— It was previously reported that WWE is still looking to run the CM Punk vs. Ryback rematch on an upcoming edition of WWE Monday Night RAW. While it seemed as if the company was looking to hold the bout on January 14th, the feeling is that it is too close to the date of the Rumble PPV. There is now talk of CM Punk vs. Ryback taking place on the January 7th episode of RAW and immediately going into the build of the Rock match on the same show.
— The Rock will have a very busy schedule in early 2012.
