Honourable mention goes to Lita’ÂÂs forgettable partnership with Essa Rios There are some pairings on screen that shout instant chemistry like when the defiant Stone Cold Steve Austin was the perfect opponent for Vince McMahonâÂÂs oppressive boss character.

CM Punk – Once a rebel, always a rebel - WWE is never pleased when one of their top stars, who they built to be the face of the company, leaves on short notice and starts talking smack about the largest promotion in the world.

One brief reunion This week, WWE went all guns blazing with Stone Cold Steve Austin, Brock Lesnar, The Undertaker, Ric Flair and HBK, all making appearances.
