Squared Circle: WWE League Week 15

0 of 6

    Monday Night Raw beheld a shocking announcement that after 19 years in the company, world heavyweight champion Edge has been forced to retire due to injury.

    The retirement of a big star is always a detriment to the company, but as in any form of entertainment, the show must go on.

    With that said, R-Truth is competing for the WWE championship—a guy who hasn't been on programming for a few weeks now—well, that pretty much sums up my thoughts for this week. Although on the polar opposite end of my reaction, Christian is in the Smackdown world title match.

    Welcome to Week 15.
