BoD Evening Update

Ryback in the Doghouse?

Multiple sources have told Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com that Ryback has major heat on him for several reasons. One reason is that he has not improved in the ring, with some feeling that he has actually regressed. Another reason is that he has been injuring people in the ring, with CM Punk as his latest casualty. Punk was hurt this past RAW and as a result, was written off this week's Smackdown (Johnson wrote that he heard a rumor that Punk was injured after RAW on Tuesday but said he was awaiting confirmation on a second source before reporting it as legit). And finally, Ryback has heat on him from the office due to his poor attitude during company events. One source believed that he wouldnt be surprised at all if Ryback was dropped as a Paul Heyman guy.

    Anytime I heard Ryback talk he comes off like an asshole. I thought it might be in character but maybe not.

  2. Fuck Shawne Merriman. Throw as much money aa possible at Tim Tebow, repackage him as Kurt Angles original dorky 3 Is character and watch the money pile up. That would be the funnest character to boo, EVER!!

    ReplyDelete
  3. I've been saying for months that Ryback looks like the least safest worker in the history of wrestling. I find it hilarious that they keep pairing him with Punk, who's probably one of the more banged up guys on the roster.


    Seriously, they put Punk in a TLC match with Ryback immediately after he recovered from knee surgery, less than a month before his match with the Rock.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Oh TNA. You can't even send your Champ to the top promotion in Japan, because you fucked THAT up, so a third-rate one will have to do.

    At least it's not All Japan?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Hey! That's precious cargo, buddy - take it easy, you shaved ape!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Could he actually play an effective heel though? Dude seems way too nice

    ReplyDelete
  7. Yeah WWE loves doing that for some reason. They did the same thing with Edge which probably led to his early retirement.

    ReplyDelete
  8. He does seem like a legit nice guy. Have him play the dorky, pretentious, moral moral authority figure like Angle did and hed be gold.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Nothing says PG like a roided up woman beater. Lights out!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I love it, Tebow is a freak athlete like Angle and would learn quickly.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yea, no doubt hed be good in the ring and hes smart enough to "get it."

    ReplyDelete
  12. They ought to pull a Rude-Warrior where he works with someone who can legit mess him up to teach him manners. Unfortunately there aren't a lot of legit badasses to my knowledge.

    ReplyDelete
  13. The 2nd coming of Goldberg is an unsafe worker?!?! What do you call it when something is the opposite of ironic?

    ReplyDelete
  14. well, uh, if they turn Ryback face, I can think of one guy who could probably mess him up and is besties with heyman.


    or, you know, just send him down to nxt till he gets his shit together.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yeah, I was just coming to correct that. It's a shame he's not on a full-time deal where they could do a program.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Knowing WWE they would try to give him some ridiculous NXT name like Winston Jefferson.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Isn't that ironic?

    See? More proof that these news sites are full of shit. Ryback couldn't fit in a doghouse!

  19. He is on the doghouse. Like Snoopy.

    I loved it when Paul Heyman would go to kick the football, but that pesky CM Punk snatched it out of the way.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Don't you think?

  22. Stranger in the AlpsOctober 25, 2013 at 9:17 PM

    How about an angle where a remorseful Ryback constantly refers to himself as "stupid" and repeatedly abuses himself as punishment? A character ALL the kids can relate to.

    It's like rain on your wedding day.

    It's a free ride, when you've already pain.

    It's some good advice, that you just didn't take.

    Does Alanis Morissette see the irony here?

    He sure is a merry man, though.

  28. Merriman has two wellness strikes already. That was fast.

    I think her career is dead enough that I'm satisfied.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ha. Im embarassed for having laughed out loud at this.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Just stick Ryback in a tag team. He's not ready to be a top guy and may never be. And that's fine. Give him someone like Mark Henry, Big E Langston, Antonio Cesaro, or some other big dude and let them be a bully tag team. His bully character isn't bad, he's just too one-dimensional to stay in the main event

    Don't be. Word play humour is never not funny.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I always forget that he could legit shoot on someone.

    ReplyDelete
  37. What would the 3 Ts be? I assume they wouldn't copy the gimmick that closely but if they did, I mean.

    ReplyDelete
  38. It's possible their deal with NJPW has fallen through, and Muta's brand is probably better over there than AJPW, anyway. Go fig, this specific part of the story (AJ defends elsewhere while TNA crowns an "interim" champ) isn't bad.

    ReplyDelete
  39. "Tebow, Sandow. Sandow, Tebow."

    ReplyDelete
  40. Everyone forgets that.


    I love ADR, but man is he overlooked/ignored/not that about.

    ReplyDelete
  41. TNA's strategy is reaching out for more WWE retreads? Hasn't this been their strategy for the better part of a decade with no tangible results?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Tebow wouldn't sign with the WWE no matter how much money they offered him.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Tebow has shown absolutely no interest in pro wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  44. It's just like fantasy booking of CM Punk, except with a guy and title nobody cares about.

    ReplyDelete
  45. They need fresh talent. And anyone with even half a brain is going to try out with the WWE first. The best ones will at least have been given a shot. There's a big difference between getting some unknown who got released from developmental vs. bringing in RVD or Jeff Hardy. It's stupid to avoid a guy just because he may have appeared on a few episodes of NXT.

    Or being a good NFL QB.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I thought some snafu when the Dudley's where IWGP tag champs brought about the end of TNA and NJPW's working relationship, but i'm far too lazy to look right now. And yeah, Wrestle 1 SEEMS viable, I didn't realize it was Mutoh and most of the AJPW roster.

    ReplyDelete
  48. funny that you know who he is and which title he's holding

    ReplyDelete
  49. And? That doesn't mean I care or will watch. I know who Justin Bieber is too. That doesn't mean I'm going to his concert.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Whenever anyone tells Ryback stories, he always comes off sounding like a meathead idiot. No surprise that a guy like that would get in the doghouse for various stupid things.

    ReplyDelete
  51. For some reason when I think of Tim Tebow in WWE I think of Dustin Runnels circa 1998.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Theology, Teamwork, Trust

    ReplyDelete
  53. Why don't they job Ryback to everyone in the midcard like they do to everyone else.

    ReplyDelete
  54. correction: it's like RAAAAAAAAAAAA-AAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIII-AAAAAAAAAAAAAAINNNNNNNNN!

    As I said elsewhere, this is smart on the part of TNA. Let AJ wrestle in different promotions. They might even be able to get an interesting DVD out of it.


    That is what the WWE should have done with Punk, but they got Nash involved.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Charismatic e-Negro Jef VinsonOctober 26, 2013 at 5:51 PM

    Didn't he do that to Sin Cara when he called to stop the match? The shots he was hitting him with looked kind of stiff.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Charismatic e-Negro Jef VinsonOctober 26, 2013 at 5:52 PM

    Nah, He'd be the Blue Blazer. (before he dided) or Backlund's character.

    See? Now I picture him dressed like Robin Hood with his Merry Men around him singing.

    Substitute Turnovers for Trust and I believe you.

    ReplyDelete
  60. All of his shots look stiff.


    And ADR and Sin Cara know each other back in Mexico (number two and number one face, respectively) so maybe they have a bond from there? Or maybe there's animosity...

    ReplyDelete
  61. Yeah he's a TNA diehard.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Y'know...Tim Tebow in the WWE would...ah, never mind. Guy makes no sense to me whatsoever.
