With the Night of Champions pay-per-view quickly approaching, WWE put its full focus into heavily hyping the event over the last week. However, there were also a handful of monumental moments and matches that made this week one to remember.
Edge, Goldust and Santino Marella all made their returns to Raw on Monday night. While Santino emerged victorious in his matchup, Goldust wasn't as lucky in his impressive outing against WWE champion Randy Orton.
SmackDown saw Orton confront Daniel Bryan on "The Cutting Edge," where the longtime rivals engaged in a heated argument. This led to Bryan getting the better of Orton and ending the show with the momentum on his side going into the event.
Additionally, Alberto Del Rio was finally able to exact revenge on his ex-announcer and former friend Ricardo Rodriguez. Will this lead to Rodriguez costing Del Rio the World Heavyweight Championship on Sunday night?
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.
