Conversation with the Big Guy Recap – Working with EC3, WrestleMania Axxess Thoughts, Stories from WWE Promo Class, More!
Ryback is joined on today’s show by his co-host Pat Buck.
Ryback informs that he recently worked an independent show with Impact Wrestling’s EC3. He was excited to arrive at the show and be told that he would be working with EC3 because they had worked together in the past, and EC3 is such a good worker that working a match with him is basically like having the night off.
During the match they took the action to the outside of the ring. One young fan was visibly excited about the action he was seeing in front of him, so Ryback took a weary EC3 over towards the young fan and told him to chop EC3. Rather than chop him, the young fan kicked EC3 right between the legs and Ryback couldn’t restrain himself from laughing.
Ryback recently wrestled Colt Cabana as well, and they had a good match in front of a great crowd of over 700 people. He says that it was a profitable show, but there were rumours circulating around the backstage area that the show would have sold out if Ryback and Cabana were booked and advertised as the main event.
Ryback says that he appears to be the topic of a lot of negative articles online as of late. One in particular named him as the #1 independent wrestling failure while listing Cody Rhodes as the # 1 success. The article mentioned that Ryback’s independent career has been a failure because he has yet to work for high profile indie promotions such as PWG or ROH.
