WWE Main Event results, Sept. 9, 2014: Former Shield members to collide at Night of Champions
WILKES-BARRE, Pa. — WWE Main Event on WWE Network kicked off with breaking news regarding two huge Night of Champions matches. Former Shield members Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins will collide, while Chris Jericho will battle The Viper Randy Orton.
Two Night of Champions matches announced
At the start of WWE Main Event, Michael Cole announced that former Shield members Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins will clash at Night of Champions on Sept 21. Also, Byron Saxton revealed it will be Chris Jericho vs. Randy Orton at the fall pay-per-view event.
Seth Rollins def. Jack Swagger
After Seth Rollins took credit for every success of The Shield and declared he will be WWE World Heavyweight Champion, he clashed one-on-one with Jack Swagger. The former Shield member came at his foe full of confidence, and Swagger met him head-on with his massive 270 pounds. Although The Real American managed to apply The Patriot Lock, Mr. Money in the Bank turned things around and scored a win with The Curb Stomp.
Cesaro def. Zack Ryder
A Broski Boot to the face had Ryder looking good at the start of the bout, but after a Cesaro Swing, Ryder was forced to submit to a painful leg lock hold. After the match, the Swiss Superman declared he is simply better than his Night of Champions foe, United States Champion Sheamus, and will claim The Celtic Warrior’s title.
