Ryback explains why he left WWE

In the first episode of his podcast Conversation With The Big Guy, former WWE Intercontinental champion Ryback revealed that money was not the reason he walked away from WWE as he had a 3-year, $1.5 million contract.

Ryback said that there were several aspects of life in WWE which he did not like, including the constant lies he was fed, the opportunities he was not allowed to undertake even though others were doing the same thing, and the expensive travel expenses. Despite all the negativity, Ryback said he was thankful that the WWE gave him the opportunity to perform and left without burning any bridges.

He noted that most of the lies he was told were said by Vince McMahon and when the new contract was presented to him, he did not want to sign it and offered a revised one. On his last day, he gave them what he wanted in his contract, knowing that they would never accept, and then asked to be taken off television. He said he never spoke to Vince McMahon on his last day and told WWE Senior Director of Talent Relations Mark Carrano that he’s out.

The podcast is available on SoundCloud.
