Ryback was involved in a lot of problems with WWE towards the end of his career there. As per ‘The Big Guy,’ WWE denied his claims to compensation for a botched ankle injury among others.

He claims that he had a lot of lucrative opportunities outside WWE. However, the company refused to let him probe into them.

Ryback was an absolute beast when he first joined WWE. He was fed the best superstars in the business and he steamrolled all of them. He was on the hot path to being the WWE Champion, when it all started to go wrong.

Then, WWE Champion CM Punk was in a feud with him and didn’t quite like Ryback’s style of wrestling. Informing the authorities that he no longer wanted to wrestle with his opponent, WWE canceled the storyline.

This abrupt ending saw Ryback’s false fall straight out of the sky. The long descent over the next few years saw the once-dominant Superstar become fodder for the developing ones.

Ryback finally left WWE in 2016 after a series of altercations with the company. To this day, he maintains his bitterness towards his former employers.
