"Let it all hang out. If there was ever a time not to hold anything back, it is in this match."
"We haven’t seen Ryback pushed past the five-minute mark. Five minutes would be a long Ryback match … [Punk] had a day off and spent it running a marathon; that is a guy who is in prime condition. CM Punk [is] a master of mind games and it could just very well be that he would relish the opportunity to have a very tired Ryback on his hands."
"There’s a distinct size and strength advantage that Ryback possesses, so you almost look at Punk as if he’s the underdog, even though he’s the WWE Champion. Ryback has his work cut out for him. He has to make the statement and he has to do it in the course of a victory, and neither one of those is easy to accomplish. I think a huge win over Ryback would be even bigger than a victory over John Cena, because John Cena, as great as he is, has been defeated. It’s not only that Ryback hasn’t been defeated, but also that he hasn’t been touched. A win against Ryback would go a long way toward cementing Punk’s legacy."
