A listener writes into the show and asks Ryback for his opinion on Dave Meltzer. He says he doesn’t know anything about Meltzer other than the fact that he’s never had a match. He thinks it’s funny that grown men are spending hours each day getting mad about the fact that a fake fight didn’t end the way they thought it should. Ryback has never met Meltzer and he’s sure he’s a great guy, but he doesn’t understand the over-analyzation of professional wrestling.
Ryback informs that he still has a free subscription to the WWE Network that hasn’t been cancelled since he left the company. He points out that WWE has been stuck around 1.5 million subscribers for a long time now, and he thinks their flawed system is a big reason for this. WWE promotes a free month for every new subscriber, but the same person can continue to create new emails and sign up with these new emails month after month in order to continue getting the Network for free.
He thought last Sunday’s TLC PPV was an okay show, and he credits WWE for going all out in order to save this show for their fans. The initial card was torn apart by a Meningitis outbreak and this resulted in Kurt Angle’s return to a WWE ring for the first time in 11 years. He thought Angle did a great job and he thought the match was put together in a way that protected Angle, which was good.
Ryback can’t believe that some fans were actually upset that Angle made his entrance through the fans with Rollins and Ambrose wearing a vest. He says that nobody hates wrestling as much as wrestling fans, and this was another example of that. He thought A.J. Styles and Finn Balor put together a great match, and much like Angle, Ryback credits Styles for stepping up and helping to save this show.
