WWE: Ryback has been a terrible Intercontinental Champion

Published 7 Comments

With all due respect, I accept that Ryback is the 'Big Guy' and he surely has all the potential in the world.

He has everything a wrestler should have, but he seriously lacks something that a Champion should possess. The human wrecking ball somehow lost his rhythm after becoming the IC Champion.

There has been intense competition in the mid-card these past few months but WWE kept their money on Ryback and made him the Intercontinental Champion. This title was held by many legends over the years and do you think this is the way it should be represented?

Ryback the Rescuer?

With Daniel Bryan's abrupt departure, the title was vacated and then it was Ryback who took the torch from Yes man.

Ryback was down with a Staph infection and his return is nothing but ineffective and banal. At SummerSlam, he had an IC title match that lasted less than 10 minutes.

Why does the company engage Ryback with stale characters like Big Show and The Miz? It is not even good for business let alone best.

Ryback seriously lacks the charisma of a Champion and it would be wise if WWE atleast tries to project him as a heel. This babyface angle isn't working and you can't expect a mid-card leader to disappoint us continuously.

In my opinion, the WWE Universe is not behind him and it looks like he is on a journey without destiny. All this said, turn him a heel or engage him in interesting matches!

Don't drag this forever and establish the 'Big Guy' as a 'Big Stale Champion'. Feed him more! Don't make him boring!
