Report by Sean Hopkins of WrestlingNewsWorld.com

Quick Results:

Pay-Per-View Opening:

The show opens with a video package highlighting the championship theme of the evening, and some historical highlights of great champions from the past. The pyro hits and Michael Cole welcomes us to the show. Justin Roberts introduces the COO of the WWE, Triple H.

Hunter makes his way to the ring and Cole talks about how it's fitting that we start the show with an all-time great champion in Triple H. King says he doesn't know how many people are saying derogatory things about Triple H for fear of losing their jobs.

Hunter grabs a mic and welcomes the crowd to Night of Champions. He's proud to put his stamp of approval on tonight's matches because tonight will be one of the greatest nights in WWE history. And to show the fans that he's not the villainous guy that WWE superstars think he is, and that he's listened to the fans, and they, and he both want what's best for business. So tonight, in the WWE Championship match, where Daniel Bryan takes on Randy Orton, there will be no interference from anyone. No Shield, no Big Show, nobody, just Orton and Daniel Bryan one-on-one. We'll find out who should be WWE Champion. Hunter asks the crowd if they're ready. He's interrupted by Paul Heyman and Curtis Axel.

Heyman says he's been calling, e-mailing, texting, leaving messages with everyone. He doesn't know what it takes to get a reply from Hunter, but Heyman has a desperate need to talk to Hunter. He didn't want it to be in front of the world, but Hunter thinks it's best for business. Hunter says Paul looks terrible and asks him when the last time he slept was, or when he showered. He says Paul looks like a wreck, and Paul screams of course he's a wreck. He apologizes and compliments Hunter on the line-up for NOC, but he says tonight Hunter has made a serious error in judgement, by putting Heyman, a non-athlete and middle-aged father of two, into a handicapped elimination match against a fighter of such dominance, WWE accepted Heyman's branding him as Best in the World. A fighter that gave Brock Lesnar all that he could handle. And Punk wants to beat Heyman up, to hurt him. Punk wants to give him such a beating that Heyman will never be seen in WWE again. Heyman begs Hunter to cancel the match with Punk.

Hunter thinks it over, and says that Paul makes some good points. He asks about if it has anything to do with the match being made no DQ. Hunter says he's tried to weasel out of things, and he doesn't see it happening here. Hunter says Heyman doesn't need to tag in, he can let Axel handle it. Because Heyman should believe in Axel. Hunter asks if Heyman believes in Axel. Heyman hesitates, and Hunter says the match is on. Heyman asks if there's no more honor among thieves. Axel grabs the mic and asks Hunter if there's something personal going on. He knows what it is. The first day Axel became a Heyman guy was on Monday Night Raw and Axel beat Hunter in a match. Hunter says there's an old saying, don't poke the bear. Heyman brought up the fact that Hunter made a mistake, and tonight is Night of Champions, and all championships are defended. Luckily this is a mistake that Hunter can fix tonight on September 15th, in Detroit. He's going to walk down the aisle and defend the Intercontinental Championship against the first person he crosses in the back, and that match is going to take place right now. Hunter drops the mic and heads to the back.

    why the hell is triple h cutting 1 of his terrible promos to start the pay per view. hes wasting airtime and taking time away from younger Talent who are more deserving, he’s burying all the young guyz in the back simply by being out there. guys like Tyson Kidd, jtg and mason Ryan should be awarded this time. this PPV is already sucking so far. i wish hhh would just leave, he blues as coo.

    • David

      Really JTG and Mason Ryan?

      • iwc

        yes really, they are really good and deserve tv time. same wit guys like justin gabriek camuncho and Ezekiel jackson. triple h is hogging up so much TV tint and in sick of it.

        • David

          I don’t understand what you just said.

        • devin steele

          are you high?

  • iwc

    Uuuuggghhhh Im so damn sick of del rio ehh does mcmahon keep pushing this guy? he sucks, wwe thinks he will be the next eddie: well newsx flash he’s not. rvd should be champion right now. that match blew. so far I’m giving this shoe a F- and thumbs down on Miz burying fandengo

    • Snap

      How dare you give the shoe an F?! What did the shoe ever do to you?!

      • Justin Mayo

        talk about getting off on the wrong foot?

    • devin steele

      lay off the crack kid.

