The 2014 WWE Night of Champions pay-per-view goes live on television and online via WWE Network on Sunday, September 21, 2014. The latest event will be held at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN. This particular night will feature every championship being contested in WWE. Battling it out in this year’s PPV main event will be John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar in a rematch for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship that Lesnar won at Summerslam. Will Cena be able to overcome the tough odds and beat his toughest opponent yet? Let’s take a look at the biggest matches on the live TV and online card, how to watch it, and the latest odds for this WWE event!
With every title up for grabs at Night of Champions, that means the Divas title, tag team titles, US Championship and Intercontinental Championship will all be contested, as well as the main prize – the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Paige is a -190 favorite to retain the WWE Divas title in her Triple Threat match against AJ Lee and Nikki Bella. The two challengers are listed at -150 to win. Dolph Ziggler is also considered the favorite to retain the Intercontinental title with odds of -300 against The Miz at +220. In what could be one of the few title changes of the night, the tag team champions, The Uso Brothers, are listed at +210 to retain their titles against Goldust and Stardust. The challengers are -290 favorites to win, and have already held the titles once before.
Another title change may come in the United States Championship match. Sheamus has been holding onto the title ever since winning an impromptu battle royal on Raw for it months ago. He’ll be challenged by Cesaro in his latest title defense at NOC, with both men listed with odds of -120, making for what could be an interesting match to see unfold.
Mark Henry vs. Rusev will determine which country’s flag is displayed proudly before the fans in the arena and watching on PPV. For months, Rusev has continued to defeat opponents and the Russian flag has been rolled down from the rafters. Mark Henry wants to put America’s flag in the spotlight again and the former Olympian believes he’ll do so at Night of Champions. These are two of WWE’s bigger wrestlers so it should be an interesting clash. Rusev has high odds 0f -750 to win, while Henry is a +450 underdog.
John Cena will take on Brock Lesnar in a big rematch for the WWE World Heavyweight championship in what should be the main event of NOC. Fans who saw Cena lose to Brock at Summerslam saw a complete domination by Lesnar in that match with at least 15 German Suplexes on Cena to throw him around the ring. However, the former champ is determined to reclaim his belt. Will he be able to do so? The latest odds seem to indicate that Brock Lesnar is a relatively heavy favorite at -460 compared to +320 for John Cena. Rumor has it Cena is leaving to film some movies in Hollywood and will be taking time off from WWE for a bit.
There’s two other feud matches on the card with no championships involved. Chris Jericho will take on Randy Orton after Orton attacked him recently on Raw. It’s expected that Jericho may be taking some time away from WWE so he could come up on the losing end here and may even get destroyed by Orton. Orton is the biggest favorite on the card according to 5Dimes with odds of -1700, while Jericho is a +800 underdog. If Orton were to get disqualified, that would be a hefty payout for Jericho backers. In other non-title match, the Money in the Bank briefcase holder Seth Rollins will take on his former Shield teammate Roman Reigns. Rollins already put his other teammate, Dean Ambrose, out of action for weeks after destroying him on Raw. Will he do the same to the powerful Roman Reigns? Odds have Reigns as a -350 favorite while Rollins is listed at +250. Don’t be surprised to see Dean Ambrose make his return during this match to get back at Rollins.
The latest pay-per-view’s main show starts at 8 p.m. EST with a special half-hour Kickoff show that starts at 7:00 p.m. EST. For the most, part subscribers to the WWE Network can watch these both live online at their specific times. The WWE Kickoff show will also be available on the WWE app and WWE.com as well as various social media platforms. During this pre-show, Christian will host a special edition of The Peep Show with Chris Jericho as his guest. Various pay-per-view cable providers will also allow fans to order Night of Champions pay-per-view including Cable One, Cox, Charter, XFINITY, Time Warner Cable, BrightHouse and more.
Make sure you don’t miss out on this latest live TV and online pay-per-view event from WWE as we could see a few of the championships change hands on this historic night!
