A listener writes into the show and asks Ryback what he would have changed about his year in WWE in 2012. He says he wouldn’t change much, but when he was first elevated to the main event scene he doesn’t think he should have lost to CM Punk. He doesn’t think he should have been put in that position given the momentum he had, and continued to have for several months after that loss. He thought they had lightning in a bottle, and WWE decided to pull off the cap and let it out.
Another listener writes into the show and asks Ryback if he thinks there’s a disconnect between what WWE fans want from the product, and what WWE needs to do as a business to make money. Ryback points out that WWE can’t please everyone, and people need to enjoy it for what it is. There’s no need to bitch about the winners of fake fights.
He goes on to say that WWE knows what they’re doing. Every time a certain performer gets really hot or really cold, it’s all part of WWE’s plan. If you’re overanalyzing this product and complaining about the results, your life probably isn’t where it needs to be.
Ryback comments on the fact that Hornswoggle was apparently never officially eliminated from the Greatest Royal Rumble match. He says he would pay to see Hornswoggle versus Braun Strowman. He adds that he loves Hornswoggle, and he was happy to see him make a return to WWE in that match.
