Tonight’s episode of WWE RAW emanates live from Greenville, South Carolina. With the dust settled from WrestleMania 29, the road to Extreme Rules (5/19) begins. Here are the major items to look forward to heading into the show:
– After taking a week off last week, CM Punk returns to RAW tonight to address his loss to The Undertaker at WrestleMania.
– The WWE title picture was shaken up last week, with Mark Henry confronting John Cena at the start of the show and Ryback laying out the WWE Champion at the end of the show. WWE publicly stated that The Rock is the #1 contender, however his injury and movie schedule will likely pave the way for Ryback, Mark Henry or both challenging Cena at next month’s PPV.
– New World Heavyweight champion Dolph Ziggler will be in the house, as will The Shield. Following their confrontation with The Undertaker and Team Hell No last week, The Shield is expected to begin a feud with the WWE tag team champions. Plus – will the “Fandangoing” phenomenon continue?
The advertised dark match main event for tonight will see Ryback and Dolph Ziggler challenging John Cena and Alberto Del Rio.
