Punk/Rock WILL happen. And I don't think WWE want to cut Punk's reign short just to give Ryback a filler reign and to only have Punk win the title back later, no, they're treating Ryback like a really big deal so I imagine Ryback's first title reign will be something special, he'll hold it for months to really establish himself (like Sheamus is doing now) and he'll probably win at WrestleMania for the same reason, to establish him, so I highly doubt he'll win the title here. I don't know what will happen, but Punk will retain somehow. The ideal scenario would to be a draw, with Punk retaining the title and Ryback keeping his undefeated streak, but I don't know how they could do that in a Hell in a Cell.
Look, I've said in recent posts that I don't hate Ryback. I'm just annoyed they are skyrocketing him into a feud that could hurt wrestlers I prefer to him (e.g. Punk). At the time I wrote that he wasn't due to main-event for the WWE Title and yeah, that changes things.
As far as big-guys go he is OK and has good charisma, but he shouldn't be anywhere near a PPV main-event against Punk especially when it means it's likely he HAS to win the match. Him winning would impact on the potential Rock vs. Punk match and while it's not Ryback's fault, it has soured him for me a bit. I'd have been fine with him continuing to squash midcarders for a few more months, winning the Rumble and winning the WHC at 'Mania. What they're doing now, I'm not OK with at all.
Also don't act like you've never had a drastic change in opinion, since we all have, and if I wanted to I'm sure I could find supposed contradictions from you too. Things change and they in turn change your opinions of wrestlers. It happens.
