There has been a lot of criticism surrounding Monday Night Raw over the past few weeks, so when it was announced that Edge and Christian would be hosting the last episode for 2014, WWE fans knew this would be a better episode of late.
The show was just that. With an informative and moving promo from Ryback, as well as a touching and emotional speech from Daniel Bryan, this edition of Raw was well put together as a fitting end to 2014 for WWE.
The final segment of the show, however, put Edge and Christian in a less positive light than just being guest hosts of Raw.
Seth Rollins attacked Christian with his Money in the Bank briefcase before Big Show turned on Edge, with the pair threatening the retired WWE Superstar with breaking his neck.

With Big Show pinning Edge's head against Rollins' briefcase and with the former Shield member poised in position for a Curb Stomp, it was up to John Cena to save Edge from yet another injury.
Having been blackmailed by Rollins, Cena was left with no choice but to bring back The Authority, meaning Edge was able to avoid a beating, but he and his former tag team partner Christian appear to have taken matters into their own hands by filing a lawsuit against WWE.
"The Authority resumes power this Monday on Raw, E&C will be in charge of SmackDown this Friday. According to Michael Cole, the duo filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against WWE for the actions of Seth Rollins and Big Show last night on Raw," according to reports.
Though it's not entirely clear why WWE have decided to go with this angle, it's rumored that it's addressed during this week's episode of SmackDown on Friday night, with no real indication of it being solved.
This could suggest that Edge and Christian may be making more appearances on WWE television than first thought, which if their appearance on Monday Night Raw this week is anything to go by, will unquestionably be a good thing for the company.
