized.


Honorable Mention: The Dudley Boyz

Ever since Bubba Ray and D-Von returned a few weeks ago, the tag team division has been a lot more entertaining.

Bringing in one of the best tag teams in the history of the business is a great way to spice things up, and with teams like The New Day coming into their own, the Dudleys have some great competition.

This is not only good for making current fans happy, but their presence gives fans from the Attitude Era and ECW who have stopped watching a reason to check WWE out again.

Even their shorter matches, like the one they had against Los Matadores on Raw, get great reactions from the fans in attendance.

It's not a guarantee that they will win the titles at Night of Champions, but there is a good chance they will win gold again at some point during their current run.


Honorable Mention: Paige and Sasha Banks

The Divas revolution has been a series of meaningless matches until the past couple of weeks. Charlotte finally became the No. 1 contender to Nikki Bella's Divas Championship, but there is another feud developing between Sasha Banks and Paige that is picking up steam.

They met on Raw in a solid bout, but they really kicked things into the next gear with a huge brawl on SmackDown that took four other women and two referees to break up, and even then they barely kept the two rivals apart.

Aggression is one of the things the Divas division was missing for so long, but Paige and Banks are more than willing to accumulate some bruises for the sake of a great match.

Having multiple storylines within the three main groups of Divas is the only way to properly utilize as many people as possible.

If all the Divas can bring the same kind of energy to their matches as Paige and Banks, the Divas revolution will be a complete success.


Superstar of the Week for Sept. 12: Seth Rollins

Seth Rollins has become a main event player in every single way. His mic work is great, his wrestling ability is off the charts and he has the kind of potential to do anything he wants.

This week saw The Authority's golden boy wrestle three matches, two of which took place on Raw. He fought Ryback on both Raw and SmackDown and competed in a six-man tag match in Monday's main event.

Rollins did a great job in all three bouts, and there is no denying that he brought the best out of Ryback in both of their encounters.

Week after week, month after month, Rollins proves himself to be worthy of the spot he has been given, and the fact that he is only 29 years old means he can continue to evolve for many years.

When The Shield was running all over the entire roster, everyone speculated on which member of the group would be the first to win a World title. Looking back, it shouldn't have been a debate. It was always obvious that Rollins was destined for greatness.

When he faces Sting at Night of Champions, he will become one of only a handful of active WWE Superstars to step into the ring with the Stinger. That is an honor he should not take lightly. Even John Cena can't make that claim.

Rollins is someone who is only limited by his own ambition. If he stays on the same path he is currently traveling, there's no telling how much he can accomplish.
