The WWE has officially reached its busy season, and if the past week is any indication of how wild things will become moving forward, it promises to be an entertaining few months. The Royal Rumble is now just two weeks away and the WWE has kicked things into overdrive as far as the build goes.
The biggest news of the week comes courtesy of Alberto Del Rio, as he scored a huge win at the SmackDown taping in Miami that could change the course of the blue brand moving forward. Del Rio's newfound success is impressive when you consider the fact that he only turned face about a month ago.
Also, The Rock made his highly-anticipated return to WWE programming, as he and WWE Champion CM Punk closed out Raw. Punk had a lot to say after successfully retaining his title against Ryback, but The Rock is never at a loss for words either, and it led to one of the more entertaining WWE segments in recent memory.
If that isn't enough, a WWE legend has taken issues with Punk's promo, rumors are running rampant with regards to potential returns for next week's 20th anniversary Raw and the WWE has also reportedly signed a top independent star to a developmental contract.
Read about all of that and more as I break down the latest news and rumors surrounding the WWE this week.
Be advised that there is a SmackDown spoiler included, so if you don't want to know what happened, then don't read on any further.
