Backstage News On Ryback’s Main Event Push Prepared For Launch; Exclusive Details On Who Tried To Talk Vince McMahon Out Of What Was Seen On Raw, Another Proposed Backup Plan If John Cena Can’t Go, Possible Survivor Series Opponent For Brock Lesnar & Where Triple H Stands On The Raw Main Event Scene

Well we told you it was about to happen and here we are as Vince McMahon has the rocket pack strapped to Ryback and is ready to launch it. I can confirm speculation that Ryback is Vince’s backup plan if John Cena is unable to go at WWE Hell in a Cell for the WWE Championship against CM Punk.

There are tons of problems with this scenario. As of this writing the plan is to do Punk vs. The Rock for the WWE Championship at Royal Rumble barring an injury to Punk. Punk cannot go under or over Ryback because the company doesn’t want to end Ryback’s win streak nor do they want him to win the WWE Championship from Punk. However, Vince feels the plan offers them a chance to do a solid buyrate.

I’m told many of the higher-ups tried to tell Vince not to rush Ryback and it’s not the right time. It was also stressed there isn’t enough time to build him for a gimmick match on a B-level show. Vince reportedly has an out plan if he had to go with Punk vs. Ryback and would have Brock Lesnar interfere and program the two against one another at Survivor Series. Obviously this would create another painful creative situation that has no desirable outcome (Ryback’s win streak vs. Lesnar’s credibility).

Triple H is said to be against pushing Ryback right now and actually tried to talk Vince out of it on Monday. While Hunter feels Ryback may be a big star down the line there is no point in doing it now. However, Vince is said to be in panic mode and has gone against everyone on pushing Ryback up the food chain. I’m told Hunter wanted to use Big Show as a backup plan to Cena and not worry about the buyrate since Hell in a Cell is just one B-level show.

    While I do like Ryback and hope he makes it into the main event, they need to take it slow like Hunter wants. I think if Vince pushes Ryback to fast, it will just end it ruin. In the end I hope Ryback succeeds with whatever way they go with him, I just hope it's the slower route.

    I would rather have Miz interfere and take out Ryback during the match, setting up a feud between the two for the IC title. Don’t go too far, too fast, even Goldberg held the US title first.

  • Bigdaddychuck

    Even if Cena is healed than what are they going to do after hiac? They got 2 more ppvs after this one. I can see how they could have Brock help punk win vs Cena and than setup ryback and Cena vs Brock and Punk. If they do ryback vs Punk at hiac they are screwed

  • Ranfery25

    Vince is losing his damn mind, Ryback hasn’t proving a damn thing too be worthy of being in the main event of any PPV. Skip Shieffield in a main event is a joke at this point. There are so many other wrestlers more deserving & worthy of facing Punk on the roster *COUGH COUGH* Christian. Hell I’d rather see Brodus Clay, Zack Ryder or Santino fight Punk instead

  • amaanakter786

    Vince is loosing it no offence to Ryback or the person playing the ryback character but he is not a draw he maybe in the future but isnt now this reallly irritates me when VKM just decides to push randoms out of the blue and tries to make them stars it hasnt worked for sheamus or for del rio and thank god Triple H is seeing sense and had the some what logical idea of placing Big Show in the main event scene with him attacking Tensai and Brodus Clay earlier in the night it would have made sense and built him as a babyface monster even though it would destroy the heel turn of show. For the sake of irony i hope that if Cena cannot go and Ryback is in that match it tanks and does a rubbish buyrate thats my opinion it may seem harsh but this type of illogical booking really annoys me!

  • James88

    Ryback needs to further his streak against top guys first!! If punk beats him, then whatever momentum he had will be gone. And it's way too early for lesnar to end his streak. I think we'll see a cowardly punk running away from ryback for a month…then cena can come back for HIAC.

  • Patrick Peralta

    Vince has lost his mind. I like Ryback and I'm a fan but he is not ready right now for a push against CM Punk let alone for the title.. They need to take things slow I agree with HHH Ryback can be a big star in the future but not right now if Vince rushes him and it turns out bad… there goes Ryback's push and Vince will drop him. much like he did Drew McIntyire who Vince was High on him and now he is jobbing on Superstars and NXT and McIntyrie is more talented then Ryback.

    They need to take things slow with Ryback have him feud with Miz for now but not Punk. I hope HHH continues to try talking Vince out of rushing Ryback's push.

  • ericdraven86

    You would think that after 30+ years in the industry Vince knows how it will end when you push a guy the fans are not completely sold on yet….

    • havoc525

      See Khali, The Great…

  • dave c

    another possible route they can take is have rock interfere at HIAC, which build upon punk vs. rock at the rumble

  • Jake

    HHH seems to be right on some things lately, maybe him taking over won't be a bad thing. I agree Punk should keep the title, the way to keep him the most credible is a loss to the Rock at royal rumble (if Punk has to lose the title). Ryback isn't ready, and shouldn't lose yet either. Just use Big Show, unless they can get Jericho for the PPV somehow.

  • Evon Reese

    If Punk beats Ryback clean that will really shows him as Super Punk

    • Bault16

      Really shows him as Super Punk? Is that like Super Domino?

      • Evon Reese

        No. Just Super Punk

        • Bault16

          Cool so you’re just a total tool. Got it

          • izblack

            Another Punk fan I see, anytime someone doesn’t kiss Punk’s ass CM Punk fans resort too name calling as usual. CM Punk is the same way, Punk fans are easily the most ignorant fans in wrestling.

          • Evon Reese

            @izblack you are right. Punk fans claim only women and children are Cena's fans but in reality Punk fans are some of the most juvenile I've seen in a long time.

  • Bault16

    Put the title on Ryback then have him challenge for the world title

  • Ernest Bethea

    Like a few others here, I'm a fan of Ryback, but I feel this is not the right for him to be fed the Main Event. They really should use the Goldberg approach (a la WCW). Goldberg ran rough shod through jobbers to the WCW United States Title, then ran through legit competition until Goldberg defeated Hollywood Hogan for the WCW World Title. Someone said he should steam roll through The Miz and take the IC strap, and I say YES! Think before you push Ryback.

  • What_bry_says

    Ryback still needs to prove himself. Why not do a match on raw ryback vs tensai then as for a ppv ryback vs big show, just to show his strength and endurance and that he’s ready. he needs to throw in a few promo’s too

  • robsharpe84

    Just sounds like Vince is doing what he did with the ultimate warrior!!! Push him like mad and piss off everyone in the back. I'm actually a fan of ryback but its not time to have him in the main event scene. He needs to take the I.C title off miz first and dominate the mid and upper mid carders for a bit and then move up to the main event scene. There's plenty of time to make him a star and it makes no sense to push him like this with all the future creative plans as Richard stated.

    Would it really be the worst thing in the world if a returning Jack Swagger caused interference in the match instead of Brock
