On his newest podcast, Ryback gave a 35-minute rebuttal to Mark Henry’s response to him calling the enterprise faux. Click on right here to learn what Ryback and Henry stated beforehand to one another.
Right here is an excerpt: “I want, with Mark, and we’ve heard him speak. I like Mark. He talks about being a mentor to the expertise and a coach. He’s within the G.O.A.T. of weight lifting and I’ve seemed as much as Mark in that side of issues for a lot of, a few years. When you adopted me and watched my tales, I’d really feel as a peer to anyone who used to assist put the man’s straps on as a result of his shoulders had been so shot earlier than we might work, that we might be on a adequate relationship the place, when that tweet received spun a distinct approach which was by no means supposed, which I apologize to the individuals it offended, the wrestlers, particularly those who got here earlier than me. I’m very respectful of them and every little thing that’s gone into the enterprise that received it right here to today.
Why wouldn’t Mark simply DM me and say, ‘Hey, can we speak. I wish to have a dialog with you in regards to the tweet.’ It didn’t should get tied into what’s happening with WWE and with him citing these items that’s not true. That, I feel, is what I’m most damage over and I put out my assertion and the extra I listened to it, I listened to it a number of occasions the night time I put out these tweets, and I’m mad. It damage as a result of I used to be like, what the f**ok is happening? I talked to many skills the place they go, what the f**ok is happening? Is he WWE workplace now and they’re utilizing him for this? I want he would have simply had a non-public cellphone name in regards to the matter earlier than we went that route. Jim Cornette, I count on that from Jim. Mark, I assumed we had been higher, realizing me and dealing with me sufficient, that this might have been dealt with in another way the place it didn’t have to get to this. I’ve to elucidate every little thing so everyone understands all of it. Booker T put out his feedback. I assumed Booker did a incredible job of expressing, his, and I can see and listen to in his voice the frustration of utilizing the phrase faux and the way an outsider would use it, however he by no means took any private pictures or something of that matter.
Mark is revered and I don’t wish to flip this into me vs Mark. It’s me vs WWE. It was by no means me bashing the wrestling trade. I do know with this authorized stuff happening and they don’t seem to be doing effectively within the Ryback trademark. What a shi**y factor to spin it that I’m tough and harmful. Let’s put this on the market as this man is able to come again with 16 stem cells to beat this 5 disk fusion and shoulder substitute. I don’t perceive that and why we didn’t deal with this in a extra, behind the scenes approach. I feel these days, one other level I wish to carry up is each podcast exposes professional wrestling together with theirs every single day. It’s 2021. The phrase props has been utilized by individuals like Bruce Prichard who has used it. I’ve heard totally different trainers, and I’m not going to call everyone’s identify. I’ve heard individuals within the enterprise seek advice from them as props. All championships are props and it’s not being utilized by me in a damaging approach. That’s what they’re however that’s not saying that the championships don’t have which means. They do. It’s not belittling the working and the blood, sweat, and tears it takes to win that. However each UFC championship are props. It’s enterprise advertising and marketing 101. You begin an organization after which you may have these championships, or props as you wish to name them. It doesn’t imply they don’t imply something. That’s only a identify for them on high of it. Typically, like in Mark’s case, I perceive why Mark additionally might have taken it so personally getting fu**ked with lots throughout his profession and the bulls**t he put up with and the time on the highway that he put in.
Large Present and Mark Henry are two particular points of interest that ought to have been protected their total careers. He’s one of many rarest human beings that most likely ever existed…We’ve heard the story on how he lastly received to the championship with the Corridor of Ache however the lead into that to be put within the ring and Vince fu**king with him and folks fu**king him and never respecting him and him shedding his sh*t and going off and saying f**ok it and eager to give up. They put him in that title match. All I ask Mark to grasp is realizing my story and the way necessary that was to me and with my targets on the brief time span I feel I had with my accidents with every little thing, that if Mark had that match the place he exhibits as much as the constructing they usually lastly put the championship on him, which they most likely ought to have a few years prior and he received there they usually stated you’re shedding. He loses and he does his job as all of us do as a result of we’re all professionals and his profession involves an finish shortly thereafter due to a career-ending damage and he has to depart. I wouldn’t name Mark’s profession a failure as a result of he confirmed as much as the constructing and the promoter and the individuals in cost didn’t have him profitable the championship. That’s what I took just a little little bit of a problem with and took it private the place he tried to name me a failure as a result of there’s lots of people who’ve given every little thing to this enterprise, Corridor of Famers, legends, which have by no means received the championship.
I can see if I had a purpose of profitable the championship. I used to be very vocal of that purpose. That didn’t occur, so in that sense, are you able to say I failed? Sure. However it’s essential perceive the circumstances that brought about me to stroll away and this complete factor has gotten far uglier than it ever ought to have been…I feel it’s a must to perceive that championships have totally different which means for various individuals within the enterprise. We’ve heard individuals like Scott Corridor say, and I’m not getting the numbers appropriate, however, ‘Would you relatively make 10 million a yr for 10 years and by no means win a championship or make $100,00 a yr for 10 years and be the champ the entire time?’ I feel you’re going to search out wrestlers that can say they need the $100,000 and the championship, and I feel you will need the 10 million as a result of all of us have totally different mindsets on how we method the enterprise…I’ve adopted the mindset that no matter function they requested me to play, I’m going to present it every little thing I received. Whether or not I’ve all of the momentum and it is sensible for me to go on the market and ‘win’, or if we’re going to make three new predominant eventers with The Defend, if I’m going to place over John Cena on the time, or I’m going to place over Mark Henry in a match at WrestleMania and fall on my face and appear to be a failure, echo the phrases of Vince, which he did, that I’m going to go on the market and do it, even when I don’t agree with it as a result of that’s what you do as knowledgeable and I’ve at all times achieved that. That to me is what I took just a little little bit of offense over with Mark saying that I used to be a failure…There’s a motive why they (WWE) wished my social media which is prospering in different places they don’t have management of and it is a very actual subject. I discover it very coincidental that this received tied right into a wrestling trade factor when it’s not. It’s me vs WWE and whether or not you thought the joke was humorous or not, everybody goes to have their opinion on it, however you gotta perceive, this isn’t a man who’s new to the enterprise. I’m going to level this out. Mark defended Ronda Rousey. When Ronda did her complete faux factor with the enterprise, and it’s on their present. So it’s a must to ask your self, why did he take that so private, however from a man 16 years within the enterprise, who’s received a championship match he was in, a match Mark was in with me on the Elimination Chamber, that he failed to say that. Why is that his tackle this and that wasn’t his tackle that. That’s all I’m going to say. And once more, with the non-public stuff with this, this might all be hashed out with a cellphone name and Mark is aware of that.”
