Daniel Bryan's version of the WWE Championship and Cody Rhodes' response to the McMahons waging war on his family rank among the best bits of WWE social media this week.
The biggest story coming out of Night of Champions was Bryan winning the WWE title. Before he had a chance to defend it a single time or make the talk show rounds, Triple H snatched it out of his hands.
Thanks to a fast count by referee Scott Armstrong, Triple H vacated the title.
WWE did have time to put custom plates on the championship, complete with his catchphrase. The company posted a shot of it on its Instagram page.
Bryan's short title reigns have certainly been frustrating, but it's been an intriguing narrative. The Masked Man (aka David Shoemaker) of Grantland posted a link to an article about WWE's choice to delay the audience's gratification.
The other marquee match from that event involved Paul Heyman upsetting CM Punk thanks to Ryback.
Asylum, the indy wrestler who played Heyman's doctor on a recent Raw, seemed to enjoy Ryback's attack on Punk. That's not surprising seeing how Punk throttled him with a kendo stick.
Ryback looks quite comfortable in his new surroundings, a kiss-happy Heyman and Curtis Axel at his side.
There is sure to be a beating that surpasses Punk's attack on the muscular doctor when Cody Rhodes makes his eventual return.
Last week, he watched Stephanie McMahon bring his brother to tears, and on this week's Raw, McMahon ordered Big Show to knock Rhodes' father out. Two of his recent tweets teased at where this storyline is going.

The only question is if Rhodes is going to bring his wrath down on Orton, The Shield or Triple H. He's not likely to hit McMahon with the Beautiful Disaster.
If he did, the best man to make the call would be the recently retired Jim Ross. Even though Ross officially hung up his headset, technology is allowing him to do play-by-play for the NFL.
William Moore of the Atlanta Falcons delivered a massive hit to a St. Louis Rams ball-carrier. Ross' call from Hell in a Cell 1998 is a perfect hit for the play.
The way that NFL quarterbacks have watched film of themselves to make themselves better, the NXT prospects will get the same opportunity.
NXT's new slow-motion cameras got shown off in this video posted by WWE on Twitter.
Paige looks good at any speed, and Adrian Neville's and Sami Zayn's offense is especially impressive seen like this. WWE has clearly given these prospects every tool available to sharpen their game, and fans will soon see the dividends when these talents make their way to the main roster.
Once they do, they'll hope for the kind of crowd reactions that WWE's biggest stars have received over the years.
WWE highlights some of the loudest pops in company history.
Steve Austin consistently had audiences making an insane amount of noise, but it's great to see so many recent examples of big-time crowd reactions. Will Bryan winning back the title rival CM Punk's reception in Chicago at Money in the Bank 2011 or Davey Boy Smith's win over Bret Hart at SummerSlam 1992?
WWE certainly hopes so.
