Was Ryback Released?
Jan 12, 2014 - by Andrew Davis
We received a number of emails overnight asking whether WWE Ryback had been released from the company.
The short answer to that is no, but why people began asking is a bit of a longer story.
Ryback regularly engages fans in Twitter in a way meant to upset them, since he’s a heel. Last night was no exception, since he was bragging about giving Dolph Ziggler a concussion and thanking fans for “making me rich”, claiming he sold 750,000 t-shirts in 2013.
As he continued writing on Twitter, Ryback noted that he was pulled over by a police car that thought his GPS was actually a cell phone. After some time, he noted that he was released.
When Ryback wrote released, he meant that in a way that the police car had let him go about his business, not that WWE had released him.
Shortly after people began responding to the release comment, Ryback wrote that his Twitter was hacked and then deleted all the Tweets on it.
So, it was a case of a heel being a heel and then fans misunderstanding what he was writing. He’s still with the company.
