His promo tonight was actually pretty decent, I like the whole intense thing he has going on, don't know how people say he has no presence, that's really one of his strong suites. You know when Ryback is out there and the crowd gets extra hyped when he is. His match wit Titus was good imo, first time he actually took some damage. For anybody saying his hype is dying or the crowd doesn't care about him anymore, all that needs to be done to debunk that is listen to crowd when The Shield was beat up in Daniel Bryan, how they were chanting for Ryback before he came out and the pop he got once he showed up.

Top 5 All Time - Rey Mysterio, The Rock, DDP, Stone Cold, Jeff Hardy
They gave him more mic time and he did fine. I don't know if he talked much as Skip but I found two videos where eh just muttered a few words. His ring work hasn't convinced me quite yet, needs some polish. Like Rock316AE said this is way better than the food talk and although the out of breath talking was off putting it was alright.
I don't think his promo tonight was amazing, it was better than I expected so my verdict is...

I think Ryback is pretty damn great and worthy of his spot right now. He is a guy people cheer for thunderously in the arena, he is powerful AND he has the look of a megastar. Despite the crowd going against him with the Goldberg chants, he got through it LIKE A MAN and turned it around to his favor, now his chant is as big as Goldberg's chants were if not bigger. If you look at tonights episode people were chanting for Ryback like CRAZY and they didnt cheer for anyone else much on the show aside from John Cena. Ryback could possibly be the guy to take WWE to bigger and greater heights because he has a CONNECTION with the crowd like no other at the moment, and his record is unprecedented in the WWE. I hate when people talk about him like he has no talent. Guess what, he main evented Survivor Series with CM PUNK and JOHN CENA and did a fine job. He is a good wrestler for his size and keeps improving in the ring and on the mic every damn week. The proof is in the pudding, he gets thunderous reactions and everything with him seems to click. Ryan Reeves, the guy behind the Ryback character has busted his butt in developemental for years and has EARNED his spot. Vince fully supports him for good reason, he has all the tools to be an all time great. He accomplished popularity in just a few months that it took Hall of Famers years to get. When he comes through that curtain there is always an aura about him, a mystique that legends are made of.
I think people just like to hate on those that are popular because they like being counterculture. The truth is that Ryback is a new face and something fresh. Deal with it, he is here to stay and he will be a huge deal for years to come!

Can you describe these extraordinary talents? What are they?
Don't say booking, either. WWE have built him up quite well. Let's talk about the talents of the performer and his incredible abilities some say he has.
Punk at TLC will be the reigning WWE champion for over 380 days, beating John Cena's longest reign. CM Punk will have the longest single wwe reign after pedro morales. Now I only hope he beats ryback and goes on to defend the title against The Rock. I don't care ryback can win the fucking rumble it doesn't mean shit anymore since alberto won it.
