Conversation With the Big Guy Recap w/ Darren Young – Coming Out As A WWE Superstar, Debuting With NEXUS, Working With Bob Backlund, More!
Ryback opens today’s show by discussing his thoughts on using steroids. He informs that he used them from age 20-24 because he looked up to certain people in the business who he knew used them. He stopped using them and had all his success without any performance enhancing drugs. He notes that he doesn’t want to use them because he wouldn’t want any children to look up to him and take steroids solely because he was taking them.
Ryback welcomes former WWE superstar, Darren Young to the show.
Young informs that he likes to consider himself a WWE “veteran”, not a “former” WWE wrestler. He points out that guys like him and Ryback sacrificed their bodies for a lot of years and he doesn’t like using the term “former”.
Ryback says he doesn’t feel like his wrestling career is anywhere close to being done at this point, especially after dealing with some injuries. Young agrees, saying he’s only 34 years old and the business is still fun to him, so he feels like he still has a lot left in the tank.
Young informs that he didn’t leave WWE on bad terms. He almost felt like his release was coming and he wasn’t mad at all. He points out that a lot of people return to the company after some time and WWE has a revolving door, so he doesn’t rule out a WWE return at some point in the future. He notes that WWE didn’t give him a reason why he was released.
