Ryback is taking some time away from WWE, and the reason why is different depending on who you’re talking to. Some say he’s frustrated with creative and needs a break. Some say he’s quitting. Some say he’s injured and needs time off for surgery.
Today, Ryback posted a “thank you” video from a hospital bed, and … nope, we still don’t know what the hell’s going on with him. In a wonderful, delirious promo that echoes the great Internet video tentpole ‘David After Dentist,’, The Big Guy:
– refers to himself as a “four-time WWE Champion,” which is only true if you count Slammy Awards as WWE Championship title reigns
– explains how much he loves hooking up with mothers
– recounts a conversation he had with Babe Ruth, who has been dead for almost 70 years
– possibly dies (?) trying to say his catchphrase
It’s delightful and confusing, and the only way it would’ve been better is if Curtis Axel had been bedridden beside him.
