WWE News: Vince McMahon Reportedly a Huge Fan of Ryback

One thing is for sure: with his forceful, dominant performances, Ryback has emerged as one of WWE's few breakthrough acts this year. 

The former Nexus member has been tearing through WWE, crushing ridiculously-named jobbers left and right on Raw and Smackdown, presumably on his way to bigger and better things. 

In this week's (subscribers-only) Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer provides an update on the up-and-coming star, noting that he has one very valuable supporter backstage: WWE owner Vince McMahon.

Meltzer also mentions that the company is aware of the comparisons to Bill Goldberg, who got over massively in the late '90s with a similar winning streak. Ryback has even found himself besieged by "Goldberg" chants during his recent appearances on TV:

Vince McMahon loves the way the Ryback gimmick is going. There have been some who don’t like the crowd chanting “Goldberg” and the rule is to edit it off the show on Smackdown, but they can’t do that on PPV or Raw.

Whether or not he can emulate Goldberg's success remains to be seen, but it will be interesting to see how Ryback's career develops from here.
