WWE Week in Review, Nov. 2: John Cena Captures Gold, New WWE Champion Crowned
John Cena won his third World Heavyweight Championship at Hell in a Cell.

The month of October for WWE was an interesting one, to say the least, but it unfortunately ended with a whimper. Sunday's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view failed to impress, and the subsequent edition of Raw didn't do much to help this viewer restore faith in the product.

However, Friday's SmackDown kicked off November with a bang and featured a substantial amount of entertaining matches and moments. With Survivor Series in three weeks, one would imagine WWE will start building toward the event this coming Monday on Raw.

Making his first televised appearance in well over two months, John Cena left Hell in a Cell with a title a tow, as he captured the World Heavyweight Championship from Alberto Del Rio. He wasn't the only new champion crowned at the event, though, as Randy Orton was successful in defeating Daniel Bryan to retain the WWE Championship.

After months and months of physical and verbal abuse from Paul Heyman, CM Punk finally put his former friend to sleep atop Satan's structure at the pay-per-view. The question now is if Punk can reset his sights on The Wyatt Family after the events that transpired this past week.

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.
