He was way over with the crowd, then got a major push, then seemed to slowly be seen less and less on screen (even though at that time fans were still chanting 'We Want Ryder') ... but now, it seems like fans don't seem to be as behind him anymore and his TV time is very minimal, apart from the odd jobber match that he'll participate in.

So I was wondering, do you think that Zack Ryder could ever get another push or gain momentum the way he did a year or so ago? from what I hear his social media is still incredibly popular, but of course that doesn't mean much really when it comes to the fans, him having a push in the company etc..

So what are your thoughts on this, and why do you think that the demand for Ryder seemed to drop from the fans and from the company?

Yeah, I do kinda feel too the same in regards to that, it's just so weird how much of a demand he once had, and how that went down pretty quickly.

He's stil very young so yeah he will get a bigger push. Given the fact that his last push only resulted in a short U.S title reign.

But yeah him and mcintyre can still be credible upper mid card when they are in their 30's if they both get repackaged. Mcintyre possible ME scene but ryder no higher than upper mid card if lucky

Yeah, he'd need a total repackage really wouldn't he? I think Drew is well over due his big push though also, I'm hoping that this about him being repackaged is actually going to happen also.

Ryder would need some sort of edge I think, if he was to be repackaged, maybe a good heel persona for him, as with him being such a fan favourite, it would be a great heel turn to have.

Hopefully not. His desperation is embarrassing now. It was fun for a while, then he started using "comedy" in his videos to whinge and bitch about his position. Fucking cry baby. He had a good little go and has already overachieved. Now he seems to have some sort of sense of entitlement. "People like my videos, so push me, dammit!". No.

Most likely they won't but they really should considering the mid-card (well for me anyway) seems to be lacking enough baby faces to attack those two heel champs in Ambrose and Axel.

Zack will need at leas two things to ever get further: a new gimmick and the ability to not make his matches look like a script. He's had the same gimmick for years now, time to move on.

Not for a while and without a repackaging.

Just tag him with Hawkins again for the time being, it'll add to the tag division, give him a push up the card and give both of them something to do

I think he should actually GO BACK to that funny guido gimmick he had! Bring back the shades, headband, tan and the obnoxiously over-the-top promos! THAT'S the Ryder we love!

Maybe even give him an escort chick from the indies. Because right now he is not much of anything gimmick-wise. Just a stagnant depressed ghost image of Ryder who lost all his style and uniqueness he was once famous for.
