Raw Five-Point Preview: Oct. 15, 2012

Last week’s Raw ended in a brutal showdown between Mr. McMahon and WWE Champion CM Punk. The WWE Universe is still buzzing about the epic encounter! Now that The Chairman has demanded Punk choose his Hell in a Cell opponent on tonight's Raw, what will unfold? Here are five reasons Raw is must-see tonight at 8/7 CT on USA Network.

Will the WWE Champion pick John Cena or Ryback for Hell in a Cell?

Raw Five-Point Preview: Oct. 15, 2012

For weeks, WWE Champion CM Punk has denied John Cena his request for a match at Hell in a Cell. But, it’s finally decision time for the WWE Champion. Will Punk select Cena or Ryback?

Behind door one is a 10-time WWE Champion. Behind door two is an unpredictable and ruthless Superstar. While many would assume it's not going to be an easy decision for The Straight Edge Superstar, a tweet by The Voice of the Voiceless has stated quite the contrary. Find out what Punk has to say on the impeding decision. ( FULL STORY)

Will John Cena even be cleared to compete at Hell in a Cell?

Let’s say WWE Champion CM Punk chooses to face John Cena at Hell in a Cell, will Cena even be ready? Although the former WWE Champion appeared on last week’s Raw, questions remain if Cena will be medically cleared to compete for the Oct. 28 pay-per-view. Less than a month ago, he underwent surgery to remove bone chips in his arm. ( FULL STORY)

And although Cena's arm is out of a sling, he is still recovering, as evidenced by the special SpiderTech tape on his arm. ( WHAT IS SPIDERTECH TAPE?)

Is AJ Lee right about CM Punk?

On last week’s Raw, General Manager AJ Lee told WWE Champion CM Punk, "I know that you're too scared to fight John Cena."

Is the GM correct about The Straight Edge Superstar? Will Punk avoid choosing Ryback as his Hell in a Cell opponent because he is afraid of the larger opponent?

Or, could the GM’s opinion play a role in Punk’s decision making process? Could he choose Ryback just to spite AJ and prove he is not scared?

What will Paul Heyman do next?

Paul Heyman and J.R. weigh-in on Mr. McMahon's match with CM Punk: Raw, Oct. 8, 2012

Paul Heyman and J.R. try to talk CM Punk and Mr. McMahon out of their match.

Last week on Raw, Paul Heyman recommended it would be best if CM Punk lost his match to Mr. McMahon. And when trying to call the match off, Heyman told The Chairman, “I’m not here for CM Punk’s sake; I’m here for your sake.”

What kind of advice has Heyman been giving Punk regarding Hell in a Cell? Which opponent — Ryback or John Cena — does Heyman prefer his client face at Hell in a Cell? Will Heyman and Punk be in agreement about whom the WWE Champion should defend his title against at Hell in a Cell?

What about what Ryback wants?

Raw Five-Point Preview: Oct. 15, 2012

There’s been a lot of talk about what WWE Champion CM Punk and John Cena want. But what about Ryback? What does he want?

With Ryback’s continued demands to be fed more, he certainly appears hungry to face Punk at Hell in a Cell. If Punk doesn't choose Ryback, how might he react?

But  assuming Ryback does want to face Punk  is he truly ready to face WWE’s best while locked inside the Cell? With his limited time in the ring, does Ryback know what he’s getting into?

Regardless who Punk chooses, Monday's Raw is certain to be a memorable stop on the way to Hell in a Cell.
