Ryback Ruled: The WWE Rise and Fall of Ryback


If you have ever been a fan of the WWE, or at least watched some of the product, it should be no secret to you that the WWE loves to ‘shotgun’ debuting wrestlers to the top. Some debut by compiling a large undefeated streak, while others win mid-card championships weeks, or even days into their career.

Either way, it seems like every year, the ‘machine’ that is WWE brings in these new Superstars and pushes them up, only for them to be pulled back down just as quickly. Is this making sense? Does this bring back any memories? Not sure? Do the names Brodus Clay, Fandango or the infamous Lord Tensai ring a bell? Well, do you remember when Ryback debuted on the main roster? He is a perfect example of a WWE Superstar who was pushed to the moon, only to soon after crash land back on Earth. Let me here to read more

The Atrocious WWE Booking Of Ryback


The WWE has done it again. WWE creative has successfully stalled any momentum one of their rising stars effectively killing off his potential. The booking of Ryback has been a disgrace and Vince McMahon should be ashamed of himself.

Let me make this perfectly clear. I am hardly a Ryback fan. He is not what you would call my cup of tea as far as a pro wrestler goes. However I can respect the business he brings to the company and at the end of the day this is a business. So please understand this isn’t a case of a Ryback fan whining about his favorite wrestler’s push. I am however a fan of good booking.

I wrote a blog last year when Ryback was shot to the top due to John Cena’s injury defending the idea that the WWE put him over CM Punk for the WWE championship. I understood that here to read more , ,

Ryback and the Case of the Has-Been Super Heel


If the WWE is going back to its roots and making the “heavyweight” the focus of the WWE title run, then can I ask what in the blue hell the company is going to do with Ryback?

After Paul Heyman came out and essentially say goodbye to the “big nothing” not only have I been wondering what Heyman’s next move is going to be, I cannot help but think of Ryan Reeves and what will eventually become of him and his character.

As it is right now, it seems the WWE is trying to make short work of him in the ring, that the big man is not safe to work a long program with other wrestlers and has injured top stars in the past because he is not a “Kane-like” worker in the run.

The fact the WWE had to push the big man along faster than maybe they would have like here to read more

WWE WrestleMania 30 Match Rumors Heat Up


It is always fun to follow rumors regarding The Undertaker and his WrestleMania opponents. Several options have been rumored for the Dead Man’s WrestleMania 30 match but the latest rumor is one that is raising a lot of eye brows.

Bryan Alvarez reports in the latest edition of Figure Four Weekly that there is serious consideration right now for a Ryback vs. The Undertaker match in New Orleans. What is even more surprising about this rumor is that the idea would be for Ryback to end the streak. The latest news certainly has a lot of people talking on social media and most are in an uproar over the idea.

“Right now, the company believes that Rock probably isn’t doing WrestleMania this year. All subject to change, of course. Undertaker hasn’t committed to working the show yet, but my gut tells here to read more , ,

Goldberg Vs. Ryback Must Happen In The WWE


You have heard the chants now for close to a year. Every week the fans are chanting for Goldberg whenever Ryback hits the ring or the ramp. The WWE fans have spoken and it’s time to give the fans what they want. Bring in Goldberg!

It pains me to write this blog. I am about as far from a Goldberg fan as you’ll find. I think his impact on the business is incredibly overrated. The man also seems as full of himself as ever on Twitter. The last thing I want to do is encourage anyone to feed his ego. Yet at the end of the day even can only ignore the obvious for so long before acknowledging that the fans are demanding to see him.

The phenomenon of Goldberg is a weird thing in 2013. He hasn’t appeared on television in years. His big run in WCW was only for a here to read more ,

WWE Wrestler of the Week: September 13th – 19th, 2013


WWE Wrestler of the Week has always been a superstar who achieved great success over the seven-day period. In the past, this has been the result of wins and being featured a lot on Raw and SmackDown. This week’s winner has broken that mold. He didn’t even have one match this week. How could the winner of this award not have even wrestled a match? Well, I will explain how Ryback, with an assist from Paul Heyman is on his way to big things after this week.

Ryback’s week began on Smackdown in a backstage segment. The Big Guy, as he now calls himself, has always been seen as someone with poor mic skills. That is why this segment was so interesting. Ryback interviewed a local Canadian wrestler to show off his skills. I was actually impressed and found Ryback to be pretty entertaining in this segment.