      • iwc

        quit being a jerk, i have the right to voice my opinion if i want, so back off jack off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

  • stoney

    When is Vince gonna give up on Del Rio? he gets little to no reaction from the crowd, he has an incredibly stale gimmick which makes John cena look refreshing. He has the whole package (look, mic skills, wrestling ability) but his character is just not main event material.
    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Alberto Del Rio is Jeff Jarrett 2.0

    • Anand Vijayakumar

      Dont insult JJ. Del Rio is as stale as Stale can get… I cant believe people are still pushing him. We need a new WHC soon otherwise the title will become as meaningless as the IC or the US Titles…

    • Tim

      When Rey’s shake rattle and roll knees stop buckling. It’s a Shame. But wwe admits. The product sucks anymore. So they need a country hero. Even if they no reaction ie the great khali

    • Muzz

      He’s a Mexican JBL

    • Del Rio is a LOSER

      your right BRO? DEL RIO IS A LOSER and RVD IS A REAL CHAMP

  • David

    Really WWE giving Ryback another push??!! Dont Vince, Triple H, and Steph notice that no one cares about Ryback and the only reaction he gets is the Goldberg chants? He is just a poor man’s version of Goldberg and not even Heyman can save his career

    • Malboja

      I like ryback , admitidly he has not had the best booking but when he was going against punk and cena a few months ago when he was “the machine ” he was pretty good and got some good pop I think putting him and hayman together is a great thing and it gives them a chance to re-focus him an maybe put a low level strap on him then have the fued go forward and have a hayman stable for survivor series
      Just my opinion tho
      And with no lesner , mark henry or Batista we need a big muscle freak and ryback can wrestle not to lesner’s ability but he can

  • iwc

    dis show continued to piss me off. why r they letting ryback be the new Heymen guy?!? punk should be main eventing nor being wasted on guyz like ryback. I hate when things dont go my way! Wwe continued to ignore the fans, they need 2 listen to the fans and give us what i pairs r hard earned 4 bucks on the live feed.

    • H.M.

      Lol, this dude is funny. He is most definitely aiming to make a jab at the IWC with his comments.

    • devin steele

      woooow lol….U R A CLOWN (you are a clown) for the grammar sick

  • Ryan

    This is so stupid. RVD should be champion!!!

  • Jacob

    I think that Prime Time Players will become the New Tag Team Champions #millionsofdollars

  • Terra Ryzing

    The Big Guy!

  • Violet09

    2 months ago in a Richard’s Reacts comments section I said that Ryback was in need of a manager… to me they made the move too late and made him unlikable with the “bully” skits and not in a way that will bring him legitimate heat as a heel

  • Ctw13v1

    Hogan the best wwe champ that’s gotta hurt Vince, I mean booker t won world heavyweight champ but still interesting.

  • Stoney

    The majority of the matches tonight have been won by heels, and ironically all the champions are heels

    • iwc

      i know i said wrstling is better when the faces chase the title butt i only said that when cena was champ. i hate how the wwe listened to me this time and has all the bad guys winning. i wish punk and bryan would win all the time, this show blows.

  • iwc

    i hate how vince assumes that wrestling fans r idiots or something. punk and cryback feuded last year and heymen scerewed him a bunch and now they are buddy buddy, wtf did i miss something. they never showed heymen apologize 2 ryback for what he did or nothin so why would ryback help him. stupid booking from vince once again


    • Anand Vijayakumar

      It is a storyline. Ryback was a face when Heyman screwed him but now he is a heel and a bully. Heyman is a heel now and I see nothing wrong here…

      Enemies enemy is a friend – have you ever heard of it??

      • devin steele

        he want to be cool because he has no friends and his “girlfriends” are his keyboard,his 5 knuckle shuffle and some grease.

    • devin steele

      ok flip-flopper you were rooting for bryan to win and now you flip-flop! typical iwc’er lol

  • mp

    who won Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton match i want to know did he defeated him and the Triple H regime

    • sheliaeaves90


  • Matt S.


    • M. Scott

      Nice try ..

  • kingdook24

    I was concerned on that 3 count, but nonetheless, DB is Champion & that’s all that matters. I thought HHH was gonna come out based on that quick 3 count. This match saved this PPV from being a total waste.

    YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! Can’t wait for the Aftermath on RAW tomorrow. Too bad I have to work. Thank god for DVR.


    • DanJackson

      Maybe HHH is going to claim the fast count was the result of a concussion suffered when the ref fell out of the ring? I didn’t notice the fast count but the whole ref thing has me confused as to it’s point.

