Summer of Punk, Vol. 2
is back after a small hiatus so I'll post a little preview recapping the major happenings of the past couple of weeks...
(The newly crowned WWE Champion Rey Mysterio visiting a local school during the week)
Raw | 8.1.2012 | Indianapolis, Indiana
>> A certain very opinionated Chicagoan whose name shall not be mentioned anymore defeated John Cena to capture the WWE Championship on his way out of the company at Money in the Bank 2011. Vince McMahon immediately announced a tournament to crown a new champion, which didn't sit well with Dolph Ziggler, who claimed the title was fake and regarded his United States Championship as the top title on Raw. McMahon was forced to take a vacation after he tried to fire John Cena and Triple H took the position of the COO in his absence. Rey Mysterio won the tournament and the new WWE Championship, defeating Ziggler in the finals. He was ambushed right after by Money in the Bank -briefcase holder Alberto Del Rio, but John Cena came to the rescue. Triple H named John Cena as Mysterio's first challenger. They will meet at Summerslam in two weeks time. Triple H has an announcement to make about the match at Raw, what does the COO have in mind? Also, Rey Mysterio will talk about his triumphant championship victory, and John Cena prepares for Summerslam by facing Sin Cara!
>> In other championship news, the makeshift team of Kofi Kingston and Evan Bourne defeated Michael McGillicutty and David Otunga formerly of the New Nexus in an impromptu match to claim the title! Zack Ryder also reunited with his old partner Curt Hawkins. Already announced for Raw is an eight-man tag team match where the champions will team up with Ryder and Hawkins to face Otunga, McGillicutty and Smackdown's Jinder Mahal and The Great Khali!
>> Beth Phoenix will face the Divas Champion Kelly Kelly in a Lumberjill Match after attacking her last week during the bikini contest between Kelly and the Bella Twins!
>> The anonymous General Manager has gotten on the nerves of Triple H ever since he started as the COO. The only person who knows his identity is John Laurinaitis, but he wants to be named the new GM if he reveals the secret. Laurinaitis has been trying to get on the boss's good side lately, even helping Rey Mysterio defeat The Miz in the title tournament! Triple H said that Laurinaitis is the last person he wants to run Raw, but soon he might not have any options... How will this situation develop?
>> Also on the show: Michael Cole presents another Michael Cole Exlusive! But who's the guest? Raw's Jack Swagger and Smackdown's 'Mr. Money in the Bank' Daniel Bryan do battle thanks to the brand split no longer being in effect! Could the possible victory impress Vickie Guerrero enough to add 'The All-American American' to the team? And R-Truth has a surprise as he continues his mission to expose the conspiracy in WWE.
