From a monumental champion vs. champion match on Raw to CM Punk's SmackDown return, there were a number of things that made this week in wrestling extremely enjoyable. Some may say that WWE programming wasn't as exciting as it's been the last two weeks, but it wasn't bad enough to ruin this viewer's high hopes for Money in the Bank.
Speaking of the July event, there was plenty of hype for the pay-per-view on all three of WWE's televised shows this week. Three more matches were added to the card that were effectively built over the course of the week.
I found the first full week of July to be a successful one, but only time will tell if WWE can keep up the strong momentum in the coming weeks.
Here, I will break down the week in wrestling by analyzing the Monday Night Raw, Friday Night SmackDown and WWE Main Event broadcasts, including each show's highlights, low points and other noteworthy monumental moments. Also, an award will be given to the show and Superstar that shined the brightest over the course of the week.
