Ryback can continue to dominate and then refocus on the IC title or maybe higher with the WHC, which is clearly the second best title.
Yes he is over with the live crowds but if you really think about it, the man could even get more from defeat than a title ruin of what? 2 or 3 months? I really don't think they are going to allow him to get a long title reign like Punk and there is no way they are going to put him over the Rock, not even if The rock is willing to do so.
In the end also, I know it sounds starnge but character wise, Punk needs to win this one and defeat Cena in the next one, even if he loses to the Rock, which is the most likely scenario.
But for Ryback in defeat, if it is really butal, it will put him over a lot, and followed by a feud with Big show it could even make him more dangerous and eventually get the title.
