The Miz Earns #1 In the Royal Rumble, WWE’s Injury Update on Zack Ryder

– After losing to R-Truth on last night’s RAW Supershow, The Miz earned the #1 spot in this Sunday’s 30-man Royal Rumble main event.

– As seen on last night’s RAW Supershow, Kane chokeslammed Zack Ryder through the stage and the former United States Champion was taken away in an ambulance.

WWE is going with the storyline that Ryder has suffered a broken back.

There was talk a few weeks back of keeping Ryder off TV for a few weeks and this appears to be his temporary exit from the storylines.

    Maybe Ryder will come back as a heel ater Mania. Maybe he’ll be a more serious character.

    Call me crazy but I think the Miz is going to win the Royal Rumble

  • Justin Sane

    People want to cheer on ryder when he’s the little guy and underdog. Wwe have people what they wanted to see now they have to take it away so people will continue wanting to see him. I think a heel turn for Ryder would be great, if he turns on cena he would get huge support from the men in the crowd who don’t like cena.

    I’m neither here no there with Ryder – but I don’t think you can blame him for how it’s turned out. WWE never made him look convincing during his push and at that time he was fighting against time as to when the crowd reactions would slow up.

    Those lucky wins did nothing to help him, and disastrous storylines like being Teddy Long’s assistant and John Cenas best friend (which then endured him to the kids).. he was no longer ”cool” to support, but another victim of WWE creative.

    I do like Zack Ryder. I aint going to call him a great wrestler cos at the moment he isn’t. He’s a good wrestler and his gimmick needs tweeking but to me this screems of an old school build up.

    I reckon 12 months and he is WWE champ, but he will be a deserved and talented WWE champ. I feel he just needs some time to develop and WWE not to axe him in a couple of months because they don’t have an instant result.

    I wouldn’t say this is the end of him. More of a re package. Like others have said, his reaction is getting is significantly less than what it used to be. I think they will wait until they have a good feud and developed character for him.

    I did. And I think its because WWE wouldn’t use him, so of course, we wanted them too. Then WWE used him and everyone was like, damn, this dude really isn’t that great. He’s ok in the ring and his gimmick is horrible, plus, he’s a horrible actor and completely unconvincing. I’d say this is the end of the Ryder Revolution.

    I like Zack Ryder cause of how the crowd ‘used’ to react to him, but anyone notice the lower reactions now?

  • you mean keep him off tv for good. (:

  • Pissed Off Fan =(

    I hope Kane’s in the Rumble & goes nuts eliminating people like 2001
