It has been a very different WWE since WrestleMania 32 as Shane McMahon's 'New Era' has elevated the quality of programming.
Since WrestleMania, we have seen fan favourite AJ Styles enter the WWE World Heavyweight Championship picture and other NXT talents take the main stage.
New faces, New Era
With the Sami Zayn and the Vaudevillains both set for title matches at Extreme Rules, McMahon is clearly listening to what the fans want.

However it could have all been so different for the prodigal son who returned before WrestleMania to have one more epic match.
Shane took on the Undertaker at WrestleMania 32 in a Hell in a Cell match that arguably stole the show in Dallas.
Shane was fighting for the right to control Monday Night RAW and even though he lost, he got his wish anyway and took control of RAW all the way up to Payback.
Control of the WWE's flagship show was given to both Shane and Stephanie McMahon at Payback, but that was a long way away from the original plans for his return.
While everything went as scheduled up to WrestleMania, Shane was then meant to once again disappear.
Rumoured to have only come back to WWE for a month, Shane then stuck around after the fans gravitated to him so much.
Given that ticket sales increased after his return and overall positive fan reception to his character, the decision was made for him to once again become a regular face on WWE programming.
Shane's return has seemingly been good for everyone on the roster as even his sister Stephanie McMahon has been making some very crowd pleasing decisions.
The rumours surrounding the future of Shane however could also lead into one of the biggest feuds of the summer.
Heavy rumours suggest that Shane could be feuding with Triple H for control of the company in a storyline that could be set to explode at Summer Slam.
