    Yeah, that's right. You don't want to give the fans the impression you've created a clone but you do want him to be similar enough for the fans to compare the two and anticipate a Goldberg-like run.

    He'd look a lot more bigger without the RVD-esque unitard.

    Are you kidding? It looks like that thing is about to burst due to his massive frame.

    I can dig it. I lived through Goldberg and hated it and I don't care to see it again. TERMINATER SINGLET FTW!

    Thinking about it again I loved Taz in ECW and he wore a singlet and he actually did FTW

We don't need to know much about RyBack right now, other than "holy sh*t, look how he just destroyed that guy", so they can let the character and the personality and so on develop later.

    I do like the "feed me more" line though, and him announcing when it's time to to finish his opponent. Overall I'm waay more impressed than I ever expected to be. To go to this from being Skip Sheffield is a helluva leap, and I'm hoping it all works out.
    I agree totally. It's a fine line.

    Albert being in Japan gives him a gimmick - and Vinnie Mac LOVES giving people gimmicks.

    Really impressed with Ryback so far and I hope they continue to build this undefeated streak for a long time. He needs to beat some jobbers for a few more weeks before moving onto some bigger names and even beating some guys in 2-on-1 handicap matches.

    Ryback putting down Henry by Summerslam sounds about right

    i don't see the hate for tensai, i think him and ryback have had real solid starts.

    rybacks attire is due to him having a terminator gimmick back in fcw which got em the name ryback. But he doesn't need to arm pump as much. He needs to use the lariat as much as he can since i haven't seen anyone else in the roster that can actually give one mean lariat stan hansen style
