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
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?
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?
3. What’s next for CM Punk?
4. Who will make the next move in the World Title hunt?
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?
5. How will WWE Champion John Cena respond to Ryback?
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.
