Ryback and Heyman, A Potentially Bright Future

WWE

Maybe it’s purely the hulking frame, but Ryback has done something to endear himself to Vince McMahon and the execs of the WWE. After a lackluster face run, awkward heel turn, and a surprisingly tolerable run as a solo bully-heel, Vince McMahon has given Ryback the gift of masterful promo creator, Paul Heyman. Ryback, for his perceived inability on the mic—he says that he has mic skills; we’re still waiting for proof—now has a way around something that many see as his weakness. With Heyman at the helm, Ryback never needs to say a word; he can continue snarling, breathing hard, and violently shaking, while Heyman does all the necessary talking. With Heyman at Ryback’s side, the WWE can actualize their vision of making Ryback a top heel, and Ryback can become the star that the WWE wants him to be.

Ryback and heyman Nevermind the mob-like kiss that Heyman gave to Ryback that many of us are still trying to wash from our memories, the pairing will work well. How often has Heyman been in bad pairings? This can be mutually beneficial for both parties involved. The pairing allows Heyman to explore another dimension of his on-screen character, and he’s at his best when he’s managing a stable. When he manages various wrestlers, he’s allowed to create diverse relationships with each respective wrestler and by extension, exhibit the impressive variety of his skills as a character. For Ryback, this eliminates the biggest perceived weakness in his character, speaking on the mic. Audiences and WWE Execs never felt he was effective on the mic and some people had even become resigned to his character. So the WWE decided to pair him with someone who many feel is the best talker in the business. Above all else, the addition of Heyman sparks interest in those who wrote off Ryback and view him as irrelevant and boring. He doesn’t boast the skill of Cesaro or Bryan, but his moveset, wrestling style, and pace have all been dictated by how the WWE wants him to be perceived as a big guy. In light of the constraints placed on him as an overtly muscular wrestler (and a few botches aside, including a famous botch on Heyman), Ryback isn’t that terrible in the ring. With a great manager and decent ring skills, Ryback can become watchable to the harshest of critics.

ryback 4With Heyman as the mouthpiece, Ryback’s character now has immense potential. Heyman’s character is so creative that he can come from an array of angles, bringing Ryback with him. Ryback can start to run rough-shod over the midcard while Heyman rationalizes Ryback’s actions. While Heyman touts his client, Ryback can continue to display a cognitive dissonance between his “hatred for bullies” and his browbeating behavior towards WWE staff, jobbers, and other wrestlers. Ryback could even become a key agent of Triple H’s regime, in a stunning twist of fate that would see Heyman and Triple H agreeing on-screen to work together. Ryback has been fortunate to receive Heyman as a manager, because Heyman can use Ryback’s look and reputation to create something reputable out of “the Big Guy.” Let’s hope that somehow they get this right.

    I totally agree because i think with Paul Heyman by Ryback’s side is a good idea. And is he will be a main eventer. Like he should have been.

  • Damn it! CM Punk won?!

    I hate bullies too Ryback.

  • Reverend Scurvy

    I’ll give Ryback some props on the mic. He’s WAY better than Axel. That having been said, it will be much better having Heyman doing all of the talking while Ryback stands there and smells a fart.

    • Chelsii?

      Ryback only cuts good promos when he’s reading off a teleprompter.

      • Maddox

        But you can’t deny, His pairing with Heyman is very good

        • Chelsii?

          Who knows? He might end up like Heidenreich.

          • Maddox

            Well lets watch and see, He isn’t gonna turn out like Lesnar or Punk but he is gonna have a lot of success with Heyman

          • Chelsii?

            I very much doubt it. Once this thing with Heyman fizzles out, he’ll be back in the same place again and hopefully they’ll sack him.

  • Trey Doss

    the obvious next paul heyman guy should be drew mcintyre

  • Macho Man

    Paul Heyman seems to be the last stop for wrestlers(Axel, Ryback)who are quickly becoming irrelevant. I’m thinking the internal WWE thought must be if Heyman can’t make you relevant and at least make WWE fans care enough about your charcter to boo you then your a lost cause. If that’s the case I look for Ryder, Santino, ALL of 3MB, to be joining Heyman soon. I say that only half joking!

  • Alejandro

    Lol.

  • freek

    Ryback is underrated. He should be main-eventing, as the big guy. We need a big guy having a long title reign soon. Reigns could also be that guy. It’s been too long.

    • Chelsii?

      Lol.

    • Mrs. Ambrose

      Yeah I feel like that they should put the WWE Championship on Ryback.

      • Chelsii?

        And watch the ratings just plummet through the Earth, in the middle of a hot Daniel Bryan and Orton feud? Good job. *clap*

        • Mrs. Ambrose

          I am not talking a about now dumba**. I am talking about when the Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton feud is over.

          • Chelsii?

            Keep dreaming, everyone knows the next one will be CM Punk vs Daniel Bryan til Wrestlemania (and probably a rematch at ER). They won’t repeat the same feud (if Punk wins) for the 3rd time in the span of 18 months. Brock Lesnar has more chance of being in the title scene than Ryback at this point.

