WWE Raw is going to be full of action on Monday night with scheduled appearances from John Cena, CM Punk, Chris Jericho, Kane, Sheamus and Daniel Bryan.

There are many unanswered questions with some other WWE superstars that could be answered this week as well.

Brock Lesnar and Triple H are in the middle of a feud and although they are not being promoted to appear, it would certainly clear things up if they did.


What Is Next with Lesnar and Will It Come on Raw?

Lesnar is literally flipping the WWE upside down. 

His Extreme Rules locker room trashing is still up for debate as to whether it was a stunt or real and last week he broke Triple H's arm because he was not happy with what Triple H had to say.

While the logical answer is no, because of the WWE trying to limit his appearances, anything is possible.

The WWE has always had a tendency to change things up at the last minute and having him appear is more than a possibility.


Will Triple H Make an Appearance Just 1 Week After Breaking His Arm?

Triple H has been all over Vegas in the last week, so it would seem more than likely that he appears on Raw on Monday. It would be hard to sell that he is in so much pain when he was at the Mayweather vs. Cotto fight on Saturday night.

The best way for the WWE to show that he is indeed injured but can still be active is to have him appear in the ring. An appearance, a quick speech and then he can be on his way to receive the surgery that the WWE has said he will require.


What About John Cena?

Finally, what is in store when Cena appears on Monday night after being assaulted by Lord Tensai and John Laurinaitis last week?

Hopefully, we find out more details on the Cena vs. Laurinaitis match at Over the Limit. It would not surprise me if Laurinaitis reveals a twist, such as a handicap match with Cena versus both Laurinaitis and Tensai.

It would allow Cena the opportunity to continue to restore his reputation with another great win on pay-per-view. If he loses the match then no one will say it was that bad of a loss considering it was a handicap match. 

Either way, it seems like a one-on-one match with Tensai is inevitable for Cena. There should be some clarification after Raw.


CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho

Let's not forget the WWE Championship will be on the line between CM Punk and Chris Jericho. These two guys continue to feud and anything can happen in this one. At this point, who knows what to expect between them.

Overall, it looks to be an entertaining night and we can only hope for a few surprises to be thrown in throughout the show.
