Here's a look at the latest match-by-match results from the NOC card:

Night of Champions Kickoff Show

Renee Young hosted a pre-show panel that included Booker T, The Big Show and Alex Riley. They talked over their thoughts and predicted winners for the various matches. Booker did a backstage interview at one point with Goldust, his former tag partner. Goldust told Booker the old Goldust he knew was no more. Stardust came into the interview and acted weird towards Booker, then said he and Goldust were trying to take the "Cosmic Keys" from The Usos tonight.

Christian returned to host a special in-ring Peep Show with guest Chris Jericho. He talked about their former run as tag team champions, then after a small argument between them, Christian brought up Randy Orton and the match tonight. He talked about what sets Jericho apart from Orton. Orton showed up on the big screen to remind Christian that he put him out of commission before and was going to do the same to Jericho tonight. He told Jericho the only TV show he'll be appearing on after tonight is "Total Divas." Jericho told Orton he'll be appearing on "Total Jackass" and vowed to win tonight so Orton would never, everrrr mess with him again.

Stardust & Goldust vs. The Uso Brothers
WWE Tag Team Championship

Towards the end of the match the two teams traded some close near falls. At one point, The Usos hit multiple moves including a super kick, Samoan drop and suicide dive to the outside to take out Goldust and Stardust. One of The Usos went for the Superfly Splash onto Stardust late in this one. Stardust got both knees up to block it, and then took the pinfall for the win. Cole said it could be one of the most bizarre reigns in WWE history.

Winners: Goldust and Stardust defeated The Usos via pinfall to become new Tag Team Champions.

Cesaro vs. Sheamus
US Championship Match

Cesaro ducked the Brogue Kick late, and then tossed Sheamus up in the air to hit the uppercut. He had a pinfall but Sheamus escaped. Cesaro tried to follow with the Neutralizer but couldn’t lift the champ. Sheamus countered and eventually hit a move to slam for a near fall of his own. More near fall action followed with Cesaro trying for the Neutralizer and getting backdropped instead. Another Brogue Kick attempt, and Cesaro escaped it to hit a modified throw slam from his shoulders with Sheamus. Towards the end Sheamus was in the ring corner and getting hammered on by Cesaro. At one point, Sheamus blasted forward with the Brogue Kick to level Cesaro and finally got a winning pinfall.

Winner: Sheamus defeated Cesaro via pinfall to retain the United States Championship.

The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler
Intercontinental Championship Match

Country music stars Florida Georgia Line were announced to come down as special guests on commentary for the match. Damien Mizdow and R-Ziggler were ringside for their respective partners. During the match, Damien Mizdow got in FGL's faces, so they shoved him down before R-Truth took over. In the match Miz had a quick move late, where he had a rollup pinfall late and grabbed a hold of Dolph’s tights to secure it. Cole announced that Miz is a four-time Intercontinental Champion now.

Winner: The Miz won via pinfall over Dolph Ziggler to become new Intercontinental Champion.

Seth Rollins' music hit and he came to the ring with his Money in the Bank briefcase in hand. In the ring, he talked about how one minute you can be on top of the world, the next you can be Roman Reigns. He said emergency surgery is no excuse for not showing up for a match. He said in the interest of fairness he'd give Roman Reigns 10 seconds to get to the ring or he would forfeit the match. Rollins told the referee to have the bell ring for the match. The ref did so, then Rollins suggested he start the count. The ref did and eventually got up to 10. Rollins' music hit and he was announced winner. He said on the mic its not official until the ref raises his hand. So the ref did so before leaving.

Rollins said he knew the fans were disappointed so he would issue an open challenge to anyone in the locker room to anyone who wants a match against him right now. After several moments nobody showed up. Suddenly, the big screen showed a taxi cab pulling up backstage and Dean Ambrose got out of the back. Ambrose rushed down to the ring and started to attack Rollins, eventually clotheslining him over the crowd barrier and then brawling with him into the crowd. From backstage, The Authority came out with several security guards to intervene and hold Ambrose off. They did for a bit but then he jumped off a set piece to land on them all on the floor. He kept up his attack on Rollins into the crowd for more of a brawl in front of the fans. Ambrose eventually grabbed a steel chair as Rollins was in teh ring. He went after Rollins but security all tackled him. Triple H passed in a plastic tie to bind Ambrose's hands behind his back and take him away. A large group of officials carried Ambrose from the ring and backstage.

Mark Henry vs. Rusev

Mark Henry was already in the ring and Justin Roberts introduced him, before introducing Lillian Garcia to sing the National Anthem. Henry stood there to take in Lillian's singing and was full of tears. The crowd chanted U-S-A following the song, right before Rusev's music hit and he arrived out with Lana. Cole noted that Rusev is undefeated and Henry will try to finally conquer him tonight.

Early on in the match, Henry grabbed the upper hand and knocked Rusev out of the ring. Rusev tried to get back in, but Henry was ready to attack so he backed off. Henry went to the outside and Rusev grabbed control by ramming him back first into the ring post and steel steps. Rusev gained control later in the ring with a spinning kick to drop Henry. He went for The Accolade, but Henry powered out of it before he could lock it. Moments later, Rusev walked into World’s Strongest Slam, but Henry was favoring his back and unable to make a quick cover. Rusev rolled out of the ring to escape pinfall. 

Moments later, Rusev connected on a kick to Henry from the outside through the ropes. Rusev got back in the ring to hit another kick. Once in control he locked on The Accolade to make Henry tap out. Lawler said Henry getting his back slammed into the steel steps and ring post was what really cost him this one. Lana put the medal around Rusev’s neck and the Russian Flag was eventually lowered from the rafters.

