5. Ryback Recalls Vince McMahon Apologizing To Him For A Bad Storyline
During a recent edition of “Conversation With The Big Guy” podcast, former WWE Superstar Ryback recalled Vince McMahon apologizing to him for a bad storyline. Below is the story:
“Remember they had me quit against The Miz when he was kicking my leg against the ropes? Go YouTube it. Road Dogg and Fit Finlay came up to me and I could tell by their expression, they were, like, laughing and nervous because there was no good way to say it. It was so out-of-the-blue. It was after ‘Feed Me More’ Ryback and just turning heel. I was getting ready to go into the Chris Jericho program and they wanted me… Miz kicking my leg in the corner where he puts your leg in the rope and starts kicking your thigh meat, where I say, ‘I quit, I quit, I quit!’ and they wanted me to look like a p***y. And I go, ‘well, that sounds like a s***ty idea.’
And they go, ‘no, no, no, no, no, but it’s Vince’s idea and Jericho is going to call you ‘Cryback’ and we want it to catch on. And I was like, ‘we were just doing this. How are we going to go from that to this, like, in a course of a week?’ And then, it was just one of those things that I wished I had not done in all seriousness. The following week, Vince apologized to me with me and him at the office and I don’t remember the details of it and everything, but it was I was talking to him about a Sheamus program, potentially, because me and Sheamus really, really wanted to have a program. And still to this day, he’s one of the guys I really, really wanted to have a program with long term.
Vince just said, ‘ah, I apologize. It was a bad idea.’ And it was literally the next week. It couldn’t have been planned any better. Like, he knew full well what he was doing with that. It was just absolute f***ing s*** and I wish I just never would’ve done that.
Again, the next week, how do you not know that it’s going to be a f***ing bad idea going from what we just did to that. He knows full well what he’s doing. It was s***.”
