The Wrestling Observer is reporting that prior to Night of Champions, the creative plan was to have Dolph Ziggler go over Rey Mysterio and win the IC Title at the PPV. However, Mysterio was apparently unhappy with the idea of losing yet another title after winning it just a few weeks prior to the PPV, so he insisted that he have a longer title reign this time around. This dates back to Rey’s unhappiness with the way he was booked as the World Heavyweight Champion and he felt that this time around he deserved a long title reign where he could establish victories as opposed to another lame duck championship run.
