WWE Night of Champions Opener:
The show opens with a video package highlighting the championship theme of the evening, and the fact that every title will be on the line tonight, as well as the main feuds heading into tonight's show.
The pyro hits and that horrible Kevin Rudolph song plays again as Michael Cole welcomes us to the show. Cole begins the PPV with an update on Jerry Lawler. He talks about Lawler's heart attack on Monday and the events that immediately followed, including 15 minutes of CPR being performed on Lawler, which ultimately saved his life. Lawler is recovering, cracking jokes, and thanks the fans. And Jerry Lawler will be going home to Memphis this week. Cole gets ready to introduce Lawler's replacement for the evening, but Justin Roberts interrupts him, bringing out JBL.
JBL says this is a hard situation, and he's keeping Jerry's seat warm, but by the time he comes back, it might be on fire.
