Zack Ryder’s Last ReZort and What It Could Mean for his Future in WWE

WWE’s Zack Ryder is back on his YouTube channel with a new series called “Zack Ryder’s Last ReZort.” In the first episode of the series, Ryder discusses joining WWE and how his dream to become a professional wrestler has turned into a nightmare. It’s a bold move by Ryder, but I respect his decision to give his dream one last chance.

Ryder’s previous series, Z! True Long Island Story, propelled his status in WWE and among wrestling fans all over the Internet. Ryder created the series on his own and created a huge following of fans that wanted to see the Z-Man pushed in WWE. Unfortunately, management didn’t see Ryder as a main event caliber star. His push went as far as becoming WWE United States Champion. While that is a nice prize to achieve in the WWE, Ryder certainly has higher goals in mind.

After watching Ryder’s new series, I thought this was a great idea, but another thought came to mind. Is it better to risk one’s job and make an Internet show about the lack of a push one receives or should one accept his role as a jobber?

Take the Brooklyn Brawler for example. Last year, I listened to the Brawler on Colt Cabana’s Art of Wrestling podcast. The Brawler discussed his role as a permanent enhancement talent. He basically said he saw his role as paying his dues and he didn’t really care whether or not he was winning.

Are wrestlers like Zack Ryder, JTG, Dolph Ziggler and others right or wrong to voice their displeasure with their status in WWE?

The answer is neither. There is no right or wrong. Everyone approaches the situation differently. There are plenty of wrestlers who have never publicly complained about their status. Yet, it’s understandable when wrestlers do complain.

Ryder may be hoping his latest attempt will result in a similar, if not bigger push than last time. While his last series didn’t push him to the main event of WrestleMania, it did push him to more relevancies in the WWE. In fact, his latest attempt could put him next to Daniel Bryan in the storylines.

Think about it. Bryan’s current storyline is that the Authority is keeping him down. He is never treated properly or given the respect and push he deserves. Ryder should join the Yes Movement and force the Authority to treat them better. Just like Ryder, Bryan created his own following of fans. Bryan created the Yes Movement. WWE didn’t. Ryder created his own Revolution. It’s time for the Ryder Revolution and Yes Movement to join forces. Triple H may be able to keep one man down, but what happens when he has to deal with the YES Revolutionary Army?

If Ryder’s latest attempt were to fail once again, should he leave or take the Brooklyn Brawler’s approach to his role? Again, there is no right or wrong answer, as long as whatever decision he makes ultimately keeps him WOO WOO WOOing all day and all night long.
