- As noted yesterday, Arda Ocal of the Score Television Network and the Baltimore Sun recently spoke with current WWE Champion CM Punk. During the interview, Punk was asked about his Hell in a Cell opponent Ryback and whether he's suprised to face him.

"I'm glad actually," Punk admitted. "I think you take a look at Ryback and he's your typical WWE wrestler. He's what Vince McMahon likes. But conversely, my choice was John Cena or Ryback; Cena's had shot after shot after shot. To me, the 'change' I talked about a year and a half ago was about new people stepping up and getting shots, so I'm excited. Its something new, its something different and I can sink my teeth into it."
