I'm going to hurt you and humiliate you before the entire world."

Are not beyond my comprehension. Far from it. To quote John Dryden, 'Beware the fury of a patient man.' And, Punk, the patience I possess is not--"

PUNK: "Wait, what?"

RYBACK: "I have accumulated vast reservoirs of knowledge. I have studied your methods, watched your contests. For as Sun Tzu writes in The Art of War, 'Know thyself, know thy enemy. A thousand battles, a thousand victories.' And I do know you, Punk. I know that you, today, sit at the top of the food chain of WWE... The only problem for you is my hunger grows more achingly voracious each time I am physically near you. To wit, I say... FEED... ME... MORE!!!!!!!!"

Then just leave that aspect to his character alone for several months as he goes back to roaring, "FEED ME MORE!"
His vocabulary must have a helluva appetite...

Awesome idea actually. Makes him seem very neutral and honest to the matter, and sticks to his character by "feeding" up the foodchain.



Thanks Punk

Intellectual Roidhead? Sounds like an absolutely awesome idea, would recommend you to WWEHQ. Reminds me of the good old days with the genetic freak from the highly educated university of Michigan. Not to mention, far more potential twists in character development as opposed to generic roidheads. Thinking about it, apart from Kane, WWE rarely does weird gimmicks where one guy has a schizophrenic/unorthodox personality, I'm sure that DesoRows idea would work well in todays environment.

Kind of like a Warrior promo with proper sources and footnotes.

Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

Smart move for Cena not to be there. They're going to bomb even more this week and then he will come back the week after when they're probably going to be up from the last two weeks so they can pretend that he was the difference maker in this process. Ryback also shouldn't be a factor here because they just showed him for 5 seconds "saving" Foley, a half teaser but not really something that will change interest.

That sounds awesome. The only question is how good of a mic worker is Ryback? As Skip a couple years ago I wasn't overly impressed, and as Ryback not sure I've ever heard him say anything except "Feed Me More!"

But if he's at least good on the mic this could be an awesome road to take. Actually kinda of reminds me of Maria (?) who was an interviewer and dumb in all her interviews, but then in the Bischoff court segment the act is dropped and she just slaughters Bischoff. Then she goes back to playing dumb. Doing the same or a similar thing with Ryback would add some flavor to his character so he can survive after he loses his undefeated streak.

I'm watching you...

That's not a bad idea actually...just that the whole 'as Sun Tzu writes' thing would be a blatent rip off of what Abyss was doing last year in TNA so not sure if they'd go with it.

Early bets on how bad the World Championship Debate does?
