With just three weeks until WWE Night of Champions, there are not a lot of matches confirmed, but it’s really starting to come together. Last week, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match was set in stone with Seth Rollins defending against Sting. From there, WWE is setting things up nicely, and it looks like it will be a pretty good card.
So far, it is officially confirmed Sting will be facing off with Seth Rollins for the WWE Title. At the end of Raw, it was revealed that Rollins would pull double-duty and give John Cena his rematch for the United States Title.
After what took place on Raw, as recapped by WWE, there are a lot of other matches in the works. One other confirmed match is the Divas Championship, which will see Nikki Bella defend against Charlotte.
Charlotte won the “Beat The Clock” challenge on Monday Night Raw, and it gave her the shot at the title held by Nikki Bella, as confirmed by WrestleZone. It would not be surprising to see another Flair end up with gold in WWE.
Other rumored matches include:
1. The Wyatt Family vs. Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, and???
This feud is just not ending, as proven on Raw. The former members of The Shield are outnumbered and outmatched. Someone is going to have to join them, but who?
2. Intercontinental Title Match: Ryback (c) vs. Big Show vs. The Miz
For some reason, this is happening again. It appeared to be going the way of just Ryback vs. Big Show, but on Raw it was clear that Miz is still involved for some reason.
3. Dolph Ziggler vs. Rusev
If Lana is ever allowed to wrestle, it could drastically change this match. It could be a singles match, again, with some sort of stipulation added, or a mixed tag match.
4. Tag Team Title Match: The New Day (c) vs. Dudley Boyz vs. Prime Time Players
It’s obvious the Dudley Boyz were thrown right into the title chase upon their return, but WWE didn’t want to eliminate PTP from a rematch or anything. The New Day is one of the best things going on in wrestling today.
More matches will be confirmed as we get closer to Night of Champions, but for now, only three matches are officially in place.
After the star-studded, four-hour long SummerSlam, WWE seems to really want to keep the big show feel going. Night of Champions is being built nicely with some good matches and a lot of reasoning behind them. Although rumored matches outnumber the official matches, I think it’s going well so far.
