Zack Ryder talks Cena, Punk, Ziggler, Santino, and more

From Greg Johnson:

WWE star Zack Ryder recently sat down with Maurice Kneisel of for an in-depth interview to discuss his Youtube show and WWE career to date, here are a few highlights:

Kneisel: ….Speaking of Cena – he and CM Punk did a lot for your career by supporting you when you started the show.

Ryder: Absolutely! Cena, CM Punk, Miz, Dolph Ziggler – there’s so many guys who, when I first started my YouTube show, would retweet my link. That was a huge help since I did not have many followers, it got me so many more views. Without those guys I don’t know how successful the show would have been. There are other people, like Curt Hawkins, who started a YouTube show and it just didn’t take off. Not because it wasn’t good, it just didn’t get the viewership.

Kneisel: Do you think comedy characters like Santino Marella or – no offense – you can win the big one, the World Title?

Ryder: Santino, right now, is on top of the world, he’s the United States Champion. But I don’t think I’m a comedy character. Am I funny, is my YouTube show funny? Yeah, sure! But go back and watch my match at TLC versus Dolph Ziggler – that wasn’t a comedy match, that match stole the show. I think I have the potential to win the big one.

Kneisel: ….Speaking of the best episodes – what’s your favorite scene from the show?

Ryder: My favorite scene? (laughs) I mean, there’s so many. One of my favorites, off the top of my head, is definitely my training montage that I filmed for the Nassau Coliseum, Long Island show in June, I think it was episode 17. Kind of like a Rocky-style video montage. It was pretty ridiculous and that was one that took me forever to do. But in the end, it was great, one of my favorite things and I had a lot of fun.
