- As noted, WWE officials are still planning on doing Ryback vs. CM Punk for the WWE Title. In an update, that match is currently scheduled for the January 14th RAW from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. WWE will be celebrating RAW's 20 anniversary that night so they are giving Ryback vs. Punk a big stage.
interesting move if they book that match just two weeks out of the Royal Rumble
They used to book championship matches like that back in the AE. HHH would be facing someone at the PPV 6 days away and he'd be made to defend his title the RAW before the PPV.
they should do that more often for the WWE Championship, instead of just on PPVs, the winner would be obvious, but at least it will make the TV show more interesting.
Like Punk defending his title on Smackdown against Kane in the Summer, Sheamus defending against Ziggler & ADR on Smackdown in Summer, etc etc. Its not like they don't do it anymore, buts its very rare.
"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady
