Go To

Vengeance is a professional wrestling pay-per-view event produced by WWE. The event was first held in December 2001, replacing Armageddon for that year due to the possible insensitivity of the latter's name with respect to the 9/11 tragedy. In 2002, Vengeance replaced WWF Fully Loaded's schedule date, making it an annual event in July and featured the Raw and SmackDown! brands. The event was made exclusive to the SmackDown! brand in 2003 and then was made exclusive to the Raw brand in 2004. In 2005, the event was moved to June, switching schedules with The Great American Bash. In 2007, after WrestleMania 23, all PPV events became tri-branded, and Vengeance was promoted as Night of Champions which featured all WWE titles being defended.

In 2008, the event dropped the Vengeance name and is now named Night of Champions, later moving to September in 2010. After tentatively scheduling Night of Champions in 2011, the October-held Bragging Rights was cancelled, being replaced by the event once again under the Vengeance name.
