Over The Limit 2012 Matches Set on Raw

As of the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, two matches have been set for the upcoming Over The Limit 2012 Pay-Per-View.  That event takes place on Sunday, May 20th, and will feature at least one major championship on the line, so far.

The championship match will have CM Punk defending the WWE Championship against challenger Daniel Bryan.  Bryan won a "Beat the Clock Challenge" held on Raw, by winning his match in the quickest time of all competitors.  Bryan's opponent was Jerry "The King" Lawler, whom he made tap out to the "Yes" Lock.  Other competitors in the tournament included The Miz, Santino Marella, Randy Orton, Kane, Great Khali, Chris Jericho, and The Big Show.

The other match that was set up on Raw involves John Cena.  He will be taking on his boss, John Laurinaitis, at Over the Limit 2012.  Cena received a thorough beatdown due to an in-ring attack by Laurinaitis, along with Lord Tensai and his assistant.  The trio attacked Cena's injured left arm which was already in a sling after being hurt the night before by Brock Lesnar at Extreme Rules.

As of this report, there are no stipulations for either of these matches, but with several weeks to go before the event, it's possible something could be added.  Of note, the main event at the past two editions of this Pay-Per-View was an "I Quit" match for the WWE Championship, with Cena the champion in each of those.  His competitors were Batista in 2010, and The Miz in 2011.
Over the Limit 2012 is scheduled for May 20th and will take place live from Raleigh, North Carolina at the PNC Arena.
