A few weeks ago, I wrote about how a honeymoon and his father's death had created a speed bump for Daniel Bryan's title reign. On Monday, he announced an even bigger problem: he has to undergo surgery. Bryan came out to the ring looking extremely serious on Monday. He went through a speech talking about everything he's overcome to get to this point, similar to some of the other speeches he's made lately. Then he dropped the bombshell that he will have surgery on his neck on Tuesday.

On Monday, there was a notable omission from RAW. Despite being in a fairly prominent storyline with Kane and the Authority, CM Punk was not on the show at all. Wednesday morning, we might have found out why. If reports are to be believed -- and these reports are still coming out -- CM Punk told Vince McMahon on Monday afternoon that he was going home, and that he wasn't coming back. RAW, which had been going through some changes, had to quickly be rewritten, and was still being put together an hour before the show was set to start.

CM Punk has held the WWE championship for 339 days. On Sunday at WWE's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, where CM Punk meets Ryback for the WWE championship in the Cell, Punk will have held the gold for 343 days. While it's easy to look into the future, including a tantalizing possible matchup with The Rock and what many would hope to be a headlining bout at WrestleMania 29, CM Punk is doing anything but that, focusing primarily on his opponent Sunday. “I'm glad [I'm facing Ryback]

Former NFL and University of Maryland linebacker Shawne Merriman signed a contract with WWE late last week, ending months of speculation and adding another Terps player to the wrestling world. In November, Merriman had a workout at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Fla., but it seemed like nothing developed and a contract wasn't offered at the time. But then Merriman took part in WrestleMania weekend, including appearing on camera in WWE's preshow panel for WrestleMania, as well as WWE Raw on Monday.

In the days leading up to RAW, the buzz was about the upcoming crowd in Chicago, and the possible return of CM Punk. By the end of the night, the talk was mostly about Daniel Bryan and Triple H. The two advanced their storyline Monday night, starting with a verbal rundown by Triple H and culminating in Triple H hitting a Pedigree on a motionless Daniel Bryan. Earlier in the night, Bryan came out to call out Triple H once again. He appealed to the crowd, even saying that they would “hijack RAW” together (which is what a movement in Chicago had said they would try to do)

Wrestling fans have seen the heel authority figure storyline over and over. It generally plays out in a similar way. The authority figure supports a heel wrestler, targets a face wrestler or both. Then, the heel wins the title, and the authority figure does a lot to try to help him keep the title. And for a while, The Authority storyline has played out exactly that way. On Monday's WWE Raw, however, it took a bit of a turn. At the beginning of the show -- as Randy Orton was ranting about how he was being mistreated, and that as the face the company, he should be treated better -- The Authority came out. It had been teased over the past few weeks that there might be dissension between Orton, Triple H, and Stephanie McMahon, but Monday night was the first time that it was acknowledged directly.

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)

Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan put on a terrific match to end WWE Raw on Monday night, and it ended in a disqualification. John Cena, who earlier insisted that Bryan get the nod as challenger to Orton's title, came to make the save, but the show ended with Orton standing tall, holding both championships. This creates an interesting bottleneck for the WWE championship -- Cena seemingly will get another match at some point, and Bryan is back in the hunt. With the Royal Rumble looming, and only one main championship for winner to seek, you have to wonder how the scenario will play out. Another thing to consider -- if Bryan or Cena doesn't win the Royal Rumble and battle for the WWE title, a perfect candidate to face a villain unified champion is Chris Jericho, who himself unified the titles in 2001.

The Slammy Awards will always have a special place in WWE history. Not only do they have a nostalgic feel (with the first Slammys awarded in 1986), but they also plant seeds for future rivalries. On this edition, we saw a slight dissension among members of The Shield, while Daniel Bryan and Shawn Michaels shared an extended stare down that had fans buzzing about a possible future matchup between the two. Much of the 2013 Slammy Awards made me more excited about potential matchups that may be coming in 2014 than matches that will happen Sunday at WWE's TLC pay-per-view.
