Source: Digital SpyDigital Spy has an interview with Ryback, who was promoting this Sunday's TLC pay-per-view. Here are some highlights:
The cancellation of his match with CM Punk this Sunday at TLC: ""It's unfortunate. I believe I'm going to be the WWE champion for many years to come - a staple of the WWE. It's just delaying the inevitable. I tend to focus on the positives. When I destroy CM Punk I want him healthy. I know that time will come, but right now I get the next best thing and that's feeding on The Shield and handing their guys their first loss in their first pay-per-view match, so I'm very excited about that."
Working with former Nexus teammate Daniel Bryan again: "I just had a match with him at one of our WWE live events and it was a lot of fun. We're all different styles, essentially, me, Kane and Daniel Bryan - especially Dan. It's great tagging with him and we have our history in the past, and he's one of the few guys I get along with outside of being in the ring. It's gonna be a lot of fun."
What he hopes to accomplish by WrestleMania 30: "It's great to talk ahead. I focus on one day at a time, but my goal is to be WWE champion, World Heavyweight Champion. My goal is to not just replace John Cena but blow John Cena out of the water. I'm very vocal about that. I want to beat John in all aspects of this thing - merchandise, fan base - because I believe I can.
"That's what our company - the WWE needs somebody who's not going to be intimidated, who's not going to be afraid. I'm that guy. We haven't had that. We need somebody. John's not going to be around forever.
"I have nothing but respect - I think he's one of the hardest-working guys in the history of this company but my goal is to be my best. And I believe my best is better than him. And he knows that too, and there's a friendly rivalry there and I look forward to seeing how I do against him in the coming year."
Much more is contained in the interview, including Ryback discussing his success this year, when he will receive another title shot, his favorite type of match, if past injuries will hurt his growth, the future of pro wrestling and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
