Ryback recalls his time working in WWE’s old developmental territory, OVW. He says that some fans thought they were making millions of dollars at that time when in reality, they were only making $500-750 a week. This was actually a raise for some performers, because the initial pay was only $300 a week which was terrible.
He mentions that during this time there was a crazy wrestling fan who knew where he lived and what type of vehicle he drove, and called and filed a fake claim with Ryback’s auto insurance company. Ryback’s insurance paid off the fan and his insurance became much more expensive for a long time after. Years later Aaron Stevens (Damien Sandow) admitted to being the one who actually hit the fan’s car and apologized to Ryback. He accepted the apology but adds that it was really a scumbag thing to do.
A listener writes into the show and asks Ryback who he’d like to wrestle in WWE if he were to ever go back. He says his opponent would have to be Triple H, and he’d love to have a long match with him. There’s a personal element to a potential bout between them and he thinks it would be a huge match. He says he doesn’t even care about who emerges victorious in the match; that part of it doesn’t matter to him.
