Night of Champions 2014 (Live as it happens)

Recommended Posts

John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar

Randy Orton vs. Chris Jericho

Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler

Sheamus vs. Cesaro

Goldust & Stardust vs. Usos

Rusev vs. Mark Henry

Paige vs. Nikki Bella vs. AJ Lee

 

With Reigns vs. Rollins off the show, I guess they are going to throw in a Sandow match or something. Still looks like it could be a good show on paper.

To say that Christian has a problem with motivation right now is an understatement. He didn't give too shits about this segment. Unfortunately it didn't seem Jericho did as well but if he is leaving then it makes sense too

That segment was really having me hoping for a minute they were gonna turn it into a triple threat. As it stands Orton/Jericho is my "piss break" match of the night.

Jericho has been booked into oblivion, and Orton has been the stalest character in the company for years. Who in their right mind thought we wanted to see this match?! Jericho must've picked it himself - I bet he likes working with Orton - because no fan actually gives a flying frog's shit about it.

I enjoyed that match as a whole, but I'm not in love with The Rhodes as heels, let alone as heel champions. Seems bizarre that this was what the long Usos reign was building too. This did have some great cut off spots, and some really smart moments, but I didn't think this was a high end match for either team

Goldust & stardust vs. Usos

- Continues the tag titles getting time on PPV and delivering. I think the crowd is still hesitant to boo the Rhodes brothers so it isn't as heated but they can still go. Not as great as the Wyatt Family tags but I am glad this was given time to develop and I am interested to see where a Rhodes tag reign goes.

I actually liked it more than at least the 2/3 falls Wyatts/Usos match. Good structure in general with nice performances all around, a super hot ending stretch and really cool moments like one of the Usos going super aggressive against Cody's leg and Cody slapping him with the glove.

Fun opener, although the finish was a bit of an anticlimax. Would have liked the ending to a long title reign to be a bit more definitive and well built. Needed a change anyway, The Usos don't have a massive shelf life and are pretty limited as champions. Solid opener - nothing anyone will remember in three months time but the crowd was into it and it was nicely structured.

I thought the match was alright. It wasn't a blow away match. It dragged in spots, but both teams worked hard. I think the Usos have great spots, I'm not sold on them between the spots.

I get that they need subs however they can, but it was still kind of shocking for them to go straight "if you bought this on PPV you're an idiot" there.
