Lately it seems as if WWE has been trying to fast-track Ryback to the main event scene a little faster then many have anticipated. Just a few weeks back Ryback was battling jobbers in fill in matches but lately we are now witnessing confrontations with WWE Champion, CM Punk. Something seems to be missing there.

In my opinion, and some will agree, when WWE pushes start out of desperation and are rushed, that star eventually dies off quickly and doesn't hold its long term market value. Take Jack Swagger for example.

History has proven that long term development of WWE stars seem to have a better outcome. Take a look at Steve Austin, The Rock, Triple H, Edge, and even CM Punk. The list can go on and on. My point is, those names didn't go from facing no-namers one week, to getting a WWE title match the next. Those above listed names had long-term build to help establish their name and character with the audience.

WWE should build Ryback up by squashing through the mid-card scene first. WWE was on the right track when he went up against The Miz, however when he confronted CM Punk, it just didn't have the right feeling.

If WWE does decide to have Ryback go against CM Punk at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, where will we see him go next?

ryback isn't ready for that just yet. he needs the mid card level for the next yr and then maybe give a shot once in awhile, but not right now it will ruin his whole persona, but WWE is very good at doing that.

Should have a midcard/upper midcard fued, hell they could have him, if it happens, lose because he was distracted by the guy he's next to fued with(probably Miz), they need a way to put him in the lime light the sweep him away from it at an convenient time.

@ryan which is what IMO ruined his debut. Hence putting him on the back burner by having him work his way up properly

Yeah steve I agree. After Punk what's next? Yes theres Cena but after Cena then what? See, moving him to fast, you gotta walk before you can run.

I said it before they should build just like WCW did Goldberg have him win a midcard title and keep destroying people as the IC /US Champ for like 6 monyhs to a year then have him go after the WWE title this could work if done right

He will be nothing more then a US/IC champion. Cesaro is more over so let Ryback squash The Miz.

@Nathan...That is what they are doing. He is their version of Goldberg. And they are doing it way too quickly. It confuses me too cause not only are they still putting him into squash matches as he was in on Raw against Epico and his tag team partner but they are also pushing him onto Punk alread...

Okay...maybe I must have misunderstood what u were saying. MY bad. Well he really needs to take the ladder steps. Maybe go for the US title first and then the IC title and then the WWE title. But yeah, they are pushing him too fast and too soon

I dont think he needs to hold both midcard titles he just needs to hold one for a long reign and dominate while he has the title against quality opponents

@ryan Guess you didn't read it all of it..."putting him on the back burner by having him work his way up properly"..

Before everything you just listed, he was actually worked up to proper status BEFORE gaining the belt again. If he had done this in the first place, his 1st run wouldn't have been mean...

And like Ronnie, that's my problem. Ryback being an option against punk already is ridiculous!

I never compared ryback to the rock, I clearly stated that I don't want him to have the title or face the rock
