The April 8th, 2013 edition which had one of he best crowds in history ended with Ryback standing tall over Cena. People are speculating that this was a heel turn. There is also a lot of talk about a triple threat between Henry, Ryback, and Cena. I am going to address each of these statements and discuss where Ryback goes from here until next WrestleMania.
First things first, coming off of a loss at the show of shows Ryback made a huge impact on Raw. This immediately puts the Animal, Ryback, into the title picture. He even posed with the belt over Cena’s broken body. This created an image that could be seen later on this year only the title will actually belong to him. I don’t think this was a full heel turn. I believe it was just Ryback handling business and giving himself a chance at the title. At Extreme Rules Henry I don’t think will be involved in the match. Henry lost his match last night, although by count out, Mark lost his chance for number one contender ship. They could blow off the Ryback versus Henry feud next week with a number one contender match which Ryback will win. Bottom line I think Ryback versus John Cena for the WWE Championship will main event Extreme Rules.
At Extreme Rules Cena should retain. After Cena finally toppling the Rock he can’t just lose the belt a month after. Then, have Ryback and Cena have some return matches. Possibly two but definitely one. Then you can have Ryback face Orton, Sheamus, and other people like them until Survivor Series. At Survivor Series they can build up a match that I would love to see. They can give Ryback possibly his biggest challenge yet. Ryback versus Brock Lesnar would be a great attraction. It wouldn’t be a good wrestling match, but if they add a street fight stipulation it could be an amazing brawl. This match however, would be hard to book.
Then, at Royal Rumble have him come so close again to winning. He would be in the final two and get eliminated by a simple mistake by another rising star. After, Ryback uses that to start building towards the chamber. He says that he was so close again. This will motivate him to get into the Elimination Chamber for the number one contender spot for the title the Rumble winner doesn’t go after. He should win the Chamber and then at ‘Mania win the hopefully World Heavyweight Championship.
This plan would build him up with brutal matches with Cena and Brock., final two in the Rumble again, and a Chamber winner. People may say he doesn’t need to be built up more but if you look back he hasn’t been winning on Pay Per Views. He would be a credible champion, and WWE has a new major star. Tell me what you think will happen with Ryback this year.
