Monday Night Raw this week emanated from Des Moines, Iowa.
For the second week in a row, Raw kicked off with Triple H in the ring with The Shield on the outside. It also ended the same way as the last couple of weeks—with Daniel Bryan laid out in the middle of the ring.
There wasn't a lot of action this week with only seven matches. There was a lot of filler and recap videos.
With that being said, let's look back at Raw and find out who were the biggest winners and losers.
Cody Rhodes: Winner
Despite being "fired" after losing to Randy Orton, Cody Rhodes had a fantastic match against the WWE champion. The crowd was hanging on every move, especially when Rhodes hit his finisher and got the near fall.
Rhodes has now moved on from his rivalry with Damien Sandow and will be a main part of the Bryan/Triple H/Orton feud.
Whenever Rhodes decides to come back, he should get a huge babyface reaction. This will lead to a world title shot later this year or next year.
Damien Sandow: Loser
Speaking of The Intellectual Savior of the Masses, Sandow is currently in limbo. He lost two consecutive matches to Rhodes at SummerSlam and the next night on Raw.
He has now lost to Rob Van Dam two times over the last week. Sandow's last win was against Justin Gabriel at the July 22 taping of WWE Main Event.
Although Sandow carries the Money in the Bank briefcase, nothing good comes from holding on to it. Dolph Ziggler and Bryan both lost frequently before they cashed in.
Sandow could easily become world champion, but until he begins a meaningful feud, he's just jobbing to the stars.
Bray Wyatt: Winner
Another week, another awesome Bray Wyatt promo. This week, he compared Kane not listening to him to Icarus not obeying his father's orders and flying too close to the sun.
These promos are great for many reasons. They keep Wyatt relevant with the WWE Universe by not overexposing the Family. They also continue the feud between Wyatt and Kane.
While his SummerSlam match wasn't the best, Wyatt is still one of the best characters in WWE today.
The Miz and Fandango: Losers
This feud between The Miz and Fandango just began, but it feels like it's been going on forever. It started at SummerSlam when Fandango kept interrupting The Miz's backstage segments.
The two fought on this week's Raw. After seven minutes of action, The Miz defeated Fandango.
When will Cody Rhodes return?
Miz has been acting more heelish over the last couple of weeks, but that's nothing new with his character. With the supposed babyface picking up the win over the heel, where else can this feud go?
Big Show is playing his role perfectly, looking sympathetic toward Bryan but reluctantly following Triple H's orders.
CM Punk cut an excellent promo on Paul Heyman, Curtis Axel and their match at Night of Champions.
The Prime Time Players continue their winning ways, picking up a victory over Heath Slater and Jinder Mahal of 3 Man Band.
