At the end of an entertaining Extreme Rules pay-per-view, Daniel Bryan retained his title in a main event that brought many wrestling fans back to the Attitude era. The match, an extreme rules match, featured savage beatdowns with chairs, kendo sticks and other weapons, a brawl that went through the backstage area to the parking garage, cars being destroyed, a forklift being employed, and finally, a flaming table that Kane went through. It was the kind of violence in a match that, for the most part, had been toned down over the past decade.

RAW continued the recent trends of rather bland shows on Monday night. However, those who were in attendance in Baltimore heard a special announcement and were witnesses to some potentially interesting debuts. The main announcement that drew buzz at Baltimore Arena is that for the first time in more than three years, the city will host a pay-per-view. On May 17, Payback will be held at the Baltimore Arena. It will be the first pay-per-view held in Baltimore since December 2011, when TLC emanated from Baltimore.

Over the past few years, the RAW after Wrestlemania has been considered to be one of the best RAWs of the year, particularly because of the crowds it draws. This year was no different. From start to finish, the crowd was loud, boisterous and made their presence felt in nearly every match. While the fans had fun, you can tell the wrestlers loved it to. Daniel Bryan not only had fun with the crowd as he opened the show, you could simply tell by the look on his face how much he loved it. Even as a heel, Bray Wyatt played to the crowd.

A week after a RAW filled with returns and new storylines, RAW from Montreal this week featured storyline development and in-ring action. The main angle for RAW revolved around the main event at Battleground, as John Cena, Roman Reigns, Randy Orton and Kane danced around each other all night. RAW started with Reigns coming down to the ring to cut a promo saying that he can be the one to stop Cena. He's definitely been getting more comfortable on the mic as time passes, as he was able to control the crowd, and play to them, in the promo.

A crowd can sometimes be overlooked as one of the necessary ingredients of professional wrestling. A crowd reaction can make a good match great, a mediocre match good, and can make a moment truly memorable. On Monday night's edition of WWE Raw, we got one of those moments. We knew it was only a matter of time before Daniel Bryan broke away from The Wyatt Family. After Bryan and Bray Wyatt lost by disqualification to The Usos in the first match, Kane decided that they should have a rematch, in a cage with the door locked (side note: it's interesting that it was Kane who decided this, after his feud with The Wyatt Family)

Remember when WWE Extreme Rules used to feature “extreme” matches? Before 2012, Extreme Rules (or One Night Stand, as it was previously called) was a pay-per-view event that featured big stipulations in every match. In 2012 and 2013, although not every match had these stipulations, a majority of the matches still were considered “extreme.” This year, even if you include the WeeLC match, there are only three matches that have an extreme stipulation to them. Now, that doesn't mean that this won't be a good pay-per-view.

In 2013, WWE really revolved around the rise of Daniel Bryan. From his feud with The Shield at the beginning of the year to his break from Kane and rise to the title picture to winning the title (briefly) and his feud with Randy Orton, he captivated the WWE audience all year long. He even was voted as Superstar of the Year by the WWE fans. So it was only natural that the final shot of the final WWE Raw in 2013 had Daniel Bryan in it. I'm not sure if anyone expected exactly what that shot was though.

In a backstage segment on WWE Raw on Monday night, John Cena said something fairly interesting, something that might simultaneously excite and infuriate fans. Cena acknowledged that the fans were calling for change, and that the company would be changing with the WWE Network. He talked about the fans chanting for Daniel Bryan and some of the other young wrestlers. He then said that the future of the WWE would be determined by Cena's match with Randy Orton in the main event. Cena said that his feud with Orton would finish that night, and whoever wanted to step up would have to go through him. Now, it was good that he acknowledged the fans chanting and wanting change.

To many wrestling fans, the Royal Rumble is their favorite pay-per-view of the year.  This year, we have 4 matches already made, plus the Rumble match itself.  Here's a rundown of the show, with my predictions on the winner. The Rhodes Brothers vs. The New Age Outlaws for the WWE Tag Team Titles This match will be on the online preshow. I'm not the biggest fan of this match.  You have the Outlaws wrestle for the first time  in their return 2 weeks ago, and they suddenly get a title shot?

As mentioned in yesterday's column , Daniel Bryan's rehab wasn't going as well as hoped.  On Monday's RAW, that was made official when the Authority vacated the title and announced it would be put on the line in a seven-man ladder match. They announced the first two participants of the match quickly, saying Alberto Del Rio earned his shot last week, and also put Randy Orton into the match.  Later in the night, Sheamus and Cesaro also earned their shots in qualifying matches.  You can read about my early thoughts on who should win the match in yesterday's column, but there are two questions that remain after RAW. The first is who will the three remaining competitors be?

Late last week, reports started coming out that Daniel Bryan's rehab wasn't going as well as hoped. This afternoon, reports came out that doctors had officially told him that he won't be cleared to wrestle at Money in the Bank. Assuming these reports are true, that means we will see the Money in the Bank match turned into a match for the WWE World Heavyweight title, as Stephanie McMahon announced on RAW last week. We may also see a second match for the MITB briefcase. We should know more about that later tonight on RAW. Now that we know he won't be defending the title though, the question becomes who will become champion, and what happens to some of the long-term plans for the title and Daniel Bryan.

After Sunday night's pay-per-view, I had speculated that maybe Evolution was going to disband, just as quickly as the group reunited. On Monday's Raw, they showed me how wrong I was. To kick off the show -- and to get Dean Ambrose back for the loss Sunday night -- Triple H put him in a 20-man battle royal for his U.S. title, which he lost. If that wasn't enough, Triple H put the group in a match against the Wyatts in the main event. The two stables had another solid match, though not quite up to par as some of their past encounters.

WWE Raw ended Monday night with Randy Orton holding up both the WWE and World Heavyweight titles, with a match set for the TLC pay-per-view where both titles will be on the line. It must be noted that this hasn't been billed as a "unification" match yet, implying right now that the winner will hold both titles and not make them one single championship. The timing is interesting. It will certainly boost interest for TLC, a pay-per-view that isn't a traditional big hit for WWE. To generalize that point, what might raise eyebrows is the fact that we aren't seeing a match of this magnitude on a bigger pay-per-view stage, leading me to believe that we won't get a definitive winner at TLC and that the saga of crowning a unified champion (if that is the path that will be taken)

In the constantly moving world of wrestling, there's never much time to sit and reflect on pay-per-views. So it's not too surprising that instead of dwelling on the Royal Rumble on WWE Raw, the attention turned to setting the stage for the next pay-per-view, Elimination Chamber. On Raw, The Authority announced that Randy Orton would have to defend his title in the Elimination Chamber. Not surprisingly, Daniel Bryan was the first to respond to the announcement. WWE continued to blur the line between reality and storyline as Bryan ranted about how he wanted to be in the Royal Rumble, but The Authority wouldn't let him, and that The Authority should tell the fans what they want.

Before RAW on Monday, we had seen just about everything in the Triple H/Daniel Bryan feud. We had seen Triple H throw everything he had politically at Bryan, and Bryan overcome it. We've seen Triple H get physical with Bryan, and we've seen Bryan get some small strikes in here and there. We saw the brutal attack Triple H put on Bryan a couple weeks ago. And finally, on Monday, we got the final piece of the puzzle: Bryan finally getting his hands on Triple H for a beatdown of his own. Earlier in the night, Triple H and Stephanie had promised that Bryan wouldn't be there, and ran down previous “flavors of the months” that he had beaten.
