Following his return to WWE television on the SmackDown brand last April, Ryback has been tearing through everyone in his way, as the dominant superstar is up to taking on two opponents in recent weeks.
While it’s hard to argue with the physical ability of Ryback, there are many WWE fans who continue to chant former World Champion Goldberg's name due to their similar wrestling styles during the imposing superstar’s matches. Ryback has also been compared to Rob Van Dam due to their similar wrestling attires.
Here are the details in an upcoming interview with WWE Magazine (via WrestlingInc.com) on how Ryback feels about the comparisons between him, Goldberg and Van Dam.
"All the Rob Van Dam comparisons are fine with me because we actually have the same airbrush guy. I feel like I'm a colorful person in terms of my personality and what people are going to see over time. The plain black look just didn't cut it for me. It worked for Austin, it worked for Goldberg, but I'm not Austin or Goldberg—I'm Ryback."
Even though I'm starting to like to the weekly squash matches on Raw and SmackDown each week, the WWE really needs to get Ryback out of these handicap matches and into matches with serious competition.
After some time taking on either superstars from Raw or SmackDown, it would be a good idea for the WWE to have someone take the United States Championship off Santino Marella, and in turn, have Ryback come in and take him out for his first title in the company.
If the WWE did go in that direction, the chants during Ryback matches would likely not die down as the United States Championship was the first title win for Goldberg during his run in WCW in 1998.
With Ryback continuing to destroy weaker opponent after weaker opponent each week, do you think the superstar can be a success when he finally has matches against actual WWE superstars?
