Ryback on Winning His First Title In WWE, Defending Against The Miz and Big Show, Facing Mark Henry


– This week’s sitdown interview with Michael Cole features WWE Intercontinental Champion Ryback, as seen above. Below are highlights:

* Cole asks how Ryback’s life has changed since he won his first title at Elimination Chamber. Ryback talks about how he’s had ups & downs in WWE but the title win was a culmination of all his hard work. Ryback called it a moment he will never forget and one he’s thankful for. Ryback says fans not booing him when Daniel Bryan handed the title over to him was a big moment.

* Cole asks about defending against The Miz and Big Show at Battleground this month. Ryback says The Miz has essentially been a thorn in his side since they worked Tough Enough together years ago. Ryback says Miz is a former WWE Champion and you can’t take anything away from him. Ryback called Big Show one of the greatest big men in WWE history but he’s not better than anyone else. Ryback brushes off Show trying to discredit him last week. Ryback says his life revolves around WWE and Big Show saying he doesn’t deserve to be here, Ryback takes it personal. Ryback says he knows Big Show doesn’t like to be man-handled but Ryback is one of the few who can man-handle him.

* Ryback talks about facing Mark Henry on this week’s SmackDown and says losing to Henry has been eating at him since WrestleMania 29. Ryback says he’s going to hit Shellshocked on Miz and Big Show at Battleground but it’s all going to start with Shellshocking Henry on SmackDown.
