Ryback's response to a fan asking when he's returning to WWE has got fans talking

If there's one former WWE superstar who had the crowd in the palm of his hand at the peak of his powers, but was ultimately wasted, it has to be Ryback.

After a rebrand from his Nexus days as Skip Sheffield, the The Big Guy was born, and went on a long undefeated streak in 2012, mainly squashing jobbers.

He gained momentum though, and most importantly the backing of the WWE Universe, and he stepped up in the second half of the year to challenge for the WWE Championship.

Unfortunately for him though, CM Punk was still the title holder, and he would continue his 434-day reign by dismissing of Ryback several times, mainly due to screwjob-esque finishes.

He was still pushed though, and despite losing at WrestleMania 29 to Mark Henry, turned heel and started a feud with John Cena for the belt, but after being defeated in that feud, it was a long road to mediocrity that followed.

After a failed stint as a Paul Heyman guy in late 2013, a partnership with Curtis Axel, and unmemorable feuds with Bray Wyatt, Kevin Owens, Rusev and Kalisto [with a brief Intercontinental Championship reign in there], Ryback left WWE in 2016.

There's been no real clamour from the fans for his return, and he hasn't pulled up any trees on the independent circuit, so you can't blame the WWE for letting him go.

Ryback left WWE in 2016 after a lacklustre few years, and clearly has high expectations for himself should he return.

So when a WWE fan asked him whether or not he will return to the company - and if so, when - Ryback gave a rather baffling response.

Talk about a man thinking he's better than he is.

We don't actually know if Ryback is being serious here - there's every chance he could be - but some fans did not take too kindly to his words.

We would be very surprised to see the man Daniel Bryan refers to as 'The Ryback' back in the squared circle anytime soon - for Vince McMahon's promotion at least.
