Ryan Reeves is a Big Guy and he loves to eat. He’s always saying, “feed me more” and pumping his arms up and down like an old-school WWF Hasbro action figure. Ryback has also never been one to keep his opinion to himself. He left WWE last year because he felt that jobbers and top guys should get the same pay and he has been very vocal about every topic he’s passionate about ever since. He also started his own podcast and he’s been using it as a means to vent his frustration with WWE.
On the most recent episode of his podcast, Reeves took on the subject matter of Tyson Kidd’s injury. He didn’t mix words in the slightest either. Reeves said that he recently saw Kidd and he looks to be in great shape and has very high spirits, which are good things. However, his positive comments quickly turned into hostility as he unleashed a barrage at Vince McMahon and Kevin Dunn.
“This guy loved wrestling and they took it away from him” Ryback said, “And, by the way, to take as long as they did to f****** apologize… I’m going to personally say it right here on the podcast: F*** you Vince! And f*** you Kevin for not being men and f****** apologizing to this human being that you ruined and Vince, you are a f****** piece of s***. For everything that you did that night, to f****** go out there and create that circumstance, and you should hate yourself when you look in the mirror”
Those are some of the harshest words that have ever been spoken by any ex-WWE employee while speaking about their former employer. Ryback didn’t stop his tirade there either as he then turned his focus to the Senior Director of Talent Relations, Mark Carrano by saying that he needs to be fired.
Tyson Kidd suffered a devastating neck injury in 2015 while taking a muscle buster from Samoa Joe during a dark match before a Monday Night Raw broadcast that some have said (including Bret Hart) that they didn’t have the time to prepare for. Kidd has been rehabbing his injury ever since but has found it to be a slow process to get back into the ring. He was even cut out of the most recent season of Total Divas with rumors spreading that WWE didn’t want to focus on him and his injury on television.
These are indeed really strong bridge burning comments from Ryback, but as it was stated before: Ryan Reeves has never been one to keep his opinion to himself.
