Conflicting reports have been published in the past several days discussing Ryback's backstage reception with WWE management. An exclusive source has told Wrestlezone that the latest report, alleging Ryback has heat and that he is dangerous to work with, is completely false. WZ was told Ryback is well liked amongst the backstage crew, including Vince McMahon himself having a lot of faith in him, and he is often chosen for overseas promotional work and dark matches because he is viewed in a good light.
The source went on to say the reports of any negativity towards Ryback were fabricated internal leaks to several news outlets, and they were coming from a person close to the situation, sent out under an alias. It is said the negative press for Ryback was designed to keep focus on Paul Heyman and CM Punk going forward, with Ryback being phased out of their ongoing feud.
The report was released in the days before tonight's Hell In A Cell pay-per-view, knowing it would create controversy and be a hot topic among the internet wrestling community.
