Thanks for the comments, people.
I really want Ziggler to be World Champ, but mainly because he seems to have worked his ass off. In terms of being a great champion for TV, I'll agree that he's not good enough. It was funny that on Smackdown he took the mic away from Vickie Guerrero and said that he could speak for himself.
But in that same segment, I really loved Miz's enthusiasm! It felt like a promo of the old days where I could get behind what he was saying, and he seemed so passionate about it, as well as angry. Cena does it all the time when he's made out to be the underdog, but because of that it is so shit, and I just always feel like he's acting - it's garbage.
Going back to Ryback at the end of Raw last week - apparently there's no real plan for him to face CM Punk. It was apparently a last minute thing that they just threw in; it wasn't even shown on the titantron in the arena.
Word is that if Cena is not ready to go for HIAC, then they're going to try and work something with Ryback and Punk. They've just planted the seeds if they need anything out of it.
