Live results for WWE Raw 4/23/2012 (3 Hour Raw)

Whatsup guys and gals, its the SensationalSean here, bringing you another live recap from Raw. Tonight, we have a 3 hour Raw, so sit back, buckle up, and prepare for a wild ride, as kicking off the show is a contract signing between Brock Lesnar and John Cena for their match at Extreme Rules. Also, don't forget to check out for a live chat during Raw with everyone. See you guys soon.

Teddy Long is in the ring, and introduces John Cena, Teddy then introduces Brock Lesnar, but John Laurinitus walks out instead, and says that Brock Lesnar is not there. John tells Teddy Long to tell John Cena to leave Laurinitus's ring, Teddy asks him to leave, and leaves the ring as John Laurinitus begins his usual diatribe about People Power, when you hear Edge's music start up, and out he comes to the shock of John Laurinitus and John Cena. Edge mentions he will not be under contract in a few days, but he came out to talk to John Cena, he came to talk to the John Cena who was his greatest rival, the man who threw him through 2 tables off the top of a ladder, because this is not that John Cena. Edge says that he knows after big losses, people change, but this is different. Edge tells Cena to wake up, and hes not asking Cena to beat Lesnar, he is telling him to. (Great promo from Edge to Cena there)

2nd match
R-Truth vs Lord Tensai
Winner: Lord Tensai via pinfall with the Claw

Kane comes out and says that this Sunday is one of his favorite nights of the year, its when WWE gets extreme. On Sunday, Kane will take out Randy Orton, just like he did to Randys father on Smackdown 2 weeks ago. Kane says that Randy is not the viper, he is just a small little boy calling out for his father to make the nightmare go away. Backstage we see Randy Orton saying it was time for payback, and he turns around to show Paul Bearer beaten in a wheelchair. Orton rolls him into a freezer in the back, and Kane just laughs saying he will not save his supposed father, because the devil himself is Kanes real father. Kane leaves the ring, and as he goes to the back, Orton runs out and attacks him, and drives him away from the ringside area, and Kane runs through the fans.

Backstage we see Chris Jericho walking, and he stops by Alex Riley, who says that CM Punk just kicked him out of the locker room, and he saw him drink out of a gift basket that Jericho sent him. Jericho walks down the hallway to Punks locker room, where the door was open, and we see Punk drinking out of a cup, and talking on the phone. Jericho closes the door and begins to laugh.

Cody Rhodes/Alberto Del Rio vs Great Khali/Big Show
Winner(s): Great Khali/Big Show via pinfall after the chokeslam from Big Show to Cody Rhodes.

Backstage we see Brock Lesnar showing up to Raw, Josh Matthews is backstage and asks Lesnar a few questions, and then asks if Lesnar loses, will he still be the face of WWE. Lesnar grabs Matthews and throws him up against a truck in the back. Lesnar lets him down, and fixes his jacket for him. Matthews says he was just trying to do his job, and Lesnar throws him through a fence set up as a backdrop for intereviews.

Come back from commercial, and we see Josh Matthews being put on a stretcher and being carted out.

During the match Beth got out of the ring to return Nikki to the ring, and as she jumped off the ring, she seemed to injured her ankle or leg. As the lumberjills throw both women in, the ref asks Beth if she can continue and Nikki gets a rollup for the pin. The trainers come down to check out Beth's foot as the Bellas celebrate.

We have 2 police officers in the ring with Teddy, as they prepare to do a field sobriety test on Cm Punk. Jericho comes out, and says he wants to be there when Punk gets stripped, and is ready to have the belt put on him. First thing they want Punk to do is recite the alphabet backwards, as Punk tries to, he starts jawing to Jericho. Second test, walk the straight line. Punk isn't able to walk the line, and Teddy asks the police officer what his opinion is on Punk. The police officer says he is drunk. The officers leave the ring, and Teddy asks for the belt, Punk hands the belt over and asks for another chance, Punk then recites the alphabet backwards while walking the line, and as he gets to A, he hits Jericho in the head with the mic, and begins to destroy Jericho, and as Punk gets to the top of the stage, Teddy Long hands him his belt again and Punk celebrates with the belt.

Lesnar says, that him and Laurinitus need to have a conversation, so he asks John to sit down, and he says he has some changes he wants to see. He has some business demands.....requests, and he has brought a list of the changes, that he would like to see some of these changes before Sunday, actually before tonight is over.
