    Do you know how close we came to having this week's performer being Brie Bella? If it wasn't for The Corre winning on Superstars last Thursday next weeks entry might have featured a Bella as the front picture.

    Being as it is this week's top Superstar is Heath Slater who thanks to not being pinned in the first title defense on Raw and being the victor by pinning John Cena in the rematch.

    Rated-R dominance continues for another week with The Miz now becoming the most likely to take the top spot. In a way this is more how the table should look with the two World Champions on top and Alberto Del Rio's position shows that he at least lives up to his No. 1 Contender position. Unlike the other one who lingers at 13.
