• Former Intercontinental Champion Says The Future Of Pro Wrestling Relies On Him
Former WWE Intercontinental Champion Ryback took to Twitter and claimed that the future of professional wrestling relies on him.
He left WWE 7 years ago in May of 2016 and hasn’t wrestled for another major promotion since, which makes people wonder why he would say something like that, other than putting himself over in a typical wrestling promo.
Here’s what The Big Guy tweeted:
“The future of pro wrestling relies on one man. One man whom has risen from the ashes to be rebuilt to hurt & destroy anyone who prevents him from saving the future of pro wrestling. The Real Ryback, Coming Soon…”

Ryback was destined to be ‘The Next Big Thing’ in 2012, when he achieved an impressive 38 match winning streak, that could’ve easily continued for at least another year, if WWE hadn’t put him into the main event too quickly, in order to replace an injured John Cena.
CM Punk was going to drop the WWE Championship to The Rock at the upcoming Royal Rumble 2013 PPV, so they had to end Ryback’s streak somehow in the main event of Hell In A Cell 2012, and they did so with the referee turning heel and screwing The Big Guy.
After the undefeated streak ended, the bad booking for the up-and-coming top star continued and his push in WWE eventually came to an end.
