Since he became a part of John Cena's Survivor Series team back in 2014, Ryback has been climbing up the ranks in WWE.
The "big guy" was fired by The Authority last month before he was rehired when John Cena, with the help of Sting, overcame the Authority again just before The Royal Rumble.
Since then Ryback has been a part of a storyline with The Authority, or mainly Big Show, Kane and Seth Rollins. And this week Ryback spoke to the Miami Herald about his time in WWE so far.
He said: “In anything in life, there’s going to be ups and downs, but my time in WWE thus far has been amazing. Each and everyday I get to show up to my job. I love it. I’m very thankful. Everyday is a different opportunity, a different challenge, and I love that.”
Ryback made his presence known in WWE when he became a Paul Heyman guy and entered a feud with CM Punk. Ryback also talked about his time working under Heyman.
He said: “Being with Paul Heyman, if you look back at the wrestling footage throughout the years, he’s been around for a very long time, and he’s been around a lot of the greats. So for Paul to want to align himself with me and be with me was a great compliment to me.
"It was a lot of fun. At that stage of my career and where I was at, I always liked being out there by myself to speak and say what I want to say and not have a mouthpiece, but it was a great learning experience for me, seeing how Paul approached promos and how he spoke to people and controlled the crowd, because he is truly very gifted in that aspect.”
Ryback has spoken many times about how his time with Paul Heyman didn't work out the way he expected it too. But after he teamed up with Curtis Axel, it seemed Ryback had finally got his WWE career back on track.
Currently Ryback doesn't have a match scheduled for this weekend's Fastlane Pay-per-view, but it is likely that a six-man tag match could take place this Sunday pitting Seth Rollins, The Big Show and Kane up against Dolph Ziggler, Ryback and Erick Rowan.
