The WWE Raw 2015 results from Monday’s episode brought the rumors true as a few surprise appearances highlighted the show. In particular, “The Icon” Sting showed up to crash Seth Rollins’ statue unveiling, Ric Flair was on hand for a John Cena vs. Jon Stewart in-ring confrontation and the Dudley Boyz made their big return to WWE. One of the scenarios set up a Night of Champions 2015 match as well.
According to ProWrestling.net in their Aug. 24 report, the main event was officially set for Night of Champions after Raw ended Monday night. Triple H went on WWE Network in an exclusive interview and informed everyone that Sting will in fact take on Seth Rollins. The WWE site has listed this as a championship match. So it will be Sting vs. Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on Sept. 20 in Houston. This comes due to Sting appearing under the curtain in ring, as Seth Rollins was expecting to see a statue of himself.
Sting attacked Rollins as The Authority fled the ring. He would end the episode of Raw in Brooklyn hoisting the WWE Championship belt overhead for the crowd to see and pointed out at Rollins, making his request. The interesting aspect of the match being set up is that Sting lost to Triple H at WrestleMania this year and really hasn’t had a major win to put himself in that No. 1 contender spot right away.
Also showing up for Raw was Jon Stewart who arrived to the ring to talk about why he hit John Cena with a steel chair to cost him the championship win. He explained as Ric Flair arrived to the ring that it was to protect Flair’s record 16 title wins, which Cena would tie and possibly surpass if he beat Rollins at SummerSlam. An unhappy John Cena came out to let Stewart know he also made him lose the U.S. Championship. That led to Cena grabbing Stewart and hitting an Attitude Adjustment on him in the ring. Will it lead to any further matches or incidents involving the two? That will remain to be seen.
The other big surprise return of the night came earlier in the show as the Dudley Boyz came out after new tag champions New Day had won their match over Lucha Dragons. The Dudleys proceeded to attack all three members of New Day, leaving Kofi and Big E out of the ring as they ultimately grabbed a wooden table to smash Xavier Woods through. Could this be leading to a championship match at Night of Champions? It seems Prime Time Players will want their rematch first.
Night of Champions is the next pay-per-view on the slate and arrives on Sept. 20 in Houston, Texas. The event will be a WWE Network exclusive and is likely to feature almost every belt being defended from the WWE roster. It’s unknown if Rollins will have two matches due to being both the WWE World Heavyweight and United States champion.
