Jim Ross has taken to his blog to talk about WWE “Night of Champions” and the storylines that came out of it. You can read the blog in it’s entirety at JRSBarBQ.com. Here’s an excerpt of his Night of Champions thoughts:
I watched WWENOC on my IPad for the first time Sunday night and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Great picture….fine audio and overall a good investment. Slowly but surely I’m entering today’s IT world.
Solid show with an outstanding main event is how I would describe the PPV. Thought Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton closed the show strongly and with a memorable conclusion that will hopefully garner them was water cooler talk in some circles.
Bryan is a wrestler’s wrestler who has paid his dues and is an exemplary member of the WWE team and locker room. Congrats to him and hopefully he will have a long, productive reign as WWE Champion. Time will obviously tell on that one.
It will be interesting to see if there is any fall out tonight on RAW between HHH and Orton because RKO came up short in Detroit.
Ryback aligning himself with Paul Heyman might be the best thing that Ryback has been able to accomplish since getting healthy. If Ryback is to become a major, major player in WWE then @HeymanHustle is the man to help Ryback accomplish such.
There is still money left on the table to see CM Punk FINALLY give Heyman an ass whipping somewhere down the road.
I seemed to enjoy the Ziggler vs. Ambrose US Title defense more than some based on what I’ve read and what I heard on PPV. I think that their placement in the lineup adversely affected their presentation. Good match though. These are two guys that I like a lot going forward and that WWE is lucky to have on the team.
AJ is still the alpha Diva in WWE and is the catalyst in that division. She totally invests herself in her TV persona and would have been great in the Attitude Era as well as any other era that I can recall since I arrived in WWE in 1993.
Good outing for the Prime Time Players even though their tag title bout vs. The Shield felt a little rushed. I love the positive steps the PTP have made in recent weeks and hope that they stay hungry and keep pushing hard to improve their game. Reigns and Rollins are going to be top hands and viable main eventers for years to come if they can avoid the injury bug and don’t catch “wrestler insanity.”
In many ways the PPV felt like many members of a new team taking one step closer to becoming ‘acceptably’ established. It’s a work in progress to arrive at the top and stay there. No one has a definitive time table and there are no magic formulas. It takes lots of working smart and praying that one can connect with the audience.
