Re: When Should Ryback & Punk Have Their First Match?
I'll say TLC, that way Punk has a way to win without pinning Ryback. Or can win via nefarious means like outside involvement. Both wrestlers stay over (Ryback has excuse), Punk keeps title for one more PPV, and his incredibly annoying internet marks stop bitching about Ryback ruining their hero's reputation.
Otherwise, I could also see a triple threat match where the third man gets pinned. There's no point in putting Punk over Ryback since Punk's 3+ years older, in worse shape, and is talking about retiring early already. Putting Ryback over Punk now (so soon) would just make his marks boo him for months.
