Ryback doesn’t light up WWE television anymore, and lot of stories have come out about him since his hiatus from in-ring action started. He also has very blunt opinion about how Vince McMahon will be remembered after he dies. Some have said that he is unsafe in the ring, but Ryback has a lot to say about that.
Ryback’s WWE career was stopped for many reasons, but one of them was that he was injured himself. Although the number of injuries attributed to Ryback haven’t been publicly released, he has spent the past several years getting his own body back in ring-shape. At this point, he is simply waiting for the green light from his doctor so he can start taking bumps in the ring as well.
During a recent live stream, Ryback remarked that pro wrestlers who know, know what he is safe. In fact, he claimed to be one of the safest wrestlers in the ring. He then decided to take a shot at any fan who reads stories on the internet about how unsafe he is.
“I’m one of the safest wrestlers. People who know, know. Those who know, know. There is nothing more miserable than wrestling marks who complain about everything and you guys read the dirt sheets from the people that are mentally not all there. Unfortunately it says a lot about yourself when you read and process that stuff and then come out and share those opinions from the same people. Says a lot about you “Joel” as a human being.”
CM Punk had a lot to say about working with Ryback, as he said it took years off his career. Others have also made references to how rough the Big Guy is in the ring, although he does have his supporters, like Dolph Ziggler, and other friends he still has in the pro wrestling business.
We will have to see if Ryback is able to make a return to any pro wrestling product. He made it very clear that he wouldn’t even trust WWE enough if they offered him $10 million to come back, as he further dragged Vince McMahon by saying that his terrible actions will destroy his legacy after his passing.
Only time will tell what Ryback does or says next, but he will keep going, driven and ready to speak his mind whenever he sees fit. If anything, he is still drumming up headlines, and that attention will keep his name relevant in the pro wrestling business.
