WWE Night of Champions: Should Zack Ryder Defend His Internet Championship?

Like many pay-per-view events in the WWE, Night of Champions is a pay-per-view that follows a theme. Some pay-per-views have match stipulations, be that Hell in a Cell, Elimination Chamber or Money in the Bank; Night of Champions, on the other hand, is a pay-per-view in which every title in the WWE gets defended. 

All WWE titles, from the (barely relevant) Divas Championship to the WWE Championship will get airtime tonight—all titles, that is, except one—Zack Ryder's Internet Championship. 

Sure Zack Ryder's title isn't a technically a real WWE title, but for all sake and purpose, it is a title nonetheless.

Ever since losing the United States title to Jack Swagger earlier this year, Zack Ryder has been trying to stay afloat, coasting on what is left of the huge buzz he generated for himself last year through his YouTube show, Z!True Long Island Story. Unfortunately for Ryder that buzz is dying down. 

Enter Heath Slater.

In the weeks leading up to the historic 1000th episode of Raw, Heath Slater managed to become relevant (much like Ryder in 2011) through a peculiar method—in Slater's case, the self titled, "One Man Rock Band" became a jobber to returning stars. 

Similar to Ryder, however, Heath Slater's buzz too has died down, but could there be some glimmer of hope for these two men? 

Now that "Raw 1000" has come one gone, could Slater's participation in a program with Zack Ryder be the key to help propel these two promising stars? 

For the past couple of weeks, Ryder and Slater have been part of an on-going mini-feud revolving around Ryder's victory's over Slater on Raw (and Zack Ryder's Internet Championship). 

Given the WWE's insistence of adding unannounced matches during PPVs, could a match between Zack Ryder and Heath Slater be what these two men need to finally become relevant again? 

If Night of Champions is a night when every championship gets defended, shouldn't the Internet Championship be given this right too?
