The 'Night of Champions' pay-per-view has ended. There are a lot things about the PPV that enthralled the WWE Universe and there are others that disappointed them.
The biggest talking point, though, from the night was neither Sting losing to Rollins nor Cena beating Seth.
It was the blockbuster announcement that Brock Lesnar will fight The Undertaker yet again at the upcoming 'Hell in a Cell' PPV in October. This match will be a part of Lesnar's 'Go to Hell' tour that will begin next month.

I personally feel that this is a great decision because many were unhappy about the way in which the SummerSlam match between these two superstars ended.
This is a great chance for both of them to gain the lead and make an emphatic statement to the world. I also feel that 'Hell in a Cell' should become the place where this saga should end. Here are three reasons why.
Let the scores be settled
It is now time for the creative team to decide who is big, rather who is important for business right now; Lesnar or The Undertaker?
The company has dealt with a similar scenario a couple of years back when there was an intense rivalry between Triple H and Brock Lesnar. Back then, after the scores were leveled, the WWE Universe wanted a decider, and they got one.
It was Lesnar who got the lead, and the rivalry ended once and for all. A similar situation is at hand right now, and it would be great if WWE gives one man the lead and give this rivalry a great finish.
With Kane back in the hunt, things could obviously get interesting and let's wait till the 25th. But no matter what happens, this should not be dragged into the next PPV.
Setting the stage for Sting vs. The Undertaker
Assuming that 'Hell in a Cell' will be the denouement of this tale, what's next for The Undertaker? It is obvious that 'Taker will wrestle at WrestleMania 32 which means that he needs an opponent to wrestle.
There is a lot of speculation that there is a possibility to see Sting vs.Taker at WM 32, but all that WWE needs to do to make this a reality is an opportunity to build a good story-line.
When both Sting and Undertaker are available at the same time, and when both men are not part of other storylines, is that not the ideal time to do this?
The Brock Lesnar utility factor
After Brock Lesnar signed a multi-year contract with the WWE, there has been a lot of flexibility for the company to use him.
He has already been a part of the WWE 'Beast in the East' tour and is now set to take part in the 'Go to Hell' tour. It is already almost certain that Brock will get at least a couple of World title reigns in the future, but, to see all that, the rivalry with the phenom should end first.
