Report: Ryback in the 'doghouse' for doing Goldberg's spear and jackhammer

Oh this is just rich.

Although the so-called "dirt sheets" are always going to run reports like this that may or may not be true, especially considering the nature of pro wrestling itself, but it's always entertaining to wonder while passing the information along, coupled with the standard disclaimer, of course.

Ryback is apparently in the doghouse.

Yes, has been doing plenty of jobs over the past year but it's never been expressly stated that he's got heat with anyone at WWE. Now, though, after jobbing to Big Show during last night's (Nov. 18, 2013) episode of Monday Night Raw in Nashville -- including having Big Show kick out of his Shell Shock finish -- word has come out that THE BIG GUY is indeed in the doghouse with the powers that be.

The reason why, according to the Wrestling Observer:

Regarding Ryback being in the doghouse which we talked about on last night's Wrestling Observer Radio, it appears to be a situation where he went out a week ago and did the spear and jackhammer, Goldberg's spots, and didn't get permission to do it first.

Oh boy.

There have been rumors that WWE has been hopeful a match between Ryback and Goldberg could be put together for WrestleMania 30 next year. That may still be the case but if Ryback went into business for himself in the midst of the company trying to work out a deal with Goldberg, that would obviously cause a big problem.

So here we are. Now it's up to you whether you believe it or not.
