Couldn't disagree more with the OP. Ryback is gold. He's lost steam because of shit booking, but he has the makings of a legit star. And I'm tired of the Goldberg ripoff arguments. Is Goldberg supposed to be the only one that can ever be muscled, fast and intense in the ring? I actually like his finisher, although he should have a backup for larger wrestlers.

Well guess what OP? He's a draw for kids, has a chant and sells merch (those poncho things he wears sell pretty well). He'll be here for a while, get over it.

If you think he's horrible on the mic, you clearly have only ever seen him as Ryback and not over the course of his (I think?) 7/8 year career.

Though I must admit, I think he'd work better as the silent muscle or bodyguard type better than he does as a face. It'd be more intimidating. But that's not to say I don't enjoy his current character.

I just can't wait for the day Triple H takes over and makes RAW what it was. He clearly sees actual talent since he's the head of developmental. He is the one that saved us from a Rytarded title reign when Vince thought it would be 'cool' to make Rybitch won the WWE title...

Lesnar was good at wrestling and he still is, Lesnar is a 1 in a million athletic specimen who was an MMA champion while Ryback can't lift up Paul Heyman successfully and cannot work a match without getting insanely winded. Lesnar is also a more marketable guy because he is not untolerably ugly.

Orton was a guy where you could say that a star was seen. His face run was not too well received, but he still got pushed to the moon afterward. And, hate him or not, he certainly has been a successful star.
Reigns is awesome? Based on what?

Rollings is awesome? Hahaha

It's amazing how fans bitch that WWE doesn't make new wrestlers, then they make Ryback. Then fans bitch about the guy doing it. There is so much more stuff wrong with WWE right now than Ryan Reeves, it's not even funny. He's not even close to being as bad as portrayed here, and some of your bitching OP is bullshit.

See reply to "unable to cut a promo"

If you want Lesnar back so much, try Youtube. I just think you're entirely off base and half of your list of "gripes" were just plain bullshit to make your list of grievances look bigger than was actually warranted. The ol "well I only hate one or two things about him, but I'll list more so there is more to talk about"

I mean "unbearably ugly" - what the fuck? I guess we need more good looking guys to appease you and the females in the audience. Hmm.....yeah we need more of this guy:



Right OP?

I'd have rather of seen Brodus Clay get this Ryback push, but as a heel obviously; not the Funkasaurus.

LOL we know who are the ones that complain that Ryback is over and is a future star they same one who dont like him getting pushed over goat face and the second coming of jesus Ambrose,its in threads like these were you can see the hypocritical bullshit from some marks here,this are the same people who bitch and moan of how Vince never produces ''new'' talent and how he should be building new stars(punk,bryan,ambrose) instead of giving the spotlight to old attitude era guys(taker,Rock,HHH) but the minute they try to build someone you complain on how you dont like this guy cause hes ugly XDDDD pure gold

I legitimately don't mind the idea of pushing somebody straight from their debut, it creates long-term stars, but this guy who plays Ryback is horrible at EVERYTHING except for being big and muscular. He has literally no other attractive quality. Why did they not pick somebody better for this push? Are there no other guys in development, or in free agency that could do as well as Ryback with this push? The guy is just so damn terrible, and it took him a long time to get over.

Ryback is cool, Ryan Reeves is horrible.
Not sure what interviews your watching. Ryback has consistently been called one of the most humble, down-to-earth guys in the whole company, and it shows in his interviews.

Talent/charisma draws. Not size.

The complaint about the chant made me laugh.

clearly that's a sign he's connected with the audience.
