'''Night of Champions''' was a [[professional wrestling]] [[pay-per-view]] (PPV) [[List of WWE pay-per-view events|event]] produced by [[WWE]]. This year's event took place on September 15, 2013 at the [[Joe Louis Arena]] in [[Detroit]], [[Michigan]]. It was the seventh annual [[WWE Night of Champions|Night of Champions PPV]], and the eighth PPV in the 2013 lineup. The theme of this PPV was that every championship in WWE was defended.
 
 
The event received 175,000 buys, which is down from [[Night of Champions (2012)|last year's event]] of 189,000.<ref>{{cite press release|url=http://ir.corporate.wwe.com/Cache/1500053740.PDF?Y=&O=PDF&D=&FID=1500053740&T=&IID=4121687|title= WWE Reports 2013 Third Quarter Results|publisher=WWE|date=October 31, 2013|accessdate=October 31, 2013}}</ref>
 
 
==Background==
 
Night of Champions featured [[Professional wrestling match types|professional wrestling matches]] that involved different wrestlers from pre-existing feuds, [[Plot (narrative)|plots]], and [[narrative thread|storylines]] that played out on WWE's primary television programs, ''[[WWE Raw|Raw]]'' and ''[[WWE SmackDown|SmackDown]]''. Wrestlers portrayed [[Heel (professional wrestling)|villains]] or [[Face (professional wrestling)|heroes]] as they followed a series of events that built tension and culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches.<ref name="HSW">{{cite web|url=http://entertainment.howstuffworks.com/pro-wrestling.htm|title=How Pro Wrestling Works|last=Grabianowski|first=Ed|work=HowStuffWorks, Inc.|publisher=[[Discovery Communications]]|accessdate=March 5, 2012}}</ref><ref>{{cite web|url=http://corporate.wwe.com/company/events.jsp|title=Live & Televised Entertainment|publisher=[[WWE]]|accessdate=March 21, 2012}}</ref>
 
 
Following his win over [[John Cena]] at [[SummerSlam (2013)|SummerSlam]], [[Daniel Bryan]] lost the [[WWE Championship]] when special guest referee and [[professional wrestling authority figures|COO]] [[Triple H]] attacked Bryan, allowing [[Randy Orton]] to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase to win the championship. Triple H and the McMahons stated it was "best for business" because Bryan did not "fit the mold" to be WWE Champion. Naming Orton the new face of WWE, they also formed an alliance with [[The Shield (professional wrestling)|The Shield]]. Leading up to Night of Champions, Bryan was forced to compete in several challenging matches, including a steel cage match with [[Wade Barrett]], a gauntlet match against the three members of The Shield, and a match with [[Big Show]]. After defeating [[Dean Ambrose]] on the September 9 episode of ''Raw'', Bryan was again assaulted by the rest of The Shield and Orton.
 
 
On August 5, [[Rob Van Dam]] defeated [[World Heavyweight Championship (WWE)|World Heavyweight Champion]] [[Alberto Del Rio]] in a non-title match after [[Ricardo Rodriguez (wrestler)|Ricardo Rodriguez]]'s interference backfired. After the match, Del Rio attacked Rodriguez. Two weeks later, Rodriguez returned to inform Del Rio that he was now representing Van Dam. Van Dam continued to attack Del Rio, both on ''Raw'' and ''SmackDown'', and on the August 26 episode of ''Raw'', Van Dam won a non-title match over Del Rio due to Rodriguez's help. On September 6, Del Rio cost Van Dam a non-title match against Randy Orton, and attacked him after the match. The following week, [[Vickie Guerrero]] forced Rodriguez to face Del Rio. After winning the match, Del Rio put Rodriguez in ''Cross Armbreaker'' until Van Dam made the save.
 
 
After being defeated by [[Brock Lesnar]] at SummerSlam, [[CM Punk]] continued his feud with Paul Heyman, thus starting another one with [[WWE Intercontinental Championship|Intercontinental Champion]] [[Curtis Axel]] by attacking him the next night on ''Raw''. Four days later on ''SmackDown'', Axel challenged Punk to a match, which Punk accepted. On August 26, on ''Raw'', Punk defeated Axel in a singles match and by vote of WWE Universe, Heyman would be forced to face Punk in the ring, but Axel interfered and attacked Punk. Heyman also joined in the assault. [[Brad Maddox]] granted Punk's wish of facing Heyman by giving him an elimination handicap match at Night of Champions against Axel and Heyman.
 
