The Night of Champions event is getting closer and as expected the outcomes of the matches are being discussed, the way a match finishes but even more importantly, who walks out the victor.
Headlining the event are Brock Lesnar and John Cena, in a rematch from their title match at SummerSlam where Brock Lesnar was crowned the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion in a dominating, one sided performance.
More of the same?
Heading into Night of Champions fans all over the world are expecting more of the same, that Brock Lesnar will defeat John Cena and walk out of Nashville, Tennessee with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship still over his shoulder – whether it’s another one sided domination remains to be seen.
That still could happen, however The Wrestling Observer Newsletter has reported that right now there are only two main options the WWE are looking at as to how the main event will finish.
Of course, right now it should only be treated as speculation as the WWE is infamous for last minute changes – such as The Undertaker’s WrestleMania streak, which was decided that it would end four hours before the pay-per-view went on air – so it still could change but it is interesting to speculate and to see if these options are the ones the WWE eventually go with.
Lesnar to retain
The first idea is that the defending champion, The Beast Incarnate Brock Lesnar will go on to defeat John Cena once more, but it’s not that simple.
- Brock Lesnar return frustrates superstars
- Cena vs Lesnar rematch confirmed for Night of Champions
- WWE: Five potential John Cena feuds
If Brock Lesnar is scheduled to defeat John Cena once more, the idea is for a WWE superstar to screw John Cena over, which opens the door for John Cena and said superstar to enter a feud from the following night on Monday Night Raw. This then allows Brock Lesnar to continue holding the WWE World Heavyweight Championship until WrestleMania 31 where he is heavily rumoured to be defending his gold against Roman Reigns.
The second option see’s John Cena exacting his revenge on Brock Lesnar and becoming WWE World Heavyweight Champion once more. Again, it doesn’t end there as a match expected to be confirmed is Roman Reigns vs. Seth Rollins in some form, whether it’s a singles match or involves a team; Seth Rollins is scheduled to lose.
A new champion
This then allows Seth Rollins to successfully cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase on John Cena and walks out as the new champion.
Again, these are only two options that are being considered right now and a lot could possibly change. If these two are the ones it comes down to I believe both have positives and negatives.
The first allows Brock Lesnar to look dominant and prove his one sided win wasn’t just a one-off; and it also allows another star to work with John Cena and that could literally be anyone at this stage. From Roman Reigns to Cesaro to Rusev, the options are endless so it helps Cena too.
The second option allows a full-time competitor as a champion, and I know fans cannot wait to see the day the independent’s Tyler Black reached the pinnacle of the WWE and became the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, also paving away for the dream WrestleMania match most fans want; a triple threat match between The Shield.
