It has been a long time since there was this much intrigue and positivity surrounding the WWE, but the company has certainly earned it.
After putting on a scintillating pay-per-view at Payback, the WWE came back the next day with what could very well go down as the most memorable Raw of the year and followed it up with a terrific SmackDown and another great Raw.
With Money in the Bank quickly approaching, will that momentum continue on Friday's SmackDown?
That's still uncertain, but here's a look at the results from Tuesday's taping from the Colonial Life Arena in Columbia, S.C., if you can't wait.

Water-Cooler Moment: Christian and The Usos defeat The Shield
The Shield losing (by pin, to boot) will undoubtedly turn some (angry) heads, but with The Usos earning a shot at Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns' tag team titles on Monday night, something needs to heat up the feud and make it credible.
This does exactly that while also adding a little bit of necessary shock factor to the show. Upsets happen in the sports world, so why can't they happen here, too?
Moreover, while this essentially sets up The Usos vs. Rollins/Reigns at Money in the Bank, it offers up an intriguing question about Dean Ambrose's direction.
While Christian scoring the pin on Ambrose in this match would seemingly suggest that he is in line for a feud with the talented United States champion, he was already announced to be in the ladder match at Money in the Bank.
Will Ambrose eventually join that match? Will he simply interfere and cost Christian the match, setting up something for SummerSlam? Or is he headed for something else?
You can color me extremely intrigued for Friday's show.
