I always though he had a little "Shawn Michaels" in his voice, of course, this would be if Shawn had continued going down the path he did during the 90's, which thankfully he did not. Maybe it's just my ears playing tricks, but I'd swear at times, I can hear that hint of Shawn in there.

I'm not particularly against Ryan Reeves - aside from the fact that he can't wrestle and he has to take a nap in any match longer than about 5 minutes. I just hate Ryback, the character. Seriously, when he was allowed to be himself on Tough Enough and NXT, it was charming and he did come off a little dumb, but he was likeable. Now that he's this hungry monster thing, all the charm is gone. I'd make that man everything I know how to cook to hear, "Yep yep yep. What it do?" again.

You mean a character that's only been in the WWE under a year and is already getting some of the biggest pops and loudest chants? You think Vince should just abandon that? Not saying he's going to be the next huge superstar and carry WWE, but he's off to a good start and there's no indication so far that he won't be a big star.

And everything about him just screams Goldberg ripoff, which doesn't help.
Wait a minute...you just said fucking GOLDBERG was more creative?

most of his matches were as follows,

ding!
*Goldberg no sells some slight offense*
*Spear*
*pose for crowd*
*Jackhammer*
*Match over*

Its just a fact that all of you IWC regulars basically hate every wrestler that's popular. Ryback gets a huge reaction from the crowds, and if they did not have him lose to punk in 3 straight retarded ways...he would be even bigger, those loses really derailed him

Can Rock overcome the cheating bullshit that no other hero on the roster has been able to overcome. I'm a huge Punk fan, I approach it as "can Punk beat Rock," but that's really not the story. Punk didn't lose credibility in the Ryback storyline because his credibility wasn't premised on being "Best in the World," it was premised on him being a cheating asshole who won't let go of his belt (lol he literally clutches the thing with total fear in his eyes).
What you're saying is not reflected in the promos that The Rock is cutting. He's been saying that he knows how good Punk is, that he's a record breaker and deserves to call himself the best in the world. He hasn't focused at all on how Punk beat Ryback in those matches, which is understandable since what The Rock is doing is a much better story line where both guys get hyped going into the match.

And Punk hasn't been constantly cheating until Ryback came along. When he had his feud with Cena as a heel he was kicking out of finishers more than once per match and really taking him to his limits (the tally was one draw and one clean win in the triple threat). Also note how his first match during the Rock feud had Punk make his opponent tap out cleanly, just because this is a different kind of story where Punk again isn't completely without competence. And even when he did cheat, like against Sheamus on Main Event, he did it on his own by being smart in the ring and not by not being able to do anything on his own like with Ryback.

So the Ryback feud stands out in how Punk was booked. For me it does in a very negative way.

Yeah, i really enjoyed that Bro-off a few weeks ago, not. I haven't seen a omg moment at Impact since i started watching 2 years ago. It's just as boring as Smackdown now.

Goldberg had some pretty agile moves besides just the spear and jack hammer, and would use submissions that you didn't see many other people use at the time, MMA stuff. Ryback clotheslines people and does a modified samoan drop lol. Not to mention there's a lot of wrestlers that can deliver a mean clothesline, but the spear on the other hand has always been associate with Goldberg and it always looked awesome.

Someone else said it (I can't remember), but Ryback is pretty much a modified version of Goldberg, but Goldberg pretty much played his character to perfection, and there's really not anything else you can do to top what he did with that kind of character.

As for him losing to Punk 3 times, that's why they shouldn't have rushed him into the main event. It was obvious that Punk was facing the Rock, at the Royal Rumble (which they annouced after wrestlemania), having Ryback vs the Rock instead would make absolutely no sense, and having a situation where Punk drops the title, but quickly picks it up again, would only devalue the title.
