Re: Hate him or love him. Ryback is over

Ryback's character is enigmatic, he has a good build and his "no bullshit, straight forward kick-ass machine" gimmick makes sense. Furthermore, they gave him a pretty cool entrance, and his progression gives the fans a sense of direction and promise that big things will come out of his push. I think there's more value in the journey than the end goal, where fans generally lose interest in upcoming talents due to the WWE's booking usually being hotshotted and clumsy, the gradual slowburn of a Ryback making his way through the ranks helps build an emotional investment to his character.

Goldberg was built up the same way, and it worked. What some people fail to realize is that fans didn't catch on to Goldberg right away, it took a while before grasping that this guy was WCW's kayfabe solution to dismantling the NWO regime, and the streak was something we've never seen before.

That's the problem with Ryback, people associate him with Goldberg due to the similar formula, but if the WWE incorporate enough unique elements to Ryback,comparisons may eventually quell. I also think that the WWE needs to create strong oposition for Ryback, if they created an unstoppable heel or stable, it would make fans see Ryback as the guy that could finally take said threat down. The key is for people to care about what he's doing, squashing guys left and right is fine in the early stages, but then he'll have to move on to a bigger purpose for fans to truly invest.

At one point, yeah.. now they seem to be getting better.

Until Ryback gets involved in a proper feud, he remains a borefest to me.

Check. I Like Dragon Gate and Chikara; liked RoH for a lot of years.



Check again! Bryan is my favorite wrestler ever, I like Punk and I couldn't be more excited for Dean Ambrose. Well gee, he must be talking about me!



Because I like pro wrestling you dope. Why do YOU watch?



Uhh, I've mentioned how much I like Ryback in every thread with his name on it. Tyrion Lannister says Ryback in an insult aimed towards his intelligence, and he hates Daniel Bryan.

So I don't get your fucking point.



Lord help us.
You must be seriously stupid if you don't get my fucking point. Jesus.

Cena is crap.

There's no proper feud he could be in right now. I'd rather see him kick someone's ass every week than get into some half assed feud with some schmuck. Too much going on right now before Summerslam for him to be feuding with someone.

Re: Hate him or love him. Ryback is over

i think Ryback is Fantastic, absolute beast. Most needed Enema for Smackdown



"To be the man, you gotta beat the man "

"All the women want to be with me, all the men want to be like me."

"My problem is that I think everybody needs to work as hard as I worked when I was in my prime."

Ric Flair has won a total of 30 different major championships between the NWA, WCW, and WWE, with numerous regional titles also to his credit.

Re: Hate him or love him. Ryback is over

Now, guys, be serious, his chants aren't being piped in. He is getting over and people are clearly chanting along. People like catchphrases. They put it in his theme so the chants will grow.

As for the whole he is over because he squashed people, lots of wrestlers have been introduced with squash matches and got nothing, so he has to have something that appeals to the crowd. Give him credit he got over squashing nobodies.

I'm indifferent to the guy to be honest, but he adds variety to the show. It just seems some people on here want the exact same wrestler with different names to fill up the show. I would hate to see a show run by the collective IWC mind (note the word collective), it would get boring so quickly.

But seriously, are you guys hating on talent for getting over without beating anyone remotely relevant? WOW, just wow.

People complain about newer talent not getting over, but what they mean is that their favourite isn't getting over, everyone else can go to hell. I'm for as many people getting over as possible, it would improve the show and the more over people there are, the more avenues there are to push new talent, yes, your favourites are more likely to get pushed if there are more over people to feud with.

Re: Hate him or love him. Ryback is over

I am enjoying Ryback's push, the fans were great on Monday. I was dying though when JTG was like "get that pink eye away from me!" to the ref
