Former WWE Intercontinental Champion Ryback recently took to Twitter and addressed Booker T’s negative comments about him from the WCW Legend’s weekly ‘Hall of Fame’ podcast.
Here’s what Ryback tweeted:
“Hey @BookerT5x you are better than that, at least I thought you were.
It’s beyond obvious where you get your paycheck and if you want to be an actual man then pick up your phone or talk publicly with me.
Stop running your mouth on something you’re obviously clueless on. Don’t worry either, I’m not trying to shake your f**king hand.
I’ve heard enough from you though and just STFU on something you’re not involved in.”
The 5-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion then invited The Big Guy to come to his show and speak with him in a LIVE interview.
Here’s what Booker T tweeted:
“Hey @Ryback you want to talk about everything? You have a public invite to join me on my show LIVE. Let me know when you wanna talk!”
But the 2-time WWE Hall of Famer then changed his mind just a few moments later and sent yet another Tweet, that read:
“The invitation is rescinded for @Ryback. Making demands for you to come on my show says a whole lot. You don’t really want to have a conversation.”

Ryback was destined to be ‘The Next Big Thing’ in 2012, when he achieved an impressive 38 match undefeated streak, that could’ve easily continued for at least another year, if WWE hadn’t put him into the main event too quickly, in order to replace an injured John Cena.
CM Punk was going to drop the WWE Championship to The Rock at the upcoming Royal Rumble 2013 PPV, so they had to end Ryback’s streak somehow in the main event of Hell In A Cell 2012, and they did so with the referee turning heel and screwing The Big Guy.
After the undefeated streak ended, the bad booking for the up-and-coming top star continued and his push in WWE eventually came to an end.
