I'm not a big Ryder fan, but I do like the guy for his passion and persistence. I know many of you have/had strong feelings about Ryder and are still sore about his burial. But I'm curious about what the thinking is regarding the all too short Ryder phenomenon. Two questions in particular:
1. Did the WWE punish Ryder for getting over on his own?
2. Was Ryder given the U.S. Championship to satiate fans and quell the "We want Ryder!" chants? Basically, did they toss the title at him just to shut the fans up?
And a third question:
3. Was Ryder put together with Cena to get Cena over with the smark portion of the audience who regularly booed him?
