Raw SuperShow results: John Laurinaitis faces termination at WWE Over the Limit!
May 14, 2012
PITTSBURGH – Sparks flew at the beginning of Raw SuperShow between Paul Heyman and WWE COO Triple H, after Heyman hand-delivered Brock Lesnar’s lawsuit and threatened The Game with a lawsuit of his own. By the end of the night, things exploded when John Cena read a letter from the WWE Board of Directors revealing Raw and SmackDown GM John Laurinaitis will be terminated if he loses to Cena at WWE Over the Limit!
Paul Heyman delivered Brock Lesnar’s lawsuit to Triple H
Raw SuperShow began with WWE COO Triple H addressing Brock Lesnar. "Your arrogance and stupidity offend me,” The Game said then admitted he was embarrassed that he bought into the hype surrounding Lesnar. Giving props to John Cena, The Game then recalled how Cena did not give up and fought to victory against Lesnar at Extreme Rules.
Next, a tense standoff ensued when Paul Heyman, accompanied by a lawyer, hand-delivered Triple H a lawsuit from Lesnar. According to Heyman, Lensar is owed millions after his contract was breached. “Consider yourself served,” Heyman said after calling Triple H a “corporate sycophant.”
As Heyman and Triple H squared off, Heyman criticized The Game’s business acumen. When emotions reached a boiling point, the COO grabbed hold of Heyman by the face. “You tell Brock Lesnar, he’s going to get everything he deserves,” Triple H said. But before things got even more physical, The Game relented and released his grip. As Triple H left ringside, Heyman threatened another lawsuit – assault and battery – and vowed to see the COO in court. ( "PAYDAY OR PAYCHECK FOR PAUL HEYMAN?")

But before the GM could read the letter, Cena ripped it from his hands to reveal some shocking stipulations directly from the WWE Board of Directors:
“Your match with Mr. Cena will be one-on-one. There will be no special guest referee. No one is allowed at ringside. The only way to win is by pinfall or submission. Any Superstar who interferes in the match will be immediately terminated … Should you, Mr. Laurinaitis, lose this match to John Cena, then you will be officially terminated.”
With the stunning news, the WWE Universe exploded in approval. Then, when Cena questioned what major announcement the GM was reported to be making that would change the future of WWE, the GM slapped Cena and walked out of the ring and up the ramp.
