Tonight’s episode of Monday Night Raw (5/7/12) will be broadcast live from Greensboro, N.C. There are not any TV matches advertised ahead of time by WWE, but the two key storylines of John Cena vs. John Laurinaitis and CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan that have been set up as matches for WWE’s Over the Limit PPV should be the two main focal points, along with fallout from Brock Lesnar breaking Triple H’s arm.
Below are the bullet-points of note for tonight’s Raw:
–Last week, John Laurinaitis joined Lord Tensai in a vicious attack of John Cena. Johnny then said he will be facing Cena at WWE Over the Limit, and even took a personal day to avoid having to answer any questions on last week’s SmackDown, leaving Executive Adminstrator Eve in charge of the blue show. What will happen next in the Ace – Cena saga, and how will WWE management respond?
–Speaking of WWE management, on-air COO Triple H had his arm broken by Brock Lesnar last week on Raw. Will there be any official repercussions announced against “The Next Big Thing” this week?
–Daniel Bryan won a Beat The Clock challenge to score a WWE Championship match with CM Punk at Over the Limit. With the history between them, what can these two possibly have in store for each other ahead of their title match?
Lastly, in addition to the above items, the main event dark match being advertised for the Greensboro crowd is CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho for the WWE Championship.
