  • How strong is really Ryback?

    WWE has been pushing Ryback as this monster and alot of people are comparing him to wrestlers such as Goldberg because of his size but also because he looks like the love child of Rob Van Dam and Bill Goldberg.

    For being pushed as this monster, is the guy really that strong?

    The guy lost to Daniel Puder in an armwrestling contest and he cant lift Tensai and he cant lift Paul Heyman. Compare his lack of strength to monsters like Goldberg and Lesnar who did extreme feats of strength.


    I am sorry if this thread is in the wrong forum.

    Yeah he looks strong. But I don't think he is as strong as Henry or lesnar. Cena is Probally stronger than Ryback.

      Yes, he can. Tensai sandbagged him. They Heyman one I don't know. He was probably carrying an injury or something because I'm fairly certain he can lift Paul Heyman. He's probably not as strong as Henry though, maybe not Cena. Obviously he does have a fair amount of strength though - look at him.

        I'm sure he's plenty strong. I mean, I wouldn't fuck with the guy. But I don't think his strength is in the category of the names already mentioned.

          He's not as strong as he looks, I don't think. But I don't the Heyman and Tensai references tell us much. Apparently he was sandbagged and Heyman really isn't that big, he can lift him.

          I don't think he's as strong as Henry. And I'm not sure he's as strong as Sheamus and Cesaro either, those two are pretty impressive.

            He's certainly not as strong as they push him as being. He's clearly strong, but a guy like Henry and maybe even Cena can own him in the strength category.

              the only guys in the company who i would say are stronger are:

              -big show
              -henry
              -Big E
              -lesnar

              and MAYBE has strong has cena, since while cena's not has big cena seems to be even stronger than he actually looks.

              and this is hardly a knock on ryback.

                  Henry isn't as strong as they bill him. "Strongest Man in the World"? Than why is it that Kurt Angle is the only Olympic Gold Medalist in prowrestling? Henry went to the same games as Angle (1996) and didn't medal. I've hated his gimmick from day one because of this. How are you the strongest when there are three other guys wearing a Gold, Silver and Bronze medal? I know it's petty but seriously, we aren't stupid!

                      How they bill him isn't what we're talking about though. I don't think there's too many people that will deny he's the strongest in the company. And besides, it's a gimmick. How many wrestler's gimmicks were 100% true? The boogeyman isn't really the boogeyman, ya know.

                        Because if you know anything about amateur wrestling, technique wins over strength any day.

                        And this is such a futile question to base this thread off of. It's all speculation. We can't see him in the weight room.

                          He executed the move perfectly on Tensai one week before on SmackDown, it's an awkward move to do. It's not as simple as just lifting someone up in a firemans carry.

                            Plus Tensai didn't sandbag him there. The reference to that one time on RAW is pointless - and if he can do it on Tensai then he can do it on Heyman.

                              Strength isn't all arm wrestling...some guys have great upper body strength, some lower body, some arm, some back, some overall core (torso/abs/back/chest) strength, etc. Body types are different too.


                              Ryback's setup for his move is VERY awkward. Ryback is strong. You don't get that build from not being strong. However Goldberg may simply have awesome core strength and overall fitness. Goldberg's intensity and overall athletic ability ads to his impressiveness. With Brock, it's a bit of a different intensity, but he is/way athletic that was built from his am wrestling days.

                              I think Goldberg and Brock are overall better pro-wrestling performers and move around the ring a lot better. Brock sells moves very well too. The fallback with Ryback is that he's is so easily compared (and built/booked) in similar fashion to those two, and those two didn't have any major botches in their build up booking that would come off as making them look weak. Goldberg was actually very good at adjusting his moves in mid execution when he needed too. I think that was a testament to his core strength and athletic ability. Brock simply made things look too easy and has the size and overall wrestling ability to do so. Ryback is strong and good, but simply a notch below both in terms of wrestling ability, athleticism, movement and performance.

                              It's unfortunate that Ryback had some botches with Tensai and Hayman. But it is an awkward move. And like MANY pro wrestling moves....

                              ...it still takes two. Youtube search: Undertaker vs Hogan worst chokeslam ever...I don't care how strong you are, if you don't work with your opponent, many moves can come off horrible.
