Even though he is still as green as a John Deere tractor, we could end up seeing Ryback walk out as WWE champion after Survivor Series.
Having Ryback as champion might upset some of the wrestling purists out there who think he is not ready, but with the way the crowd has responded to him lately, it would certainly make a lot of people happy.
Ryback is being built up into a monster, and a great way to keep that momentum would be to give him the title.
This does not mean he has to be the one to face The Rock at the Rumble. He could easily drop it back to Punk at TLC.
If Ryback wins, then it would make him a much bigger name right away, but it would also expose his lack of experience because the champion is expected to be the best.
When people compare Ryback to other quick ascensions like Brock Lesnar and Sheamus, they forget one important fact: Those guys were legitimate talents when they won the title despite still being new to the company.
Lesnar was a star athlete before WWE ever got their hands on him, and Sheamus was an experienced wrestler in Europe before making it here.
Ryback is not new to the ring by any means, but he is still wet behind the ears compared to some of the other guys who have climbed the ladder just as fast.
