For any internet “smart” fan, it was hardly a surprise when Jinder Mahal rose to the main event of SmackDown Live and eventually won the WWE Championship from Randy Orton at Backlash. It had been rumored for weeks that the WWE and Vince McMahon wanted to make a serious business push into India, the home of 1.3 billion people. McMahon felt it would be much easier to push things like merchandise and WWE Network subscriptions if the company had a champion that the people of India could identify with. Thus, Jinder Mahal’s championship reign was born.
Ryback certainly has been vocal since his WWE contract expired earlier this year, and his podcast, Conversations With The Big Guy, have quickly evolved into a regular forum for Ryback to expound upon how WWE prevented him from becoming the biggest star in the company, as well as any other grudges he might have. This week, John Cena has become the target of his ire, as the Big Guy seems to feel that John Cena has spent his career standing in the path of every single wrestler trying to make it to the top in WWE, especially Ryback.
Former WWE Superstar Ryback has been fairly active since his WWE contract expired recently, and one of the things he’s apparently decided to put his time into is a podcast called “Conversations With The Big Guy”. In his debut episode, Ryback said a couple things that we just felt had to be noted, for our own amusement if nothing else.
