SummerSlam "Plant" Speaks Out

Joey Ryan, who was used as a "plant" at WWE's SummerSlam PPV this year, and was one of the audience members seated at ringside during the Sheamus vs Mark Henry guard rail spot, has recently done an interview for Maniaweekend.blogspot.com. Ryan is referred to as the fan who "oversold" the Henry spot, which many people noticed during the PPV. Below are highlights from the interview:

"I am so comfortable being an extra at WWE that I don't even get nervous or 'walk on eggshells' or whatever the cliches are," Ryan said. "I just try to relax and have fun with it. I have ton of friends there and honestly a lot of the newer talent came into wrestling watching PWG or ROH DVDs and know me from the indies and they come up to me and tell me what big fans they are of mine.

As far as anecdotes go, CM Punk came up to me at the Raw after SummerSlam and told me the boys popped huge for my 'Home Alone sell' during the barricade crash. He said he told them that he figured I just don't give a fuck anymore. That's entirely untrue though. I love being a WWE extra and getting to see friends and work with new people and the money I make over three days there isn't bad either.

And yeah, maybe I did oversell the spot just to pop the boys but I don't think I was being disrespectful. I don't think anybody even noticed it unless you knew it was me already. I was just trying to have fun with it. Wrestling is so much better when you're having fun."
