Ding, dong, “People Power” is dead! Kaput. Dunzo. Eighty-sixed. Adios. John Laurinaitis and his controversial initiative got the hard goodbye at No Way Out after John Cena defeated Big Show in a Steel Cage Match – a victory that carried the stipulation that Big Johnny would be future-endeavored if The World’s Largest Athlete couldn’t pick up the win. With Cena standing victorious and the power structure of Raw suddenly up in the air, the first Raw SuperShow A.L. (after Laurinaitis) is sure to carry plenty of implications. Here are five developments to watch out for.

Bye bye, Big Johnny (?)

“People Power” met its ignominious end in the swamps of New Jersey, and Mr. Excitement has officially found himself out of a job as a result of Big Show’s defeat. But is the scheming GM really gone for good? Monday will be the first Raw SuperShow of the post-“People Power” era, and there’s sure to be some discussion about who will succeed Big Johnny as the red brand’s authority figure. But if there’s one thing the WWE Universe has learned, it’s that Laurinaitis is cleverer than most, and it’s possible he’s got one last ace up his sleeve (see what we did there). Have we seen the last of Laurinaitis?


Will Brock and Heyman play The Game?

At No Way Out, Triple H made his first return to a WWE ring since his injury at Brock Lesnar’s hands, baiting the wrecking machine with a one-on-one challenge to settle their differences in lieu of Lesnar’s two existing lawsuits against WWE. Lesnar’s legal representative Paul Heyman will almost certainly have some kind of a response for The King of Kings but will the ECW mastermind and his ruthless protégé accept The Game’s offer? Or will the COO need to sweeten the pot to get Brock to play ball?


Is AJ playing with fire?



The sneaky smile on AJ's face as Kane carried her away may have spoken volumes about where her heart really lies. The unbalanced Diva shared another stunning kiss with The Big Red Monster at No Way Out, then later wound up helping WWE Champion CM Punk win the Triple Threat Match by interfering as Kane had control of the battle. Is AJ actually attracted to Kane? Or is she just toying with The Big Red Monster? And if the latter is the case, will Kane torment AJ and make her regret using him as a pawn in the bizarre love triangle?


The last straw for Ziggler and Swagger?

Something that hasn’t quite been addressed yet: In the Fatal 4-Way that won him the No. 1 contender spot for Sheamus’ title, Dolph Ziggler actually pinned his estranged tag partner, Jack Swagger, to make it to the final two against Christian. The Showoff has gone on record to say he’s grown tired of his tag team with The All-American American, and Vickie Guerrero is surely grasping at straws trying to keep her stable intact. Will costing his partner a shot at the World Title be the straw that broke the camel’s back?


The revolution will be televised?

As Raw SuperShow rolls into Zack Ryder’s home turf at the Nassau Coliseum, the Zack Pack is growing restless. The Ultimate Broski has been absent the last few weeks from Raw, and the ravenous denizens of the LI will be champing at the bit to see their boy in action. Ryder never disappoints his hometown crowd; what will the self-proclaimed “Internet Champion” have in store for his big homecoming?​

The fallout and stuff from No Way Out

Who is our GM?!

Who are our world champions?

WHO STILL HAS A TUXEDO?!
Obviously not the official preview.

Discuss.

Could be a good Raw.

The board will re-instate Big johnny if Lesnar wins against HHH at Summerslam. Most likely thats the direction they are heading.

Yeah i'm quite looking forward to this. It's that time of year where they get creativeso i'm hoping we get something good. The way that show ended does suggest we might get something fresh & original.

It's more so hope than expectation though.

Ace will get his job back in a messy Brock/HHH finish at SS.
Most likely.

Really glad I didn't order tonight's pay-per-view, reading the results. Yuck.

Oh well, looking forward to Lesnar/Triple H at Summerslam, live and in person, regardless.

Could be. Hoping they have a good follow-up for the GM storyline (like Heyman as the temporary GM), but expecting the worst (like Hornswoggle)...

I'll be there. Heyman showing up would be awesome, Brock even better. Interested to see if they follow up with ZigZag and the title/AJ picture.

Only Brock can really save this summer. Hope he breaks HBK's arm off at RAW 1000.

Sounds about right, along with Ziggler tapping out in the middle of the ring with Vicki pouting over it.

It's almost a fool's bet that this will be happening.

Re: **Official Raw Discussion Thread - 6/18/12**

So I'm wondering if Ziggler goes back to mid-card hell.
They'll probably start to try to give him some kind of Miz-from-three-years-ago push after getting crushed by Sheamus and Cena in a 24-hour time period. Climb through the ranks, change the look, disassociate from Vicki, sign on with AW, etceteras... Except about a month or six weeks into it, they'll completely drop it and start doing something else, because Vince is three years more out of touch, crazed and apparently half-senile.

Oh my.

I hope they don't change his look. I remember when he had a hair cut he looked so generic.
