From a storyline and backstage sense, this past week has been an extremely busy one for the WWE. No Way Out took place on Sunday and while there weren't any title changes to note, there were two big happenings that could potentially change the course of the company over the next couple weeks.
Triple H made his return at the pay-per-view to address the lawsuits filed by Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman. Rather than stopping there, however, the COO did something that may expected would be coming sooner or later, as he challenged Lesnar to a match at SummerSlam.
Also, John Cena defeated Big Show in a steel cage match, prompting Vince McMahon to fire John Laurinaitis from his position as general manager. It remains to be seen how long Laurinaitis will be out of the picture, but WWE programming will be quite different in the meantime.
In addition to all of the storyline development, a WWE legend returned to television this week and another will be doing so next week. Rumors have been running rampant lately as well, particularly talk that a major WWE superstar has major heat with the company's brass and could be on the verge of quitting.
Read about all of that and more as I break down all of the latest news and rumors emanating from the WWE for the week starting on June 17.
