Social media has afforded WWE fans the chance to get closer to the Superstars they watch every week on TV and at live shows.
With the majority of wrestlers having official accounts on the likes of Twitter, the WWE Universe can now interact directly with the stars of the business. Unfortunately, the comments sent their ways aren't always positive, with anger often the go-to emotion.
And, whilst most Superstars choose to ignore the abuse they receive, Ryback opted to react to a particular aggressive message he received this week - the powerful wrestler taking the moral high ground with a perfect response.

The message that pricked Ryback's attention came from Twitter user @SteelCity615, and read as follows:
Ryback, rather than flying off the handle at the fan like his in-ring character may have done, actually remained fairly calm when teaching the angry fan a valuable life lesson.
Criticism is something that Ryback has had to become used to in recent years.
The 33-year-old wrestler, real name Ryan Allen Reeves, has taken heat from both the WWE fan base and fellow wrestlers over his wrestling style.
And, despite having a fairly successful run as Intercontinental Champion in 2015, Ryback has been unable to win over a certain section of the WWE Universe who will always see him as an inferior talent.
With that in mind, Ryback has to be given credit for handling the fan's online abuse this week with dignity. There are plenty of other Superstars on the WWE roster who would have failed to keep their cool.
