Ryback is the true definition of an enigma at this point in his career. Whether that is the fault of WWE booking or not is completely up for debate, but the questions surrounding the direction of his career have been abundant.

Understand that he is a big, musclebound professional wrestler whom many purists of the sport cannot identify with. His move set is minimal and he will never give you a catch-as-catch-can classic.
