Could WWE not have picked somebody more less terrible than Ryan Reeves for Ryback?
 
-Unable to work a good match at all unless Punk is in there
-Unable to work for 5 minutes without getting winded
-Unable to perform his finisher consistently without botching (Heyman, Tensai)
-Unable to cut even a below average promo
-Unbearably ugly (Literally one of the ugliest people I have ever seen)
-From every non-kayfabe interview he's done, he comes off as a massively cocky douche bag.
-Lacks any sort of charisma or ability to connect to the crowd without his chant
-Clearly a steroid user

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.

I wish they'd get someone less shit to play John Cena too.

lolwut?

Ryback is Ryan Reeves' personally created gimmick and character that he's had for years.

He was in OVW with that gimmick.

Ryan Reeves using his Ryback gimmick 4 years ago in OVW:

Ryback is cool. Too bad most people still live in the 90's and think Bill Goldberg is coming out. Oh wait, some people hated him back then too, as show in that usenet thread months back with fans bitching.

Wrestling should just openly flame the IWC. It would be great.

That's not how it works. They don't come up with a character and then find a wrestler to play the role, they find a role that fits the wrestler. If Batista didn't debut the same time as Lesnar, Batista prob would've gotten that same push, but they couldn't do two at the same time (and Lesnar was younger and an incredible athlete). Today, someone looking like Ryback showed up, so they went the Goldberg route with him.

Couldn't they find someone else? Just not how it works. You see a star, you promote them, and Ryback's a star. He's popular NOW, he's entertaining in the ring, and he's improving on the mic. I loved him five months ago, when he was a midcarder, cuz I don't think he's ready for the main event, but guess what, there's no belt on him. His storyline with Punk was a two month storyline that's now over, so he can feud with Shield, a bunch of midcarders. Its all good.

And btw, Lesnar was and is horrible on the microphone, though I agree he was better and more entertaining altogether. This is why I think Ryback should be a monster heel. He's perfect for that role in my opinion.

His squash matches are boring as fuck, and that is where he is supposed to shine.

I mean Goldberg & The Ultimate Warrior both got over because they killed their opponents in awesome ways. Ryback just has the same meandering paint by numbers match every time it is a squash.

And everything about him just screams Goldberg ripoff, which doesn't help.

Goldberg retired 9 yrs ago, same day Lesnar did. I think its okay to reuse his/their look or gimmick.
