Ryback is certainly not a lost cause. Vince is still interested in him as he seems to be getting a push lately and he's still very over with kids. IMO, they're doing what should be done, slow burning this thing.
Yeah, people like to exaggerate. He's really not close to finished.
I dont think psycho sid's theme really fits ryback. It's a little too creepy for a character that is supposed to be a bully but not actually sadistic. Maybe if they change his character over time to get more psychotic, then this theme could work very well.
I do agree that ryback's theme needs to be redone. I personally like it a lot, but it has very little impact. When Maddox announced he was coming out, the music just sort of played, and then he came out. It needs like a major intro. I actually would like maybe something like the beginning of psycho sid's intro to play, and then ryback walks out like he used too, with his head down and in "sleep mode." Then he could yell "wake up" and then the song suddenly changes to something energetic.
I actually liked it when the song was headed by "feed me" or the ambulance siren. If only it were convenient to always have a prop ambulance around, i'd love for him to always come out in one.
If they do remix his current song though, i would like to see the lyrics removed and the song done more like HHH's motorhead songs. I know almost nothing about music, but you know how "the Game" has a more gravelly guitar sound? I wish ryback's could sound more like that. It's more intimidating :P
