If the measure of a man is what he does with power, then measuring the capabilities of a Superstar as commanding as Ryback may prove difficult.
Crushing his opponents with palpable intensity, the 6-foot-3, 291-pound monster has the strength and focus of an android that was designed to annihilate. Ryback approaches every challenge with brute force and a no-nonsense demeanor that exudes supreme confidence in his own abilities. Operating under the mantra of “start full, finish empty,” he doesn’t just possess the skills to destroy a rival at any time. He carries himself as if that result is never in doubt and prepares himself immediately for an encore, hence his famous war cry of “Feed Me More.”
How can anyone measure such an intimidating beast in comparison to the rest of his WWE competition? Few words may deem suitable as he starts to make his mark in the ring by leaving a long line of battered opponents in his wake. The fledgling behemoth proved his intimidating presence can make any competitor back down, from formidable toughmen like Mark Henry to living legends like John Cena. In 2015, after battling his way through WWE for three years, The Big Guy defeated five other competitors in an Elimination Chamber Match to earn his first title, the vacated Intercontinental Championship.
One only needs to observe how Ryback’s fellow Superstars study him to understand his ruthless reputation. They stare in awe as if they’re watching disaster footage, looking on in shock as Ryback’s ferocity both impresses them … and leaves them wary of becoming his next meal.
