A championship changing hands and the slow process of the changing of the guard highlighted the best of the WWE this week.
The company stopped neglecting the United States Championship, resulting in a pair of entertaining matches and a number of Superstars getting a boost. All three members of The Shield showed once more that they are going to be key to WWE's future. A number of new acts joined the party as well.
A sloppy story inside a steel cage wasn't as fun as all those items.
The Bray Wyatt and John Cena rivalry added another haunting image, but it flopped much of the time before that. Brie Bella and Emma also had a poor week, both women stumbling in ill-fitting roles.
The action from SmackDown, Extreme Rules, Raw and NXT irked and elated, providing highs and lows in a week dominated by the U.S. title, cat-like screams and six-man warfare.
