The First WWE Monday Night RAW of 2013 is Now Scheduled To Feature #TLC for the WWE Championship ... and the Return of The Rock!
Monday, December 24 was Christmas Eve 2012. It was also day number #400 in terms of CM Punk being the reigning defending WWE Champion. And yet, for the champ and our very own Hustler De Tuti Hustlers Paul Heyman, it was not a good day. Not only did they find out that on the very 1st RAW of 2013, The Rock returns to RAW, but their interview was once again interrupted by Ryback!
Ryback wasn't done with his challenge to the longest reigning champion of the modern era, and the confrontation on Smackdown only set the stage for what happened on the Christmas Eve edition of RAW!
According to WWE.com:
WWE Champion CM Punk came to Raw to criticize Ryback for injuring his knee and forcing him to undergo painful rehab. After Punk lamented at the fact there was no punishment for Ryback injuring the WWE Champion, Paul Heyman claimed there is a conspiracy to take the WWE Championship away from Punk. Heyman specifically pointed out how Ryback has received two title opportunities with Punk, and on both occasions, Ryback has failed to win.
Hearing enough from Punk and Heyman, an angry Ryback charged into the arena. Uneasy with the potential for physical conflict, Heyman pointed out that Punk is not medically cleared to compete and threatened to sue Ryback for assault if he laid a finger on Punk. Seething for a chance to get at Punk, Ryback challenged Punk to a Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match on the Jan. 7, 2013, edition of Raw!
