Following Monday's epic ending to RAW, the "hurt" John Cena will officially take on John Laurinaitis on Sunday, May 20 on the Over the Limit pay-per-view. Over the Limit 2012 will also include a Fatal Four-Way for the World Heavyweight Championship between Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio, Chris Jericho and Randy Orton.

Not to take away from the World Heavyweight Championship bout, but the Cena vs. Laurinaitis matchup is incredibly interesting. "Mr. Excitement" has done a great job leading SmackDown and RAW as the general manager, however, Laurinaitis used to wrestle back in his glory days, so this will not be an easy task for Cena. 

The two headline a jam-packed night in Raleigh, N.C. in which both the World Heavyweight Championship and WWE Championship will be up for grabs.  

Before informing Cena that the two would be fighting each other at Over the Limit 2012, "Mr. Excitement" had Cena fight Brock Lesnar at Extreme Rules, a match in which Cena sustained an arm "injury"—showing him in a sling on the following Monday Night RAW.  

Laurinaitis, along with help from Lord Tensai, beat down on Cena and his arm that Monday night to send Cena the right message heading into Over the Limit 2012. 

It is very clear that Laurinaitis wants Lesnar to be the overwhelming face of the WWE, and it's this exact reason that he is calling upon himself to fight Cena at Over the Limit 2012 and personally hand him the loss to damper Cena's WWE career.
