If he's going to sandbag a finisher, why would he sell a clothesline? That wouldn't make sense. It's being done to make Ryback look like he has more than one move to finish a guy.
"And again Ryback, who usually uses his big finish where he marches around the ring to put the man away switched gears in the middle of this match and used a clothesline, another weapon in Ryback's arsenal". Pretty much sums this whole thing up.
