Ryback is one such former WWE wrestler who does not back away from involving himself in a controversy. Time and again fans have seen him dig his way into a topic and get involved in a bitter war with another celebrity. Now that he has decided to set his eyes on The Rock, what better way than to talk about his own sports league that is struggling with various issues right now?

In a recent tweet, Ryback wrote, “It’s a shame the XFL didn’t get Allegiant Stadium for the Vipers. Locals and visitors don’t want to go to Cashman Field for a very good reason with its location in the city. St. Louis did it right though.” As the promotion struggles to get through with their planned idea, the former wrestler took to Twitter to publicize the issue even more.
