Source: RybackESPN has an interview with WWE Superstar Ryback. Here are some highlights:
Comparisons to Goldberg: "It's a great thing to be compared to somebody like Goldberg. So if we see a new guy come in and he reminds you of somebody else, you don't exactly take him in right away. I knew it was going to be a slow process, and it's been seven months, so it hasn't been that long, but we've already gotten away from the comparisons. Every once in a while we'll get some 'Goldberg' chants here and there but now they're drowned out by the 'feed me more' chants. I have nothing but respect for Bill Goldberg and what he did. He was the top dog in WCW back then, then came to WWE and had great success, but this is a different time now, and I'm a completely different animal than Bill Goldberg. We have some similarities, but I think as time goes on, people are going to see Ryback as his own man."
Rumored backstage altercation with Brock Lesnar: "Somebody told me about that, but it couldn't be further from the truth. I don't know where that came from. Paul Heyman is all about making money, he's a business man, and I wouldn't be surprised if he started the entire thing just to get people talking and see if there was any interest in it. It's definitely a match that I would love to happen. I don't know how long Brock is going to be around for with the WWE, but if the opportunity for us to square-off in the ring presents itself, I welcome it with open arms."
Dream WrestleMania opponent: "That's easy. One of my goals, and I don't know how many more he has in him, so we need this to happen soon, and that's Undertaker. He's the one man who is undefeated at Wrestlemania, and he's somebody who I've had in my mind for a long, long time. I would love to be able to step into the ring The Dead Man and to be able to scream "Feed me more!" in his face would be quite the honor."
Where the "Feed Me More" catchphrase originated: "That just happened. What can I say, I'm just a psycho for success. More is never enough, and I just always want people to give me more because I like to succeed. So I was out there facing one of the local athletes one week, and I always like to scream something after my matches. I just remember I didn't have anything to say, but I was wanting more than the local athletes, so I just screamed at the hard camera, 'Feed me more!' I was talking to Vince McMahon and to Triple H and to everyone in the back and to everyone in the world. I wanted everyone to know that I wanted more. The saying just caught on and took a life of its own. It was nothing that was planned. I never said to myself that I was going to go out there and make it work. It just happened, and that's how the best things usually come, and I'm very thankful for that."
Ryback also discussed WWE '13, his character getting over, who came up with his name, who he would most like to wrestle from the Attitude Era and much more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
