Breaking Down the Best and Worst of the WWE for Week of Aug. 4

Heath Slater provided astonishment and NXT tag teams provided thrills on WWE programming in the first week of August.

Slater scored a pair of surprising victories, one of which was a highlight of Monday's Raw. The pursuit of the No. 1 contender's spot led to quality tag team matches on NXT.

Those high points balanced out having to say goodbye to Alberto Del Rio and WWE losing focus on SummerSlam too often on Monday night. Roster depth went down with the former and viewer interest did the same for the latter.

Slater's wins are the kind of unexpected development that rewards the patient fan, the prize in the bottom of the cereal box. With Mexico's Greatest Export gone from the company, it's certain that Slater won't extend his burgeoning streak against Del Rio.

That would have been a fun sight.
