Ryback made his debut in WWE back in 2012, where he had a memorable run in the company. Unfortunately, that is all a thing of the past after he was eventually released by the company in 2016. That said, now it appears Paul Heyman refused to acknowledge his time managing Ryback.

Long after his WWE release, Ryback was clearly bitter as he continuously attacked Vince McMahon, Triple H and WWE in general for a wide variety of reasons over the years.

It is a well-known fact that Paul Heyman used to manage Ryback in WWE, but it wasn’t all that successful. After his WWE release, Ryback has gone after Heyman numerous times over the years.

While speaking on a Twitch stream, recently released WWE Superstar Mansoor talked about the time Ryback called him out for not having enough charisma. Mansoor responded by posting a photo of a poll Ryback had shared sometime earlier in which fans called for him to retire.


Mansoor would then share the entire Twitter interaction with Paul Heyman, adding that he called Ryback Paul Heyman’s ‘boy.’ Heyman wasn’t happy about that and made it clear that he never wanted to acknowledge his time managing Ryback and calling Ryback his ‘boy.’

“We’re on the bus, SmackDown is on the bus, and I go up to Paul Heyman and show him the Tweet. And I say, hey Paul, your boy just called me out on Twitter.

Heyman looks at me and goes: My boy? And I go ‘Yeah remember he’s one of your boys, you managed him?’ And Heyman said: ‘Don’t you ever call that schmuck my boy ever again.'”

It is highly unlikely Paul Heyman and Ryback will ever bury the hatchet, as Ryback made it clear on numerous occasions that he will never like the Special Counsel to The Tribal Chief in this lifetime.
