• Former WWE Superstar Ryback has been vocal about his opinions on his former company since his departure in 2016. Recently, he accused Triple H of altering match outcomes to undermine him.

On a recent episode of “The Ryback Show,” Ryback claimed that Triple H changed the script of one of his matches to ensure he was defeated. Ryback, a former Intercontinental Champion, alleged that he was initially slated to win a six-man tag team match against The Wyatt Family. However, according to Ryback, Triple H used his influence to change the outcome, leading to him being “destroyed” instead.

Ryback detailed his experience, asserting that he had firsthand knowledge of Triple H’s actions. He recounted a segment involving himself and The Wyatts leading up to the Payback pay-per-view, where he was set to team with Kane and Big Show. Initially, Vince McMahon had planned for Ryback to win against The Wyatts in a six-man tag match on SmackDown.

“Hunter’s tough. I’m telling you I’ve experienced this. I’m just giving you insight of what I know. I know the monster that is Triple H, of how he is. There was a segment with me and the Wyatts where, this was before the Payback pay-per-view with me, Kane, and Big Show, where I eventually went over because Vince was there. I was supposed to go over the Wyatts. It was a six-man tag match on SmackDown.”

Ryback explained that the situation changed when Vince McMahon was absent from SmackDown. He was informed by the creative team the night before that he would be winning against Bray Wyatt or another member of The Wyatts. However, upon arriving at the show without Vince McMahon present, Ryback alleged that Triple H modified the plan to have him dominated by The Wyatts.

“Vince was not at SmackDown. I was told the night before I got sent by creative, by the writers. Blah blah blah blah blah, you’re going over on so and so on Bray [Wyatt] or whoever it was at the time with that leading up to all this. I get to the show, Vince isn’t there. Hunter had it changed to me getting destroyed by the Wyatts just to show like this is what he does.”
