Ryback joined 4th & Pain this weekend on 106.7 The Fan, co-hosted by Redskins defensive end Adam Carriker and former wrestling announcer Chuck Carroll.
Ryback talked about his forthcoming match with Mark Henry at WrestleMania. When asked, he said he thought he could take him in an arm wrestling contest.
As far as the Goldberg comparisons, Ryback thinks the chants of “Goldberg” have fallen off a bit from when he first debuted and that only a few smart mouths in the stands will start it now. He says fans yelling “feed me more” have overtaken the Goldberg chants.
Ryback isn’t bothered by the comparisons and actually thinks it’s a positive thing. Ryback says he likes Goldberg a lot. He says he’s done something similar to Goldberg’s streak in this era, but acknowledges they are two completely different entities.
He also talked about his stint as a high school football and baseball player.
Believe it or not, he was a kicker in addition to being a halfback, fullback and middle linebacker.
4th & Pain is the only pro wrestling show hosted by an NFL player and a former wrestling announcer, turned weight loss champion, Chuck Carroll. It airs weekends on 106.7 The Fan in Washington, DC and weekdays at noon on 4thAndPain.com.
