He thinks it’s smart of WWE to book Triple H against Jinder Mahal for their upcoming tour of India. He points out that they recently had to cancel one of the shows over there due to low ticket sales, and he’s sure they brought Triple H onto the tour to boost ticket sales.
Apparently ticket prices for those shows were very high, and that might have played a role in the low sales. He points out that the crowds in India are very passionate, and he hopes that WWE lowers the ticket prices in order to allow those fans to attend the shows.
Ryback comments on the rumours that Eric Bischoff is returning to the wrestling business, taking over control of an indie promotion. He points out that owning a wrestling company hasn’t often proved financially viable, but if anyone is able to pull it off, it’d be Bischoff. However, the last time Bischoff ran a wrestling company he had Ted Turner’s chequebook to work with; that won’t be the case this time.
Ryback is happy for Jack Swagger, who signed a contract with Bellator MMA last week. He points out that Swagger is a terrific wrestler, but that’s only one aspect of MMA. He’s sure that Swagger will embrace this opportunity and will put the work in to become an all-around mixed martial artist, and he wishes him the best of luck.
That sums up this week’s episode of Conversation with the Big Guy. You can listen to the show yourself anytime here, and I’ll catch ya next week for another recap!
