Ryback vs Dolph Ziggler booked for WWE Main Event on Oct. 24

The Ryback will get a shot at working with a great wrestler before he takes on CM Punk at Hell in a Cell this coming Sunday night.


Before The Ryback heads to Atlanta, Georgia, to take on CM Punk for the WWE championship in the main event of Hell in a Cell, he'll get the chance to work with one of the best wrestlers on the roster, Dolph Ziggler.

The two are set to wrestle on tomorrow night's (Oct. 24, 2012) episode of Main Event on Ion Television.

This is good booking if only because Ziggler can take the loss without it affecting his standing while Ryback badly needs to get more experience against top level guys before he takes on Punk this weekend.

It's interesting because Main Event matches typically run long, so this could be getting plenty of time. Ziggler is going to have to do some carrying here but he's used to being entirely unselfish inside the ring, even to his own detriment, according to Booker T. That will serve him well here, though, because his job in this match is to make Ryback look like a million bucks.

No better man for the job.
