image via WWE The Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan has played host to many great moments in sports and entertainment history. Last night the WWE was in town to follow up the first installment of a pay-per-view that has gotten raves reviews and has nothing to do with the 1999 Mel Gibson thriller of the same name.  Not only was Payback a smashing success and an early event of the year candidate, the Monday Night Raw that followed was right on par with the instant classic episode that aired the night after WrestleMania 29 (the one that had fans Fandangoing all the way home). This one had multiple moments that will surely air on your 2013 best of RAW and Smackdown DVD and/or Blu-Ray collection.  For instance, Mark Henry had arguably the most brilliant moment of his career. Zeb Colter announced that he would be taking Antonio Cesaro under his wing. CM Punk told Paul Heyman he wouldn't be needing his services anymore. Vince McMahon praised The Shield and gave them free rein. Kaitlyn had a wardrobe malfunction that sent WWE twitter fanboys into a frenzy. But it was the episodes denouement that induced the biggest goosepimple moment of the evening, one that will have the biggest impact on the company in the coming year. Check it out below.
