RybackDetails on CM Punk's Drawing Power

According to The Wrestling Observer, the lower buy rate for WWE's 2012 TLC PPV, which came it at around 170,000 buys based on preliminary data, might be a positive sign for CM Punk and his drawing power.

The 2012 Hell in a Cell PPV, which featured Punk vs. Ryback in the main event drew a surprisingly strong amount of buys considering John Cena didn't appear on the show, so the low buy rate for TLC could be a good sign for CM Punk considering he didn't wrestle on that card.

Vince Nixes Ryback Nickname

During a recent interview with The Phoenix New Times, Ryback revealed that he came up with the nickname "Big Hungry" but Vince McMahon ultimately nixed the name.
