Seven months ago, Ryback wasn't even on the WWE's main roster.
Today, he's one of the most talked about wrestlers around and, in all likelihood, figures to play a huge role in both the short- and long-term futures of the WWE.
Ryback has ascended to the top of the company about as quickly as anyone in recent memory, but he's yet to compete on the grand stage known as WrestleMania.
That figures to change in 2013, however, when "Big Hungry" will most likely end up participating in one of the marquee matches for the WWE's biggest pay-per-view of the year.
But just who will he face?
Although it'll be a while until we find out, that won't stop me from speculating. Here are seven possible WrestleMania 29 scenarios, or opponents, for the WWE's resident monster, Ryback.
