The Day After Raw: Your Tweets for May 29, 2012
Raw SuperShow descended into madness Monday night when an irate Big Show ran rampant through an array of WWE Superstars who the giant felt had personally disrespected him ( PHOTOS: BRODUS CLAY VS. BIG SHOW). But before Show's rampage closed out the show on Monday, there were plenty of fun surprises to be had for the WWE Universe, who got not one, but two covers for "WWE '13" (well, only one true cover), a hint of dissention in Vickie Guerrero's stable and, of course, the CM Punk-Daniel Bryan rematch the WWE Universe had been clamoring for. The implications of Monday's events spread far and wide, so without further ado, here are your tweets for a particularly impactful Day After Raw.
It's the Big, Bad Show tonight
Funkateers can take slight solace in the fact that Big Show technically didn't beat Brodus Clay in their highly anticipated grudge match on Raw SuperShow. But it's small comfort considering the destruction The World's Largest Athlete rained down on a WWE locker room who he felt was sorely in need of a message from the angry giant. Everyone from Alex Riley to WWE Tag Team Champions R-Truth & Kofi Kingston found themselves targeted by the big man, but it was Clay who found himself No. 1 on the hit list.
@spz34: Big Show is the comet that wiped out the Funkasaurus @wwe #RAW

Lucky No. 13
Whew! For a second there, the WWE Universe thought Big Johnny really had finagled his way onto the cover of "WWE '13" (although, as you'll see, the idea appealed to more than a few of you), and the collective sigh of relief when CM Punk revealed himself as the poster boy for the newest WWE game was palpable all the way from New Orleans to Stamford, Conn., itself. And, needless to add, the WWE Champion brought the same brand of style to the momentous announcement as he does to ... well, everything else, really. Congrats, Punk.

The Best(s) in the World
Ask, and you shall receive: The WWE Universe was pretty unanimous in their excitement over a CM Punk-Daniel Bryan rematch on Raw SuperShow. The two mat technicians - extending their rivalry from WWE Over the Limit - clashed in yet another tightly-matched clinic pitting expert against expert. And unlike many of their past encounters, a clear winner was crowned when Bryan stole a win from Punk ... although it's safe to say that an interfering Kane didn't share the enthusiasm of the tweeting masses, as The Devil's Favorite Demon took a steel chair to D-Bry's midsection before the first "YES!" was out of his mouth.

Eve-Riley 'shippers? Did Zack Ryder win his highly-hashtagged bout with the catering department? Does Randy Orton really have beef with The Miz, or does he just like RKO'ing people? And what are these "We Want Regal" signs that are starting to pop up? Here's what you had to say about the rest of a wild Raw SuperShow.
