WWE’s essential business status brought some to question what happened behind closed doors. The company is now operating at full speed, even after the recent widespread releases.
During Conversation with the Big Guy, Ryback discussed WWE’s plan to run with business as usual during this time. He said that McMahon is playing a “dangerous game.” The problem that Vince McMahon has is that “he’s been bad for a long time.”
“This is the game that Vince…this is what I was saying it’s a very very dangerous game. The reason why Vince is getting criticism on this? When you look it at from the business aspect of it? Everything they were doing for me is business as normal. The problem that a lot of people have is? We know that Vince has been very bad for a long time, and he’s mistreated wrestlers for far too long.”
“He doesn’t have anyone’s back, that’s the problem that these fans…they can’t necessarily put that into words. But I can and that’s what’s happening. I feel like, with a good sense of the way he’s done business for too long, and that not even given guys a few months to wait it out? It’s cut losses right away. It’s a really really unfortunate thing. From a business aspect? I understand it, but I think knowing what we know about him [McMahon], you would like to see a sign of something that shows he has a soul inside of him. Again when you’re at that level though? He’s cutthroat. It is what it is.”
We previously reported that WWE is taking a lot of precautions backstage, but they are still running as usual. Hopefully, all of those safety measures will keep everyone safe who works for WWE during this unpredictable time.
If you ask Ryback, WWE might need to consider a different course of action right now.
