After a fairly lackluster week that caused RAW's ratings to drop even further, the WWE knew that it needed to do something big this week. Enter WWE Chairman Vince McMahon as he made his on-screen return to deliver a state of the WWE address, but not surprisingly he was interrupted by WWE Champion CM Punk.
That led to an old-fashioned fight between the two of them later in the night, with Ryback and John Cena both getting involved as well. It has been said that the WWE is always better when a McMahon is in the thick of things, and I believe that Vince really helped to elevate some of his top stars on Monday.
Some work still needs to be done with regards to the mid-card, but I'm much more optimistic regarding Hell in a Cell's prospects now than I was a week ago. That doesn't change the fact that WWE's roster depth appears to be quite thin right now, but I found myself much more entertained this Monday than last.
Here are my power rankings of the top 25 superstars in the WWE based purely on entertainment value and not kayfabe factors such as wins and losses.
