The story coming out of last week's WWE television tapings was to announce Ryback vs. CM Punk in a TLC match for the WWE Championship for the January 7, 2013 episode of Raw but for the match to actually not occur.

Apparently the talk was to do an angle with The Rock to come out and make sure Punk keeps the title so he can defend it against him at Royal Rumble. The problem is obvious in that Ryback would be going under which would be solved by having The Shield take care of him.

As with anything storyline related, this is subject to change but it's worth noting Rock is officially advertised for the January 7th Raw and the build to Royal Rumble is expected to begin in full force as the company doesn't want to "waste" any Rock dates.
