Any one who defends Ryback is on some other shit. Can u really sit there and say that this guy entertains u? He doesn't, he does the same shit in his matches, cuts meaningless promos (not to mention awkward) then chants feed me more. I don't get how this guy is fun to watch?

Yep, me too.
Are you really asking whether Ryback fans enjoy seeing him perform? Every wrestler does the same shit; all but ten wrestlers lack mic skills (and Ryback is improving there, and that's all you can ask for cuz it takes time), and yes he has a chant. He's fun to watch because we, the viewers who don't make it our mission to shit on our favorite tv show, buy into his character.
Let's be clear on how they've booked him. He's not ready to be champion, which is why he was never going to be champion. Like Goldberg and Lesnar, the 'character' is supposed to be championship material, so they booked him as better than CM Punk, but kept the belt off of him nonetheless, and used the credibility and momentum from the Punk rivalry to put him in a rivalry with the Shield, OTHER newcomers who are pretty entertaining right from the start. So, if a yr from now he's better on the mic and more entertaining in the ring, or 2 yrs from now, they can put the belt on him, and not have to say "it took him this long to get here," cuz he'll have gotten screwed in the process.
And, as a huge Punk mark, I can say that the rivalry was great for CM Punk. The size difference emphasizes that Punk is a lying, coward, cheater who shouldn't be champion, and the cheating which was perfect for a Ryback storyline was perfect for Punk as heel. It gave us Maddox and Shield, and Heyman/Punk as the ultimate screwjob artists. It was a great storyline, promoted Punk and Ryback just as their characters are supposed to be promoted, led well into future storylines (Punk the heel who really needs heat, Ryback vs. Shield), and didn't result in Ryback being a permanent main event fixture.
In fact, Ryback was only put in the Punk rivalry (and thus pushed to the pt of getting the IWC to hate him) because Cena was injured. Who the hell knew that the backup story would be this good. Ryback is more popular than he was before, and his mic skills HAVE IMPROVED, Punk is more of a heel than he was before, and it gave us Shield vs. Ryback (and Shield vs. Ryback/Hell No at TLC was awesome). This is GREAT BOOKING. And, to the person quoted above, I am indeed entertained by it.
