Originally written November 28, 2012 on Ring Side News:
- WWE has contemplated building towards a Ryback vs. Big Show match at WrestleMania 29 on April 7, 2013 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. It is based on the idea of Ryback having a "WrestleMania moment" by hoisting Show onto his shoulders and marching around. - CM Punk and Paul Heyman are featured on the cover of The Wrestler. - Ring of Honor wrestler Mike Bennett met with WWE officials last week. Additional details have not been disclosed. In August, "The Prodigy" remarked on whether he would be interested in joining the promotion if an offer came along: "Well, I'll give you the political answer right now and say never-say-never. I'd be absolutely lying to you if I said I didn't become a wrestler to be at WrestleMania and headline WrestleMania, which is what 99% of all guys want to do if they're in wrestling. They want to make the big bucks and be on the main stage. But for me, right now, I'm 100% happy in Ring of Honor. I mean, I feel like I'm building a company. Its been around since 2002, its been building since then, but I feel now with the Sinclair network behind it we really are truly building a company. Is WWE ever an option? Like I said, I'd be lying if I said wouldn't want to go there, but right now Ring of Honor is where I like to be."
