Where were you last week when Ryback lost 500'000 viewers and the week before when he lost 500'000 viewers?

Dudes a failure. 8 years in developmental and WWE can't trust him to work over 2 mins in a 15 min tag match. Pathetic.

Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

IIRC, I posted after every breakdown in the last two weeks. And I said that Ryback should be tested on a main time slot. One time he did good in the 9pm for his match with Ziggler and Otunga, and this week he did a big gain for the tag with Cena.

What a draw.
Just saw it

It was said that pay-per-view buy numbers for Hell in a Cell on DirecTV were "surprisingly strong." Privately, McMahon credited Ryback for the result and felt placing him in a ten-man tag team, even though he'd likely be left standing, would did nothing for him. McMahon feels they need to capitalize on Ryback's momentum, which would require the muscle-bound grappler challenging for the WWE Championship in the main event.
Ryback is hot right now without a doubt.

Do you even know why you like him? Are you just blinded by the fact he's big? Don't you acknowledge he's just a Goldberg ripoff but with none of the presence, stardom or intensity he possessed?

Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

I see him as a fresh, interesting and believable character on the show. He knows his character, you can see it with his walk, facial expressions, taunts, etc and can get better in the future. I have no problem with his style in ring because it suits his presence. You say that they're not trusting him to work 15 minutes tag matches, but what's the purpose of him working 8 minutes of the match and selling half the time when there's a chance to protect his aura? That way Cena sells, Ryback destroys and looks unstoppable. I thought the booking of the tag match was pretty obvious, especially with Ryback entering after Cena. Yes, without Goldberg, there's no Ryback. And he will never be close to Goldberg in any aspect, but Goldberg was a megastar to a completely difference fanbase. That fanbase is mostly gone by now. Ryback is a big future money with the right presentation. If that report is true, he's already showing his worth.

How is a man who only says feed me more believable in any sense of the word? imagine someone who hasn't watched wrestling before and seeing a jacked up grown man lifting his arms up and down shouting FEED ME MORE over and over again. They would think its ultra lame and stupid and only lends to more evidence as to why wrestling isn't cool anymore.

fresh? even though we saw the exact same character done a million times better 13 year ago?

And if WWE intends to have him as a maineventer in the future he will have to work over 15 min matches damn near every week, and if WWE don't even trust him to work 3 mins on TV and 10 mins on PPV, EVEN THOUGH HE HAS BEEN IN WWE DEVELOPMENTAL FOR 8 FUCKING YEARS! then what the hell can you do with him? what more help can he possibly need?

Sooner or later he'll be horribly exposed and WWE will give up on him. I guarantee it. Its happened before with dozens of big men, nothing leads me to believe Ryback will be an exception.

How is a short junkie looking guy who says he's the best in the world believable when his manager looks more intimidating than him?

How is a guy in jorts and colorful t-shirts who cuts some of the most ridiculous promos and gets shit on by half the crowd every night believable?

How is a guy who pretends to be dead believable?

How is a guy who talks in the third person and constantly tries to get shit trending on twitter believable?

How is a guy with a larger than usual nose who constantly references his dick believable?

You really want to go that route? Ryback hasn't exactly set the world on fire but he has appeal. He may not appeal to you but that doesn't mean that he can't appeal to others. I'm not completely sold on him but I'm not going to shit all over him because he's getting a chance. You whine and bitched for how long about Punk never getting a chance. Now other people are getting chances and suddenly it's a horrible thing that should never happen. Stop crying. If you're so certain Ryback is going to fail then wait it out and he'll be gone in a couple of months. What's the problem?

I think you got hooked up on my first complaint of believability. What about the fact he's been wrestling in OVW/FCW since 2004 and WWE didn't trust him to work 10 mins on a main event of a PPV for the WWE championship? That a huge, gaping problem IMO that those who you compared my former complaint too didn't/don't have that problem.

Two bad segments and you call Ryback a failure. But when somebody ESTABLISHED like Punk gets 2 bad segements you call it "an off day" or "the storyline sucks". You should not double standard like that. And for the record, RyBack was not the full quater holder in either of those quaters. Filler stuff occupied it too(like Be-A-Star and a Sheamus doll).

What about these:

An Undead Funeral Director

A man who refers to himself in third person and used catchphrases all the time

A redneck who guzzled beer and hated his boss

A champion who doesn't weigh more than 210 pounds and is referred to ON-SCREEN as "skinnyfat"

A man who wears a rainbow of colours and acts like a boyscout


Its wrestling, when you're over with the crowd, you're over and popular.



Thanks Punk

What the fuck does the "feed me more" catchphrase has to do with believability?
