Night of Champions 2012


#1-Intercontinental Championship: The Miz (c) vs Cody Rhodes vs Rey Mysterio vs Sin Cara: ★ ★ ★ 1/2

Pretty good match. I thoroughly enjoyed this, I feel its underrated. The portions of Rey vs Cara were a bit slow and clunky though. I dislike the overused corner spot but I liked the finish with a blind Miz dropping Cody with the SCF to get the win.

.
#2-Tag Team Championship: Kofi Kingston & R-Truth (c) vs Kane & Daniel Bryan: ★ ★ ★

Man the crowd absolutely LOVES Daniel Bryan. They like him so much they booed the faces. Kofi's hilo was a good spot (and he landed on his feet....sheesh). Pretty clunky finish but told the story of the unlikely duo bumbling into a win.

.
#3-United States Championship: Antonio Cesaro (c) vs Zack Ryder: ★ ★

This was a pretty surprising contest because I actually expected to dud the fuck out of it. Crowd really into Ryder makes for good atmosphere. Ryder got some good offense in, his suplex counter into the neckbreaker was cool. You gotta love Cesaro's flapjack into the uppercut...which looked brutal. They did a good job of putting Ryder over by him not being destroyed and looking competitive.
.
#4-Dolph Ziggler vs Randy Orton: ★ ★ ★

Man Ziggler is over, "Let's Go Ziggler" chants break out early...a smattering of boos for Randy which is surprising to say the least. Orton is incredibly uninspired in this match it seems. This match is slow, totally not what he and Ziggler are capable of, despite this the crowd breaks out into dueling "Let's Go" chants. I loved Randy's early slingshot suplex spot (word to Tully Blanchard) and the Fame Asser (Rocker Dropper) counter into a powerbomb as well. Zigs landed a leaping DDT, which was pretty cool. The match picked up the pace during "boo/yay" spot, which was awesome.. they were throwing hands so fast the crowd got confused they were heavy into Ziggler at that point. Awesome DDT on the floor by Randy, creative way to do that spot. Pretty dope flapjack into the RKO to finish. The match was fine for what it was but it leaves me confused. It had a huge PPV atmosphere with the crowd going ape for both but the action spoke more to it being a RAW/SD TV match...not really PPV worthy.
.
#5-Divas Championship: Layla (c) vs Eve ★

I love me some Layla, I want her to mother my children, she's so damn cute. Her cheeks and face just make me wanna..... and Eve is FINE as in model FINE definitely the kind of woman my mama would tell me to stay away from....both very beautiful women in very different ways. I actually dig the chain wrestling they did. Layla is a better technician than some of the guys and Eve is a better heel than most of the guys (and as a Black heterosexual male I think her entrance theme kinda rocks it fits her perfectly). They actually putting in some work here, crowd doesn't give a fuck though. I didn't know Eve had a finisher but it looked cool, nice move.
.
[I literally LOL'd at Kane dumping Gatorade on Bryan. Its was so ridiculous and it took me by surprise]
.
#6-World Heavyweight Championship: Sheamus (c) vs Alberto Del Rio: ★ ★ ★

Why in the fuck are they changing the rules right before the bell rings?! I hate to be THAT guy but small stuff like that is indicative of what's wrong with WWE. The heels are disadvantaged instead of the face being disadvantaged. Diatribe aside, Sheamus completed a good spot with the battering ram from the apron and the spot where Sheamus arm is trapped into the ropes was also a pretty good spot. Beautiful application of ADR's cross-armbreaker done as well. The match itself is a pretty pedestrian affair, their opportunity to tell a different story was blown to bits before the opening bell however. If you've seen any of their previous matches this is no different. I truly believe that heel ADR was handicapped with a submission finisher since none of the top faces ever submit and all the stories of his matches revolved around him weakening the arm for its effectiveness.
.
#7-WWE Championship: CM Punk (c) vs John Cena:
★ ★ ★ ★ 3/4

I totally forgot about the build to this match but jesus the video package was so well done I feel like this is huge for the careers of both guys. Such intensity from Cena is a rarity these days, I had to call somebody an "ignorant son of a bitch" in commemoration.


An actual slow, traditional start to this one, I'm surprised because Its too much like 80s pro-wrestling. The procrastinating heel picking his spots. I mean damn a drop toe hold into a bridge? Since when do they do that? A very timely "that is wrestling" chant, from the smarks I bet. Fisherman buster on the floor was a good spot and goes into the theme of doing signature spots in different positions at this event.


Punk shows some intelligence by blocking most of Cena's signature spots and offense which is a creative direction for the match and usually a guy only counters one or two moves. Cena's strength really on display to counter and break free of Punk's intelligent offense.


WHAT THE FUCK?!?! A suicide dive from Cena?!?! Lol crazy, gotta give John Boy credit that was very well done.

A wonderful Anaconda Vice into the STF into the crippler crossface chain...Punk's counters are on point. Cena's GTS counter into the STF was also very well done, I'm actually surprised at this match. Cena kicking out of the GTS wasn't much of a surprise but the crowd really popped for it, a small "let's go cena" chant breaks out afterwards..the atmosphere has been awesome all night by the way, Boston rocked!


JBL really helps the story move along. He basically telling you what's going on. That's great commentating. He also brings intelligence and experience to the booth.


Punk's moonsault was very, very ugly....but it furthers the story of Punk trying to find a way to keep Cena down...he whiffed it terribly though, he would have missed even if Cena didn't move. Punk is desperate, you can feel it, see it and understand it.


This match is fuckin awesome! (The crowd agrees).

The finish was......not good, very clunky and awkward. Incredibly anti-climatic but what a fantastic story and well worked match. I don't mind the draw but there had to be a better way to do it. This match was obviously used to set up the HIAC match that never came but incredible match nonetheless.



I love Night of Champions as an event, once again its my favorite PPV of the year.

I know the topic was already covered but I would like to see Heyman give his 2 cents on this topic.
Are these roundtables uploaded on Youtube anywhere? The recent ones I mean, I'm aware of the older ones being up.

Awesome from a nostalgic standpoint + myself being a WCW mark. Only matches I recall jumping out at me are Pillman vs Liger & Benoit vs Eddie (which was just about the best match on Nitro during '95)

Sting worked vs Malenko. Do believe it was far too short to be anything special. Which was the same for Flair vs Anderson in the Cage. Oh, the Joshi tag following World War 3 was quality. I'll show some love there. Remembering every single detail would be much easier if I was home atm with my BOOKS.

Yet, I remember the classic Giant vs Cobra match. Why?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

~!

Got to love that steampile which was called the matches for WWE TV this week. Not going to say I'm surprised considering the year one begin on a high note till RAW on monday, but wow did every match have to be blah or suck? Guess I shouldn't complain. Kofi Kingston is back to jobbing, Heath Slater got exposure, & Antonio Cesaro main evented Smackdown + destroyed the Great Khali. This won't stand from now on. I want at least a quality match per week again. Not a Mae Young pregnant segment that makes me far and way baffled to question why I love this stuff. Fuck me. The hand was better...

Disappointment rant over. Catching up on 2011 atm. What's next: Summerslam or TLC?

These are the latest two episodes. Both are really good like most of the roundtable topics they feature.





Much gratitude to
