Source: Top Rope RadioMike Buda recently interviewed Barry Ryte on The Top Rope Radio show, which airs every Tuesday from 3-5pm CT. Ryte, who wrestled as Dan Barone against Ryback on the June 29th Smackdown, discussed Ryback's reputation, the difference between training with WWE and more. Here are some highlights from the interview:
On Ryback's backstage reputation: "One thing that I want to point out is I always like to stay in touch with wrestling so I read a couple dirt sheets, and a lot of the dirt sheets would say that other WWE wrestlers would claim that they wouldn't want to work with Ryback because he was too stiff or too unsafe. That was completely false. He was extremely nice, extremely careful and cautious on what he was going to do to us and everyone liked him backstage. That is a false accusation on Ryback."
On training with WWE and TNA: "I definitely learned way more from William Regal than I did with D'Lo Brown. I think William Regal was more in general trying to help us whereas D'Lo Brown could have been 'you know, do this,' but was giving more general advice like 'get bigger, get stronger.' William Regal said, 'be different, wrestle this way rather than how everyone wrestles this way.'"
