Ever since he made the announcement last week that he would be taking time off from the WWE due to contract disagreements, many fans have speculated that Ryback will not be with the company for much longer.

When the annual 'Black Friday' came around for the company, the WWE universe expected The Big Guy's name to be revealed as one of the superstars departing. Damien Sandow, King Barrett, Santino Marella, Cameron, Hornswoggle, Alex Riley, El Torito and Zeb Colter were all let go, but Ryback's name wasn't included.

However, just because his name wasn't included in Friday's culling, doesn't mean his future with the company is safe and he is getting the contract he wants. The recent movement of his products in the WWE online store could suggest his time at the company might be coming to an end.

If you visit the WWE online store and go to Ryback's page, you'll find that all of his items have been discounted by almost 50%. There's usually only two reasons for something like this to happen; one being the said superstar will soon be receiving new merchandise, or two being the said superstar will soon being leaving the company.

Judging by the recent situation with the former Intercontinental Champion, it's more than likely to be the latter situation of the two.

Ryback wrote a long blog post last week commenting on his current position within the WWE. While he said the contract disagreements wasn't to do with money, he is taking a stand over the difference in pay between winners and losers of matches.

With WWE and sports entertainment as a whole being predetermined, competitors already know which one of them will win and who will lose when they square off in the ring. With that being said, one person still has to lose and damage his reputation for the winner to win and be pushed, yet within the company, losers aren't rewarded for this and aren't paid the same for doing their job.

As every day passes, it looks more and more unlikely that Ryback will remain part of the WWE. The company appears to have already punished superstars for supporting The Big Guy and his cause, as Cameron came out to show her support on Twitter after the 34-year-old released his blog post. She was released by the company last Friday for what many people believe to be that reason.

The recent movement of his products in the WWE store could be an indication that his time with the company that he has called home for the over ten years is coming to an end.
