WrestleMania 32 was graded as an average show by the majority of wrestling fans, with most pointing out the Intercontinental Championship ladder match, the Women's Championship match, and the Hell in a Cell match as the highlights of the show.
Not all the WWE titles were featured on the main card, as the United States Championship clash between Kalisto and Ryback was on the kickoff preshow, alongside a 10-Diva tag match and a tag team match between The Usos and The Dudley Boyz.
When Ryback was asked by Dubai radio personality Myles about his match against The King of Flight on the preshow and if it was still a good moment, he showed some disappointment.

He said: "To be quite honest, absolutely not. The last three WrestleManias have not been great. I'm not going to go into a lot of detail on that but it would've been nice to have been on the show where both of us belong. The US Title definitely belongs on there. Hopefully next year, if there is a next year, that it will be a better experience."
Ryback has only been on the main card at WrestleMania once since joining the WWE, that was at WrestleMania 29 when he wrestled against Mark Henry and lost. The other times he has competed at the show was on the preshow (WrestleMania 30, 31, and 32). He didn't win those matches either.

There was a time where he was one of the most promising superstars in the WWE, as during 2012 and 2013, the 34-year-old was involved in several WWE Championship matches with CM Punk and John Cena. However, he never went on to win the title himself.
Ryback spoke about the opportunities in the main event and he hopes to prove that he belongs there once more, but with so many people competing for the same spot, he revealed that sometimes the hard work doesn't always pay off.
He said: "I've heard in this business hard work doesn't always pay off. So maybe The Big Guy has to go find another world where that does pay off. But you work really, really hard at something and you dedicate yourself, and you sometimes have to be told you're somewhere else.
"That's a tough pill to swallow time and time again but I've never stopped believing in myself and I never will. Next year should undoubtedly be a big year for The Big Guy."
The main problem with Ryback is that he appears not to be able to connect with the WWE Universe anymore. He's trying to improve, we've seen it with a number of gimmicks he has run with since being part of the WWE, but his promos don't feel organic, and that's one of the main things that lets him down.
Ryback has been rumored to injure several superstars he wrestled with as well, so he must be more careful in the ring. If he was able to improve on both of these things, he could excel. He has the look already, he just needs to work on the finer details to become a better WWE superstar.
