SAN ANTONIO – About the only thing hotter than the triple-digit temperatures scorching San Antonio was the palpable intensity throughout Monday night's three-hour Raw. Why did WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels potentially change the complexion of Triple H's match against Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam? And how did Big Show stop WWE Champion CM Punk from closing the show as the lone commanding Superstar once again? Find out the answers to these questions and more in WWE.com's results, photos and videos of all the action on Raw. (WATCH HIGHLIGHTS)

AJ Lee allowed the WWE Universe to pick WWE Champion CM Punk's opponent for Raw
Raw General Manager AJ Lee kicked off the night by announcing two big matches for Raw: Randy Orton vs. Big Show and John Cena vs. Daniel Bryan. As she was about to announce another match, WWE Champion CM Punk's music blared and The Straight Edge Superstar came out to the ring to apologize for letting the emotions get the better of him when he angrily confronted AJ last week on Raw. After the Raw GM accepted his apology, Punk told AJ she made a mistake by putting him a Triple Threat Match at SummerSlam and urged her to cancel the bout against Cena and Big Show, but the Raw GM refused to comply. The WWE Champion accused AJ of just trying to get back at him for when he rejected her marriage proposal in front of the whole WWE Universe. (PHOTOS)

Before Punk could plead further, John Cena interrupted The Second City Savior and called him out for turning into someone who demands respect instead of just commanding it. Punk fired back at the Cenation leader, telling Cena that he deserves the right to complain about being disrespected. After Punk and Cena exchanged some more harsh words, Big Show tried to enter the fray, but AJ stopped him dead in his tracks and said she wasn't going to let things get out of hand on her show. The Raw GM told Cena and Big Show they have matches to get ready for, and then revealed Punk also has a match of his own tonight — against an opponent of the WWE Universe's choosing from the following choices: Rey Mysterio, Kane or The Miz. AJ has quickly proven that she's not afraid to embrace the power of RAWactive now that she's in charge.
