In just under two short weeks the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas will play host to WWE’s ninth annual Night of Champions. As the event gets closer more matches are slowly being announced for the card. The following is an updated lineup for WWE Night of Champions on September 20. As always, the card is subject to change but this is what has been announced so far.
(c) refers to the champion/s heading into the match.
WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match
Seth Rollins (c) vs. Sting
WWE United States Championship Match
Seth Rollins (c) vs. John Cena
WWE Divas Championship
Nikki Bella (c) vs. Charlotte – It was announced for Night of Champions, but they are doing it at Raw on Monday. They could still keep it at Night of Champions too.
WWE Tag Team Championship Match
The New Day (c?) or The Prime Time Players (c?) vs. The Dudley Boyz – It’s The New Day vs. PTP on Raw for the titles. Winners get Dudleys at Night of Champions.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Rusev
Six-Man Tag Team Match
The Wyatt Family vs. Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, and a partner of their choosing.
So far there have been only six matches announced, but I expect them to announce more in the coming weeks. It looks like we may get a Ryback vs. Kevin Owens match for the Intercontinental Championship. I also expect to see Randy Orton and Sheamus on the card, just hopefully not facing each other. Please, not again.
As for the matches that have been announced, they all have the potential to be very good and I’m looking forward to mostly all of them. I can do without Ziggler vs. Rusev. The only reason I’m even remotely looking forward to their match is due to the fact that this will likely be the conclusion to a feud that has severely worn out its welcome. It’s time for bigger and better things for both of these performers.
For the first time since WrestleMania we get to see Sting compete again which always peaks my interest. Although the root of this feud has been based around playing hide and seek with a statue, I still think both Sting and Rollins will deliver in the ring when it comes time too.
