Neither John Cena, Paul Heyman or Brock Lesnar are on the show live tonight, but there will be a lot of promotional work for their match on the show tonight.
A interview was shot with Brock Lesnar that is said to be his candid comments, with the idea of trying to duplicate the reaction of the Lesnar/Mir sitdown promo which led to one of the biggest PPV shows of all-time.
Heyman described on the MMA Hour that no WWE writers were involved and nothing was scripted. This was taped a few weeks back to use on one of the later weeks before the show. There is also a taped interview with Cena and I believe Heyman that were taped two weeks ago.
All three will be on Raw next week. Cena is off doing a movie. Heyman was off because he will appear on tape, and Lesnar isn't on the show due to his limited contractual dates.
