Nothing new about it.
I agree. Ryback isn't anything new if you're old enough to remember Goldberg.
I have come to accept that WWE is going to push Ryback to the moon whether we like it or not though. I just hope he improves in all areas and evolves into something much better than this current Goldberg type of thing he's doing. I can remember Lesnar having Goldberg chants directed at him when he was squashing everybody early on and he still evolved into something pretty decent. Although he was even more of a physical specimen than Ryback, a much better overall athlete (saw him pull off shooting star presses when he was first starting out) and he also had all the amateur wrestling accomplishments and eventually UFC accomplishments that added tons of credibility to his WWE character.
