It's June. The "Wrestlemania hangover" is now far in the rear-view mirror. Some fans may have moved away from WWE for the time being. SummerSlam is in 2 months. It's in this sweet spot where something spectacular seems to happen on WWE Raw -- something that gets people talking. Last year, Vince McMahon returned to Raw for the first time in over a year. In 2011, CM Punk dropped a "pipe bomb" on television. In 2010, the Nexus formed. In 2009, Donald Trump bought Raw. In 2008, Vince McMahon vowed to give away $1 million.

What seemed like an obvious transition in the main event picture from Night of Champions to Hell in a Cell has been thrown into disarray over the past two weeks. On Monday night, Dean Ambrose once again was the feature attraction as he tormented Seth Rollins throughout the night. He had stolen the Money in the Bank briefcase on Smackdown, and continued to walk around with it. Later in the night, he turned the briefcase over to Rollins (accompanied by Jamie Noble, Joey Mercury and other “security”)

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.

When Roman Reigns went down with injury, we knew someone would have to step up to take his place as the No. 2 face in the company for the time-being. Based on Monday night, that person is going to be Dean Ambrose. At the beginning of the show, Ambrose came out to run down Seth Rollins and say how much he wanted to get his hands on him. Then John Cena came out, as Rollins cost Cena on Sunday, and said he wanted some revenge as well. The Authority then came out, saying that Rollins wouldn't fight tonight, but instead of waiting, both Ambrose and Cena attacked, chasing Rollins to the back, to the point where Rollins had to drive off. Matches were made for Ambrose vs. Kane, and Cena vs. Orton.

The WWE announced Saturday that Roman Reigns underwent emergency surgery for an incarcerated hernia. He will not compete against Seth Rollins on Sunday night. Reigns was in Nashville to promote Sunday's Night of Champions pay-per-view. "Most of the time, the recovery time for something like this in terms of returning to physical activity is between four and six weeks," WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann told WWE.com. "This was a pretty significant hernia, so it will probably be closer to six weeks.

Here are my predictions for WWE Extreme Rules:  BROCK LESNAR VS. TRIPLE H: CAGE MATCH I think Brock Lesnar needs the win here, because I see him continuing on for another big match, while I see Triple H returning in the future only if absolutely necessary. Perhaps Paul Heyman's "newest" client (or clients) interferes in this match, helping Lesnar get the win. Because it's a cage match, neither superstar has to be pinned or submitted, one can simply exit through the cage, which means that the loser doesn't look as weak in a loss.

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.

Almost from the day The Shield debuted in WWE, people have been waiting for Roman Reigns to break out for a single push. On Monday's Raw, that push may have begun. Roman Reigns has always been what the WWE looks for in a potential star. He's billed at 6-foot-3, 265 pounds, ripped and has a real athletic background and the ability to be a true powerhouse. He has future WWE champion written all over him. The most surprising thing about the entire Shield run might be that they kept them together and didn't stop to push Reigns sooner than they did. While he picked up many of the pins in tag matches, he had very few singles accomplishments under his belt.

The night after The Shield had arguably their biggest win as a group, the long-awaited breakup finally happened as Seth Rollins turned on them and joined Evolution. Earlier in the night, Triple H came out and said Evolution's fight against The Shield wasn't over. Batista took exception to this, as he wanted to move on. Rather than continue on with Evolution, Batista announced that he quit, and walked out (this is being done to allow Batista time to promote Guardians of the Galaxy)

Randy Orton became the WWE World Heavyweight champion, unifying both top WWE titles and defeating John Cena in the lone match bearing the Pay Per View's name at TLC on Sunday night. Like most matches on the card, the match was entertaining, with some excellent dramatic moments, particularly near the end of the contest. At one point, Orton handcuffed Cena to the bottom rope and began to climb the ladder to retrieve both titles, only to have Cena unhook the bottom rope in hot pursuit.

A RAW filled with great mid-card action all night long ended with a Match of the Year candidate and the temporary writing-off of a popular superstar. Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins had a rematch of their Summerslam match on RAW, only with a Falls Count Anywhere stipulation attached (which fans voted for). These two put on a great show, going through the crowd and up and down the stage, and used all sorts of weapons, including chairs, tables and kendo sticks. With his CZW background, clearly Ambrose is comfortable with these types of matches, but it can't be understated how well Rollins did, and how well the two gelled.

In 2013, Summerslam might have been the best pay per view of the year, with two Match of the Year candidates. While it might not reach that level, the card this year certainly has the potential to be memorable. Last year, both the Brock Lesnar/CM Punk match (which was my pick for match of the year) and the John Cena/Daniel Bryan match were showered with praise both from fans and critics. They were the top of a great pay-per-view, which also included an overlooked match featuring Alberto Del Rio and Christian.

For the past few months, the WWE's top priority has been to raise subscriptions for the WWE Network. That was kicked into overdrive on Monday, as RAW was turned into an infomercial for the Network. From the very beginning of the show, Triple H was repeating over and over again that for $9.99 you can get the Network, on which could you watch the upcoming SummerSlam. For one segment, it was kind of funny. However, the broadcasters ran with it so much that it seemed like every segment and match featured at least one mention of subscribing to the WWE Network.

Over the past few weeks, I've talked about how important this summer is to the WWE.  On Monday night, it was shown just how important the company feels the upcoming months are, as we got two big returns in Chris Jericho and AJ Lee. All night, the broadcasters had teased the big return of a former WWE champion. When The Miz came out, the fans, both in the arena and on Twitter, were annoyed, feeling that the WWE had pulled a bait-and-switch. However, midway through his promo, Chris Jericho came out after an absence of nearly a year.

This year's Extreme Rules pay-per-view event left us with some unanswered questions but also some new beginnings. In the main event (a rare moment in WWE history where all wrestlers in a final match on PPV weren't on a full-time WWE schedule), Brock Lesnar defeated Triple H in a cage match. Lesnar went up 2-1 on "The Game" and is likely poised for another future match in WWE (not against Triple H), perhaps at Summerslam or Wrestlemania 30. Questions coming out of this match are: will Triple H wrestle again?

WWE often boasts that there is nothing like attending a WWE live event. There is truth to this statement -- particularly, what happens after the cameras stop rolling at a televised event or Pay Per  View. Sometimes, it's just the top name of the company (more often than not these days John Cena or CM Punk) smiling and waving, slapping hands before they make their way backstage to close the show. Sometimes, you get interesting moments that only the superstars, the crowd in attendance, and (in segmented parts)

Sunday night's Money In The Bank ended with a familiar sight: John Cena celebrating as he became the WWE world heavyweight champion. Cena outlasted seven other men to achieve his goal this time. The match was actually fairly brutal, even for a ladder match. Randy Orton took a shot to the top of his head early in the match which ripped open a cut. By the end of the match, the blood was freely running down his face. While it wasn't a true Crimson Mask, it was as close to one as we've seen in quite a while in the WWE. There was also a fantastic spot where a ladder was forced through the rungs of another ladder, which led the ladder to be tilted without falling and caused Sheamus and Cesaro to have to climb around to stay up. It was a very cool visual spot that, to my knowledge, had never been done before.
