It was clear that things would be turned upside down in the WWE heading into this week as Hell in a Cell took place on Sunday, and the event certainly didn't disappoint. CM Punk retained his WWE Championship against Ryback as many expected, but the person who aided Punk came as a shock to everyone.
Rather than a run-in from Brock Lesnar, Big Show, Mark Henry or someone similar, referee Brad Maddox delivered a low blow to Ryback just as he looked destined to win the title. Maddox then helped Punk pin Ryback's shoulders to the mat in what was a surprising turn of events.
While that has been the main topic of conversation this week, there have been plenty of other things going on as well. The main event has already been set for this month's Survivor Series pay-per-view, an accomplished Diva is on her way out of the company, while a beloved announcer is due back in the very near future.
With Survivor Series quickly approaching, the WWE is reaching its busy season, so things aren't likely to slow down any time soon. Here are the biggest news pieces and rumors regarding the WWE for the week beginning on Oct. 28.
