Ryback has been gone from WWE television screens since April but he has steadily kept himself in the public eye in a combination of ways.

Apart from writing a motivational book and taking lucrative independent bookings, the Big Guy - who just legally changed his name to Ryback Reeves - has also started up his own podcast 'Conversations with the Big Guy'.

During the third instalment of the show the former Intercontinental champion detailed what it was like living with another former WWE superstar - and fellow former IC champion - Wade Barrett.

Both men were climbing the ranks in NXT when they began living together to spread the cost, and Ryback shared a funny story that suggested the British grappler didn't always like him.

"Funny story about me and Wade is he thought I was like the biggest asshole ever. I was just so miserable and negative. And he was like a new hire and he was coming in. And we didn't have computers and we'd both have to use the computer in the office there," Reeves explained.

"And it was like, 'hey, how are you doing?' 'Good. How are you?' 'Good.' And, like, that was it and it wasn't until years later, in FCW, when we kind of were getting ready in the same area and he realized I was nothing like [that]. I was just in a really low point in my life. And we became great friends."

Ryback often credits the book 'The Secret' with helping turn his life around and we're sure he's got a fair few more secrets left to spill from his time with the WWE.
