WWE rumors over the past few months have surrounded the relationship between the WWE and Ryback. The Big Guy was getting frustrated in his role with the WWE and spoke out about it. The WWE ended up sending him home and Ryback has not been seen since, although he has remained outspoken on social media the entire time. Ryback took to Instagram today and delved into the WWE rumors, basically saying that they are true and he is now finished with the WWE.
Ryback’s exact words were that he was finished conducting business with the WWE now and that he will launch his own website on Monday called feedmemore.com. He said that there will be a clothing line, a motivational book, and Feed me More nutrition supplements. Ryback then said that he would be wrestling a full schedule and gave out his booking email address. That last statement is the proof that the WWE rumors of Ryback’s contract ending are true.
The WWE rumors of Ryback’s eventual release came to a head after Ryback released a brutally honest blog post on his Tumblr account. This took place in May when Ryback ripped into the WWE for basing pay on who wins and who loses, especially since the winners and losers are just playing the roles that the WWE gives to them. He said that people who lose matches are just as valuable as those who are assigned to win them.
“Every single person who works for WWE from top to bottom is absolutely just as valuable as the next. The winners cannot win unless the losers go out there and agree to lose to them.
“Looking at this formula though losers turn into what fans like to call jobbers and their value decreases in the companies eyes and before you know it they get released. For what? For doing exactly as they are told!”

The points that Ryback made were all honest, but the way he made the comments probably ensured that he would never return to the WWE. The company doesn’t like people breaking kayfabe in ways that draws attention to the fact that wrestling is scripted, although the WWE has made a big point to let fans know that the wrestlers are actors playing roles and do not represent what the publicly traded company may believe in.
Ryback just ripped the WWE for their payment practices, and on top of the concussions lawsuit filed by dozens of former wrestlers, was just more bad publicity for the WWE. The company smartly ignored Ryback and moved on without him.

As for Ryback, he thanked all the wrestlers that he competed against in the video, although he made a snide comment about wishing the WWE the best in their future endeavors. That is the exact phrase the WWE uses when they fire someone. With Ryback and Cody Rhodes both openly dismissing the WWE, it looks like there are a number of wrestlers unhappy with the company.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Cody Rhodes openly blasted into WWE writers after his release. In the message, Rhodes said that neither of the main writers seemed to care what the WWE wrestlers thought, with one chasing after NXT Divas and the other was just ignoring all the wrestler’s comments.

Cody Rhodes has since added a number of high-profile matches on the indie scene since his WWE release, including two against Kurt Angle. As for the WWE rumors of Ryback’s future, there is a good chance he could end up somewhere like TNA Impact Wrestling, or Japan, both of which could use a big man like Ryback to plug into important roles.
