Ryback opens today’s show by talking about Alexa Bliss. Bliss spoke out against her critics this past week, noting that she can wrestle great matches if she needs to but she chooses not to right now. Ryback notes that so many of these critics have never wrestled a match in their life. Bliss’ job is to get heat and to make people hate her, so she’s doing her job perfectly in Ryback’s opinion.
He adds that this portion of WWE’s fanbase almost doesn’t know how to be fans. If you don’t execute flips and dives then this portion of the fanbase accuses you of not being able to work or wrestle, when in reality that has nothing to do with someone’s ability to wrestle.
Ryback talks about the video advertisement he produced and released this past week for his supplement line. Ryback was shown clotheslining an overweight woman into a pool, and when the woman emerged from the pool she was significantly smaller. He points out that this advertisement was just for fun and he did it to get people watching and laughing while also promoting his product. He notes that if people don’t understand that then that’s just too bad.
Ryback talks about the idea of WWE introducing Women’s Tag Titles. He points out that giving the women the platform to have the same level of success as the men is great, so he doesn’t have any issue with there being more Women’s Titles. However, he notes that there are less women on the roster than men, so he wouldn’t be surprised to see WWE bolster their Women’s division with more competitors in the years to come.
