Ryback Talks About His Rumored Altercation With Lesnar, Getting Over & More
By Michael Bluth

WWE superstar Ryback recently spoke to ESPN.com to hype the new WWE '13 video game. Here are some highlights of what Ryback said about:

Getting Advice From Legends "Everyone has advice, it’s up to me to cipher out the good from the bad and to take what can work for me. I keep a pretty close-knit crew of guys I take advice from, guys like Triple H, Arn Anderson, Michael Hayes, and William Regal are the top four guys who I deal with on a regular basis and who I have open ears for at all times. Traveling and whatnot, Daniel Bryan is a guy who I like to travel with when I travel with others, but I also like to travel alone. I like to have my own time in order to gather my thoughts, but when I travel with somebody, it’s Daniel Bryan."


His Rumored Backstage Altercation with Brock Lesnar: "Somebody told me about that, but it couldn't be further from the truth. I don't know where that came from. Paul Heyman is all about making money, he's a business man, and I wouldn't be surprised if he started the entire thing just to get people talking and see if there was any interest in it. It's definitely a match that I would love to happen. I don't know how long Brock is going to be around for with the WWE, but if the opportunity for us to square-off in the ring presents itself, I welcome it with open arms."

His Character Getting Over: I knew all along that this was going to happen. I’m very confident in myself and I’m very thankful for everything that has happened. It takes time, sometimes, to get things going, but I knew fairly early on that I was on the right track. I remember I was wrestling a fine local talent named Benny Camer, and when I clotheslined him, I flipped him back, and the reaction I heard from the crowd that night just from clotheslining him, I knew right then that we were on to something good here. It took a little bit of time for the people to digest and get with it, but hey, it’s all worked to a T. I’m very thankful for how far I’ve come, and I look forward to being a big part of WWE for years to come."

His Dream WrestleMania opponent: "That's easy. One of my goals, and I don't know how many more he has in him, so we need this to happen soon, and that's Undertaker. He's the one man who is undefeated at Wrestlemania, and he's somebody who I've had in my mind for a long, long time. I would love to be able to step into the ring The Dead Man and to be able to scream "Feed me more!" in his face would be quite the honor."
