With Survivor Series now less than a week away, Monday's go-home edition of RAW promises to be an important one. There are only three matches currently announced for Sunday's card, so the creative team figures to pack a lot of action into three hours in an effort to generate buzz for the pay-per-view.
The biggest storyline heading into Monday night is the status of rogue referee Brad Maddox. He helped CM Punk defeat Ryback at Hell in a Cell and explained himself last week by stating that his goal was to get noticed and receive a WWE contract as a superstar. He'll have his chance on RAW as he is slated to face Ryback for a $1 million contract.
Also, there is a big hole in the current Survivor Series card as Mick Foley's team is one wrestler short. The formation of the WWE Championship match between Punk, Ryback and John Cena removed both Punk and Ryback from the traditional five-on-five match and Foley has yet to name a replacement. He figures to do so on Monday.
Vickie Guerrero supposedly has more incriminating evidence relating to the alleged affair between John Cena and former RAW general manager A.J. Lee that she promised to make public. Perhaps more importantly than all of that, though, Jerry "The King" Lawler is set to make his return to commentary after suffering near-fatal heart attack a couple months ago.
Keep your eye on all of that and more when we tune in to Monday's edition of RAW.