          • Mrs. Ambrose

            Ok Chelsii whatever you say.He will be Championone day.Ryback Rules!!!!.

          • Chelsii?
          • Mrs. Ambrose

            Yes! he will be WWE Champion.

          • Chelsii?

            What?

          • Mrs. Ambrose

            He will be WWE Champion.

          • Chelsii?

            What?

          • Mrs. Ambrose

          • Chelsii?

            What b*tch?

          • Mrs. Ambrose

            The only person who is a b**** here is you.

          • Alejandro

            You should change your username to Mrs. Ryback since you keep having wet dreams about him.

          • Mrs. Ambrose

            This is why I can’t stand you. I do not have dreams about him dumba**. And I do not see nothing wrong being a Ryback fan. But I am also a Dean Ambrose fan.

          • Alejandro

            Don’t be a bully be a star, Mrs. Ryback.

          • Mrs. Ambrose

            I really really can’t stand you right now. Just like your girlfriend Chelsii.

          • Alejandro

            Love you too Mrs. Ryback <3

          • Mrs. Ambrose

            You make me sick.

          • Alejandro

            You make me laugh! LOL!

          • Mrs. Ambrose

            Loo in the mirror if you want to laugh.

          • Alejandro

            What’s loo? Don’t you mean look Mrs. Ryback?

          • Mrs. Ambrose

            I meant look ok. I know what you are trying to do. And it is noy going to work. Bye.

          • Alejandro

            Not* Bye Mrs. Ryback :-)

          • Mrs. Ambrose

            Ok I got a word wrong so what?

          • Alejandro

            Chelsii and I are not in a relationship. We’re just friends :-)

          • Mrs. Ambrose

            Ok so?.

          • Chelsii?

            Don’t worry, she’s just silly.

          • Alejandro

            I know lol.

          • Mrs. Ambrose

            Yeah go on and worship Chelsii like always.

          • Alejandro

            How do I always worship her? Just because I like her comments and agree with some of the things she says on here doesn’t make me worship her. Being silly as usual Mrs. Ryback.

          • Mrs. Ambrose

            I really can’t stand you and i am not being silly

          • Mrs. Ambrose

            And you and her always say I worship D.M.T go look in the mirror, you are doing the same thing. Just admit you worship Chelsii.

          • Alejandro

            How am I doing the same thing? Like I said Chelsii and I are cool with each other. You make it seem like we’re obsessed with each other and worship one another, when we’re not lol.

          • Mrs. Ambrose

            Yeah and me and D.M.T are cool with each other also LOL
            .

          • Alejandro

            No you just kiss his butt and tell him how he’s one of the smartest and sweetest wrestling fans in the internet when everyone knows he’s a hypocritical dumbass.

          • Mrs. Ambrose

            I don’t kiss his behind and he has a right to his own opinion. And he has the right to say what he wants.

          • Alejandro

            I know he has the right to say what he wants but at times he comes off as stupid and as a hypocrite when it comes to certain things.

          • Mrs. Ambrose

            So Chelsii says provocative stuff all of the time

          • Alejandro

            Yeah but at least she doesn’t deny saying the stuff she says. DMT says provocative stuff too and when we call him out on it he starts denying by saying he never said anything in the first place and starts his BS. I guarantee you Danielle if you weren’t too nice to him and if you call him out on some of the things he says, he would be insulting you and accusing you all over the place and you wouldn’t like it, would you? Don’t buy into his crap.

          • Mrs. Ambrose

            And nobody gets on her for saying what she says but you all agree with her when she is wrong for saying them.

          • Alejandro

            Yesterday The Devour of Dimensions told you he doesn’t like some of the stuff that Chelsii says and he defended you. And you didn’t believe him. When’s the last time someone else other than DMT defended you?

          • Mrs. Ambrose

            No one

          • Mrs. Ambrose

            The only ones who defended me was DMT and DOD.

          • Mrs. Ambrose

            You are the one who is silly

  • Kyle

    “Gayback” “Paul Gayman” wow you guys are so original and hilarious! Let me guess, you’re the same clowns chanting “Goldberg”? Go watch old Attitude Era VHS tapes you nerds.

    • Chelsii?

      I still have my VHS’ proudly, thank you.

  • TheHotDogKing

    its just nice to see them do something with ryback’s bully gimmick–and, unlike the rumor from a few weeks ago, it wasn’t somehow turning him face. let paul e. do the bulk of the mic work, with ryback dropping his one liners, and it could work. ultimately, axel, ryback or the aisle 12 security guy, it doesn’t matter. this feud is all about punk and heyman, and likely the other heyman guys are just keeping punk occupied until brock comes back for more. not saying axel and ryback are irrelevant….but in this feud, they are secondary. if they were more in a primary role, axel’s title would have been on the line at NOC
