In a surprising turn of events, former WWE Superstar Ryback has declared his intention to make a triumphant return to the wrestling ring after a prolonged hiatus. The outspoken wrestler, missing from WWE since 2016, strives for a comeback, aiming to outshine Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Ryback recently announced his return plans on an episode of Ryback TV.
Drawing attention to The Rock’s return’s unprecedented social media success, the former Intercontinental Champion highlighted the significance of surpassing the record set by the Hollywood superstar. With The Rock amassing over 171 million views, The Big Guy set the stage for what he believes will be the “greatest return of all time” within WWE.
While Ryback’s return to WWE seems unlikely due to his outspoken nature, hopeful fans still hold onto the possibility of his comeback. Achieving numbers comparable to The Rock’s record-breaking return seems highly improbable for The Big Guy. This is due to The Rock’s global fame and unparalleled mainstream recognition in comparison.
It remains uncertain whether Ryback can genuinely surpass The Great One’s remarkable numbers. The bold declaration he made has yet to materialize into a reality capable of shaking the foundations of WWE’s social media presence. Only time will tell if his ambitious claims will translate into a social media phenomenon for the wrestling world.
Ryback sets sights on epic showdown with Goldberg in bold retirement match
Former WWE Superstar Ryback has declared his intention to make a triumphant return to the ring. He has taken things a step further by challenging WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg to a retirement match. Despite no official confirmation from WWE regarding such a match, the 42-year-old remains vocal about his desire to face Goldberg.
Whether Ryback’s challenge will be accepted by Goldberg or sanctioned by WWE remains uncertain. The wrestler’s determination and confidence, however, suggest a potential storyline that could captivate fans if it materializes.
However, both men have left on bad terms with the Stamford-based promotion. Therefore, the once-dream match will unlikely materialize. Goldberg last competed in WWE at Elimination Chamber 2022. Meanwhile, Ryback’s last outing for the company was at the Payback 2016 pay-per-view.
