The Good, The Bad and The NXT

Hell In A Cell provided the shocks that the pay-per-view has become accustomed to delivering.
It is now in the rearview mirror but it's still having a huge impact on the SmackDown Live roster, while Raw have continued to build towards their TLC event next weekend.
Here are the latest ups and downs from the world of WWE
The Shield (Raw)
The Shield reunited more than three years after their incredible split. The Miz attacked Roman Reigns last week along with Cesaro and Sheamus and sent a message to the trio and this week he had his answer.
The Shield responded by reforming and returning the favour this past week before they later saved Matt Hardy from Braun Strowman when they powerbombed The Monster Among Men through the announce table.
It was later revealed that Strowman has been added to their Tables, Ladder and Chairs match next weekend at TLC, which now makes it a handicap match.
Sami Zayn (SmackDown)
Sami didn't have a match at Hell in a Cell, but he was all the WWE Universe were talking about after the event. Zayn finally managed to make himself relevant in WWE by helping his long-time friend Kevin Owens to defeat Shane McMahon in their Hell in a Cell match.
Sami later explained that this was something he was pushed into doing by McMahon and now he has seemingly joined forces with the former United States Champion as Smackdown Live begins to build towards what could be an incredible Survivor Series event next month.
Peyton Royce (NXT)
Peyton Royce became the second woman to enter the fatal four-way match for the vacant NXT Women's Championship at NXT Takeover: Houston next month. Royce has been overlooked in the NXT Women's Division over the past few years after she was defeated numerous times by former Champion Asuka, but it seems that a multi-person match could actually suit her.
This could be the opportunity Royce has been waiting for and could easily be her best chance of ever lifting the NXT Women's Championship.
Enzo Amore (Raw)
Enzo Amore was forced to endure the entire Cruiserweight Division as he took on Kalisto in the main event with his Cruiserweight Championship on the line. Enzo looked to have had the match won when he hit JawdonZo on the former United States Champion but was dragged out of the ring by Mustafa Ali.
Kalisto was then able to his an Avalanche Salida Del Sol to lift his first ever Cruiserweight Championship. While Enzo still has his rematch clause, it's shocking that WWE has taken the title away from him just over a week after he was able to defeat Neville at No Mercy.
Dolph Ziggler (SmackDown)
Dolph Ziggler's loss to Bobby Roode at Hell in a Cell means that the former World Heavyweight Champion has now gone an entire calendar year without a win on pay-per-view. Ziggler's last win was back at No Mercy in 2016 and it seems that 2017 has just failed to pick up for The Show-Off.
Dolph's match with Roode was his chance to finally push forward, but it seems that this rivalry is far from over if their comments on Tuesday night are anything to go by.
Johnny Gargano (NXT)
Ever since his former tag team partner Tomasso Ciampa turned on him back at NXT Takeover: Chicago, Gargano has been out to prove that one day he will get retribution. As a singles star, he has been climbing through the ranks in NXT over the past few months, but his loss to Andrade Almas at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn still haunted him.
Gargano was given his rematch on NXT this week and this was his chance to finally get revenge on Almas and Selina Vega for the distraction that helped Almas win. This wasn't the case. While it was an incredible match between Gargano and Almas, once again it was the latter that came out on top as he now begins to push towards the NXT Championship, a position Gargano can only dream he was in.
