Ryback stated on Twitter that WWE's legal department reached out to him a few months ago about a proposed settlement in regards to the Ryback trademark.
His tweet states, "Over 5 months ago @wwe legal reached out to propose a settlement, as they’re going to lose the RYBACK TM. They want past rights and for me to sign a NDA. They’ve repeatedly tried telling me to stop talking about @VinceMcMahon and the truth with @wwe. You must right all wrongs."
He added, "The one thing people need to understand is they threatened my job in 2012 with a multi million dollar malpractice suit I had for my ankle injury. They told me if I dropped it they would take care of me and all would be forgotten from the past. I trusted them and they lied."
Ryback has been very vocal about WWE and among other things, has claimed that the company has had a hand in having his Twitter account reach restricted. Ryback also said some very unpleasant things about Vince McMahon's late mother.
We should note that the tweets listed below are Ryback's statements and the talks about the settlement have not been confirmed by WWE.
