Vince Russo’s The Brand Recap – Goldberg Still A Draw, Jeff Jarrett’s TNA Return, Rousey Losing WWE Appeal, More!
Russo is joined on today’s show by Glen Gilberti (Disco Inferno).
Russo informs that he recently interviewed Ryback for an upcoming episode of this show. He says Ryback was not bitter about his exit from WWE whatsoever, but offered some details regarding the last few months he spent with the promotion.
Ryback informed that he had an ankle injury that kept him out of action for a while. He fully planned on returning from this injury but WWE began to use this injury as an ‘out’ in order to release him from his contract. WWE started to insinuate that their doctors weren’t going to clear Ryback for a return and he was forced to get lawyers involved.
Ryback felt that after the lawyers got involved and proved that he could not be released from his contract, any potential success he could have had in the company was diminished. He believes the whole situation gave Vince McMahon the motivation to ‘play with him’ creatively, and his time with the company was limited after this.
Russo’s interview with Ryback will air in the coming days.