      • kingdook24

        Yeah. Even my brother who doesn’t even watch wrestling like that noticed that the ref counted the 3 faster than normal. I understand where some people are coming from with having DB winning the title so soon. Some were probably expecting the storyline to go as far as Survivor Series – it still can. DB could lose the title again on RAW or get screwed at Battleground – I don’t know. I was just as surprised DB went over clean but hopefully RAW tomorrow will have the answers we seek. Nonetheless, I’m going to enjoy DB being WWE Champion.


  • iwc

    i take it all back! wwe is the best. YES YES YES YES

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    For the next 21 hours I am going to enjoy Daniel Bryan being champ. Let’s see what the fall out is tomorrow on Raw.

  • Cubed56

    I like DB being champ, but the payoff of him winning the title is too soon. I have a feeling they will screw DB out of the title on raw, especially cause the quick count by the official. But if they don’t I really feel wwe messed up big time and killed all the momentum of the best storyline they’ve had going in years.

    • Xavier

      I agree. I was thinking the same thing, I really think they pulled the trigger way too soon. The title switch doesn’t really have that epic feel to it and on top of that most people probably didn’t even order tonight because of the Mayweather fight the night before, Seahawks/Niners game on ABC tonight and the fact that most people didn’t order because they weren’t expecting Bryan to win.

      I remember Backlash 2000 when Rock won the title, that was epic and the payoff was satisfying because Rock had been getting screwed over by the McMahon-Helmsley for months and of course the huge Austin return. WWE failed to create that type of moment with Bryan’s title victory, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens from here.

      • BIG M

        The quick count will be how they will take the title off Bryan and and give it back to Orton on the next Raw but I don’t think thats pulling the trigger on this storyline.
        They did the same kinds of things in the attitude era when a face champ like Austin or Foley beat VKM’s hand picked heel champ like Rock or Taker they make the win look a little less than clean give the title back to the heel and they start stacking the deck against the face again for him to eventually overcome it all thats WWE’s basic plot device for there story lines over the last 15 years.
        So I don’t think they have pulled the trigger yet they’ve just reloaded the gun.

        • Xavier

          That’s what it’s looking like with this whole fast count angle. I still say they should of dragged out Orton’s reign longer but I’m willing to wait and see what happens next.

          • Justin Mayo

            Good point, since he DID say he wanted to make sure he gave it to the right person. What do you think about him giving it to Show, sort of as a bribe for “doing the right thing” more?

          • BIG M

            Nah They won’t give it to Big Show the whole blubbering giant thing there doing now is gonna last a while I think even though it doesn’t make much sense with the whole iron clad contract thing.
            But you and Xavier have raised an interesting point about who would they give the title to if they blame Orton but I don’t think they will.
            I still say they blame the ref and give Randy back the title.

          • Justin Mayo

            Yeah, I see them playing up the ref angle (REALLY wish I saw it now lol) but after what Trips said, I just don’t see him willing to give it back to RKO after he failed him.

          • BIG M

            Again I see where your coming from but I Think your reading WAY too much into what HHH said on the PPV I mean why put all the effort into an overdue Orton heel turn just to have HHH screw him over and make him face again.
            Besides Cena’s out Sheamus is out and Christion’s out (I think).
            RVD is feuding with ADR and Punk’s set to feud with Ryback and Big Show’s still blubbering so who on earth would they put the title on if not Randy.

          • Justin Mayo

            Why would they do it? It’s WWE, that’s why! I’ve been a fan for years, and will be for years to come, but sometimes they just make the dumbest moves

          • BIG M

            Im a lifelong fan too you know and seen the very best and very worst of WWE.
            But Having HHH screw over Orton now would be beyond dumb.
            WWE can get away with dumb but even they can’t get away with beyond dumb.

          • Justin Mayo

            Four words for you…Kerwin White and Spirit Squad. You were saying? lol I hope they don’t, but you have to admit, it’d be an interesting thought nonetheless

          • BIG M

            Like I said seen the very best and very worst of WWE and yes its an interesting thought.
            But don’t judge Spirit Squad to harshly they had some bloody funny moments with DX oh and do you remember Nicky, No well you probably know him better as The Showoff Dolph Ziggler BAM mind blown.

