Re: How can anyone hate Ryback?

He's just another roided up Lurch. You can also practically see the "duh" thought bubble appear over his head when he speaks.

They should not have him talk, otherwise he's golden.

Re: How can anyone hate Ryback?

He can't wrestle more than a shitty 5 minutes match without taking a nap.
He can't talk for shit.
He botched his finisher. TWICE.
He has the power of a 100lbs man.
His facial expressions make me burst in tears of laugh.
I can't take him seriously even as a lowcarder after I've seen his Tough Enough shit. He's a redneck.
He is one of the ugliest pro wrestlers I've ever seen.
He is a douchebag outside the ring.
The only reason he has a job it's because he feeds himself steroids and Vince can masturbate on his muscles.
He is overpushed over more talented guys including Antonio Cesaro, Dean Ambrose, Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Dolph Ziggler, Wade Barrett, Tyson Kidd, Cody Rhodes, Damien Sandow, Ted DiBiase and the list can go FUCKING ON.

Re: How can anyone hate Ryback?

I'm sick of the "IWC always hates on big guys" garbage. Everyone loves Lesnar, everyone loves Goldberg, everyone loves Barrett, heel Batista was very popular, etc.

Ryback is an incredibly limited, one-dimensional wrestler who I can't imagine being in a compelling feud with anybody. He has very few moves, can't cut a promo worth a damn, gasses out in even regular-length matches, does the exact same thing every time (and before you say all main event wrestlers are repetitive, well, he can't even get through an entire match without repeating himself), and his strength doesn't live up to the hype, especially when you compare him to the feats of a guy who's been pushed alongside him, Cesaro.

He got over, but people get behind crap all the time, doesn't mean I have to like it, and that doesn't mean I "instinctively hate what's popular" crap either.

I am starting to think that the IWC think all jacked up guys can't wrestle and are just there for show. Thats not the case. Ryback could wrestle. Batista could wrestle. Brock Lesnar could wrestle. Goldberg could wrestle. Ultimate Warrior could wrestle. And I don't give a fuck what anyone says, wrestling is all theatre and these 5 guys gave a hell of a show when it all comes down to it. Not everyone can be a technical mastermind. Ryback has a role and he plays it perfectly.

I love Ryback.
There's something you need to understand about pro wrestling. Its such a simple answer to say Ryback looks the part, but the problem is online wrestling fans are called "smarks" for a reason: they're supposed to be smart. What good is following wrestling news if you're just going to have the same opinion that a casual fan comes to? So, a smark's opinion on Ryback has to be more nuanced then just "Yeah, that was entertaining. Listen to the crowd enjoying this. I guess he's doing his job." Nono, the answer has to be more complicated.

So, you have to pinpoint everything conceivably wrong with the wrestler. Steroids, substandard mic skills, not Bill Goldberg. Anything whatsoever to keep the guy from being a main eventer. If Ryback's a main eventer, then smarks are just as intelligent as any other wrestling fan. No, we have to purposely come up with 50 reasons to bash Ryback that also apply to 90 percent of the roster, but we're going to apply it to Ryback specifically. Looks ugly, stole RVD's tights, can't wrestle, needed his opponent to make him look good, Vince just gets a hardon for him, w/e. Sure, the Rock put on 50 lbs in his mid 30's, but that's just special effects, not steroids. And if a guy's mic skills are bad now, that means they'll be "low to uppermidcard at best for life." Ignore the fans, they don't know what entertains them. The marks do. Oh, and don't forget, Daniel Bryan deserves an Oscar for being preachy about veganism for three months. You know, before he became popular. Now that he has a popular catchphrase, he sucks. Last but not least, he used to play a different gimmick that wasn't that great. The cardinal rule of pro wrestling is that if one gimmick stinks, you have to stick with it or quit. NEVER FORGET FLEX KAVANA!

See? Its not so simple because its supposed to not be so simple. So join with me everyone. Let's find everything wrong with pro wrestling and throw it at Ryback. If anyone not from the AE wins a world title, it'll mean wrestling as we know it is doomed.


In all seriousness though, he does need to improve his mic skills, and his acting a bit too. In other words, he just started playing the gimmick. Give him time. His popularity, combined with the fact that he's improving in every area, merits giving him a spotlight. His promos today are sooo much better than just 3 months ago. Lesnar couldn't talk, Goldberg couldn't talk, nobody could right off the bat, not even the Rock and he was a phenom when it comes to mic skills (historically great mic skills by 25). Lol 90 percent of the roster can't talk at all, and that's not an exaggeration, give Ryback a chance.

WWE favorites: Punk, Sheamus, Lesnar, Ambrose, Rollins, Reigns,

Re: How can anyone hate Ryback?

It's not that we are smart marks, just those fans are NOT smart. All he has is a beefed up look, nothing else. I do apologize if some of us aren't so entertained just because he happens to be big. Standards and all that, you know.

Not interested in discussing this in detail, just posting this gif for the lulz.

You're not interested in discussing it in detail because the gif clearly shows its Tensai's fault. Wrestling is fake. You're supposed to help your opponent pick you up in virtually every wrestling move. Ryback can't live Tensai's entire body, much less get his legs on his shoulders. Tensai's an asshole, just like Hardcore Holly was an asshole when he wouldn't do a basic situp to help Brock set up a powerbomb. Brock isn't supposed to get you to sit on your shoulders; its fake. Have you ever seen a delayed suplex, or even a normal suplex? You think that's one guy doing the work?
