WWE's best moments and matches of the last week of July came courtesy of Dean Ambrose and Stephanie McMahon, steel chairs and lollipops.
From SmackDown to NXT, there was plenty for fans to savor on WWE programming. Ambrose delivered two excellent bouts, McMahon channeled her father's heel mastery and Adam Rose had a career high.
The latest news of WWE's financial situation tempered the buzz all that created, though. WWE is not in TNA's shoes, worrying that the network that runs their biggest show might not renew its TV deal, but business isn't flourishing at the moment.
John Cena deserves an honorable mention for opening Monday's Raw with a passionate speech and delivering the show's best match opposite Cesaro.
His standout work just falls short of making the list as Rose, Ambrose and McMahon created more lasting images and more career-changing performances.
