The one event each year where every title is on the line, the WWE presented Night of Champions on Sunday night, Sept. 16. The great news when the show started was the addition of JBL to the announce team to replace Jerry Lawler, who suffered a heart attack on WWE Monday Night War last week.
Randy Orton and Dolph Ziggler put on a solid match at Night of Champions. But it may have seemed like Ziggler’s night going into this match, Orton would be the one to come out on top in the end.
In this context, the main event is big because WWE Champion CM Punk puts his title on the line against John Cena. Punk now has Paul Heyman at ringside as his manager and the match is in Cena’s hometown of Boston. Punk still gets a lot of cheers.
In this connection, the match was arguably the best of their series against each other, well over 20-minutes with both men kicking out of the other’s finishing moves. Punk even delivered the Rock Bottom and Cena still kicked out. It all led to Cena seemingly beating Punk for the WWE Championship with a top rope German suplex. However, both men’s shoulders were down on the mat and the referee declared it a draw, a horrible ending to a fantastic match.
