The exact thing many fans had feared would happen, happened on Raw. John Cena came out to speak after winning the World Heavyweight title Sunday night at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. Damien Sandow interrupted, attacked Cena, then cashed in. It seemed logical. As soon as Cena kicked out of the first pinfall attempt, though, some fans probably started to get worried. You see, Sandow has been losing a lot of matches since he won the Money in the Bank briefcase. Wins and losses don't really matter in WWE many people say, but secretly they do. If you keep losing, eventually people will grow tired of you. Sandow is a terrific character who many fans have gotten behind, excusing the consistent losses because he held that briefcase, which was seemingly a reservation at the main event table.

It was the perfect final tableau for all players involved in the WWE championship triple threat match at Survivor Series.  CM Punk retained the title over Ryback and John Cena. Ryback, the massive monster on the rise, isn't hurt by not winning this match. The fact that he wasn't pinned preserves him as a credible threat. The NXT trio of Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and current champion Seth Rollins, all dressed in black, attacked Ryback and sent him through a table. This is beneficial because it adds an element of mystery (Why did they attack?

JOHN CENA VS. RYBACK: 3 STAGES OF HELL FOR WWE TITLE John Cena will win in two straight falls and we won't see an ambulance match. Just kidding. One "guarantee" in this match is that it will go to the third fall. To me, this is more important for Ryback than it is for John Cena, even though I think Cena will retain and move on after this match . Where will that leave Ryback? Unfortunately, lower in status and interest than he has ever been. Perhaps a feud with Sheamus or another high-level good guy without a title awaits.

After Vince McMahon gave CM Punk the ultimatum of John Cena or Ryback as his Hell in a Cell opponent last week, one of the fine people I follow on Twitter alluded to it being a choice between "the devil Punk knows and the devil he doesn't know. " On tonight's edition of Raw, Punk himself used those very words when addressing the crowd. It was a clever tie-in with the pay-per-view poster that depicts Punk as a devil himself. Punk's desire to toy with the crowd cost him, though, as Vince McMahon told him he was taking too long to decide, and that McMahon would make the choice for him later in the show.

The weeks following WrestleMania have traditionally been a time when WWE calls up talent from developmental, giving them a chance on the main roster. This year has proven to be no different, though not all of this week's debuts were superstars new to the main brands. Lord Tensai , a returning A-Train with a new gimmick, returned on Raw, while former Nexus member Skip Sheffield made his comeback on Smackdown, repackaged as Ryback . Damien Sandow , who has been talked about as a standout in WWE's developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling, also made his debut, albeit in the form of a pre-recorded promo.

Speculation is that CM Punk has been working injured and didn't want to take time off, but he aggravated the injury during Ryback's attack on Raw.  WWE.com was the first to break the news, saying that Dr. Andrews, who has successfully performed surgeries on the likes of Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Edge, John Cena, Randy Orton, Tom...

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]

The Royal Rumble is the match I look forward to most in WWE, not just because it begins the "Road To WrestleMania" and shapes a lot of those cards and rivalries, but because it feeds your ADD cravings as a pro wrestling fan. Every two minutes, about the time you secretly want something new or exciting to happen in a match, a new person joins in and makes the match interesting again. This happens 28 times. By the time No. 30 hits the ring, your "fan ADD" has been fed enough that you can calmly sit through the remaining minutes (usually 6-to-10)

This one wasn't even close. CM Punk delivered another "pipe bomb" in the final segment on Monday Night Raw -- another blend of honesty and little lines that put smiles on hardcore fans' faces. This one had a more heel-ish twist, as expected given CM Punk's character on TV for the past several months. Then, after CM Punk got the crowd in a frenzy for several minutes, out came The Rock ... and again we saw that familiar Rock "Big Mac Formula" -- Catchphrase (bun), plot point (meat)

For the past week, many wrestling fans have been excited about the idea of the Survivor Series pay-per-view being headlined by a traditional 10-man Survivor Series main event. But WWE seemingly couldn't leave well enough alone. After rushing to announce the two teams - led by WWE Champion CM Punk and WWE legend Mick Foley - on last week's episode of Raw, WWE seems to have let its own doubt run rampant and cause major adjustments to the teams and the PPV card as a whole. Raw opened with a pre-taped segment in which former Intercontinental Champion The Miz walked away from Team Punk.

Vince McMahon may have unwittingly provided the answer to America's unemployment campaign. Apparently, you can show up to the job you were removed from months ago, pretend nothing has changed and go about your business. And as long as you suck up to the customers, they'll ignore the facts of the recent past. The corporate management of WWE has become a clustered mess of chaos that only seems to be brought up when it's convenient for the sake of storytelling. Is McMahon still the chairman of the board?
