Throughout his Corridor of Fame podcast, WWE Corridor of Famer Booker T commented on Ryback’s now-deleted tweet about Vince McMahon and his late mom.
Booker had this to say about Ryback:
“While you discuss somebody you do not know, that for me is taking it to one other degree. [saying] one thing personally simply silly, nasty, no matter you need to name it. mine too [he’s] Wanting for somebody to blame Okay, I haven’t got any private points or points with Ryback or something like that, however I am not somebody who’s hiding beneath a rock or something or scared to method a scenario like this right here. mine is that this. Ryback did not make it to WWE, did he? That is a reality, he did not make it in WWE.”
Booker then requested what Ryback did earlier than WWE and co-host Brad Gilmore stated he was discovered at Robust Sufficient. Booker stated: “Did he do something on the unbiased scene or wherever related sufficient that he was handled in a different way than anybody else who went by means of the WWE present? I imply, personally, I do not know wherever he’s been. Apart from after WWE, the place has Ryback gone and finished the rest the place it’s been related sufficient that we will say ‘Ryback, man, he ought to have been an enormous star, perhaps they need to have given him an even bigger probability? ‘. A variety of these guys like Drew McIntyre have fallen down and gotten up and gone out and reinvented themselves as a result of on the time it did not work. However they did not cry ceaselessly about not being profitable in an organization. And me personally, that is what I see on this greater than something. Crying. Go do it someplace within the enterprise wherever an organization seems at you and says, ‘Man, that is the man we wish to push’ on prime of crying for WWE. If I cried for going to jail each 5 minutes and because the system did not give me an opportunity. Man, I can solely think about the place he would be. I imply, it’s plenty of wasted time that this man is submitting to. It is wonderful. You already know what I imply? Like I stated, go do one thing someplace and then somebody may guess and say perhaps they did one thing improper by letting this man go. Then again, while you exit and discuss this firm, it’s going to be laborious for different corporations to even need to cope with you as a result of they could suppose, ‘Man, this man can do the identical factor to us if we let him go.’ ‘ So it’s like somebody reduce off their nostril to mess with their face. It would not make sense so far as I am involved.
Booker then addressed Ryback’s resolution to delete his tweet, regardless of saying that he stands by what he stated:
“Eradicating it says quite a bit about you. It’s best to have give up if that is how you actually felt. However perhaps you may have to get a job someday and somebody could learn that tweet about you speaking about somebody’s mother, who you’ve got by no means met earlier than or interacted with earlier than in your life, however have shaped an opinion about her the identical manner. extra unfavorable manner. Do we wish to have something to do with such an individual? That’s the query you’ll have to cope with for the remainder of your life. At any time when he goes someplace, to do something with anybody. And that is only a reality.”
Booker additionally questioned why he legally modified his title from Ryan Reeves to Ryback and stated he would not respect it:
“Why would I need to have any WWE memorabilia and carry a reputation like Ryback in the event you really feel so unfavorable about what this firm has finished to you? That says quite a bit so far as I am involved. Me personally, I haven’t got plenty of respect for somebody like that, you already know, me personally. If I am going to say one thing like that, about somebody, I’ve to despise him quite a bit and it’s not going to be due to work or something like that or as a result of they did not give me a push or something like that. However an individual who says one thing like that, I simply haven’t got a lot respect for him. The factor is that if he noticed him within the face, he would say: ‘I haven’t got a lot respect for you, if I do.’ Significantly, that is the type of individual I’m. I do know that if I ever bumped into Ryback once more in any manner, he would not get a handshake from me and me saying, ‘Hey, what’s up Ryback.’ Ryback is on the checklist so far as I am involved.”
Gilmore stated he would not know if Ryback goes by means of some private points or if there’s one thing else happening, however there’s no excuse for posting that type of tweet. Booker then joked that perhaps Ryback’s NBA crew wasn’t successful within the playoffs.
