Ryback recently participated in a Q&A on Reddit. During the Q&A, he gave his thoughts on the WWE and his life afterwards. Here are the highlights:
On Talent Being Paid Equally For Merch:
The winners have more MERCH as it is or are supposed to anyways so they get that extra perk.
On If He Regrets Leaving The WWE:
Best decision of my life.
On Whether WWE Wrestlers Should Speak Up:
Talent will be fired and lose out on opportunities for future money if they speak up, but if everyone did at once change will happen.
On The Decline In Q1 Earning:
I would imagine WWE stock would fall further if those who invested truly realized how the core inner workings of the company worked. I quit investing in them after experiencing and seeing how unorganized they truly are. The talent hold that place together, that’s a fact.
On His Current Health:
Have had 11 stem cell procedures for back and shoulder and two more in the summer. Business is my number one concern while getting healthy right now.” He recently added on Twitter how this could keep him out of the ring. A fan asked, “are you in any single promo wrestling at all? I am not wrestling at the moment. I’ve had 11 stem cell procedures and have two more this summer. I’m lucky I will get a second chance eventually, but right now my health and business are what I have to focus on.
On Whether He Struggled With His Decision To Leave WWE:
They were never going to let me do anything in the top spot ever, so leaving was easy.
