So Taker should have been able to do the tombstone on the Big Show to be a credible main eventer?
To be fair, Taker was able to Tombstone Mark Henry, who was arguably heavier than The Big Show at that time(just compare the two, Henry is a lot fatter). Taker by the way might be slightly overrated on other areas, but imo he's underrated when it comes to strength. His matches against Henry, Batista and other big guys prove his power.
As for Ryback, I don't care for the botch that much as I care that he wasn't just throwing Tensai around like a Lesnar or Goldberg would've done. Ryback needs to demonstrate more power moves, simple slams and suplexes. One botch isn't that bad, but I want the guy to be able work a more enjoyable style if he indeed is going to fill my computer scene for a long time.
Stay on your feet! No crawling, no CHEATING!(you're too big, fella)
Listen to me when I talk to you.
To everyone who denies that this is a sandbag, I want you to have a look at the video again while reading this post. Look closely at Tensai's Knees and lower leg as Ryback tries to lift him.
Normally in a move like this Tensai would give a big push from his leg and help Ryback get him up, this is done by the push off the leg and swinging his hips around so that he places on his shoulders without injuring either man. You can clearly see that Tensai puts in minimal effort in his push and has his left leg around the back of Ryback's knee, blocking him from lifting Tensai up.
You know what would be bad ass if he came in and did that to Big Show or Henry. That would shut a lot of people up.
Amen. If the creative team is seriously looking to push Ryback, the would have something done like that and then the whole argument would be like he did it to Show, Tensai sandbagged him and that is why he could not do it.
But the point in case being, it did not impact Ryback based on the reactions he got and that will ensure his push going ahead full steam.
Like him or hate him or call him Roidberg or Rybrock, he will be around for sometime; atleast till he faces Cena.
