My sentiments exactly. WWE basically trolled the entire IWC. When Dolph cut the promo that he'd become the unified champ, I thought that there could be a possibility of such an outcome if WWE was willing to even throw that out there, but I lost interest in RR once Dolph was eliminated. I was also pulling for Ryback once it was him, Cena, and Sheamus left.
Ryback has been positioned as the guy who, no matter what, cannot get the job done. Wasn't able to defeat Punk in the 3 opportunities he had, and wasn't able to eliminate Cena at Rumble. Ryback has grown on me big time in the last few weeks. He has more loyal fans now than Cena does. At least Ryback gets mainly cheers while Cena still gets split reactions after all these years.
After Cena won the Rumble, I began doing other house chores and things b/c I completely lost interest. I didn't get into Punk/Rock match until maybe 10 minutes later b/c the ending was already written in stone.
