Night of Champions
We go live into the arena in Nashville, Tennessee, where Renee Young, Booker T, The Big Show, and Alex Riley welcome us to the show from the Expert Panel set.
We take a look at Brock Lesnar’s three dominant pay-per-view performances in 2014: over The Big Show at the Royal Rumble, over The Undertaker at WrestleMania XXX, and over John Cena at SummerSlam. Show says that Cena wants his championship back and says that no matter how many times Cena gets knocked down he gets right back up again. Show calls Lesnar the most dangerous person in the history of the WWE, but he is not a real WWE Champion like Cena is. Riley runs down the clock from SummerSlam, where Cena only clocked 1 minute and 16 seconds of offense and spent 11 minutes of the match on his back. Booker says Lesnar has handled his business this year, but Show says Lesnar has only had three matches and he is not impressed.
We join Tom Phillips in the Social Media Lounge and he reminds up to use #WWENOC to join the conversation on Twitter now. He reads a few tweets about the Lesnar vs. Cena rematch tonight.
We take a look at the ongoing feud between Mark Henry and Rusev and then the small buildup for the match between Chris Jericho and Randy Orton. Booker picks Orton to beat Jericho, Show picks Jericho, and Riley picks Orton.
The panel transitions into talking about the Intercontinental Championship Match between Dolph Ziggler and The Miz. Show says that The Miz should be Damien Sandow’s stunt double, instead of Sandow being Miz’s. Booker says Miz will get it done tonight, and Riley agrees with Booker. The talk picks back up with the United States Championship Match between Sheamus and Cesaro.
The panel now talks about the feud between The Usos and the Dust Brothers. Show and Riley bring up that both teams are brothers and know each other better than anyone. We go backstage where Booker T is interviewing Goldust. Book brings up memories from when they were a tag team, but Goldust tells him that the old Goldust is gone. Stardust walks in and says it is written in the cosmos that they will win tonight. We then see a video of the hype for the Divas Championship Match, which features Paige, AJ Lee, and Nikki Bella. Riley says Nikki had the advantage since she is aligned with The Authority. AJ Lee skips to the expert panel and she says it doesn’t matter that Nikki is in the match, because she says Paige has something that belongs to her and she is going to take it. AJ says Nikki has a big bark, but that she bites.
We see the Roman Reigns situation, and an interview with him where he explained what happened. We are informed that he will be out of action for about three months. We then see the video preview for the feud between Brock Lesnar and John Cena.
Christian’s music hits, and he makes his way to the ring to host The Peep Show, where is special guest will be Chris Jericho. Jericho and Christian talk about their tag teaming days, and they disagree over who was the leader and who came up with their team names. We take a look at Randy Orton’s attack on Chris Jericho two weeks ago. Christian calls Orton Triple H’s lap dog, but Orton interrupts from the Titan Tron. Orton says when he is finished with Jericho, the only television show he will be appearing on will be Total Divas. Jericho says that is a perfect setup for Orton’s new show, “Total Jackass.” Jericho says when he is finished with Orton, he will never, ever be the same again. Jericho’s music hits as the Night of Champions Kickoff Show comes to a close.
We see the opening video for Night of Champions, which features some past champions such as Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Ric Flair. It then transitions into the feud between Brock Lesnar and John Cena. We go live into the arena, where Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, and John Bradshaw Layfield welcome us to the show.
