Why Ryback Needs to Turn Face Again

Why Ryback Needs to Turn Face Again

Published by | Blog views: 3932
It wasn't that long ago when Ryback was pretty much on the top of the world in the WWE. He looked like he was going to be the next big thing in the WWE, and he also looked like he could eventually be John Cena's replacement. However, a lot has changed since then.

April 8th, 2013. I was there. When I saw Ryback pick up John Cena on his shoulders and hit him with Shell Shocked, it looked like Ryback was going to be destined for great things in the coming months, possibly entering a feud with the Biggest Superstar in the company, John Cena. I thought I was experiencing the start of something great. I said to myself, what could go possibly wrong with this?

There's only one answer to that now: A lot. Ryback went from being at the top of his game and main-eventing shows, to being left off PPVs and being forgotten. At this point, I do not even think Paul Heyman can save heel Ryback at it his current state. And when Paul Heyman can't really help you get over as a heel, that's saying something.

I think that Ryback is a tremendous wrestler for his size and has improved a lot over time. I dont feel that Ryback should be wasted as heel, when he's got guys like Randy Orton, The Shield, Alberto Del Rio, etc. ahead of him in the pecking order. With John Cena, Sheamus, and possibly Rob Van Dam out of action over the course the next few months or so, I believe this is the right time for "The Big Guy" to go back to being "Big Hungry".

While many of you aren't a fan of "FEED ME MORE!", you should be able to admit this whole heel thing isn't working out for him. Turning face would be a step in the right direction for both Ryback and the WWE. WWE needs to realize stars like CM Punk and John Cena aren't going to be wrestling forever. They start making heirs to the top guy throne, and toss them out of contention before their reigns as WWE Kings even get started (examples: Ryback, Kofi Kingston, and in a way, Dolph Ziggler). Turning Ryback face again, would not only help Ryback in the long term, it will help the WWE in the long term. And to quote Triple H, "It's what's best for business."

Thank You for the like and comment. I definitely see Ryback turning face in the near future, but there has been some rumblings as to keeping Ryback as a heel. I just feel that Ryback is better as a face and I'm glad you agree with me on that.

I think if Ryback remains a heel for a bit longer, it would cause significant damage to Ryback's character and "reputation" as a whole.

I would love to see WWE do Lesnar vs. Ryback. With Ryback as the face of course.

Hopefully this does happen. Ryback was and always will be better as a face. No questions about it. Bring back the Feed Me More Chants and add Ryback Rules into it which is also better. I see Ryback becoming World Heavyweight Champion and then eventually WWE Champion. Plus IMO his chants were just as...
