Re: Am I The Only One Who Likes Ryback?

He's a great midcard face. I like his power style and, when given the time, he can actually put on a great match. No one should expect a Bret Hart classic from him ever, or else you'll be sorely disappointed. But he has his own style and brings an element of passion to the ring.

I wish he had more to his "boyscout" character that someone alluded to earlier. I feel like his bully character could have been more successful had his heel turn not come prematurely. Do it when he's stale, not when he has all the momentum in the world.

I actually quite like the Ryback now that he is a face, just keep away from the whole "The Secret" malarkey.

Re: Am I The Only One Who Likes Ryback?

No, you're not the only one. Personally I don't like him.

I try to like him but he's just so boring that I can't help it. He's below average to me, his mic skills are poor, everytime he speaks he sounds like a robot, he looks and acts like like a goof, and in the ring he's sloppy. His IC run has been pretty awful and I'm glad Owens is the champ now.

Aside that, I think he's a nice guy outside the wrestling persona

He is missing the "IT" factor + sloppy in the ring.

I feel that he didn't elevate the IC title. I don't hate him, he just feels "mediocre" I guess.

I always try to give my honest opinion.

Re: Am I The Only One Who Likes Ryback?

This time last year he was pretty damn over. Somehow after returning from injury the live crowds were loving the guy even though prior to that CM Punk had basically squashed the guy into oblivion repeatedly in both their feuds. His current persona isn't working though, his inspirational face thing, he's clearly not comfortable with it. Compare it to his bully stuff or his cocky big guy promos, its like night and day. I'm a fan, one thing WWE cant ruin is his intensity.
