Ryback Thanks Las Vegas Fans

WWE Superstar Ryback got a huge reaction from the Las Vegas crowd last night on Monday Night Raw. The fans chanted “we want Ryback” when he wasn’t in the match, and his “feed me more” and “Ryback Rules” catchphrases while he was in the ring. The “Big Guy” took to Twitter last night to thank his hometown crowd: 

KILLAM: Even for a hometown guy, that reaction was pretty insane. Even more so when you consider he’s somewhere between heel and neutral, and his tag team really hasn’t been elevated much past under-card the past few months. I’m a Ryback fan though, so it was nice to see him treated well by his people, and I’d like to see that momentum keep building. Also, if you’re wondering, Ryback deletes all his Tweets, which is why this appears to be the only thing he’s ever said. 

Possible Bound for Glory Match

TNA Bound for GloryWhile nothing has been set in stone for TNA’s October PPV, one of the matches being talked about for Bound for Glory would see James Storm team up with Sanada, taking on the Great Muta and Yoshihiro Tajiri. That would certainly be in line with the ongoing story, as the former X-Division champion recently turned on his mentor (Muta), aligning himself with “The Cowboy” James Storm. Tajiri – the former ECW/WWE star – worked the last New York Impact Wrestling taping. As Bound for Glory will be taking place in Japan at Korakuen Hall, it’s expected that the local Wrestle-1 promotion will have a heavy involvement in the promotion and build for the PPV. 

TNA’s current deal with Spike TV will expire before October, however it’s been said that Spike is willing to continue hosting Impact Wrestling briefly, providing a new deal can be reached with another network, in order to help make the transition easier on everyone. There’s also the option that they could agree to a new deal.
