Raw Five-Point Preview: April 22, 2013

With WrestleMania 29 in the books, the road to Extreme Rules is heating up. Brock Lesnar wants Triple H in a Steel Cage Match and Ryback has his sights on WWE Champion John Cena! With emotions still running high from last week’s Raw, here are five reasons to tune in Monday at 8/7 CT on USA Network when WWE rolls into London.

1. Triple H headed to London

Raw Five-Point Preview: April 22, 2013

Triple H will be at Monday’s Raw to respond to  Brock Lesnar’s challenge of a Steel Cage Match at Extreme Rules. Considering his current injury, will The Game agree to the brutal encounter? The score between the two ring warriors stands tied at 1-1, with Lesnar forcing Triple H to tap out at SummerSlam and The King of Kings winning their grueling fight at WrestleMania 29. Will the WWE Universe get to witness round three at Extreme Rules?

2. Can The Undertaker help stop The Shield?

Raw Five-Point Preview: April 22, 2013

Ever since their debut, The Shield have taken on — and taken down — a slew of WWE Superstars. Most recently, it was WWE Champion John Cena who was pummeled by the black-clad renegades. Now the group must tangle with one of WWE’s most dangerous Superstars, The Undertaker! Together with WWE Tag Team Champion Daniel Bryan, The Brothers of Destruction will reunite and do battle in a Six-Man Tag Team Match. Are Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose finally headed for their first loss?

Vote: Will The Undertaker be the one to help defeat The Shield?

3. What’s next for CM Punk?

While addressing the WWE Universe, CM Punk walks away: Raw, April 15, 2013

CM Punk is visibly affected following his loss to Undertaker at WrestleMania 29.

After losing his coveted WWE Championship to The Rock and failing to beat The Streak at WrestleMania 29, CM Punk is clearly at a crossroads. Last week on Raw, The Straight Edge Superstar was so emotional about his current state of affairs that he simply dropped the microphone and walked out of the ring. The Voice of the Voiceless had gone shockingly silent. Will Punk or Paul Heyman offer any clues as to where Punk’s head is at?

Vote: What is the meaning behind CM Punk’s walkout on Raw?

4. Who will make the next move in the World Title hunt?

Jack Swagger attacks Alberto Del Rio before he can challenge Dolph Ziggler for his World Title: Raw, April 15, 2013

Jack Swagger makes sure that his presence is felt when Alberto Del Rio confronts the new World Champion Dolph Ziggler.

World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler hasn’t been able to savor his new championship for very long. He’s already been pitted to defend his title against former World Heavyweight Champions Alberto Del Rio and Jack Swagger in a Triple Threat Match at Extreme Rules.

Last week on Raw, tensions boiled over between the three, culminating in Swagger scoring a non-title victory over Ziggler. Is it a sign of things to come? Is it fair that SmackDown General Manager Booker T arranged for Ziggler to defend his title in a Triple Threat Match? What will unfold between the three heavyweights in London?

Vote: Who should be running SmackDown?

5. How will WWE Champion John Cena respond to Ryback?

Ryback stands by as The Shield attacks John Cena: Raw, April 15, 2013

Ryback shows WWE Champion John Cena a lot by standing by and doing nothing.

One night after John Cena captured the WWE Title at WrestleMania, Ryback attacked him on Raw. Last week, The Shield decimated the WWE Champion as Ryback stood and watched. Will the Cenation leader look for some payback in London?

The international audience at the Raw after WrestleMania made for a legendary and raucous night. Is the WWE Universe poised to deliver another historic night in London? Tune in Monday at 8/7 CT on USA Network.
