Four wins in one week is an incredible feat any way you cut it, especially when those wins consist of a Unified Tag Title win, a title defense, and two wins over World Heavyweight Champion CM Punk.

The Legend Killer did the seemingly impossible by surviving the Three Stages of Hell at The Bash. Unfortunately for him, he couldn't survive the Gauntlet Match on Raw and was pinned by Mark Henry.
JEFF HARDY (1) (Watch | Photos)
We understand why The Extreme Enigma may feel he was robbed at The Bash, but now, with a Night of Champions rematch looming, Hardy needs to start looking ahead to capitalize on this golden opportunity.

It will be Cena vs. Triple H for a chance to face Randy Orton for the WWE Title at Night of Champions, and with wins over The Miz at The Bash and on Raw, it certainly seems the momentum is with the former champ.

At The Bash, The Straightedge Superstar retained his title after being disqualified vs. Jeff Hardy. We wonder, though, if the eye injury he sustained will be too much to overcome heading into Night of Champions.
Facing Big Show is certainly an unenviable task, but the United States Champion took the bull by the horns on Raw and, unfortunately, came up just shy of victory as both men were counted out.
With his mask on the line and the Intercontinental Title up for grabs, The Master of the 619 outsmarted Chris Jericho at The Bash and was able to pick up a stunning victory to become champion again.
Even though The Friday Night Delight was victorious over Charlie Haas on "WWE Superstars," so much occured in WWE this week that Morrison still drops one spot.
When one door closes, another opens. And after losing the Intercontinental Title at The Bash, Jericho opened the door and seized the Unified Tag Team Championships with his partner, Edge.
CODY RHODES & TED DiBIASE
Unfortunately for the two younger members of The Legacy, both came up short in singles action on Raw and in tag team action at The Bash. As a result, the duo drops two spots down the list.
Dreamer is still the ECW Champion, defying the odds that were against him Sunday night. And now, after the 15 Superstar trade, The Land of Extreme is a totally different landscape for him to navigate.
It's all about The Game, and how he plays it this Monday night. He will need to get past a very tough obstacle in John Cena if he wants another chance to gain revenge and take Orton's gold in one fell swoop.
Being 0-2 on the week certainly shows that things haven't been going Captain Charisma's way as of late. He will have to turn things around immediately if he wants to stop sliding down the POWER 25.
After being traded to Raw, "The All-American American" tried to start things off right with a sign of respect - intentionally getting counted out in the Gauntlet Match against WWE Champion Randy Orton.
|15|| CARLITO & PRIMO |
Losing the Unified Tag Team Titles Sunday as well as their rematch Monday against Edge & Chris Jericho obviously frustrated Carlito a great deal, and he took out those frustrations on his brother on Raw.
Last year, McCool made history by becoming the first-ever Divas Champion. One year later at The Bash, she did it again by becoming the first Diva to have ever held both the Women's and Divas Titles.
The last few months haven't been the best for The World's Largest Athlete, and in a match against United States Champion Kofi Kingston on Ra, the match ended in a draw with both men being counted out.
MONTEL VONTAVIOUS PORTER
Unfortunately for The Franchise Playa', his opportunity to face Randy Orton for the WWE Championship at Night of Champions slipped through his fingers after a Pedigree and loss to Triple H on Raw.
If you don't know the name yet, you might want to put it to memory. Dolph Ziggler won two impressive matches this week, including a No Disqualification Match against The Great Khali at The Bash.
HART DYNASTY: SMITH, NATALYA, KIDD
The first night of SmackDown was not a pleasant one for David Hart Smith, Tyson Kidd and Natalya. Smith & Kidd teamed up in a losing effort against Cryme Tyme Friday night.
Out of action this week, the Divas Champion drops one spot, but we doubt that is what's on her mind. More likely, she's concentrating on her title defense against Mickie James in a few weeks.
A move to Monday nights might be just what the doctor ordered for The World's Strongest Man. He certainly made an impression on all the Raw Superstars after pinning WWE Champion Randy Orton.
After a win on Raw earned her the No. 1 contender spot for the Divas Championship, Mickie James will finally have her opportunity to face Maryse with the title on the line at Night of Champions.
His name is Finlay, and he may like to fight, but that wasn't enough to win him the ECW Title at The Bash. However, The Irishman stays put after an impressive win against Ricky Ortiz in his SmackDown debut.
Despite her victory in the Fatal Four Way Diva Match on SmackDown, Melina's loss to Michelle McCool at The Bash on Sunday cost her the Women's Championship - and six spots on the POWER 25.
