– Night of Champions was not sold out as is usually the trend with WWE pay-per-views.
– Ryback interfered in the CM Punk vs. Curtis Axel & Paul Heyman handicap elimination match on behalf of Heyman at Sunday’s Night of Champions pay-per-view event. Axel had already been eliminated from the match when Punk was working over Heyman. Ryback came out and put out Punk, then picked up Heyman to cover Punk. Ryback then carried Heyman to the back.