          • Justin Mayo

            Still not quite sure how he survived. In my own opinion, I always thought Kenny was the best of the group, and he only lasted a few months on his own. However, we CAN agree that Dolph needs to shut his mouth if he actually wants to keep having a job, because he’s too talented to be constantly putting himself in the doghouse.

          • BIG M

            Dolph does seem to have a very large Ego for someone in his current position.
            I thought Kenny was the stand out too till I watched Dolph vs Bryan at Bragging Rights in 2011 INSTANT CLASSIC.
            Where is Kenny now anyway last I heard about him was that Mickie James dumped him not long after he was “future endeverd’ or was it just before.

          • Justin Mayo

            Not sure, but she’s being wasted too, which is a shame since she’s one of the few current women with true talent anymore.

          • BIG M

            Yeah WWE made a huge mistake letting her go.

          • Justin Mayo

            one of many

          • BIG M

            Well as long as WWE is still the only big game in town they can afford to make as many mistakes as they want.
            TNA will never compete with them and no matter how good Ring Of Honor’s product is very few people get to see it especially outside the US.
            Not to mention Puroresu is dying despite New Japan’s And PW Noah’s best efforts and Lucha Libre is beginning to flounder due to Mexico’s always turbulent economy.
            Until someone can give WWE a run for there money and give wrestlers better options WWE will still make those kinds of mistakes they wouldn’t have dared made during the monday night war.

          • Justin Mayo

            I had this same discussion the other night with Kendra- I said Dixie is the metaphorical red-headed stepchild, always getting beat down.

          • BIG M

            Don’t really think Dixie’s the problem or Hulk Hogan or there talent they have and had some big names not to mention there home grown talent like AJ Styles,James Storm,Abyss and Samoa Joe.
            Money is certainly not a problem with an energy company as there financial backer now owner.
            TNA’s problem has always been there creative department producing the very worst product in pro wrestling history.

          • Justin Mayo

            Nah, I gotta stick with Dixie on this one, cuz it’s NOT just creative. Hell, RVD himself had to go out and tell people to watch TNA, and there are STILL a shitload of people who thought he stopped wrestling for the last 6-7 years. It’s not just creative, she doesn’t know how to run a wrestling company, and a lot of recent decisions, like bringing in ortiz right after letting go almost a dozen people, was just a very bad idea. and sorry for lapse of grammar, it’s 12:14, i just finished writing an article, so i willingly throw my grammar out the window at this point lol

          • BIG M

            Im Australian mate its only 5 30 here so my grammars still good LOL but ill let you get some sleep sounds like you need it but not before I say creative is still TNA’s biggest problem everything else can wait until they fix there 12 year creative problem.

          • Justin Mayo

            sleep? what is this “sleep” you speak of? didn’t that species die out with the birth of the interwebz?

          • Matt S.

            Australian?!?! That explains a lot “mate” ..

          • BIG M

            And what the bloody hell is that supposed to mean.

          • Dan

            Big Show – New Corporate Champ

      • BigMike

        with all the negative publicity for the hypocritical bullying storylines and all the crap that they are doing IMO WWE put the strap on him to balance out the programming

  • Abhilash

    Randy Should won the Match i didn’t like the result

  • David F

    Triple H will probably say on RAW that the ref was hurt and should not have re entered the match and stripping title of Bryan and hand it back to Orton.

    • Tim

      I am so happy for Bryan. But can’t be. Cause wwe is so cheap. I agree they will probably do something along those lines.

  • Anand Vijayakumar

    I cannot believe Bryan won today. The whole storyline came to an abrupt halt with Bryan going over clean. The whole point of a rematch makes no sense here because Orton won with HHH’s help and DB won clean.

    Is this an indication of a heel turn for DB or a Face turn for HHH?

    Cant wait for RAW tomorrow…

    • monty

      clean did you not see the REF count that 3 so fast?

      also on RAW DB will get screwed, wwe did something we were’t expecting. so when they give us the obvious we are not happy and when they mess with our expectations in good/bad ways we aren’t happy

    • Kris Mystery

      The whole storyline didn’t come to an abrupt halt.. i dare say it’s just getting heated up.

  • The Kayfabe Cafe

    I have a feeling that Orton’s rematch clause will be administered on Raw with some screw-ups for the new champion D-Bry.

  • Rt

    I can’t stop singing prime time players’ theme in my head. “Nigga move nigga move making million dollar nigga move nigga move..”

