With so little time between Hell in a Cell and Survivor Series, Monday's edition of RAW will be extremely important when it comes to building toward the WWE's upcoming pay-per-view. Although the writers didn't do much with the six weeks it was allotted from Night of Champions to Hell in a Cell, I'm optimistic about the prospects of Survivor Series.
A huge main event pitting CM Punk's team against Mick Foley's team has already been announced for the November classic.
That angle is sure to heat up on Monday, as are several other feuds. Sheamus is set to face Big Show in a rematch for the World Heavyweight Championship at Survivor Series, while Vickie Guerrero continues to accuse John Cena of having an inappropriate relationship with former RAW general manager A.J. Lee.
Perhaps most importantly, though, rogue referee Brad Maddox is scheduled to explain his actions at Hell in a Cell. Maddox, seemingly out of nowhere, helped Punk retain his WWE Championship against Ryback at WWE's most recent pay-per-view as he hit him with a low blow and executed a fast count.
With his explanation forthcoming in addition to all the angles that are leading up to Survivor Series, this week's edition of RAW promises to be a can't-miss show.
Here are the top five things you should keep an eye on while watching on Monday.
