According to the official event page on the WWE, the event will take place Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. It’s tagline is, “Rematch, Resolve, Redemption” which is a reference to the fact that John Cena’s rematch for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship will take place during the event. The official theme song is “Night of Gold” by CFO$, while the venue is sponsored by Diet Mountain Dew and Mountain Dew Kickstart.
This is also an event that has a gimmick. Because of the name, all active championships will be defended at the event. However, it should be reported that the gimmick wasn’t incorporated until 2007 because prior to being called Night of Champions, this even used to be known as WWE Vengeance. But since then – with the exception of 2011 when it went back to being Vengeance – the venue has kept its current name.
The show starts at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST with a pre-show kickoff one hour ahead. Once again, this event can only be watched on the WWE Network for $9.99. Now without further adieu, here is the match card. It will be updated with results when they become available.
