Ryback talks the evolution of his character
Jan 26, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck
ecollegetimes.com posted an interview Ryback ahead of Sunday’s Royal Rumble PPV event. Here is an excerpt:
How much say did you have in the evolution of Ryback?
I was very vocal in that, actually. A lot of people don’t know that I was Ryback before I was Skip Sheffield down in the developmental territories. It was a name I came up with and created, as far as when I was away from the WWE. “Skip Sheffield” was presented to me by Dusty Rhodes. It was something I don’t regret ever having happened because it did happen [and] that’s what got me to the WWE initially. I cannot tell you enough how glad I am to not be doing that right now. What you see now is me. I’m a very intense individual in real life in everything I do. I set goals and I attack them with the intensity you see on TV.
