Kane returned to Raw and squashed The Miz in just a few minutes. The highlight of this duel was Kane’s post-match interview, where Stephanie McMahon was asked to come out by The Big Red Monster who offered his services to her and her husband, and ultimately turned heel. A match between two beloved faces are hard to come by in this day and age, however Santino Marella and Kofi Kingston squared off against each other and it was a hard-fought and respectful matchup. Kingston was able to topple Santino, who was still comical but offered more of a serious role. The Wyatt Family are continuing their winning ways and apart from their attacks on both Daniel Bryan and CM Punk last week on Raw, both Rowan and Harper are breezing past opposition like the Prime Time Players, and it is working to boost their demonic and maniacal roles. Ryback was able to defeat Kofi Kingston in a back and forth contest that opened up the Main Event broadcast this week. Ryback was able to defeat Kingston, in a match that last longer that what the behemoth is used to competing in. The rumors of Ryback having a falling out with WWE officials backstage could be more true than not, as he was smashed by CM Punk in roughly five minutes – after being put through a table and forced to tap out to Punk’s Anaconda Vice. This was the match that proved Punk won the feud, as Heyman was absent and has not been seen since the Hell In A Cell pay-per-view. Stemming off a rematch for the United States Championship rematch between Dean Ambrose and Big E Langston, The Usos came to the aid of Langston and forced Brad Maddox to create an immediate six-man tag match. The Shield earned the victory after Roman Reigns double-speared both Jimmy and Jey Uso. This could be a great tag team feud moving forward, as both Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro are achieving well together as a team. Getting a win over the current champions will setup a string of matches between both teams, and even though the Rhodes brothers are extremely over at the moment, there could be a title change looming. An unorthodox combination of Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins highlighted the restraining of Roman Reigns’ when the matched ended, and suggests the thought that the powerhouse could excel in a solo career that builds him up to be an unstoppable monster. The Usos were victorious in this match that saw the winners and Big E Langston looking over at The Shield in the crowd – demonstrating a potential Survivor Series matchup. In a six-man tag match that went 20 minutes, John Cena teamed up with the tag team champions to face The Real Americans and Damien Sandow in match where every competitor was able to offer something exciting. In order to sell a potential World Heavyweight Championship feud, Cena pinned Swagger in order to stay away from pinning Sandow or the Rhodes brothers pinning the Real Americans, after the title challengers were awarded a win on Raw. Raw kicked off with a bang as Damien Sandow attacked John Cena’s injured arm, and cash in his Money In The Bank briefcase. In a great showing by Sandow, he came up short and Cena was able to defend his title the night after winning the prize. It raises the question if Damien Sandow will grow out of the mid-card bookings or if he will continue getting beaten on the regular.
Matches from all over the television map complete this week’s installment of WWE’s Best Matches of The Week, with a familiar face coming back into the fold. John Cena made his return at Hell In A Cell and competed twice on television this week, both times on the winning side.
