With TLC being just a few weeks away, the WWE's focus has suddenly shifted toward the next big event, and this week's edition of RAW promises to feature plenty of preparation for the upcoming pay-per-view. One match has already been announced, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see at least a couple more put into place on Monday.
Perhaps more importantly, however, Michael Cole will try to get to the bottom of the situation involving NXT stars Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns. They have twice assisted WWE Champion CM Punk by attacking Ryback and they are scheduled to reveal their motives in an exclusive interview on RAW.
In addition to that, there are several other big storylines that figure to be advanced. Punk and Ryback continue their feud, the John Cena and A.J. Lee affair will likely be addressed with Dolph Ziggler playing a big role as well and there are plenty of midcard angles that deserve some attention.
The WWE still has plenty of time to build toward TLC, but there is no doubt that it will want to build anticipation as early as possible. Here are the top five things that you should keep an eye on while watching RAW this week.
