• Former WWE Star Returning To Pro-Wrestling In 2019
Ryback parted ways with WWE two years ago. A few days after his announcement, WWE released him. Since then, “The Big Guy” hasn’t focused much on wrestling. Even though he worked in promotions like Global Force Wrestling and Revolution Pro Wrestling in the UK, he never really settled in any one of them.
From what we understand, Ryback has been focusing on repairing his body. For the last year or so, Ryback has not wrestled and instead focused on himself. His podcast and nutrition journey has taken up his time.
The former Intercontinental Champion has now released a video on YouTube titled “The Return of Ryback to TV in 2019 – Where will he go?”.
You can check out the video below:
While it is confirmed that Ryback will be returning to the ring next year, it is still unknown where he will compete. A return to WWE looks unlikely as The Big Guy isn’t on good terms with WWE. It is likely that he will join Impact Wrestling, ROH or NJPW.
We will keep you updated on Ryback’s status as we find more about it.
