Conversation with the Big Guy Recap – Importance of Medical Insurance, Strowman Taking Strides, 205 Live Getting Cut? More!

Ryback discusses his infamous hospital promo. He says that people loved that promo and he informs that he legitimately passed out at the end of that promo. It was a one and done shoot, because he was so drugged up on medication and had trouble staying awake.

Ryback comments on the passing on Matt ‘Rosey’ Anoa’i at the young age of 47. He was very saddened by the news and he feels very bad for Rosey’s extended family and his younger brother, Roman Reigns. He met Rosey backstage in WWE a few times, and he was just as pleasurable in real life as his Rosey character was on television.

Ryback feels that WWE has left Smackdown Live severely depleted of talent after the recent Superstar Shakeup. He says that while Smackdown has always been important, RAW is WWE’s priority and he doubts that will ever change.

Buck agrees and says that although Smackdown Live has been the better show, it almost feels as if Smackdown Live is the training ground to build new Superstars. Performers such as The Miz and Baron Corbin have taken big strides on Smackdown, but their development seems based around the goal of eventually moving them to RAW at some point.
