Villainy and viciousness delivered the best WWE moments of the week.
From Randy Orton channeling his inner predator to Goldust and Stardust becoming more savage, fans saw the heels taking center stage. Brock Lesnar was the star of Monday's Raw without even showing up. Tyson Kidd wore the most grating of grins after stealing a victory on Thursday's NXT.
Nikki Bella and Bray Wyatt didn't join in the success of their peers.
Nikki keeps failing with a mic in her hand. WWE keeps forgetting that Wyatt is supposed to be a monster.
The week's standout performances instead belonged to the WWE production team, Orton and the brothers now aimed at the tag titles.
