SmackDown tapings took place last night in Memphis and the WWE debuted a new look for one superstar Ryback.

The former Intercontinental Champion took part in a match against Erick Rowan during the show, and his new look could be a sign of things to come.

Rather than come to the ring in his singlet as he usually does, The Big Guy wrestled the Wyatt Family member in black trunks, as seen in the tweet and Instagram post below.

Many members of the WWE Universe realised Ryback looked rather similar to Goldberg, who had close to the same build as him during his time in WCW and the WWE, and are very happy with the new look. Some fans are pleased he has got rid of the singlet as well.

When the WWE decides to give a superstar a new look, it is usually a sign that they're about to receive another push, which would be great for the 34-year-old as we enter WrestleMania season.

His Goldberg-esque look could be a sign he is going to go on a bit of an undefeated streak or a pursuit of one of the titles, probably either the United States Championship or the Intercontinental Championship again for the time being.

It is doubtful however that the WWE will go back to the days where Ryback was in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship picture a couple of years back until they find out if he can attract a fan base with his new attire.

His muscular build certainly helps, and with the WWE's current injury problems, the idea isn't as far-fetched as people might think. He just needs to attract a bigger fan support and improve upon his mic skills.
