Conversation With The Big Guy Recap – Wrestlemania Season, Best & Worst Paydays in WWE, Working w/ Mark Henry, More!
Ryback says that he built up a reputation of hurting people in WWE because very early on, they began to use the legitimate injuries of some performers as a storyline angle where they blamed Ryback for the injuries. Although he had nothing to do with the injuries, WWE thought it would help build his destructive character. Ryback thinks that was a silly idea because he was a babyface, and legitimately hurting people night after night – some who the fans really loved – was not a good way to get over.
Ryback shares some of his thoughts on the Cruiserweight division. He says the guys are all really talented, but they have thrown out the concept of selling. If they sold a little bit more, they would get much larger reactions for some of their bigger high-flying moves. Ryback believes that wrestling psychology is a very important thing, and there needs to be a way to bridge old school psychology & new school psychology.
He believes that a lot of the cruiserweights are rushing during their matches on RAW because they have a limited amount of time to work their match, and both talents want to get all their stuff in. Ryback urges the talents to relax and not to worry about getting all their stuff into every single match. They need to save some of their spots for bigger matches when they have the time to tell a proper story.
