Being a wrestling fan, there are times in which I can't help myself from cheering for the good guy.
In the case of the upcoming Sting vs Seth Rollins title match at Night of Champions however, I am rooting for Rollins.
From a neutral point, is Sting winning the title best for business? Let's take a look at a few possible outcomes for the title match and how they would go forward.

Sting wins the title
This will please many fans and WCW enthusiasts. Seeing Sting lift the title and being declared the WWE World Heavyweight Champion is surely something many would want to see. However, I don't see a Sting reign working out, and here's why.
Sting is still a part timer. He's only wrestled one match so far in the WWE, and giving him a championship in his second would be insane, even for a legend like The Vigilante. If he does win, I see it as just a way for WWE to give him a WWE title to add to his list, and if he won, I'm sure that we'll see the Celtic Warrior finally cash in.
I don't see either Sting or Sheamus as plausible champions, as one is a part timer who probably can't have a good reign, and the other has been firmly established in the mid card. And because of this, I find it unlikely Sting will win this match up.
Seth Rollins has been doing a pretty good job as a heel champion, and even shows off his wrestling prowess at pay per views.
Even if you hate Rollins, no one can deny he put in an amazing performance against John Cena at SummerSlam on Sunday. If Rollins does defeat Sting, I think it will again be with assistance, as Sting losing both of his matches in WWE would be bad enough, let alone losing clean to someone who has only retained his title cleanly once in his entire reign.
Sheamus could still cash in on Rollins, but I'd hate to see Seth's reign end, especially at the hands of someone who hasn't even been pushed as a title contender.
I think it's likely that there will be a screwy finish at Night if Champions, as something like a double count out or a no contest could prevent Sting's WWE run from being damaged further.
Make the right choice
I think it's pretty clear that a Sting title reign would take WWE backwards. Even a legend like The Undertaker winning the title would make for a meaningless reign, let alone Sting, who may not even defend it at every pay per view.
If Sting does win, it will just be to list Sting as a WWE World Heavyweight Champion, before Sheamus comes along and leaves with the gold.
In my opinion, Rollins is a great wrestler with good mic skills, and there's no reason to end the reign he started at WrestleMania 31. Rollins retaining would be best for business, and I believe that is what will happen, no matter how the match finishes.
