When Ryback took John Cena’s place against CM Punk at Hell in a Cell 2012, it was a sign that he was on the path to the top of WWE.
Here we are, two months later, and Ryback still has some work to do in order to be the top babyface of the company.
While he began a hot streak, he has lost a number of pay-per-views recently, including the 2013 Royal Rumble match.
If Ryback is going to reach that level of success, he needs to begin winning again. Not only that, but he needs to defeat some main-event-level Superstars on his way to the top.
With that said, here are five wrestlers Ryback must defeat on his journey to being the top babyface of WWE.
