There may be a huge gap between Night of Champions and Hell in a Cell, but that doesn't mean that nothing is going on in the WWE currently. Monday's edition of RAW promises to be very busy as the writers will probably begin laying the groundwork for the next pay-per-view.
The biggest thing to keep tabs on is the status of John Cena. He is slated to miss six-to-eight weeks due to surgery to remove bone chips from his elbow, but he will still be appearing on RAW. Precisely what his role will be is anyone's guess, though.
Also, CM Punk has been the hottest thing going in the WWE for the past couple months and that is likely to remain true on Monday. With Cena out Punk has no opponent, however, so it will be interesting to see how he is utilized.
Additionally the team of Kane and Daniel Bryan has been a hot topic, as has the status of the World Heavyweight Championship picture. There is a lot to address on RAW this week, so expect the three hours of programming to fly by.
Here are the top five things you should keep an eye on when watching RAW on Monday.
