Open Challenge at Survivor Series, Ryback Comments on Vince/Goldberg

Posted by on Saturday, November 23rd, 2013


- James Stewart of Boston’s CBS affiliate spoke with Ryback to promote Sunday’s WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view. Ryback revealed he will be issuing an open challenge at Sunday’s big event. He said:

“The open challenge is for anyone out there. I’m kind of a bully. I like a good fight and I like picking on people. If it’s someone bigger than me so be it.”

Ryback also commented on Goldberg and Vince McMahon:

“He [Vince] is the Roman emperor, and we are all his gladiators. And I want to be the biggest, baddest gladiator.”

“I have a great amount of respect for Bill Goldberg, but I’m not going to beat around the bush and say I wanna be best friends with the guy. I’d like to face him in the ring. I’ve heard him say he’s not happy with comments I’ve made about him, if he has a problem with it let’s settle it at Wrestlemania.”

    JEEbus! No offense to “Ryback”, but WWE – PLEASE shut UP about bringing GOLDBERG back to face him at WrestleMania. You wanna insist on a GOLDBERG-”Ryback” match, fine. Do it at Royal Rumble. But TRUST me – Those “Goooooldberg” chants during “Ryback” appearances are NOT because fans want to see GOLDBERG come back to face him. It’s because fans saw from jump street that Skip Sheffield’s character reboot was such an obvious attempt to capitalize from GOLDBERG’s enduring popularity. GOLDBERG at WM XXX? The only match that truly makes sense is versus THE UNDERTAKER. During GOLDBERG’s one year in WWE, the only two major superstars he didn’t face were Kurt Angle (What a match THAT would have been!) and THE PHENOM. THAT’s the “dream match” GOLDBERG fans want to see. So if you’re wanting to sell PPV buys buys off a GOLDBERG match, THAT’s the one that’s going to do it. Let “Ryback” take on Sheamus, or Big Show – either would be a great match. Let Lesnar take on the Apex Predator Randy Orton – THAT would be a terrific match. Lesnar doesn’t desrve the UNDERTAKER match, selfish as he’s been about his contract and performances, which are raw now anyway. GOLDBERG vs UNDERTAKER at WM XXX? THAT would be LEGENDARY.
