Raw Preview 04/29/12

After last night's Extreme Rules Pay-Per-View, many superstars from both Raw and Smackdown may be bruised, bloodied and battered, leaving fans to wonder who will be available to compete.  In one contest, fans saw the hometown hero, CM Punk, face Chris Jericho in a Chicago Street Fight.  Both guys used multiple weapons, holds, moves, and high risk maneuvers.  In the end, it was "Chicago's Favorite Son" who captured the win though.  Punk will enter Raw as the WWE Champion, with two straight Pay-Per-View victories over his nemesis Chris Jericho.  Will Jericho continue to be the top contender to challenge Punk, or will a new competitor emerge?

Also during the latest Pay-Per-View results, John Cena and Brock Lesnar finally went at it.  In previous meetings, the former MMA star and WWE Champ Lesnar managed to draw blood on Cena, and get the best of him.  It appeared the same way during the Extreme Rules results, as Brock continued to take down Cena and used all sorts of punches, holds, and tactics from his UFC days.  However, Cena withstood a lot of punishment, eventually using his steel chain as a weapon to KO Lesnar, before hitting the Attitude Adjustment on him.  With the win, Cena gave a farewell speech, signaling that his days as a WWE star may be over due to a firing from John Laurinaitis.  Will Cena be sent home from Monday's episode of Raw?

And finally, the General Manager of Raw and Smackdown, John Laurinaitis, was seen taking a private call backstage during Extreme Rules PPV.  That call came from the WWE COO Triple H.  Later in the night, when Matt Striker tried to ask Laurinaitis about the call, he wouldn't give any big details.  Do Laurinaitis and Triple H have something in the works?  What was the nature of the cell phone call?

Check out tonight's episode of WWE Raw for all of the latest followup to the Extreme Rules PPV and more!
