One night after their huge Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event the WWE managed to maintain the positive momentum on Monday Night Raw by bringing back one of literally their biggest superstars.

Making his first appearance after several months away several months, Ryback announced his return to the WWE arena by defeating Bo Dallas in front of an enthusiastic San Antonio crowd.

Making amends 

The big man then opened up about regrets over previous character decisions as well as hyping up his future role in the WWE.

"I became a guy that I wasn't proud of and it to be quite honest I was a bad person and I was very unfair to the fans."

Ryback had been out of action for a couple of months after tweeting to fans that he would be "going away for a while to get some stuff fixed", and while his surprise return this week seems to have gone down well with much of the WWE Universe it is safe to say his persona prior to his self-imposed time out had drawn criticism from many fans.

And the WWE superstar, speaking in the aftermath of Raw, moved to explain regrets over the way he had treated fans during that period:

"i've been through a lot of troubles here in the WWE...I came in like a wrecking ball with my sights on the WWE championship and I fell short on multiple occasions," explained a clearly emotional Ryback.

"I became a guy that I wasn't proud of and it to be quite honest I was a bad person and I was very unfair to the fans."

You can check out the full post-Raw interview at the bottom of the article but Ryback is certainly setting his sights high after returning from an injury that he claims impacted his performance, and mood, for over seven months prior to his August departure.

"I told myself I'm never going to be like that again the WWE Universe needs a hero right now more than ever and I know that Ryback the big guy is that guy and I'm coming back full force."

Good move?

Ryback began life in the WWE as a babyface, feuding with The Shield and CM Punk before turning into a nemesis of not only the WWE's biggest hero talent but also the WWE crowd themselves

That change up didn't go down too well for those involved and so it's no surprise that he has opted for a more positive image on his return. But with other big man talents such as Cesaro and Rusev still waiting for their big break some have already questioned whether Ryback's comeback has now pushed them back down the pecking order.
