Feed him even more podcast topics! Since leaving WWE, Ryback has been one of the more prolific talkers in wrestling, offering his take on almost everything that happens in WWE or wrestling in general. On his “Conversations with the Big Guy” podcast, Ryback talks about most major stories in wrestling and that’s the case again today.
Ryback is back to talk about a variety of topics on his latest podcast. These include both independent wrestling issues, including, current goings on in WWE and a story that seemed to almost scare him. Here are some highlights with transcription courtesy of Wrestlinginc.com:
On CM Punk’s $1 Million to Wrestle in the UK
“Yeah, he didn’t put in there that the contract is for seven years and 34 tournaments! Yeah, I don’t know. I think he’s just happy. He’s probably jerking off that he is getting mentioned on the podcast right now. Sign me up! I want to be his first opponent over there. We can right all the wrongs. My only demand is one million and one dollars.”
And on a Potential Return to WWE
“True story. I got two phone calls today from Boca Raton, Florida. Boca Raton? I was at home doing something on one of them and I was at the gym on the other. And I forget what it was for. What was it for? I don’t know what it’s for. I think it was just some promotional thing, but in my head, I picture Vince in his Boca Raton home because he used to train, he has a house there or something, and he’s calling me and I’m like, ‘this should be an interesting voicemail’ and it’s not and I pick it up on the second one or the third one or whatever and they called a lot today, and it was some promotional thing for some vacation thing and I was just like, ‘Jesus Christ!’ No, not any time, not even. I wish them nothing but the best and all performers there. It’s just not happening right now.”
Opinion: I’m not big on a lot of what Ryback says as I can’t stand his attitude at times, but it’s almost always interesting to hear a take from someone who was actually working for the company fairly recently. Ryback never shies away from saying what he thinks and there’s usually something interesting in there somewhere.
