Over the years we have seen some invincible characters, who just can't (almost) lose in a clean way and always end up with the victory, no metter who the opponent is. supermen like Hogan, Cena, Taker and Goldberg (in WCW) have made their carreer based on that concept.
now, I have a strong feeling that Ryback is our next superman. if we take a look over all of his matches (almost a year, since the start of the "ryback" character) we will see nobody could beat him cleanly. he have squashed multiple times almost all top heels possible, includind Del rio, Ziggler, Cesaro, Miz, Jack Swagger, etc. he should won all of his matches against CM Punk (the toppest heel) and lost them only due to interferences etc. bottom line: like him or hate him- he looks unstoppable.
after Wrestlemania it will be a whole year he haven't suffered a clean defeat (if he isn't jobbing cleanly to Mark henry, what I don't believe can happen).
so what do you think? is Ryback gonn'a be the next invincible character?

Not really sure how I feel about Ryback. He still has like a 70 percent winning percentage but has lost over half his pay per view matches, including the last five in a row. Worst push ever if you ask me. I am starting to think Vince pushed him as a monster just to feed him to main eventers like Punk or put over guys like Shield.
SCS, the problem was that they booked Rock/Punk months before it happened, even basically booking it at Raw 1000 on TV, five months before the Rumble, and they were hell-bent on booking that match no matter what. So Cena was put with Punk in a feud through the fall, which Punk would dominate, which would aid two long-term storylines, Punk's reign of doom and Cena's year of fail. A good plan. Then Cena got injured and they lost their minds, throwing Ryback in there because they had no other credible main event faces. Once Ryback lost once, for some reason they had him lose again even though Cena got over his injury. It was a mess beyond all messes but at least we got the Shield out of it.
I still think his character is salvagable. Invincible characters like Ultimate Warrior lost high profile PPV matches (sometimes) but with interference. His character still stayed strong and dominate.
I think that ship has sailed...he'll be lucky if he gets a good I.C. title run based on the way things have been going.
I could be wrong...but I doubt it.

Speaking of Ryback what do you guys think of this WWE 13 CAW of him? I personally thought the DLC version of Ryback was weak. His shoulder were too wide and his midsection was not accurate. I downloaded this version of Ryback and made adjustments to his attire.
Always predicted he would turn out to be someone who didn't amount to much. People even chanted Goldberg, and I don't know which is the worse part of it- being called a clone of someone, or being compared to a flash in the pan.
How was Goldberg a flash in the pan?
Ryback has lost 5 matches. In only 2 of those matches was he pinned. In all of those matches, more than one person was involved in the finish.
God, he is booked so terribly. I have no idea how anybody can take him seriously as a main eventer after being made to look so weak.
when he won his slammy i wonder if he pissed anybody off with his owen hart quote of "enough is enough and its time for a change".
one month later cena (the guy he was reffering to replacing) was tossing his ass outta the rumble.
either way it seems they are making him "pay dues" now to see if he can handle it like a pro.

oh, I'm sorry
did a promising push
suddenly get changed
for the benefit of other wrestlers?
that almost never happens
Goldberg was still a draw, long after the streak. Got any evidence to back up that statement?
I would argue that WWE only recently screwed Ryback when he got beat by Rollins at Chamber. I am sorry but Ryback and Sheamus should have swapped spots. Sheamus is a made guy and Ryback isn't exactly. This is not 98-00 when you have a strong performance win or lose and you are a made man. WWE is in a time where the men are made by beating their way to the top and staying there. And WWE will wonder why a Ziggler WWE or World title run will fail other than "Ziggler doesn't have it." (I have my BS flag ready to throw when I hear that by the way.)
Flash In The Pan = Someone who was big only for a short period of time. That describes Goldberg to a T.
A lot of WWE fans (which I assume you are) don't remember fondly of Goldberg's WWE run and I must say that neither do I particularly, but he had a good stretch in WWE where he was made to look anything but invincible. His angle with HHH was absolutely huge.

When he wrestles a big match, he loses. When the hell was the last time he won a big match?
The misconception exists Todd because the WWE ended up losing money that year.
The bulk of that may have to do with outside projects but I don't believe Goldberg lived up to projections.
Mind you, I also feel like that result at SummerSlam hurt him.
The PPVs were hugely successful, it flies in the face of any idea that Goldberg failed.
Throwing Kane in the mix ruined it.