 
On the August 26 episode of ''Raw'', [[AJ Lee]] interrupted the celebration over [[The Bella Twins|Brie Bella]]'s victory in a SummerSlam rematch against [[Natalya (wrestler)|Natalya]], berating the cast of ''[[Total Divas]]'', calling them "interchangeable" and "expendable" and stating they were not good enough to be wrestlers so they went into [[reality TV]].<ref name="Pipebombshell">{{cite web|url=http://www.wwe.com/shows/raw/2013-08-26/wwe-raw-results-26143822/page-5|title=Raw results: Bryan suffers corporate justice against Orton and The Shield|accessdate=September 1, 2013|date=August 26, 2013|publisher=[[WWE]]}}</ref> On the September 2 episode of ''Raw'', AJ Lee interfered in a triple threat match between Natalya, [[Naomi Knight|Naomi]], and Brie Bella, which was to determine the number one contender for her Divas Championship. As a result, [[Stephanie McMahon]] announced that AJ would defend her Divas Championship in a fatal four-way match against Natalya, Naomi and Brie Bella at Night of Champions.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.wwe.com/shows/raw/2013-09-02/wwe-raw-results-26145577/page-8|title=The Triple Threat Divas Title No. 1 Contender's Match went to a No Contest|publisher=[[WWE]].com|accessdate=September 3, 2013}}</ref>
 
 
On the September 9, 2013 episode of ''Raw'', it was announced that a Tag Team Turmoil Match to decide the number one contenders for the WWE Tag Team Championship would take place during the Night of Champions Kickoff, with the winners challenging champions [[The Shield (professional wrestling)|The Shield]] ([[Roman Reigns]] and [[Seth Rollins]]) later in the night.
 
 
On the September 13 episode of ''SmackDown'', [[Dolph Ziggler]] faced [[Dean Ambrose]] for a title shot opportunity for the United States Championship at Night of Champions. Although Reigns and Rollins interfered when Ziggler was closing in on the win, he was still given the championship match.
 
 
==Aftermath==
 
The next night on ''Raw'', [[Daniel Bryan]] was stripped of the WWE Championship by [[Triple H]], because [[Referee (professional wrestling)|referee]] [[Scott Armstrong (wrestler)|Scott Armstrong]] made a fast 3-count, and Triple H seemed to think Bryan was in on it as a conspiracy. He then punished Bryan more by putting him in a match with Roman Reigns; though Bryan won, he was again assaulted by the rest of [[The Shield]] and Orton. Orton put Bryan's head in between the folds of a chair, but before he could further injure Bryan, the majority of face WWE superstars ran to the ring and attacked Orton and The Shield, with Bryan finishing them off with a high knee to [[Seth Rollins]].
 
 
At Night of Champions (2013) [[Rob Van Dam]] won his World Heavyweight match by [[Professional wrestling#Disqualification|disqualification]] when [[Alberto Del Rio]] refused to release the Cross Arm Breaker, despite Van Dam reaching the ropes. On the September 20th episode of ''SmackDown'', Triple H gave Van Dam a rematch with Del Rio at [[WWE Battleground|Battleground]] for the World Heavyweight Championship. Immediately afterwards, Del Rio would proceed to viciously assault RVD backstage.
 
 
[[CM Punk]] began feuding with [[Paul Heyman]] in July after Heyman cost him the [[Money in the Bank ladder match]] for a [[WWE Championship]] contract. This resulted in Punk fighting and losing to [[Brock Lesnar]] at [[SummerSlam (2013)]]. Punk continued to feud with Heyman and his other client, [[Curtis Axel]] resulting in a handicap elimination match at Night of Champions (2013). After Axel was eliminated, Punk handcuffed and beat down Heyman much like Heyman had done to him a couple of weeks prior on ''Raw''. However, [[Ryback]] made the save, putting Punk through a table and costing him the match. On the September 23 episode of ''Raw'' it was announced that Punk would face Ryback at [[WWE Battleground|Battleground]].
 
 
==Reception==
 
Shore, from ProWrestlingNet, said that the event was absolutely terrible, "by far, the worst PPV of the year".<ref>http://www.prowrestling.net/artman/publish/WWEPPVreports/article10033375.shtml {{verify credibility|date=September 2013}}</ref> Jason Powell, from ProWrestlingNet, said that the event was "highly forgettable" and the title change "didn't feel like a real WWE moment".<ref>http://www.prowrestling.net/artman/publish/WWEPPVreports/article10033373.shtml {{verify credibility|date=September 2013}}</ref> James Cadwell, from PWTorch, said that the main event was "acceptable, but not strong enough to push this PPV out of thumbs down territory." He gave the Bryan/Orton main event a 3 stars out 5, the highest note of the event.<ref>http://pwtorch.com/artman2/publish/wweppvs/article_73322.shtml#.UjdE7EDl58E</ref>