Winner: Rusev wins via submission over Mark Henry.

Chris Jericho vs. Randy Orton

At one point in the match, things spilled to the outside where Orton began destroying Jericho. At one point, JBL’s hat got knocked down, but Orton handed it to JBL. From there, Orton slammed Jericho back first on the announcers table before returning to the ring for a near fall. He locked a headlock in with Jericho powering to his feet and battling back. Jericho eventually got back in control and hit a double axe handle off the top rope to take down Orton, followed by the bulldog. Jericho went for the Lionsault but Orton rolled away. Jericho landed on his feet and Orton hit a backbreaker on him. Moments later, Jericho connected on the Lionsault for a near fall.

Jericho tried for Walls of Jericho, but Orton countered it and sent Jericho shoulder first to the ring corner. Jericho was hunched over near the corner and Orton backed up for the punt kick. He went for it but Jericho avoided it and tried for a quick pinfall. He followed by locking Orton into Walls of Jericho but Orton resisted tapping out. He tried to crawl to the bottom rope and barely touched it but Jericho pulled him back to the center and sat down on Orton. Orton managed to roll over and through Jericho’s legs to punch him, then used both feet to send Jericho to the outside.

Jericho attempted to get back in the ring, but Orton grabbed him to hit the draping DDT from the ropes. Jericho was slow to get to his feet and Orton revved up for an RKO. As Y2J got up, Orton went for the RKO but Jericho surprised him with a Codebreaker for the near fall. With Orton still down, Jericho got on the top rope for the high risk move. He dove off at Orton, but Orton surprised him with the RKO. After a pause, Orton rolled over onto Jericho for the winning pinfall.

Winner: Randy Orton won via pinfall over Chris Jericho.

Nikki Bella vs. AJ Lee vs. Paige
Divas Championship Triple Threat

Early on, Paige and Nikki both rushed at AJ but she kicked both. AJ made sure Paige was knocked to the outside and then attacked Nikki to gain control. Nikki eventually regained control with a sleeper hold on AJ. Moments later, Paige went against the ropes and AJ yanked her foot from the outside. She pulled Paige to the outside and slammed her into the barricade. Nikki came to the outside and AJ slammed her to the barrier too.

At one point, AJ jumped off the corner but Nikki caught her and said “it’s over now.” However, AJ countered and put on the Black Widow. Before Nikki could tap, Paige was back in the ring and kicked AJ in the head. She followed up by kicking Nikki in the head and had a near fall on her, then tried for a pinfall on AJ. Moments later, Paige tried to superplex AJ off the corner, but Nikki came over to slam both divas together. All three divas were down. Moments later, Paige and AJ were left in the ring after AJ slammed Nikki off the apron to the floor. AJ put the Black Widow on Paige. Paige tried to counter, but AJ managed to re-lock the hold and Paige tapped out.

Winner: AJ Lee defeated Paige via submission to win the WWE Divas Championship.

John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar
WWE World Heavyweight Title Match

From the onset, Lesnar tried to grab Cena for the German Suplex. Cena held onto the corner ropes to block it and was able to bump Lesnar off him. He followed with a hard clothesline and then an Attitude Adjustment for a quick pinfall attempt. Lesnar soon started to dominate things. First he locked a Kimura lock on Cena trying to break his arm, but Cena managed to grab the bottom rope to break it up. Lesnar eventually got a German Suplex on Cena, and another one later on which threw Cena awkwardly onto his neck on the mat.

Cena tried to muster up some offense a few times, but was chopped down by Lesnar each time. Cena managed to start up some major offense finally with multiple punches and elbows to the face. He tried for a AA near the ropes but Lesnar countered with the German Suplex. Lesnar was busted open at the nose as Cole pointed out a bit of blood. Cena exploded moments later and hit another AA on Lesnar to lay him on the mat for a near fall which Lesnar escaped at 2. Cena tried for a STF shortly after, but Lesnar escaped it and countered with the Kimura lock. 

Cena managed to power up to his feet and then rammed Lesnar into the corner twice. Cena hit a third AA and then put on the STF. Lesnar tried to get to the ropes but Cena kept dragging him away from the ropes. Lesnar appeared ready to tap out, but Cena got impatient and grabbed him for a fourth AA. As Cena was trying to pin Lesnar, suddenly Seth Rollins rushed into the ring and smashed Cena with the Money in the Bank briefcase. The ref called for the bell as a DQ finish. Rollins bashed Cena in the head again and Cena fell out of the ring. Rollins posed with his briefcase for a bit, but then turned to look back at Lesnar. Sensing he was out of it, Rollins rushed over and hit a Curb Stomp on Lesnar’s head. 

Rollins went to the outside with his briefcase and handed it over to the ref. He demanded that they take his briefcase for a cash in so Justin Roberts announced he was cashing in, but the bell never rang to start a match. As Rollins was climbing back to the apron, Cena was back up and yanked him down. Cena started to beat up Rollins in the ring and eventually Rollins rolled out and fled up the ramp. Cena watched from the ring. Moments later, Lesnar was back up and grabbed Cena to deliver a crushing F5 on him, post-match.

Cole and the commentators screamed about what just went on, saying Rollins never got a match for the cash in, so he never officially used the briefcase. Meanwhile, Lesnar’s music played as he was still the WWE World Heavyweight champ. Cena was hunched over in the ring looking distraught as the Night of Champions PPV ended with Cole noting that Rollins cost him the title tonight.

Winner: John Cena defeated Brock Lesnar via disqualification when Seth Rollins interfered.
