Ryback comments on the rumoured return of Hulk Hogan to WWE. He says it only makes sense for Hogan to return to WWE in some capacity at some point in the future. Buck points out that there have been rumours of Hogan joining the Bullet Club and if he was ROH right now, he’d be throwing money at Hogan. It would be expensive, but he think’s this would be a good risk for ROH to take in an attempt to increase their United States presence. Ryback says that Hogan is a nice, down to earth guy.
Ryback says that the ‘This is Your Life’ segment from last week’s RAW certainly didn’t accomplish what WWE had hoped it would. He says that there are always a lot of ‘marks’ at television tapings, where as house show audiences have more kids in attendance. He believes the live audience’s reaction on RAW last week is what really killed the segment. He can’t really criticize Alexa Bliss for her role in the segment, but maybe she could have gone off script and attacked the crowd a bit more.
He thinks it’s a bit strange that Nia Jax tweeted out her frustrations towards WWE creative last week. He says that she’s brand new to the main roster, and it’s surprising to see her lashing out at creative this early. He believes she has potential and he can understand her frustrations, but it’s too early for her to react like this. He also points out that her character can’t be put in every situation and she needs to be protected. Nothing good ever comes from those types of comments.
Ryback comments on the finish of the Dolph Ziggler/ A.J. Styles match from last week’s Smackdown Live. Some people have reported that the finish was botched, and Dave Meltzer blamed this on Ziggler rolling Styles up too hard. Ryback think’s that’s hilarious, because if Styles was supposed to put his foot on the rope and didn’t, that’s his fault. Either way, it’s no big deal because Ziggler got a much needed win.
