Ryback was, until just a few years ago, one of the biggest up-and-coming stars in the WWE, with a gimmick that was reminiscent of Goldberg and a look that comes straight from a Vince McMahon wet dream. All that is in the past now, however, as Ryback has now been added to the ever-growing list of wrestlers that are on the bad side of WWE management.
Since leaving the company in 2016 Ryback has become one of the most outspoken former employees that WWE has ever had, claiming that WWE treats their talent poorly and frequently discussing issues he had with his WWE contract. He even went as far as legally changing his name to “Ryback Reeves” (formally Ryan Reeves) so as to prevent the WWE from claiming copyright on his ring name.
If you ever thought that there may have even been the slightest of chances that Ryback could return to the WWE, he made sure to nix it in the bud with some recent controversial remarks about the position of females in the world of wrestling, basically ensuring that we won’t be seeing Ryback again anytime soon.
