The Big Show explains his actions at WWE Over The Limit while John Cena gets more than he bargains for.
The show begins with John Cena on the microphone explaining how perplexed he is at the actions of The Big Show at Over The Limit after the humiliation his suffered on last week’d edition of Raw. Laurinaitis comes out and sells his injuries and tells everyone of how he re-hired Show Saturday (which would mean Show would have been fired for getting involved in the match Sunday) and how John Cena will face him at No Way Out. Show talks about how no one should be judging him and how he will knock Cena out at No Way Out.

6) 2 on 3 Handicap Lumberjack Match: John Cena & Sheamus vs. Jack Swagger, Dolph Ziggler, and Tensai (w/Sakamoto)
This was a typical lumberjack match with the face wrestlers getting pummeled in the ring for most of the match and all heel lumberjacks. After a bit of time, the heel lumberjacks come in the ring to beat down Cena and Sheamus but, the babyfaces make the save and Cena finds Laurinaitis in the back as he looks for Show after the match only to be reminded he can’t touch the GM.
Typical Raw, it’s been on a down trend lately, there hasn’t been a whole lot of positives as the week’s blend together and the matches are very bleak. Hopefully things turn around and it becomes a little more compelling because the post-Wrestlemania stuff has been weak.
