Conversation with the Big Guy Recap – Thoughts on The Shield’s Reunion, Increasing Number of PPVs, Would Ryback Fight in UFC? More!
Ryback is joined on today’s show by his co-host Phoenix Marie.
A listener calls into the show and asks Ryback how much his wrestling gear costs. He says the total cost for his singlets were around $400-500 which included shipping, and his boots would cost around $1,000. If he got his boots airbrushed they would cost anywhere between $1,200-1,400.
Another listener calls into the show and asks Ryback what the scariest part of his job is. He says the scariest part about being a professional wrestler in his opinion is the possibility of breaking your neck. He says that all types of piledrivers should be banned from all performers with a few exceptions such as The Undertaker or Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler.
In his opinion, the piledriver is a move where the rewards simply don’t outweigh the risks. He recalls one independent performer who broke his neck and has been paralyzed ever since. This performer has spent a lot of time in the hospital and we’ll never hear about him in the wrestling business again, and that’s very unfortunate. Ryback thinks it’s far safer and easier to just replace the piledriver with another move.
