WWE Night Of Champions 2023 (Wrestling Review)


Night Of Champions 

Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

May 27th, 2023


WWE World Heavyweight Title Tournament Final Match (vacant)
AJ Styles vs. Seth Rollins

A match with no feud for the new belt. Thankfully Rollins and Style are both great of making sure they have an even solid match. Clearly Styles had no chance but they still did a good match. Could have been a few minutes shorter but Rollins will be a good champ. 

3 / 5

Singles Match
Trish Stratus vs. Becky Lynch

Beckys outfit here was fantastic. Trish is in great ring shape still as well. This match though was just okay. The ending continues this feud going on and gives Stark a nice push. It just never felt really exciting. 

2.5 / 5

WWE Intercontinental Title Match
Gunther (c) vs. Mustafa Ali

I like mixed style matches like this. Clearly Gunther was winning but Ali got his time in and the crowd was super into him. Would love to see WWE do more with him. 

3 / 5

WWE RAW Women’s Title Match
Bianca Belair (c) vs. Asuka

This was a fine match. It was time for the title to change as Bianca went through the division and did everything she could. It helps Asuka is super over currently too. 

2.75 / 5

WWE SmackDown Women’s Title Match
Rhea Ripley (w/Dominik Mysterio) (c) vs. Natalya

A 1 minute squash. It is what it is. 

.5 / 5

Singles Match
Brock Lesnar vs. Cody Rhodes

I mean this was a match all based on their story continuing. Cody had to lose and look strong, Lesner got to play the mad guy, and otherwise it was just fine. Only way they go from here has to be in a hell in a cell match and I’m not sure who wins or comes off looking better when this is all over. 

2.75 / 5

WWE RAW Tag Team Title / WWE SmackDown Tag Team Title Match
Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn (c) vs. The Bloodline (Roman Reigns & Solo Sikoa) (w/Paul Heyman)

A solid match that will only be remembered because of the big story moment at the end. Happy to finally see another moment happen for this story as it was getting stale with nothing really happening. Sami was super over here too which was great to see. Will be interested to see where they go from here as Jimmy taking the belts from Reigns would be a huge moment down the line.

3.5 / 5
