WWE has confirmed that Sting vs. Seth Rollins at WWE Night of Champions will be for the WWE World Heavyweight Title. Apparently Rollins will not be putting the United States Title on the line in this match. WWE wrote the following on their website for the match:
The Vigilante, Sting, is back, and he's coming for Seth Rollins' WWE World Heavyweight Title.
For the first time in his legendary career, The Man Called Sting will challenge for WWE's top prize, as he gets set to face The Architect Sunday, Sept. 20 at WWE Night of Champions, live on WWE Network... A six-time WCW World Champion, Sting has never before challenged for a title in WWE, let alone the WWE World Heavyweight Title, but he has been a recurring threat to The Authority. Starting with his WWE debut at last year's Survivor Series — during which he helped oust Triple H & Stephanie from power, albeit briefly—and culminating with his ruining of Rollins' celebration, Sting has repeatedly made his presence felt.
Will The Architect be able to survive The Vigilante's onslaught at Night of Champions? Or can The Icon add another accolade — the biggest in all of sports-entertainment — to his incredible resume, transforming the state of WWE as we know it?
Watch this historic showdown when it airs live at Night of Champions Sunday, Sept. 20, only on the award-winning WWE Network.
