Raw Preview 05/07/12

Tonight's Raw comes one week after several heinous attacks were perpetrated against top WWE superstars.  In the opening segment last week, Raw General Manager John Laurinaitis called down his top star, Brock Lesnar, to compliment him on a great fight at Extreme Rules.  Despite Brock losing, it looked like Laurinaitis was still giving Brock the "face of the WWE" title.  However, WWE COO Triple H came to the ring to disagree, and told Lesnar they would not bow in to his previous demands.  This clearly upset Lesnar, who proceeded to attack and injur Triple H's arm.  The latest reports indicated the WWE COO would need surgery for the injury.  Meanwhile, Brock Lesnar's status with WWE is in limbo.  Will he be officially fired on Monday Night, or will John Laurinaitis reinstate Brock?

Also attacked on last Monday's show was an already-injured John Cena.  Cena had his arm in a sling after fighting Brock Lesnar the night before at Extreme Rules.  While Cena came up on the winning end of the match, he did suffer several injuries, including his left arm due to Lesnar's MMA arm hold.  Later in the night, John Laurinaitis came to the ring where Cena was to announce his next Pay-Per-View opponent.  Laurinaitis seemed to reveal that Cena would be fighting Lord Tensai.  However, as Tensai and his assistant Sakimoto surrounded Cena, it was Laurinaitis who hit Cena from behind, and later smashed a steel chair on Cena's injured arm.  Laurinaitis also announced he will be Cena's opponent at Over the Limit.  What will John Cena have to say regarding this attack and upcoming match?  Will he be present on Raw?

WWE Raw also saw the crowning of new tag team champions, as the team of R-Truth and Kofi Kingston were able to defeat Primo and Epico in a match.  The duo had a successful match on Smackdown as well as they took on Hunico and Camacho in tag action.  During that match, the former champs Primo and Epico, along with Rosa Mendes and talent manager Abraham Washington were all watching.  What does AW have in store for the current tag champs?  Will he be signing the former champs to a deal and help them regain their glory?

Check out Monday Night Raw tonight at 9PM EST on USA!
