Zack Ryder Discusses His Ryder Revolution, Facing Ziggler at TLC & More

– WWE Superstar Zack Ryder recently spoke with Here are some highlights:

Changing his own position in WWE:
“Earlier this year, probably January or so, I looked myself in the mirror and said this career is not where I want it to be. I had nothing to lose; I was on a path to get released. What were they going to do? Fire me? Not put me on TV? I wasn’t on TV anyway. My life was going to change one way or the other. I knew I was either going to get fired or get noticed. I got noticed.”

Facing Dolph Ziggler at TLC:
“If I won the United States Championship Sunday, it would be a perfect end to a storybook, roller coaster year. Starting from nothing and working my way up to being United States Champion, I don’t think it gets better than that.”

His Broski character:
“Ninety-nine percent of that character is me. It is me — I’m a big kid living the dream, listening to boy band music, fist pumpin’ in the club, spiking my hair.”

    @Sammo: People pretend it’s not significant but you’re right, mainly among young people music choice basically defines who you hang out with. Kinda lame but ah well.

    In any case, good for Ryder and while I don’t see him winning, I hope WWE finds a way to get him over more and not just throw him back down into the pit of irrelevance.

    Dolph ziggler is fan of Britney spears, and he gets a lot of pie, not more than the rock

  • Sammo

    Where I come from, what music you listen to – as well as any other cultural tastes – play a hugely significant role in highlighting who you are and your peer groups.

    If that’s not the case where you come from, then fair enough.

    who cares if he listens to boy bands he isn’t alienating a thing.
    His DAMN theme song sounds alot like a boy band track to me.

  • Sammo

    If I were Ryder, I’d keep quiet about the “listening to boy bands” thing if he doesn’t want to risk alienating his male fans!
