Speed on the Beat's Night of Champions Preview

Greetings, Eyes on the Ringers.

True asked me to give my opinions on tonight's Night of Champions PPV (exclusively on the WWE Network for...some price under ten bucks). Let's break down what we know so far.

  • Roman Reigns, who was set to square off against Seth Rollins, is out of commission due to a hernia. So, Seth Rollins is probably off the card (save for, y'know, a "surprise" in the form of Dean Ambrose coming back and kicking much butt). 
  • The Bellas feud has engulfed the PG-rated lesbian-tease angle of Paige and A.J. Lee. Paige and A.J. Lee are yay-worthy. However, the Brie vs. Authority Nikki feud has engulfed the Paige/A.J. feud to the point that Paige must defend her Divas championship against A.J. Lee and Nikki Bella. This will probably lead to Maffew having a ton of new Botchamania material (most likely in the "EVERYBODY TALKS TOO MUCH" segment). 
  • Chris Jericho is prepping for another epic tour with Fozzy, so he's squaring off against Randy Orton (who seems primed to get his "Legend Killer" persona back into the psyche of the WWE Universe).
  • The Usos and the Dust Bunnies Brothers are feuding over the Cosmic Key (the tag team belts)
  • Jaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahn Ceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeena John Cena will take on Brock Lesnar with the WWE WHC on the line.
  • Some other feuds that people either don't really care about (Rusev vs. The BlacksMark Henry and America [F Yeah!]), forgot about (Cesaro vs. Sheamus), or are slightly entertained by, even if they don't want to admit it (Damien Mizdow vs. R-Ziggler and The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler)
  • NXT will probably start some sort of angle with the main roster soon (and possibly tonight)
Ok, now for the predictions.
  • Rollins will face off against a returning Dean Ambrose. Rollins, since he's highly pissed off about Dean "rising from the dead" tries to kill Dean again (cinderblocks to the face), but Ambrose counters. This sets up a match for Rollins' briefcase at the next PPV. This, in turn, sets up a former Shield member triple threat.
  • Lesnar wins, even though Cena kicks out at two more times than humanly possible.
  • Paige retains on interference from Brie Bella. A.J. and Paige have a staredown that turns into a makeout session to spoof Michael Sam (since, you know, the WWE don't take kindly to people scorning them to follow their true career paths).
  • Miz wins on interference from Mizdow. Mizdow turns on Miz and has a meltdown about having to partake in drivel (or something)
  • Dust Brothers gain the Cosmic Key (finally) and the Usos start the brother vs. brother feud that was supposed to be for Goldy and Starry.
  • Orton punts Jericho for the win behind the ref's back.
  • Rusev wins, despite a "valiant effort" from Mizark. Show, jealous that Henry split up their team, only to lose to Rusev, turns hell (yes, again) and punches out Henry.
  • Cesaro busts out The Swing and gets the W.
  • WWE has a slew of Roman Reigns announcement replays
  • NXT "invasion" kicks off (again). This time, however, they won't be called the Nexus. The Nexus was for mid-carders--and Daniel Bryan for a couple weeks.
  • Some sort of cryptic tease for this "next generation" crap we keep hearing about.
So, there you go. NoC predictions from Speed--and less trolly than usual. Blame my arm injury (don't ask). Be sure to keep your eyes on the ring--and check out Team DAR's Genesis below (shameless plug).
