Background

This was the second Night of Champions event to take place within the WTX Universe. It took place following SummerSlam and was followed by Over the Limit.

The event featured seven matches, each of which was contested for a championship from across the RAW, NXT & SmackDown brands. The event featured Ted DiBiase Jr. defending his Light Heavyweight Championship against AJ Styles and a main event of Austin Aries vs. Samoa Joe for the NXT Championship from the NXT brand. It also featured Cody Rhodes vs. Damien Sandow for the Intercontinental Championship following the dissension of Team Rhodes Scholars, and The Rock vs. a mystery opponent, as he had been defending his championship weekly heading into the event, with the prior two matches being from SmackDown. Finally, the show featured a Diva's Championship match between veteran champion Lita and upstart Alice Lovecraft, The Disciples of Darkness defending their World Tag Team Championship against the newly formed team of The Real Americans, and a WWE Championship main event between defending champion Edge, and a former WWE Champion in Daniel Bryan from the RAW brand.

The first match of the evening between Ted DiBiase Jr. & AJ Styles saw DiBiase retain the Light Heavyweight Championship successfully, with DiBiase defeating Styles via roll-up. In the second match, Alice Lovecraft defeated Lita following a Uranage to win the Diva's Championship. In the third match, Damien Sandow defeated Cody Rhodes in an Extreme Rules grudge match following a Terminus to win his first singles championship, the Intercontinental Championship. In the final match of the mid-card, The Disciples of Darkness retained the World Tag Team Championship via disqualification when Jack Swagger & James Storm remained in the ring, ignoring the referees count of five.

In the first main event, NXT General Manager Ted DiBiase played a surprise guest referee role, screwing Austin Aries out of the NXT Championship, securing Samoa Joe's third NXT Championship win. Following this, SmackDown's main event saw The Rock lose the World Heavyweight Championship to a surprise opponent of the returning CM Punk.
