Ryback brought a lot of heat on himself when he declared that pro wrestling titles are just props. Jim Cornette tore into him already, but he wasn’t done as the former IC Champion continued to spread that narrative.
During Jim Cornette’s Drive Thru, the pro wrestling manager fired off a barraged of insults at Ryback. He called The Big Guy “jilted” because he never got to become World Champion before walking off.
“F*ck you. Just because you didn’t get to be World Champion, and you didn’t get to win the belt and you didn’t get to do whatever you wanted to do; to where you had to walk away on a multimillion dollar contract because they wouldn’t see how ‘great’ you were? You call the business phony and fake, you tell everybody the championships are props, don’t mean anything. You were f*cking jilted by your f*cking boyfriend so you try to tear him down.”
Ryback seems to be losing some support within the pro wrestling community after those comments about title belts. He also claims to be all healed up and ready to compete once again.
After dropping a tease that he will debut for AEW, a lot of people are paying attention to what The Big Guy does next. This situation is also one that Jim Cornette will likely never be shy about commenting on either.
