Ryback Tells Another Story About Vince McMahon Lying to Him, Convincing Him to Drop Lawsuit Against Doctor

Ryback

Former WWE Superstar Ryback has released another episode of his podcast Conversation With The Big Guy, in which the former Intercontinental champ dishes on his time with the company. You can check out some highlights here:

On being lied to by Vince McMahon again:

[Vince McMahon] sees me, this was before my third surgery, he comes up to me and we had a nice little lengthy discussion and he goes, ‘I’ll never give up on you.’ He goes, ‘we’re going to get through this together.’ He goes, ‘I don’t have anybody like you. You’re going to make me a lot of money.’ He goes, ‘you know how to get over,’ and he goes, ‘that’s something that not everybody knows.’ And he goes, ‘I’m going to allow you to make me a lot of money and I’m never going to give up on you,’ were his exact words. And then, they gave up on me.”

On being convinced to drop a lawsuit:

“I get a phone call from [former WWE Vice President of Talent Relations] Jane Geddes… and she tells me, ‘Ryan, this phone call is off the record’ and I go, ‘okay’ and she goes, ‘do you want your standing in this company to remain good? Do you want your push to continue?’ was essentially what she told me. And I said, ‘yes, of course, why wouldn’t it?’ She goes, ‘we need you to drop the lawsuit against Dr. Herscovici immediately.’ And so, this was a multimillion dollar lawsuit, not against the WWE. It was against the doctor who did this surgery to me that caused all this damage that was an open and shut case from everything I was told from my team of attorneys… you have to remember, so she essentially just threatened me with my push and everything going on, getting the chance to live my dream, money, finally, at this point, I’m making really good money now and everything, so they waited till just the right time.”

  • Mike DiBattista

    He thinks he’s like Punk giving all this insight and wrong doings inside the WWE..only thing that escapes him is about 98% of the popularity Punk had, and therefore no one gives 2 “Big Guy Turds” what comes out of his mouth.

    Will the crying from this guy never stop? Only person lying here is probably this tool.

    I’m pretty sure he was just being rick roll’d by Vince.

    I’m never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down.
