- The 2013 WWE Night of Champions pay-per-view kicks off with a promo video. What defines a champion? It shows footage of Bruno Sammartino, Hulk Hogan, Shawn Michaels, The Rock, The Undertaker, Steve Austin, John Cena, Triple H and many others.
- We’re live from the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit as Michael Cole welcomes us to Night of Champions.
- We go to the ring and Josh Mathews introduces Triple H. He talks about what’s best for business. In tonight’s WWE Title match with Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton, there will be no interference from anyone – The Shield, Big Show, nobody. Paul Heyman comes out with WWE Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel. Heyman has left messages with anyone and can’t seem to get a reply from Triple H. Heyman says he desperately needs to speak with Triple H and didn’t want it to be in public. Triple H cuts him off and says he looks terrible. Triple H asks when was the last time Heyman slept or showered. Heyman kisses up to Triple H.

It’s that time of the year again as WWE comes back onto pay per view tonight with it’s annual Night of Champions event. The premise, that every title is to be defended, falls a little by the wayside this year a the seven matches scheduled for the card make it appear a bit lackluster in terms of quality and seems to show the misdirection WWE has for almost every title that isn’t...

While wrestlers like CM Punk are great at speaking their mind and pontificating about how the current state of professional wrestling ticks them off or they feel “disrespected” or that no one understands them, the “sell” job of professional wrestling is a lost art form, a true ballet never to be heard from again.
WWE Creative has had its up and downs the last few years but right now they are writing its biggest hit in ages. The booking of Daniel Bryan is the best effort to get a new guy over in many years and for once the patience of creative has paid off.

WWE Raw opened with a video package recapping the low (Paul Heyman “pinning” C.M. Punk) and high (Daniel Bryan capturing the WWE Title) last night at Night of Champions.

There is only 1 potential game changer not currently on the market that could set the WWE on fire. He won’t be a free agent for another year but I dare you to tell me anyone that would make as big of an impact on the WWE for one year than Kurt Angle.
Do me a favor: think back to the ‘Attitude Era.’ Make a numbered list, one to five. Next to each number, write down the names of those men who best defined that short, yet ludicrously profitable, wrestling period from late 1997 until around 2001.
Now scan back over it. Who do you have?
‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin definitely makes the cut. So does Vince Mcmahon. Probably the...
