This week, quite a few exciting things happened in WWE. A new champion emerged victorious in the main event of Monday Night Raw, Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson threw down with Chris Jericho, we saw the return of the Spirt Squad, and we were treated to a pretty solid build to the next SmackDown Live PPV - No Mercy. All in all, it was quite the entertaining week and we're pretty pumped for this Sunday.
So what was the better show this week? Was it Raw or SmackDown? Well, let's find out shall we as we take a look at the five best and worst moments this week in WWE.
10 5. WORST - Jey Uso's Quick Loss
9 5. BEST - Whoa. Jack Swagger
Jack Swagger's making the best list?
Yeah, he is.
Swagger has been under-utilized for years now, and his win via submission against Baron Corbin on SmackDown this week has given the former World Heavyweight Champion some much necessary momentum since the blue brand acquired him just last month.
8 4. WORST - Sami Zayn's Pointless Match
7 4. BEST - Orton's Mind Games May Have Failed
Randy Orton decided to turn the tables on Bray Wyatt this week and play the sort of mind games the Wyatt Family would normally play on their prey. And it was good!
6 3. WORST - The Golden Truth
5 3. BEST - Talk is CHEAP
4 2. WORST - Lana Outshines Roman Reigns
Roman Reigns opened up Monday Night Raw yet again to talk about how he's still "the guy" because he's the US Champion and all. Lana would interrupt him and try to negotiate with Reigns into giving her husband another shot at the title. Roman just laughed at her with his silly smile before Lana would shout for him to "go to hell!"
3 2. BEST - Dolphumentary
SmackDown's number one feud continued its upward momentum going into No Mercy. The Miz provided the WWE Universe with a Dolphumentary (ha), a documentary highlighting the career of his opponent Dolph Zigger. Or, well, highlighting his many failures throughout his 10-plus year career. It was funny as hell, and even two former members of The Spirit Squad returned to "cheer" their former partner on.
2 1. WORST - More Jobbers
Raw is continuing to throw local jobbers into matches and it really is starting to get old. Although we believed to have a silver lining after Braun Strowman insisted after his match that Mick Foley give him some real opponents, Cesaro and Sheamus later wrestled that night against two other local jobbers.
1 1. BEST - Sasha Banks is a 2-Time Women's Champion
Although Raw wasn't the better of the two shows this week, we were at least treated to a Women's Championship match, the first time the title would be defended in the main event since Trish Stratus and Lita almost 12 years ago.
Although the match may not have been as exciting as some of their previous matches of the past, Sasha Banks would score the victory against Charlotte to become a two-time Women's Champion in a moment that is sure to live on in Raw's rich history. Also, did you see Charlotte's corkscrew moonsault? Now that was a thing of beauty.
