WWE feel it will be easier to let Ryback’s contract run down rather than officially release him, and as such, he is not expected to work for the company again. The decision was actually taken before the recent Payback pay-per-view where Ryback was defeated by Kalisto in a US Championship match on the kick-off show.
It’s no secret Ryback and WWE were at loggerheads on money, and alledgedly ‘The Big Guy’ wanted his hotel and road expenses covered, as well as a guarantee that if he were ever to be released from his contract, he would receive severance for the remainder of his deal.
Speaking of releases, Cameron’s tweet in support of Ryback’s “equal pay” blog was said to be the nail in the coffin for her and that it was a major influencer behind her release last Friday. Although she had removed the tweet pretty promptly after posting, the damage had already been done.
