- As noted, former WWE Superstar Ryback revealed on his podcast, Conversation with the Big Guy, that he has officially changed his name to Ryback Alan Reeves from Ryan Alan Reeves. He noted that the name comes from combining his former first name, Ryan, with Silverback. He said that it isn't fair that wrestlers spend so much time creating their brand and are told that they are responsible for their brand, and then can't use their identity when they leave. He said that there is a big difference between advertising himself as "Big Guy" Ryback and Ryan Reeves.
