Title This: WWE Raw Reaction December 30th, 2013

WWE Raw ReactionThis will be a special edition of Title This: WWE Raw Reaction to end the 2013 year and bring in the new year. Instead of breaking down the matches from last night, I wanted to focus more on the big story lines that are happening to head into 2014. This is such a crazy time in professional wrestling and WWE has given us many reasons to be excited for what is to come. Raw gave us a handful of intriguing story lines to look forward to in the near future.

CM Punk and The Shield

This is a feud that many people do not quite understand. It is very simple. CM Punk is going to make anyone he feuds with better and more important. He is a top guy in the company that will be able to get younger guys over. Right now, WWE needs to focus on the Royal Rumble match with these guys. Let the story be that Punk is overcoming odds to be a Royal Rumble favorite. This is one of the big matches that Punk has yet to win and this could be his year, if he can get past three members of The Shield. Be patient with your Wyatt vs. Shield match. I do think it will happen in the next few months and will be a big pay off when they decide to pull the trigger. Punk feuding with all three of these guys separately will show us if all three of them are for real. Reigns is next week, followed by (what I think) Ambrose the following. Then, you can build pieces to the rumble match itself with everyone else.
