Ryback is joined on today’s show by his co-host, Phoenix Marie.
Ryback mentions that he’s still dealing with some issues with his ankle, stemming from his career in WWE. He has taken a couple months off from wrestling but he’s booked heavily again in March and April, so he hopes to have his ankle taken care of by then. He’s been in discussion with WWE, and although he can’t go into detail right now, he ensures that the doctor who performed the initial procedure on his ankle will be held accountable.
Ryback mentions that he saw The Rock’s new movie, Jumanji, recently. He informs that the movie has a lot more comedy in it than he anticipated, but he thought it was very good overall. He particularly enjoyed The Rock’s performance in the movie, and he recommends that everyone go and check it out.
A listener writes into the show and asks Ryback if he thinks he’ll ever consider wrestling for NJPW at some point in the future. Ryback thinks that’s a possibility for sure. He points out that he still enjoys wrestling but he knows there’s more to life than fake fighting. He was pretty banged up when he left WWE and it has taken some time for him to get his body healthy, but once he heals up he’s open to working in Japan.
