Ryback spoke with Chad Dukes of 106.7 The Fan DC / CBS Radio while at WrestleMania Axxess. Here are some highlights.
Mark Henry: “No doubt in my mind that I can get him up. I think at the end of the night, when it’s all said and done, people are going to remember coming out of WrestleMania 29 is Ryback picking up Mark Henry over his head, marching around the ring, and 75,000 plus screaming, ‘Feed Me More.’”
His biggest goal: “It’s to take over the #1 position from John Cena and take over the company and I’m not shy about saying it. John, I respect him more than anyone, he’s a very hard working individual. He’s been on top for 8-10 years now and he’s been untouchable. I am the one guy that can touch him and I believe I can outsell him on merchandise, and I can do things he has not yet done.”
Nexus: “I’m the Al Bundy of Nexus, I think we’re still gonna have a run down the road.”
