WWE followed a tepid Night of Champions with a red-hot Raw.
Dusty Rhodes, Randy Orton, Curtis Axel and Daniel Bryan's allies were the stars of an exciting week of WWE programming, playing either the victim or the predator in their various storylines.
Rhodes returned and found himself ensnared in the teeth of the Triple H regime, Orton put The Miz on the shelf in dramatic fashion, Axel had one of his best bouts yet and the cavalry finally rode in. It's almost enough to make fans forget how much they regretted ordering Night of Champions.
From "The American Dream" taking a trip to the emergency room to a triumphant moment in Bryan's tale of torment, here is the best and worst of the week in WWE.
