Former WWE star Ryback recently took to his podcast, Conversation With The Big Guy, to talk about several professional wrestling topics. Ryback talked about Kenny Omega getting voted number one on the PWI 500 list, why a WWE guy should always be at the top of the list, and also congratulated Omega. Here are the highlights:
Kenny Omega being voted number one on the PWI 500 list:
“Honestly, it’s just a person or a group of people’s opinion [on the list] and that’s fine, Ryback said. “For as bad as people say that I am I was #13 one year I believe, so it means nothing. That is good that they made their list; it is their list.”
Why a WWE guy should always be at the top of the list:
“My opinion, and only my opinion is that they should always have a WWE guy at the top of their list. I say that because of the schedule. A guy like AJ Styles is going out there 4 nights a week, week after week, big time TV matches and pay per view matches, which is an entire different ballgame than anything else,” he said.
“Not to discredit anyone else but they are the most notable professional wrestling company in the world and the schedule, there is no other schedule like, so that has to be factored in, which it probably is to a certain degree, but again, all great names on the list, but if you take a group of 20 people they can have 20 different choices for who is number one, as I told you my reasons why I think it should be WWE guys at the top of the list because of the schedule and the demands.”
“But again, I don’t know all the factors that go into it, but congratulations to Kenny Omega,” Ryback said. “I have never met him I don’t believe, but everyone that I know has known him and says nothing but good things to say about him. He has had many good matches, so you can’t argue in that standpoint, but I just think that from the schedule standpoint WWE guys have it a little bit harder.”