  • Adam

    I dont understand why everybody is complaining about this ppv. I was entertain throughout the night and it was a lot better then I though it would. Maybe u guys don’t agree with outcomes but some of the matches were pretty good. Now del rio vs rvd has an actual story to progress and punk can still feud with Heyman. Also the results of DB going over has all of us wondering what’s going to happen on raw. I think this show did what it was meant to do and thats progress story lines. This is only a B-level show.

    • Justin Mayo

      It’s not the outcomes I disagree with, but the booking in general. Cryback has flopped back/forth more than even the Big Show in terms of believability (I know it’s not a real word, off my back lol) yet we’re supposed to believe that he’s actually a threat against punk? Tony Chimel would be a more believable threat to Punk, in my opinion.

      • JeanAE

        Believability is a real word.

        • Justin Mayo

          Thought so! That little red squiggle wouldn’t go away, and wouldn’t show the “correct” spelling when i right clicked, so in my laziness I got confused, my bad 😛

      • Adam

        The only problem with that argument is that just a couple months ago most people on this website was saying ryback needed a manager and that Heyman was a good choice. Now everyone has switched sides now that the wwe has done just that.

        • Justin Mayo

          Maybe a few months ago I would have said all he needed was a manager, but with the way he’s been portrayed the last few months, I’ve completely given up on him. If he’s to be taken seriously again, he needs some time away, he needs direction and focus, and he needs creative to NOT flip his attitude around almost every week. As it is now, the heat he gets isn’t good heat, it’s “we don’t give a rat’s backside” about you kind of heat

          • Adam

            I feel everyone is missing the point on this. Its not about ryback. Its about Heyman and punk

          • Justin Mayo

            I know it’s about Heyman and Punk, but that doesn’t mean anyone else involved has to get lost in the shuffle. There are so many other choices that could have been much better choices, which would serve two purposes: A, to further the Heyman/Punk struggle, and B, create a new star in the process. I just personally feel they made the wrong decision, but again, it’s just my opinion.

      • Adam

        And the feud isnt going to be ryback and punk. Its Heyman and punk just like it has been with axel. Axel and ryback are Heyman pawns

    • Kris Mystery

      People are complaining because the show was terrible. The matches weren’t good. It was a B-Level show for sure… and the wrestlers put in a B level performance.

  • monty

    in attitude era we have stories when corporation or VKM champs were pinned cleanly but not so cleanly so there is always a out

    that 3 count will come under a lot of scrutiny

  • Steve pritchard

    I know what will happen on raw tomorrow night. D bryan will come out and celebrate and hhh will tell him he can keep the title if he shaves his beard. Bryan of course refuses , but then agrees only if hhh glues it on his head . Hunter says ok and glues bryans beard on his head and puts his leather jacket on . Then dx music hits and hbk wheelchairs out to hand hhh his sledge hammer and then we have some good tv

  • Bryan Smith

    Anyone else expecting a Sandow cash in after the VanDaminator? If there was a perfect moment to take advantage of a vulnerable champion, I think that was it.

    • William Webb

      Pillar to pillar dropkick on a chair is a VanTerminator. ShaneO’Mac stole it for awhile, but I assure you that it is a VanTerminator. A VanDamniator is something entirely different, though both involve chairs.

      • Bryan Smith

        That is what Michael Cole refered to the move last night on the PPV.

      • Bryan Smith

        My bad. Michael Cole refered to the move as the VanDamninator on the PPV. It’s been so long since I have seen either move I forgot which was which.

  • Justin Lal

    I really don’t know why everyone is shocked that Daniel Bryan won the title last night. With them running three PPV’s so close together (NOC, Battle Ground, HIAC) you had to a few title switches. I don’t think Bryan will be stripped of the title, rather he will have to defend the title at Battle Ground versus Orton.

  • K!NG

    Yeah hopefully dbry makes it more then 3 weeks as champion its annoying when they switch champions so often i’m fine with there only being 2 or 3 title changes in a year. oh yeah and to those who bash del rio dude isnt stale he is a work horse and is one of the few guys in wwe if u where to give them 30 mins they would put on a clinic.

  • eskymi

    I can live with HHH taking the belt away from Bryan as long as he does not give it right back to Orton….cause as much as I love Daniel, for me it’s more KEEP ORTON AWAY FROM IT than it is GIVE IT TO DANIEL BRYAN. So at least I am happy, well for now anyway.

    Gosh darn it, I truly can not stand Orton….
