Major Backstage Update On WWE Night Of Champions

Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

For the WWE Night Of Champions pay-per-view on September 21st in Nashville, Tennessee, thus far the only matches that are official are Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and Sheamus vs. Cesaro for the WWE United States Championship. Next week, we will likely have a strong idea what the roles will be for Roman Reigns, Randy Orton, Seth Rollins, Chris Jericho, Bray Wyatt and others.

By all indications, you can expect Dolph Ziggler vs. The Miz for the WWE Intercontinental Championship, The Usos vs. Goldust and Stardust for the WWE Tag-Team Championship and Paige vs. AJ Lee for the WWE Divas Championship.

Rusev was programmed with Mark Henry on last week’s RAW, however that issue was not addressed on this week’s show. Whether or not that will be Rusev’s match at the pay-per-view remains to be seen.

As noted earlier today, there’s at least a chance that Dean Ambrose will work the show, which led to rumors of a possible tag-team match with Roman Reigns and Ambrose taking on Seth Rollins and Kane, which would make sense based on Monday’s RAW storylines, as long as Ambrose is able to work the show.

Two other matches that seem pretty likely are Jack Swagger vs. Bo Dallas and Nikki Bella vs. Brie Bella, however that is strictly rumor at this point.
