I legitimately don't mind the idea of pushing somebody straight from their debut, it creates long-term stars, but this guy who plays Ryback is horrible at EVERYTHING except for being big and muscular. He has literally no other attractive quality. Why did they not pick somebody better for this push? Are there no other guys in development, or in free agency that could do as well as Ryback with this push? The guy is just so damn terrible, and it took him a long time to get over.

Ryback is cool, Ryan Reeves is horrible.
Not sure what interviews your watching. Ryback has consistently been called one of the most humble, down-to-earth guys in the whole company, and it shows in his interviews.

^furious, projects self-image onto others^

Talent/charisma draws. Not size.
