Showmanship is important in this game, surely you guys realise this?
Sure it isn't the greatest display of showmanship but he's trying - better than just doing the move, plain and simple - not adding any twists of his own to it.
The People's Elbow is pretty silly as well, even if it's backed up with The Rock's charisma. His Rock Bottom is far, far better in my opinion and he manages to make that special without the silly theatrics.
And Ryback isn't the kind of showman that The Rock is, he's supposed to be a monster. Therefor he should bring more intensity and danger rather than showing off, especially with a march that looks a bit child like. His wind up to his meat hook clothesline looks much better to me (although I personally find the "feed me more" chants ruining the moment for the same sillyness reason).
If I had my way I'd just have Ryback pick up his opponent, look intense, perhaps while shouting, and then just drop him. I would also have used his "feed me..." as a more direct catch phrase (like Goldberg's "you're next") rather than him being a chanting cheerleader.
