I will always associate The Ryback with endless portions of meat. His gimmick in WWE largely revolved around feeding on jobbers, which helped him develop the popular “Feed me more!” catch phrase. One great story that remains stuck in my brain is Daniel Bryan explaining how The Ryback was completely baffled and frustrated by the menu at Panera Bread and had no clue how to make an order there. A guy like The Ryback just wants huge piles of steak on his plate, after all.
Well that was then, and this is now. The Ryback revealed on Twitter that he’s now vegan:
7 weeks Vegan and bodyweight is 292 lbs. I just keep seeing improvements and energy increasing even more. Conditioning is at a very high level cardio wise and don’t have any intentions of eating animal or dairy products. Lab work completed yesterday, so will see where we are at pic.twitter.com/W5ImV2c6Ad— The Big Guy (@Ryback) November 11, 2020
Say it ain’t so! For all of you meat loving wrestling fans out there, at least you still have the meat castle that is Braun Strowman to hitch your wagon to.
But for those of you who are worried that The Ryback has completely changed since his WWE days, don’t fret, because he’s still talking trash about Triple H:
I never heard those chants, was too busy listening to the buildings roar and shake with my Trademarked Feed Me More. What’s next for Ziggy Michaels? Sitting in Gorilla working under Pussy Paul’s Developmental Program? https://t.co/sa6sQYHunJ— The Big Guy (@Ryback) November 8, 2020
Maybe the Ryback should stick to tweeting about diet and exercise, because most wrestlers in Paul’s developmental program can run circles around him in the ring.
The Ryback has mentioned multiple times this year that he’s interested in wrestling for AEW, but I guess they haven’t called him yet. Do you hope to eventually see the Big Vegan Guy return to pro wrestling on a national stage?
