Hungrier than ever

Some might consider Ryan’s attitude surprising considering the high expectations hoisted upon him at the beginning of his career and his relatively swift exit from the WWE spotlight.

“When I first started with the WWE, things moved very fast for me, which was a good and bad thing,” he explained. “I was in a very privileged position long before I was ready for it. I could have gotten the ball and ran with it, but I don't feel like I did.”

The bitter taste of his first opportunity only made Ryan hungrier than ever to return to the big stage. As a regular on NXT, Ryan has made his goals abundantly clear to every opponent given the displeasure of standing inside the ring with him.

“My opportunity will come again, and when it does, nobody is going to take it from me,” he vowed.
