Night Of Champions Recap

CM Punk lost the World Championship to Jeff Hardy
Very solid match. I was wrong on the outcome.

Randy Orton retains the W.W.E. Title in match vs. Triple H and John Cena
Good match. The ending allowed for more.

Chris Jericho and Big Show defeated Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase
When I initially went over some names here as to who would replace Edge as Jericho's partner I wrote of Big Show:

Big Show – It seems that Mark Henry and Big Show will eventually meet up on Raw and with Henry’s run-in with Jericho last night this may make some sense. Of course, then Henry would have to go grab a tag team partner.

So does this mean Mark Henry teams with someone, say, Evan Bourne?

E.C.W. Champion Tommy Dreamer lost the belt to Christian
Dreamer isn't in Christian's league, but I was surprised he lost the title in his adopted hometown of Philly.

Rey Mysterio retained the Intercontinetal Championship against Dolph Ziggler
In my opinion, this was the best match of the show. Good long match and it made me a believer in Ziggler.

U.S. Champ Kofi Kingston vs. Primo vs. MVP vs. Carlito vs. Jack Swagger vs. The Miz
Very exciting match in which Kingston shined. The match also set up a future Swagger-Kingston bout.

W.W.E. Women's Champ Michelle McCool vs. Melina
McCool won.

W.W.E. Divas Champ Maryse vs. Mickie James
Sloppy match, with James winning the title.
