WWE Night of Champions news and notes…
– Ryback interfered in CM Punk vs. Paul Heyman on behalf of Heyman at WWE Night of Champions. Curtis Axel had already been eliminated from the disqualification handicap elimination match when Punk was working over Heyman. Ryback ran out and took out Punk, then picked up Heyman to cover Punk. He then shouldered Heyman and carried him out of the building. We reported on the plans to align Ryback with Heyman back in August here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com Premium.
– Speaking of Curtis Axel, he ended up defending the WWE Intercontinental Championship on the pay-per-view against Kofi Kingston. He went over in the match.
– The show was not sold out as is usually the trend with WWE pay-per-views.
