In a previous article, I wrote, "When Ryback says 'feed me more,' perhaps he means 'feed me something better.' Perhaps Ryback means 'feed me steak and potatoes, not mayonnaise sandwiches.' Perhaps Ryback means 'feed me top talent, not jabronis.'"

I wrote that a month ago, and Ryback still hasn't been fed real food (a feud with top talent).

Sure, Curt Hawkins is an improvement over two unknown jabronis, but is not a big improvement.

Here's a prediction for Ryback's next ten matches:

Ryback vs. Tyler Reks
Ryback vs. Hawkins and Reks
Ryback vs. Hunico
Ryback vs. Camacho
Ryback vs. Hunico and Camacho
Ryback vs. three jabronis
Ryback vs. three jabronis
Ryback vs. three jabronis
Ryback vs. three jabronis
Ryback vs. Hawkins, Reks, Hunico and Camacho

When will Ryback get real food?

Perhaps a better question is, can WWE afford to feed Ryback real food?

WWE reportedly wants Ryback to look dominant at all times (which probably means squashing opponents), but how can they do that without making his competition look weak?

The only way to do this is to continue feeding Ryback jabronis.

Can WWE let Ryback dominate guys like Alberto Del Rio, Big Show, Cody Rhodes, Damien Sandow, Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler, Kane and Tensai without burying them in the process?

You tell me.
