    ryback's machine persona

    Watching Ryback's most recent promo, it appears that he's slowly fading out his robotic mentality during his promos. I hope this trend continues as I think it's really hard to develop and expand a character with such a limited range of personality and emotion. Do you guys see Ryback turning more human(for lack of a better term) and do you think it would benefit Ryback in the long run?

    Any change to the character would be positive.

    I think they never should have had him talk to begin with (yes, I know as Shefield he was decent on the mike). Who cares if it was too 'Goldberg'. Goldberg has been gone for 10 years now. Time to move on and it's not like he would have been the first 'copy-cat' character....

    That was my favorite RAW opener in weeks. People have complained about how they have always opened with a promo, but if done right it's the best way to go.

    This, basically.

    I would have been perfectly fine with him not talking(Or speaking in a very limited fashion), or having a manager.

    The whole "Ryback Rules" phrase is even stupider than "feed me more" and his grunts and facial gestures are even more annoying now that Cena highlighted those quirks in his speil last night. Since he's turned heel it seems that the audience isn't as much into him either. His PPV loss record is beginning to hurt him too I'm afraid. If he loses to Cena at Extreme Rules then I don't see what more there is for him and losing will halt his quickly shrinking momentum even more. I'm almost expecting the unexpected and actually think that he might beat Cena though his title run will probably be short and Cena will win it back at the next PPV. I'm actually glad that they have let him talk though. Once you get past the theatrics he's actually fairly articulate and tells the story well. I don't know how much freedom he is allowed or if he is held to a strict script or not but he's not as bad as listening to someone like Orton talk.

    In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

    Yes compared to some Ryback is a genius on the microphone but he does still have a long way to go to see what works and does not work and this obvious attempt of the WWE to push "Ryback Rules" down our throats is blaaaa...frankly he is more interesting to me as of late since he has been talking and feeling out his exact heel persona...not exactly your average monster heel...

    From day one I have always thought where the hell does this character go, I liked Skip and looked forward to him returning, but I'm not a fan of the Ryback character. I hope he slowly moves away from it completely, I believe he has potential.

    A mute big powerhouse would have been a good move possibly even fire a manger with him worked for Umaga!
