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)

It's that time of the month again -- when we talk about the last WWE Raw before a pay-per-view and gauge whether the show made us want to spend money on the upcoming event at the end of the week. Right now, I'm lukewarm at best on the whole card (and Raw, for that matter). There were some bright spots for me -- seeing Xavier Woods finally make his WWE main show debut as R Truth's tag team partner was a #ThisMakesMeHappy moment for me. The circumstances of the debut were even more interesting because, in 2007, Woods debuted in TNA also as R Truth's partner.

It was a scene we have (sort of) seen before: John Cena and Randy Orton, face to face, two champions in the ring. We have seen John Cena and Randy Orton square off. We have seen John Cena, as champion, stare down another champion (CM Punk). Where this will lead is the big question. Among many in the WWE fan base there has been discussion of title unification -- the World Heavyweight title today feels more like the Intercontinental title of 20 years ago, as opposed to a major championship equal to the WWE title.

The Big Show has won the WWE title twice. Both times, he won at a Survivor Series pay-per-view event. The first time, in 1999, he defeated Triple H. Funny how things come back around, in a way. This year, The Big Show will get a WWE title shot against Randy Orton at Survivor Series, given to him by Triple H, much to the latter's chagrin. The entire scenario was a little odd -- The Big Show suing WWE over discrimination, defamation and abusive treatment at work (which, realistically, happens to every WWE superstar on a weekly basis)

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.

CM Punk's path has taken an unexpected turn. Many wondered where the champion would go after retaining his WWE Championship against Ryback at Sunday night's Hell in a Cell. The million-dollar question was answered in the opening segment of Raw, but it was an answer as unexpected as the conclusion of Sunday night's pay-per-view. Punk denied having any knowledge of referee Brad Maddox's plans for the evening, suggesting he did it to make it up to Punk for screwing him in a tag team match against John Cena several months ago. (Yay continuity!

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?

Yesterday on this blog I wrote about John Cena giving praise to Antonio Cesaro in the ring in Munich, Germany . I talked about the differences between John Cena the human being (who is among the most charitable faces of a company anywhere) and John Cena the character (whom many people dislike because he is often portrayed as super human, often beating superstars when the odds are gravely against him). On this week's RAW we got another example of the latter. John Cena faced the Real Americans in a handicap tag team match.
