So many others have been snuffed out for not being "good enough" and here comes someone who is subpar in every way and the answer is to continue pushing him as he is now?
Let me be straight up. There's only so long a one-dimensional character like this can last. His matches are 10 mins or less...who is going to pay $50-60 to see a 10 min main event? Nobody. You need to develop characters in order for them to have staying power. Ryback has ZERO staying power right now. He hasn't even been in a proper feud.
People like to chant, it is what it is. That's not a mandate to put the title on him. If you need a new FoC (face of the company) roll with Fella (and I don't even like him), at least he's shown to put on real main events and can carry himself in real feuds. This Ryback dude is way too inexperienced and untested to get strapped up anytime soon.
What he 'does' is get people behind him. A hell of a lot more than Sheamus who has been pushed harder than Ryback for over a year and has pretty much completely failed to connect with the crowd. Wrestling is about creating characters that people get behind and want to see. I don't know if Ryback's popularity will last or not, I don't want him to be the champion for that reason but right now he is the hottest face in the company and deserves his status in the main event.
