Ryback is not a WWE Superstar after leaving the company in 2016. However, he still cares about what goes on in the company. The former IC Champion still has several friends who are employed by WWE that he cares a lot about. So he wants the company to treat their Superstars better.
We previously reported that Ryback had a few things to say about WWE’s practices of intimidating their Superstars. He also revealed a threatening legal letter that the company sent to him that demanded his name and social media accounts. Today he is suggesting a boycott.
When one fan asked The Big Guy why WWE can’t be like other sporting organizations and treat their former Superstars better, he had an interesting response on whether the company would learn a lesson.
They won’t, but they will pretend to if we keep raising concerns and involve the @USA_Network @FOXTV and other major @wwe sponsors. The best thing to do is boycott the shows and not watch on tv. If everyone did this for a month they would feel it where it counts.
We will have to wait and see if this tactic works. Judging by the way the ratings are turning out from week to week it seems like the company might have fewer viewers all the time. They might eventually pull off a virtual ban simply by losing fan interest with no organization needed.
Still, if you would like to try and see some results WWE does have sponsors who all have contact information. Contacting the company regarding Lars Sullivan seemed to garner a response.