Top 5 Pro Wrestlers on the Rise/Decline Week Of August 9, 2013


Top 5 Wrestlers on the Rise

  • Christian: He just needed one more match. I like the move to give Christian the title match. Watching the match, I was sure that RVD would win. Why bring RVD back and not capitalize on how over he is with the casual and passionate fans? But back to Christian he deserves this match. He deserves a lot more than just this title match. I feel like he should win this match, I hope he doesn’t win just to lose to Sandow after he cashes in his Money in the Bank briefcase. Rhodes would not allow this to happen I would assume so if Christian does win, I see him walking out of Staples Center the World Heavyweight Champion.
  • Big E. Langston: Who is more dominant than Big E right now? For my money, no one. I am going on record right now and saying here to read more , , ,

    John Cena refuses Help, Walks on Water after WWE Extreme Rules


    John Cena apparently refused medical treatment on Sunday night after WWE’s Extreme Rules pay-per-view went off the air. As seen on, Cena had been loaded into the back of an ambulance and appeared to be on his way to the nearest facility, when he suddenly told those attending to him no, that he was not going to go.

    I swear you just can’t make this stuff up.

    However, someone in WWE creative did, as once again the point that John Cena is a superhuman fighting machine has been frustratingly driven home. Why frustrating? Well, we all know the answer to that one, right?

    Because John Cena is indestructible. That’s it. Do whatever you want to him, hit him as hard as you like, take the boots to him for a straight hour if you want, beat the man to a bloody pulp and here to read more , ,

    The recent problem with setups in the WWE: Inside The Wheelhouse


    There is a problem growing in the WWE recently that I don’t ever remember being this bad until now and that’s been how every match in the company has been poorly “setup” leading to a PPV match.

    On paper the WWE has given us The Rock vs. John Cena II, The Undertaker vs. CM Punk, Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar II (soon-to-be III as well), Chris Jericho vs. Fandango I (soon-to-be II as well), Alberto Del Rio vs. Jack Swagger I (soon-to-be II as well), John Cena vs. Ryback and the underrated Kofi Kingston vs. Dean Ambrose match. While on paper those are all very solid matches to be showcasing on WWE television, they haven’t gotten over with the fans as well as one would think. The excitement for these matches hasn’t been that strong at all.

    Now I know it’s easy to blame the WWE creative team for all these faults here to read more , , , ,

    Ryback’s Chances of Defeating John Cena at WWE Extreme Rules


    Ryback is a monster, a beast that is currently on the hunt in WWE. His latest target is WWE Champion John Cena, who he will be facing at Extreme Rules on May 19. The championship will be on the line in this one, but does Ryback really have a chance at winning?

    From the moment Skip Sheffield stopped wearing the cowboy hat and started wearing the airbrushed singlet, he has been the talk of WWE. Fans knew right away that the company intended on spotlighting the newly dubbed Ryback, though no one likely knew to what extent.

    He rose through the company by beating one jobber after another, oftentimes putting two men on his shoulders and marching around the ring with them. While many fans looked at him and saw Bill Goldberg version two, Vince McMahon looked at him and saw something entirely different.

    He saw the company’s next big star.

    WWE SmackDown Results May 3 and Recap


    This week’s WWE Friday Night SmackDown opens up with Ryback heading to the ring. Looks like we’re going straight into a match.

    Before that starts, though, Ryback has a few things to say. Last Monday night, he knew John Cena was hurt when he was supposed to tag with him to take on The Shield. He’s not Cena’s keeper. Cena chose to put himself in the match and put himself at further risk. He was the one who lost to The Shield. Afterwards, Cena was hobbling like a weak, pathetic animal. In the laws of the jungle, the bigger, stronger and faster animals always eat the weak. Ryback rules.

    MATCH 1: Ryback vs. WWE Tag Team Co-Champion Daniel Bryan Bryan hits a kick to the left leg, ducks a clothesline and hits another kick. He ducks a corner attack, hitting more kicks to the legs. Ryback finally boots him in the stomach and here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

    WWE Extreme Rules 2013 Card Takes Shape


    We are not getting closer to a full WWE Extreme Rules 2013 card but we at least have the main-events lined up. The WWE finally confirmed the WWE championship match we all expected, now making the top three matches official for the big May event.

    The WWE announced that John Cena vs. Ryback for the WWE championship is now official for Extreme Rules. The company made the announcement on their website. This certainly isn’t a shocker but it is a little surprising that they held off the official announcement for so long. A new article on has all of the details.

    This is Extreme Rules which means that all of the matches are expected to have some kind of gimmick match attached to it. No stipulation was announced for the match, nor did they even hint that there would be one. here to read more , , , , , ,
