Obviously the original plan is Rock/Punk. But with Cena's injury and Ryback's rise, plans change. If/When Ryback wins the title, and if it's 1-1 against Punk, he's winning it at HIAC. Then going to a strong run where he gets more over, they're going to go with the hottest attraction.
Rock/Ryback can be like Rock/Lesnar, not a lot of talking from Lesnar's side, and Rock just hyping and hyping the first confrontation between them. Two bulls against each other always creates the most interest. Either way, Rock is probably coming back to the special 20 years RAW, then there's only 2 shows until the Rumble PPV anyway.

Ryback is going to be big in a few years, don't see this as wasting a match TBH. It's not like you got a series of megastars waiting for a match anyway.
