On Monday Night Raw, Ryback ran out and attacked the Wyatt Family as they were involved in a match with the Social Outcasts. There is a chance that he could be officially added to the stable, as WWE had Heath Slater filming a backstage interview claiming that the Big Guy was definitely a part of their crew. It would be an interesting move and would give Ryback a story line to work with.

A rather interesting question was asked of Ryback during a recent interview. The former Intercontinental Champion stated that he would not completely rule out a potential reunion of the Nexus stable that WWE did a couple of years ago. Former members (Wade Barrett, Darren Young, Heath Slater, David Otunga and Curtis Axel) are still on the roster. Daniel Bryan and Bray Wyatt would not fit in nowadays.

In case you missed the latest episode of Smackdown, Kalisto defeated Ryback to advance in the tournament to crown a new world heavyweight champion. It is now being said that the reason why WWE did that is because there are those backstage that felt that the tournament matches were a bit predictable. The creative department wanted to have at least one upset in the first round.

During his podcast interview with Steve Austin, Ryback revealed that his contract with WWE was set to expire next year. From the sound of it, he has every intention of signing another deal to remain with the promotion.

For years now, people have been wondering who WWE will eventually use as a replacement for John Cena as the top guy in the company. Ryback is an extremely confident guy. He recently revealed that he has informed Vince McMahon that he would be a great choice to replace Cena some day. Ryback stated that he was not going to be another Cena. He was going to continue to be himself. He feels that is enough to carry the company.

Wrestlers know that when you are on the road, it is really hard to find a good gym in the various cities that WWE tours. A solution might have been found. Management is currently planning a partnership with Tapout where the two companies would launch gyms in various markets.
