At this time, there is a lot of discussion about the January 7th edition of WWE Monday night RAW. On that night, not only will The Rock be returning, but WWE has also announced that CM Punk will defend the WWE Title against Ryback in a TLC match on the show.

It appears that WWE is planning to tease some interaction with Ryback and The Rock. One of the scenarios thrown out is that they would tease Rock vs. Ryback, teasing that Ryback could beat CM Punk and go on to face The Rock at Royal Rumble.
