Monday night's Raw began with a well-executed angle and ended with a great match. What was in between was pretty good, too. When Chris Jericho came out to confront Stephanie McMahon at the top of the show, I never imagined it would result in Stephanie's firing Jericho. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/ringposts)

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”)

'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have devoured raw cookie dough. At least that's how Vanessa Simmons sees it. "My friends and I used to buy a role of slice-and-bake and just eat spoonfuls of it during a breakup or crisis," said Simmons, a 23-year-old Johns Hopkins graduate who lives in Mount Vernon. Raw cookie dough may heal a broken heart, but it's not so hot for the rest of you. Last month, E. coli turned up in refrigerated Toll House cookie dough at Nestle's Danville, Va., plant.

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 return of Mr. McMahon to Raw on Monday spiked the ratings. The show did a 3.9 (including a 4.1 for the second hour), which was up from last week's 3.5 and is the best number Raw has done since the Ric Flair farewell episode did a 3.9 on March 31. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/ringposts)

RAW: The Living Food Diet (Freepoint Entertainment, $29.95, DVD with booklet) This DVD is worth a look if you need inspiration to move beyond a nightly ritual of heating up processed food for dinner. RAW: The Living Food Diet is produced by a California company that espouses the benefits of eating raw food. Viewers may be enticed by the idea of cooking without cooking. But as it turns out, the 50-minute segment on preparing everything from seed cheeses to raw burritos is hardly simple.

If you're a big-hunk-of-steak kind of person like me, few things could seem more torturous than dinner at a raw-food restaurant. But as it turned out, it wasn't that bad. Dan Hoyt and Tolentin Chan, owners of the two Quintessence restaurants in New York, have created dishes that are varied, tasty and intriguing. Sure, being a raw restaurant, it offers no wine or beer, but the coconut drinks almost make up for it. On a recent Friday night, a friend and I trekked to the East Village restaurant to sample some raw offerings.

Q: Should I pay attention to my wife when she says that we should not order Caesar salads in restaurants?A: The easy answer is to tell you that you should always listen to what your wife says. She may not be right on every occasion, but it is true that Caesar salad dressing, made with raw eggs, has been responsible for many outbreaks of gastrointestinal illness due to contamination of eggs with Salmonella bacteria. These bacteria pose no threat when eggs are properly cooked, but Salmonella may infect the intestine if you eat foods containing raw or under-cooked eggs.

It's hard not to dream of better times on a raw and uncompromising January afternoon when the air reeks of auto exhaust and the harbor looks like an acid bath. Baltimore is not at her best during the first month of the year.This is the high season of winter dreams, when the mind drifts to the land of endless possibility, to what might be, to what was, to what could be. . . .Hoping (in secret) that Baltimore will be lambasted with a real snow storm (more than 12 inches downtown) in the next three weeks, so that conditions will be so bad you'll be excused and paid for work for three days.

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.

On a night when we saw a six-man tag match involving John Cena, Roman Reigns and Chris Jericho be the main event, all the buzz came from the announcement that the WWE is inviting Michael Sam to Raw in Baltimore next week. Midway through this Monday's Raw , the WWE ran a graphic (complete with Monday Night Football graphic and music) officially announcing that they were inviting the recently released Sam to Raw. JBL commented that he couldn't believe Sam wasn't signed to a team, and how unfair that was. Cole said that if Sam does accept, he'd be granted ringtime and an open mic to say whatever he wanted.

John Cena returned after a one-week absence to hype his rematch with Brock Lesnar, and it was like he never left. After losing in brutal fashion to Lesnar at Summerslam, many wondered how that would affect Cena's character. It was one of the more brutal losses in wrestling and, especially if he was going for a rematch, it seemed something would have to change for Cena to be able to compete with Lesnar once again. However, based on Monday night, it seems nothing will change in Cena's quest to recapture the WWE World Heavyweight Title.

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.

On Monday night, WWE Raw ended with a perfect mix of nostalgia and build for the SummerSlam pay-per-view as the company celebrated Hulk Hogan's birthday. After advertising Hogan's birthday all night, complete with messages from the likes of Larry King and "Weird" Al Yankovic, they finally had a party for him in the final segment of the night. It started with "Mean" Gene Okerlund and Jimmy Hart out in the ring to introduce Hogan. Hogan came out, shilled the WWE Network for a bit, and then thanked the fans.

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.

There were noteworthy developments recently regarding TNA Impact and Raw. It became official last week that Impact is expanding to two hours beginning Oct. 4. It was the realization of a longtime goal for the company, but I'm not all that excited about it. I know that TNA gets criticized for trying to jam too much into one hour, and therefore nothing has impact (no pun intended). But I like that the show moves quickly, and I think it helps keep characters fresh by not having everyone on the show every week.

Fans were left holding their breath at the end of RAW Monday night -- not due to the sight in the ring, Roman Reigns standing tall -- but the scene outside the ring, with medical personnel looking at Seth Rollins. Toward the end of the match, Rollins tried a springboard attack against Reigns, who sidestepped the move. As he landed in the ring Rollins immediately bent over, grabbing towards his right knee. Reigns then clotheslined him over the top rope, and when Rollins hit the ground he again grabbed at his knee.

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.
