This. Ryback actually has charisma and has more intensity than Mason Ryan could ever wish to have. If Mason got the exact same booking he wouldn't of been as successful, Ryback got it to work better than most expected. I mean, who thought Ryback would get this over this quickly? I didn't, and I expect most people didn't either. Yes booking someone like an unstoppable monster will get you over eventually, but for Ryback it just clicked.
