Former WWE star Ryback continues to talk about the potential of joining AEW (All Elite Wrestling). His name continues to come up when fans speculate who could join the newly launched promotion and it makes sense. He’s a good wrestler who the fans can get behind.
As he has stated in the past, he must get healthy before making his next move in the pro wrestling space. The former WWE star needs to get stem cell procedures and a shoulder scope done. Once those things are taken care of, then he will move forward with his wrestling career.
While speaking with The Ring Report, he brought up how the presence of AEW is a good thing for the pro wrestling business as it needs competition.
“I think it’s great having competition with All Elite Wrestling,” Ryback said. “I’m very happy for everyone involved. I think it’s good for professional wrestlers to have options and there’s different promotions that are doing a lot better now because of the visibility social media provides so it is one of those things where you might not have to work for WWE to have a successful career or to make a good amount of money.”
After having a successful run in the WWE that ended once he decided to depart from the company in 2016, Ryback now works the independent circuit in addition to hosting his own podcast, Conversation With The Big Guy.
Ryback continued by stating, “I hope they get a great TV deal and there’s nothing bad to say about All Elite Wrestling. I want them to be as successful as humanly possible because it just helps professional wrestling and they seem to have a good infrastructure in place a) financially and b) having guys like Cody. I’ve known him for a very long time and I know his brain and he’s very motivated and having The Young Bucks around – I’ve never met those guys personally – but I feel like they want to make this work and it seems that they’re getting the attention and the buzz and that’s a great thing.”
