Just 24 hours removed from WWE's Money in the Bank pay-per-view, Monday Night Raw emanated from the beautiful Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

On the heels of the best pay-per-view of 2013 (so far), the sports entertainment empire delivered one of the finest episodes of its flagship program in years.

A night of solid wrestling matches and phenomenal angle advancement was capped off by a pay-per-view-quality main event featuring the returning Rob Van Dam taking on Chris Jericho and a promo segment in which Daniel Bryan's summer-long elevation continued, with John Cena choosing him as his SummerSlam opponent.

Elsewhere on the show, Brad Maddox had a great first night as Raw GM, despite Triple H and Stephanie McMahon's attempts to sway his decision-making. Mark Henry and Cody Rhodes officially switched from villains to heroes, while Dolph Ziggler and AJ Lee split rather unceremoniously.

The Wyatt family made another tremendous impact, Randy Orton continued his winning ways and the never-ending Funkadactyls-Bella Twins rivalry was represented as Naomi took on Brie.

And let's not forget CM Punk and Paul Heyman delivering the goods on the mic, while Brock Lesnar once again showcased his animalistic brutality.

The July 15 edition of Raw may very well go down as a night in which the landscape of World Wrestling Entertainment began to change for good, with the young stars being spotlighted and two veterans of the ring wars proved they could still deliver when called upon.

This is the good, the great and the awesome from Monday night's broadcast.
