After a lackluster episode of Raw two weeks ago, WWE bounced back in a big way, as chairman Vince McMahon made his on-screen return to deliver a state of the WWE address. It was interrupted by WWE Champion CM Punk, however, and that led to an all-out brawl between them later in the night.
Punk escaped when Ryback and John Cena came to McMahon's aid, but Vince dropped an ultimatum on Punk. The champion has been dodging both Ryback and Cena for the past few weeks, so he will have to decide which one he will face at Hell in a Cell on this week's edition of Raw.
With Cena's health status in question, however, it is anyone's guess as to who Punk will ultimately choose. The writers have done a very nice job since Night of Champions making sure that the WWE Championship is the most important thing in the company, and that figures to be apparent yet again on Monday night.
In addition to Punk, Cena, Ryback and McMahon, there is plenty to follow with regards to the mid-card and tag-team scenes as well, so Raw should be stuffed to the rafters with action. Here are the top five things you should be watching for during Raw this week.
