WWE Superstar Ryback just released a lengthy statement which explains why he was sent home from Monday Night RAW … and even though he says it’s not about money, that’s definitely how it sounds.
Ryback updated his Tumblr on Tuesday with a post that says, “I was told to head home until we agree or not agree to specific terms and contrary to reports it isn’t over money or a bus that stuff was settled a while ago. It comes down to a major problem I have with not only WWE but wrestling in general.”
The wrestler goes on to claim he’s unhappy with lower card wrestlers making less than main event stars and doesn’t understand why they wouldn’t make equal pay.
“It blows my mind how in a sport which is pre determined from a company standpoint winners are paid so much more than the losers. Every single person who works for WWE from top to bottom is absolutely just as valuable as the next.”
He adds, “Every single performer for WWE sacrifices the same amount of time from home and their families and every single man or women goes out and does what they are told. Looking at this formula though losers turn into what fans like to call jobbers and their value decreases in the companies eyes and before you know it they get released. For what? For doing exactly as they are told!”
The 34 year-old says his release is very possible now, but he’s not worried about it — the wrestler claims he’s been smart with his finances and has other options.
