Ryback talks not getting big moments from WWE, If he’d sign with NJPW or TNA, More


Former WWE Superstar Ryback was recently interviewed by the Buzzards Wrestling Podcast. You can check out highlights from the interview here:

On not getting big moments from WWE:

“That was something, they never gave me the big moments. It was like the Buffalo Bills losing the Super Bowl one two three four times, and then eventually you give up cheering for them because you know they’re going to lose. It’s the same formula. They just kept knocking me down peg after peg after peg after peg. It took years to do it, and then when they — it was hard to see that going on because I know that psychology of how — That’s why I left on my own because now I can control everything and start over but it’s really worth it. Now I have a fighting chance.”

On if he is interested in TNA:

“I’m not gonna say that I’m not interested, it’s just one of those — I’m enjoying not having any contracts right now. And whenever they — If I was just solely wrestling and not — and didn’t have the motivational book, the podcast, and the supplement line coming out, then it would be something that I’d heavily consider. That or New Japan for something more long term, but these other things are things that I got going on that take up a lot of my time and things that I’m very hands on with. Especially the supplement line, that’s very important to me so the wrestling — everything is great in the independents cause I’m booked through April. We’re going into May in bookings now, every weekend, and financially it’s the same if not better than WWE. And that’s working for less days a week so I have no reason right now to. But don’t ever say never, it’d have to be the right situation.”

    Lol cryback just like all the other big buff guys vice chooses to try and lead the company all suck because a. They can’t wrestle and b. Their mic skill is horrible…..look at bootista horrible, reigns horrible, this new strowman guy will fail too. Khali failed….cena was the only one to make it….. the smaller more athletic guys are the best wrestlers and mic talkers but Vincent just miss uses them jeez…. that old man loves big buff gay men

    I don’t like to say people are “whining” because it is dismissive, but this guy really needs to get over himself. Talk about delusions of grandeur.

    the guy was given multiple pushes, and beyond his “feed me more” chants, only a small portion of fans bought into him.

    Maybe when he stops smoking whatever he is. 😛

    They gave up on you because nobody cared lol. When is he going to realize that he can’t wrestle and he wasn’t a big draw?!
