Re: For the first time in a loooong time..
Nope, not impressed at all. He's a Goldberg knockoff act who fails at replicating everything Goldberg did so well. I can't buy the gimmick either, because I remember him as Skip Sheffield, and he's lost on television before, so building him like this doesn't work on me. "Generic and boring" describes Ryback to a T, you could do this job with any other roided up freak who shaved his head.

We can't believe that someone with your skin color has the level of education that you have, so your gimmick is just gonna be that we put you on tv and brag that you went to school. Cause that's basically the gimmick that they gave him, how much more racist could his gimmick have been? Am I missing something here? What was the reason that the people were supposed to get behind him, other than the company just saying "phht, well, he's...in school".
