Night of Champions 2013: Bold Calls

The poster of an event often dictates a theme and who will be appearing. This year, Kofi Kingston landed on the cover and it’s not looking positive that he will have a title match. Kingston has such talent, and while the WWE has faith to feature him on a poster, he’ll be lucky to get a dark match.

With the chilly weather comes WWE Night of Champions. The former Vengeance pay-per-view is basically what it sounds like – a card where all titles should be defended. That’s not the situation this year as intercontinental gold has the night off.

With a week to go, the card is forming and there will surely be some last-minute additions. By last-minute, that means decisions made the day of the event.

While the following outcomes can come true (because I could be the Redditor user Dolphins1925 who has been leaking information), it’s a stretch. Hence, they’re labeled as bold calls.

    kofi should get a push the guy deserves it works really hard and fun to watch just needs to work better on the mic

    • Joseph Lisnow

      And he wouldn’t be the first champ who was awful at the microphone. Great Khali anyone?

      • Abudadein

        True, The Great Khali’s grammar, syntax and diction aren’t all that great when he speaks English, but when he speaks in his native Punjabi, he’s actually very, very funny, quite articulate, and has a ton of charm and grace. I’m not saying he’s on the level of CM Punk, but he’s not that bad on the mic if you understand Punjabi.

        • Joseph Lisnow

          Hmmmmm. You’re the first person to note that. Worth looking into.

  • Mrs. Ambrose

    Hopefully Dean Ambrose retains Natalya or Naomi wins and Daniel Bryan wins.

    • Joseph Lisnow

      I don’t know about all three leaving with gold. Those aren’t great odds.

      • Mrs. Ambrose

        Probably not but I am hoping.

  • Jay Ess

    I like the Ricardo ruse idea. Gives Del Rio’s heel character some depth and intricacy. Turns Del Rio from boring into cunning, sharp, and sneaky and it also makes Ricardo unquestionably loyal.

    • Joseph Lisnow

      Ricardo and Del Rio away is bad for the first name. Ricardo won’t make it without Del Rio.

  • godngreatnwoo

    i actually want dean ambrose to loose the us title not becasue i dont likehim but i would like to see him move on to a bigger title picture but i also dont want dolph to take a step back and win the us title months after he was world champion

    • Joseph Lisnow

      Ziggler’s an interesting choice. I just feel Ambrose doesen’t defend the belt outside of PPVs.

      • godngreatnwoo

        True same curtus axel theres really no.need for 2 mid card belts

    • Mrs. Ambrose

      I think he should go for the wwe championship or world heavyweight championship.

      • godngreatnwoo

        i think the wwe title it would be nice to see someone else in the wwe picture other then cena,punk bryan is good and i guess orton but it woould be awesome if ambrose won it guys awesome been watching him since he was in czw

        • Mrs. Ambrose

          He is and excellent wrestler and would be a great wwe champion.

  • Macho Man

    All you people who keep crying about WWE not giving Kofi a push let me let you in on a little secret, he’s BORING!!!!!! He is a great in ring wrestler, but BORING as hell in every other category that matters, such as charisma, and mic skills. He’s just one of those guys you watch wrestle and say, okay who’s next. For him to get any traction in WWE at this point I think they would have to turn him into a heel, and that might not even help!

    • tmeister

      They dont let him have a chance to practice on the mic, when we say push kofi when mean give him more time on the mic gets some intense feuds like he had with orton im not saying put the world title on him right now.

      • Macho Man

        He seems like a nice guy but the bottom line is he’s BORING!!!!!!!!!!! And WWE/Vince know it so therefore there’s no reason to give him more time.

        • tmeister

          They might as well release him if they wont give him time, if i knew I wasn’t going to get any push anytime i wouldn’t want to be there plus its mainly on wwe fault for not allow guys like kofi to do something different in his character as he said on some interview he wouldn’t mind being a heel but its all up to wwe if they allow that or not.

          • Macho Man

            I would say a heel run is his last chance at being a main player on the roster. Even that might not do it. He’s just a B wrestler overall.

          • tmeister

            i agree

  • JH

    I will be seriously disappointed if somehow D-Bry doesn’t throw some sort of curveball at HHH & Randy Orton, I think this is going to be a feud where the WWE title gets traded back and forth a couple times before its all said and done.

    • Joseph Lisnow

      I can’t picture Orton dropping the belt until January or maybe even Mania. They’re going to make Bryan work.

      • JH

        As it stands now, storywise the only reason HHH is allowing him this title shot is because he has to because of a champion’s rematch clause, so unless Bryan wins this Sunday or at the next pay per view, I can’t see the story making sense if every week HHH is calling Bryan bad for business, then putting him in title match after title match and losing for months.

        I like good long title reigns, but this scenario seems perfect for the title changing a couple times before coming to rest on one of the two superstars, kinda like when Punk/Cena/ADR were playing hot potato back in 2011 before Punk had his run.

        I don’t think the title needs to change at every pay per view though, but I definitely think the story would be better with Bryan going over Orton at one of the next two pay per views, and HHH finding a way to screw Daniel, probably Hell in a Cell until Bryan finally gets it back and has a well deserved run with the title through most of 2014.

  • Tsall13

    No one’s dropping any title at this ppv it’s not even a choice… they have heavily focused on putting the faces below the heels to make a face like Dolph win is horrible booking including making the shield drop the tag titles so soon after the storyline started… they all need to retain and Sandow needs to cash in on RVD and join the corporate storyline which I think is a great chance of happening cause I see Trips backing up Sandow to give him more of a heel rub… Orton shouldn’t drop the title anytime soon or his whole heel turn can be ruined and Orton has been waiting for this turn for awhile…

    • Joseph Lisnow

      Love Sandow working with HHH idea. They have in the past.

      • Tsall13

        Sandow aligning himself with HHH is nothing but good for business all around cause it shoots Rhodes right into the main event scene once he’s back and Sandow is great in the ring and on the mic… all fresh faces main eventing will be nice for a change… especially ones that can actually put on some great matches with anyone they work with… chance for everyone to step up and keep Cena away from the titles for a long long time

  • KingBack

    I hope for Rodriguez to go back to being Del Rio’s manager.
    1. Because him and RVD don’t fit or need each other.
    2. Del Rio needs him + it will give Del Rio some much needed heat.

    • tmeister

      Regardless people are still going to what to cheer Ricardo over booing del rio anyways

      • Joseph Lisnow

        Is Rodriguez more over than Del Rio?

        • tmeister

          Have you seen him during his time at fcw

  • Damian Starr

    I actually like the concept of NOC, it’s a lot better than some of the previous PPV names/gimmicks so i hope it doesn’t stop also it just sounds prestigious and classy. Secondly I always find i think Ambrose is the strongest out of the shield, whether thats down to how he is booked or not idk anyhow it would make sense for him to drop the strap though.

    I can’t see there being no title changes or John cena NOT being involved somehow
