Update 9/18: In an update about the event already, one competitor will be unable to compete on Sunday night due to emergency surgery. Roman Reigns was rushed to the hospital according to reports for incarcerated hernia, so he will not go against Seth Rollins as planned. In the other scheduled grudge matches on the card, Chris Jericho will battle Randy Orton in what could be a classic, while Mark Henry will take on Rusev in a match where the winner will have their flag unveiled from the rafters.
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
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.
WWE Tag Team Championship
Winners: Goldust and Stardust defeated The Usos via pinfall to become new Tag Team Champions.
Cesaro vs. Sheamus
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.
US Championship Match
Winner: Sheamus defeated Cesaro via pinfall to retain the United States Championship.
The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler
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.
Intercontinental Championship Match
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. RusevMark 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.
Winner: Rusev wins via submission over Mark Henry.
Chris Jericho vs. Randy Orton
Winner: Randy Orton won via pinfall over Chris Jericho.
