On the night after WrestleMania, RAW was to be one of the most chaotic shows in a very long time. Many things made this show great, and one of those things was Ryback hitting the Shellshock on John Cena. This left the internet wondering whether or not this was a full heel turn, or just a hungry challenger seeking gold.
A week removed from this event, the answers are beginning to become apparent. On the April 15th episode of RAW, Ryback cut a pre-recorded promo that was played on the titantron. This promo was in similar style to those of the late 80s and early 90s. Ryback explained his actions thoroughly without uttering his infamous “Feed Me More” catchphrase. The segment shed some new light on the former Nexus member and brought a new perspective to the way many see Ryback.
A more serious approach showed that Ryback means business and will continue to be a top star in the company. He stated that he’s watched Cena’s back on six separate occasions and went as far as to say he is the biggest threat Cena and his championship reign have ever experienced. The ‘big match’ is definitely in place for a match at Extreme Rules and people will be curious as to see whether or not Ryback will de-throne the WWE Champion. Could this be the rise of Ryback as one of the top heels in the company? We will just have to wait and see.
