[PPV Results] WWE Night of Champions 2012

Night of Champions has just concluded and for those of you who didn’t want to order the PPV or couldn’t afford it or were too busy watching the NFL, I’ve got the results for you in easy to digest form. Check it out:

  1. Pre-Show: Zack Ryder won a 16 man battle royal to get a shot at US Champion Antonio Cesaro on the PPV. (Ted DiBiase Jr. also made his televised return to the company in this match)
  2. The Miz (c) defeated Cody Rhodes, Sin Cara, and Rey Mysterio to retain the WWE Intercontinental Title
  3. Daniel Bryan/Kane defeated R-Truth/Kofi Kingston (c) to win the WWE World Tag Team Titles
  4. Antonio Cesaro (c) pinned Zack Ryder to retain the WWE United States Title
  5. Randy Orton pinned Dolph Ziggler
  6. Eve Torres (substituting for the “injured” Kaitlyn) pinned Layla (c) to win the WWE Divas Title
  7. Sheamus (c) pinned Alberto Del Rio to retain the World Heavyweight Title
  8. Main Event: CM Punk (c) fought John Cena to a Draw/Double Pin (Punk retains the WWE Championship)

So there are the quick results. Nothing too surprising, other than the fact Orton went over Ziggler (a ridiculous move in my opinion but maybe Ziggler will get his revenge this week on TV) and Eve coming out of nowhere to reclaim the Divas Championship (a damn good move). I’ve heard positive stuff about this show so maybe I’ll check it out on DVD sometime in the future. The way way future.

For an actual in-depth recap of Night of Champions, I highly suggest Jason Powell’s coverage over at his site ProWrestling.net

[PPV Results] WWE Money in the Bank 2012

Last night, WWE held their yearly Money in the Bank PPV. From most accounts, it was a lackluster show which makes me feel better for not having ordered it. But still the results are important, so here they are in quick, digestible form in the order they were presented at the show. Occasional comments from me included for free. Results come courtesy of ProWrestling.net.

Pre-Show: R-Truth/Kofi Kingston (c) defeated Hunico/Camacho to retain the WWE Tag Team Titles

1. Smackdown Money in the Bank: Dolph Ziggler defeated Tensai, Damien Sandow, Santino Marella, Christian, Tyson Kidd, Sin Cara, and Cody Rhodes to win the Money in the Bank.

  • Even though I’m still firmly in the “Cody Rhodes is the future” camp, the right man won here. Ziggler is ready to become a main eventer; here’s hoping he gets a legitimate shot and doesn’t get Swagger-ed.

2. World Heavyweight Title Match: Sheamus (c) defeated Alberto Del Rio to retain the World Heavyweight Title

  • Good to see Smackdown will never escape its “B-show” stigma. Sigh.

3. Primo/Epico defeated The Prime Time Players (Titus O’ Neil/Darren Young)

  • The Prime Time Players are the number one contenders to the WWE Tag Team Titles, yet take a loss and on PPV no less. Why wasn’t this on the pre-show instead of the tag title match? Makes no sense to me.

4. No-DQ Match for the WWE Title (w/ A.J. as the special referee): CM Punk (c) defeated Daniel Bryan to retain the WWE Championship.

  • This was definitely the toughest match to call, but I’m not all that surprised Punk got the victory. He’s a marquee player and as much as I love Daniel Bryan, Punk is better suited to be Raw’s top dog. The Bryan/Punk/A.J. storyline isn’t over though from what I’ve read of the results, but I think an interesting wrinkle may be added considering who won the Raw Money in the Bank…

5. Handicap Match: Ryback defeated Curt Hawkins/Tyler Reks

6. Six-Women Tag Team Match: Layla/Kaitlyn/Tamina defeated Eve Torres/Beth Phoenix/Natalya

7. Raw Money in the Bank (Main Event): John Cena defeated The Big Show, Kane, Chris Jericho, and The Miz to win the Money in the Bank

  • Even though The Miz made a most welcome return to the WWE by interjecting himself in the match, it was all but destined that John Cena was going to win the MitB. I expect him to get woven into the Punk/Bryan/A.J. storyline leading to a triple threat match at Summerslam for the title. Okay not expect; I hope that’s what happens. And given that Cena is WWE’s top star and the A.J. story is their top angle, it makes sense to weave them together. Could be fun.

So how’d I do in predicting the results (of the advertised matches)? I got 3/4 correct, with the Smackdown Money in the Bank being the only one I missed. I went with my heart instead of my head (Cody Rhodes 4 LYFE). I don’t regret missing out on Money in the Bank 2012 though; it looked very predictable and didn’t warrant the money WWE would’ve overcharged me. Maybe Summerslam will be a different story…

Did you watch Money in the Bank and love it? Feel free to comment and sh*t on my very ill-informed opinion!
