Funny Reason Behind Triple H Not Being A Fan Of Zack Ryder & Likely Not Getting Pushed

Triple H HHH Hunter Hearst Helmsley - Intercontinental Champion

• Old School WWF Tag Team Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday

Today would have been the 56th birthday of old school WWF Tag Team Wrestler “The Gigolo” Jimmy Del Ray (Real name: David Ferrier).

The highlight of his Professional Wrestling career was certainly teaming with “The Doctor of Desire” Tom Prichard in SMW Smoky Mountain Wrestling and the World Wrestling Federation as ‘The Heavenly Bodies’.

After he left the WWF, he wrestled for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling under the name ‘Jimmy Graffiti’.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY & R.I.P.

• Funny Reason Behind Triple H Not Being A Fan Of Zack Ryder & Likely Not Getting Pushed

Brad Shepard recently revealed during a podcast that he was told a long time ago that Triple H isn’t a fan of current RAW wrestler Zack Ryder because Zack doesn’t look “tough”.

So Triple H not liking Ryder could very well be one of the reasons why Ryder isn’t being pushed.

Since Shepard was told about this a long time ago, it was probably correct at that point.

But if you look at Ryder now, he’s a well built Heavyweight.

So the funny thing here is that a Heavyweight guy like Ryder is not being pushed because he’s still not considered “tough”, while Cruiserweight guys like Finn Balor, Daniel Bryan, Shinsuke Nakamura and more are being pushed (even look at NXT, most of the guys Triple H is pushing in WWE’s developmental territory are Cruiserweights).

All we can say is Ryder not being pushed has a lot more to do than just an opinion on him from years ago.
