Re: its getting obvious
I actually think they've done something pretty good.
I know many people don't like Ryback for whatever reason. However, they were and are building up Ryback as a monster. When he was undefeated, they had people who started chanting Goldberg, not just because of his appearance and such, but also because of how he was being pushed.
Give WWE some credit, they've allowed Ryback to lose, but lose in ways which don't destroy his "push" or his winning streak. They've kept him as a strong monster without having to resort to the massive Goldberg-esque undefeated streak.
They've also done a good job about not necessarily having him going "after the belt", but rather just out to "kick ass".
I think they are also doing a good job with CM Punk. Let's be honest, he isn't going to win clean over Cena or Ryback. To hope that he would is just a little ridiculous. He is a heel, and they're job is to get you to hate him as much as possible, and have him win in the most devious or least legitimate ways. This will help build CM Punk up to get absolutely stomped by the Rock at Royal Rumble, which we all know is the end goal here.
