Re: That Was It?
The sad part about Ryback is that he hasn't actually done much to get the responses he has. He only does squashes so he doesn't offer much actual wrestling. He pretty much only has a catch phrase, so he hasn't offered any mic work. He just has his look and his push. It shows that you don't actually have to bring much quality in order to get over and compared to Cesaro, Ryback seems pretty untalented. That's why I'm so skeptical that Ryback will be equal to his reactions when he actually has to start working (talking and wrestling proper matches).
As for some people saying that we should give him time to evolve, it's too late. When you're put in a story line with the big stars you have to deliver now, in my opinion.
