When will CM Punk be back in WWE?

As the road to WrestleMania gets under way, we look back at what was one of the most controversial weeks in recent WWE history. From Batista emerging victorious in the annual 30-man Royal Rumble match to CM Punk departing the company, fans were left with more questions than answers going into next Monday's Raw.

Many members of the WWE Universe were left disappointed by the conclusion of the Royal Rumble pay-per-view that saw Batista earn the right to challenge for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the main event of WrestleMania 30. Will The Animal continue to target Randy Orton, or will his sights shift between now and The Show of Shows?

A handful of Elimination Chamber qualifying matches were held over the last week to determine who will contend for the prestigious prize inside Satan's structure later this month. How will Orton react to his newest set of challengers come Monday night?

Following a loss to Ryback and Curtis Axel on SmackDown, The Prime Time Players parted ways when Titus O'Neil aggressively attacked Darren Young. What will this mean for the tag team division going forward?

I will break down the week in wrestling by analyzing the Royal Rumble, Monday Night Raw, Friday Night SmackDown and WWE Main Event broadcasts, including each show's highlights, low points and other noteworthy, monumental moments. Also, I will give an award to the show and Superstar that shined the brightest over the course of the week.
