When he was initially released by WWE, Ryback went into a state of depression, where he resorted to heavy consumption of alcohol. He stated that Luke Gallows showed up at the bar that he worked at in Las Vegas, gave him a $30 tip and advised him to purchase a book called, The Secret. The Big Guy stated that this particular meeting helped to change his life and get his career back on track. Shortly afterwards, he was picked up by the company again.
