JR Blog: WWE Night of Champions 2014 Review, Cesaro/Sheamus “Match of the Night”, Lesnar/Cena Reaction

Jim Ross had a new Monday blog entry after Night of Champions, here are some highlights

on Night of Champions 2014
Solid show overall. Featured some good in ring action with a couple of really noticeably good contests. The Nashville crowd seemed to enjoy themselves by and large and when that occurs it helps make the show better for viewers.

on Cesaro/Sheamus
IMO the US Title match between Champion Sheamus and Cesaro was the match of the night. Great physicality, drama and compelling action for my taste. Congrats to both men. Cesaro could easily fill a viable fan favorite role on the depleted WWE hero side of the roster. There is money in ‘face Cesaro if it is cultivated.

on Rollins/Ambrose, Jericho/Orton
The Rollins/Ambrose brawl was a good piece of business. Both young men have bright futures and I’m somewhat certain that both will be WWE World Champion at some point in the future. Rollins leaving the PPV still with the MITB contract in tact is strategic.

Orton and Jericho had a stellar, wrestling bout. I wish Jericho’s right leg had been more a part of the story but the two had a good bout to say the least. From the commentary one could not tell who was the hero and who was the villain but that very may have been by design. That isn’t a complaint as both men got the star treatment as they should

on Lesnar/Cena
Enjoyed the intensity and the physicality of the Lesnar vs. Cena match but I wasn’t overwhelmed with the decision even though I understand why it was the way it was. It seems as if it was a means of facilitating getting Brock and John to the Hell in a Cell PPV in Dallas in a little over a month. As a fan of Paul Heyman, I’d liked to have seen Paul somewhat more involved in the presentation Sunday night but I’m certain that @HeymanHustle will be front and center come Raw from Memphis.
