Backstage News On Ryback vs. CM Punk Finish At HIAC, WWE’s Feelings On Ryback’s Streak
WWE officials have decided on a finish for Ryback vs. CM Punk for the WWE Title at Sunday’s Hell In a Cell pay-per-view but the source adds that it could change between now and then, according to a new report from F4Wonline.com.
At one point, CM Punk was scheduled to win the match. The feeling was that of Ryback being undefeated and Punk’s run as WWE Champion, Punk’s streak is more important in the sense that they’re building to WrestleMania season with Punk, The Rock and John Cena. Punk going into the Royal Rumble as WWE Champion for one year will be better than him going into the pay-per-view after trading the title with Ryback just months earlier.
It’s believed that breaking Ryback’s streak isn’t the best thing for him but his run has never been built around being undefeated anyway. There’s a feeling that if Ryback loses at Hell In a Cell, as long as they go right back to pushing him super strong and have him run through everyone, he can be rehabbed.
It should noted that the source reported that the finish to the match had been changed again before being decided on. Meaning that both Ryback and Punk at one point have been penciled in as winning within the last four days. Word is that regardless of what happens at Hell In a Cell, Punk will be the WWE Champion going into his match with The Rock at Royal Rumble.
