RAW came to us from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas this week. It also came to us from the Hardy Compound, but more on that later. It was certainly an eventful show, but it did feel like a really long show. Especially if you consider how good last week's episode was.

As always we're here to separate the good from the bad. We'll end it with something we have a split opinion on. It's time for yet another edition of 'Best and Worst'.

You're invited to leave a comment and let us know if you thought the show was good, bad or ugly down in the comments section.

#1 Best: Brock Lesnar turns heel

This was perhaps the most cowardly thing Lesnar has done, since he became Champion

If you watched the Randy Orton vs. Bobby Roode match at Fastlane, you know what we're talking about. They put on a solid match, but the crowd did not know whom to root for. This week, we saw Brock Lesnar hit a man in handcuffs. This was to turn him heel, heading into the big match.

WWE has been planning his turn for a while now. Reigns has been coming out and cutting promos about how he's a part-time champion, echoing the sentiments of the entire WWE Universe. It has even got him a few cheers, especially from the casual fans.

While there's no guarantee that even this action will get Reigns over as a babyface, we saw a more heinous side to Lesnar. A man who can legitimately defeat the toughest men in the world, within the octagon, had to wait for Reigns to be handcuffed, to come out and attack him.

Roman Reigns is the future, while Lesnar's future is uncertain, and we felt this move was really necessary indeed.
