In preparation for Survivor Series, WWE delivered a week highlighted by Big E Langston winning the Intercontinental Championship and dragged down by musical chairs and country music.
An underrated heel thrived in a segment on NXT, a Beat the Clock challenge made for dramatic matches and a 12-man tag team match showcased some of WWE's best talents. These positives largely offset the odd choice to build a match via musical chairs and to have a country music band get more screen time than Wade Barrett and Zack Ryder combined.
What engaged fans and what left them yawning? Let's do a running splash into the best and worst of the week in WWE.
