The decision to have Sting challenging Seth Rollins for the WWE Heavyweight Championship at Night of Champions was not a long term plan. It was made recently. The belief is that management made the decision after they decided to make the Network free this month. By having a big name legend in the main event, the front office is hoping that it will encourage fans to subscribe to their online video service.

On Monday Night Raw, we found out that Seth Rollins is going to be defending the WWE Heavyweight Championship against Sting at Night of Champions. Management still has not made an official statement on the status of the United States Heavyweight Championship yet, but the belief is that Rollins will be doing double duty at the pay per view. John Cena is a candidate to get a title rematch that night.

Since WWE wants Nikki Bella to have fresh challengers and a long title reign, rumors have it that Becky Lynch will be the next diva to challenge her for the championship. It is much too soon for Becky to hold the title, so she will more than likely be used as fodder for the next couple of weeks. The spotlight should be good for the performer from Ireland.

WWE received some very good news last night when Sheamus showed up at the arena. The medical staff was able to clear him of a concussion.

There is a very good chance that John Cena might not heal quick enough to work Summerslam, so WWE has a couple of backup plans in place. The first one is simply to have Randy Orton challenging for the world heavyweight championship. If the front office does not feel that the match would be much of a draw, then there is a chance that they might add Sheamus and make it a triple threat.
