WWE Night of Champions 2015 Review

WWE Night of Champions 2015 took place on Sunday September 20th at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. Due to the fact that I'm seriously behind on my reviews, I'm changing the format with it explaining how the match ended and my opinion of it. If you have any thoughts about this change, let me know. Now, let's take a look at the show

The Pre Show match was the team of Stardust and The Ascension taking on Neville and The Lucha Dragons. This was an entertaining match to watch and in the end, Viktor shoved down Neville after he hit the red arrow on Stardust. This gave Stardust the chance to recover and hit the cross rhodes to get his team the win.
Winners: Stardust and The Ascension
Predictions: 0 for 1

The first match of the show is for the Intercontinental Championship as Kevin Owens challenges Ryback. In an even contest, Owens raked Ryback's eyes to get out of the shell shock then rolled him up to become the new Intercontinental Champion. This was a good match and an entertaining way to start the show.
Winner: Kevin Owens
Predictions: 1 for 2

Next was Dolph Ziggler taking on Rusev. I felt sorry for them as the crowd were more interested in Lana than the wrestlers. In a weird ending, Summer Rae got ejected for yelling at the ref after a pin attempt for Rusev. In response, Summer threw her shoe at the ref but it hit Rusev instead. This gave Ziggler the chance to hit the Zig-Zag to get the win. I wasn't a fan of the ending as it makes Rusev look stupid but it was a decent match.
Winner: Dolph Ziggler
Predictions: 2 for 3

The Tag Team Championship match was next as The Dudley Boyz challenge The New Day (sucks!) The Dudleys looked like they were going to win it after hitting the 3D on Kofi but Xavier Woods broke the pin causing a disqualification. The Dudleys don't take this well and hit Woods with a 3D through the table. Another good match with The New Day being one of the most entertaining things in WWE right now.
Winners: The Dudley Boyz
Predictions: 2 for 4

We next got the Divas Championship as Charlotte challenges  Nikki Bella. Despite Nikki focusing his offense on Charlotte's left leg, Charlotte managed to power through and apply the figure eight to get the win. Afterwards, Paige, Becky Lynch and Ric Flair celebrate with her. I enjoyed this match and with the addition of Sasha Banks to the main roster, it looks like the Divas Division will have a bright future, if creative don't fuck it up.
Winner: Charlotte
Predictions: 3 for 5

Next we get The Wyatt Family taking on the team of Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and mystery partner Chris Jericho. Braun Stroman seemed to be the focus of the match and he got the win by applying Jericho in an elevated clutch. Afterwards, Jericho blew off Reigns and Ambrose. Quite a good match overall.
Winners: The Wyatt Family
Predictions: 3 for 6

The United States Championship was next as John Cena challenging Seth Rollins.  Unfortunately, even though I predicted him to win, John Cena got the win after hitting a top rope guillotine leg drop then an AA.  I really enjoy these matches between the two and this one was once again, a good match.
Winner: John Cena
Predictions: 4 for 7

It looks like it's about to be a lot worse for Rollins as Sting comes out to challenge him for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Luckily, Seth managed to counter the Scropion deathlock with a roll up to get the win. Afterwards, Sheamus tries to cash in his MITB but Demon Kane comes out and chokeslams him and then Rollins. This was a good match and well done to Rollins for giving us 2 good matches.
Winner: Seth Rollins
Predictions: 4 for 8

I thought that Night of Champions was quite enjoyable with some good matches. I was surprised that Rollins retained the WWE World Heavyweight Championship but I'm glad he did and long may his reign continue.
