During a week that featured marquee stars standing in the spotlight, several unexpected names provided the best WWE action.
R-Truth, The Usos and Bo Dallas thrived. They had some of the most engaging and impressive performances this week.
The worst of the week came courtesy of WWE's handling of a new Superstar and a tepid conclusion to the Jan. 20 edition of Raw.
Batista's return lies somewhere in the middle. As great as it was to see him him standing in a WWE ring again, his first appearance on Raw in years didn't grab hold of the audience as well as The Usos' brawling, the Superstars on Main Event and the NXT champ.
