Punk vs Ryback TLC match headlines tonight’s RAW, plus the return of The Rock


WWE will present it’s first RAW of 2013 tonight with a three hour broadcast headlined by a TLC match between the current WWE champion CM Punk and Ryback.

The main event was supposed to headline the TLC pay-per-view last month however emergency knee surgery prevented Punk – who is over 400 consecutive days as champion – to be part of the show. Ryback’s only defeat so far has come at the hands of CM Punk.

Plus, the one and only The Rock will return to WWE television for the first time since July’s RAW 1000 celebration. The Rock will be appearing frequently on WWE TV in the next quarter as he goes for the gold at the Royal Rumble and then his involvement at the Elimination Chamber and WrestleMania pay-per-views.
