• Ryback Comments On Fans Comparing Him To Goldberg & Ultimate Warrior
During a recent appearance on The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast, former WWE Superstar Ryback talked about how he feels about fans comparing him to the Ultimate Warrior and Goldberg.
Below is what Ryback said:
“People are always going to do that and the only thing you can do is go out and live your life and have your career. It is unfortunately that you are going to have people that they’re extremely loyal to the people that came before you and I’ve always said that and I never once tried to go out there and replicate being any of those guys. I have a bald head and I have big traps.
They did short matches and I do longer matches but that is the role that they played and I had played that role as well doing the shorter matches but that is just what people like to compare you to in the guys that came before you. In ten or fifth teen years if another guy comes along wearing an air-brushed singlet he might get compared to me.
It is just the way that the business is and you can’t really get too caught up in that because we are all our own individual person or wrestler at the end of the day and I think the fans that know our styles were completely different, the move sets are completely different and the characters are completely different.”
• Original Ladder Match Plan For WrestleMania 34 Revealed, Why Triple H Cancelled It
According to DirtySheets.Net, the Triple Threat Intercontinental Championship match between The Miz, Seth Rollins & Finn Balor at WrestleMania 34 was originally supposed to be a Ladder match, but Triple H asked the writers to nix the Ladder match stipulation.
Triple H felt this Intercontinental Title Ladder match would’ve been overshadowed by the NXT North American Championship Ladder match the previous night at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans and it might be an overkill as well (giving the fans two ladder matches in two nights).
