Ryback vs CM Punk to headline first RAW of 2013

The first RAW of 2013 will feature a big main event for the WWE title as CM Punk defends his gold against number one contender Ryback.

The match was announced during the special live Smackdown yesterday on USA Network and a stipulation to the match between the two was added when WWE taped next week’s Christmas Eve RAW right after Smackdown ended.

Ryback and Punk had to wrestle in the main event of the TLC pay-per-view but CM Punk’s immediate knee surgery prevented the match from happening. The first RAW of 2013 will be held on January 7 at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa, Florida.
