Ryback On What He Would Do If He "Pulled A CM Punk" In MMA, Says Punk Match Was A Career Highlight

Recently on Conversation With The Big Guy, former WWE Superstar Ryback talked about what he would do if he "pulled a CM Punk" and got decisively defeated in a professional MMA fight and what his proudest moments are from his WWE run.

During the podcast, Ryback quipped that if he "pulled a CM Punk" and suffered a resounding loss in a MMA fight, he would return to pro wrestling as Skip Sheffield, the dim, southern football player.

"That would be my backup plan if I ever went into MMA and just totally pulled a CM Punk and got my ass kicked. I would just come back as Skip Sheffield. 'My mind's f--ked up,' and then, opening match, sell some merchandise, 'yep, yep, yep, what it do?', f--king Over The Shoulder Boulder Holder here and there, and f--king wave to the kids."

As for his proudest moment in WWE, Ryback admitted that outside of winning the WWE Intercontinental Championship, main eventing WWE Hell In A Cell (2012) with Punk was his proudest moment, as it showed him he could succeed in professional wrestling. Ryback went on to say that he did not like their matches together in general due to Punk not wanting to put work into the matches.

"My favorite, I think for me the proudest moment outside of winning the I.C. title, and the boys in the back waiting there and getting the round of applause, outside of Gorilla [position]," Ryback added, "I think my first Hell In A Cell match with CM Punk because that was my first main event outside of doing live events, working them. And which was thrown together last minute, obviously. And I never liked any of our matches, but that was more on him not wanting to put effort into doing it and that's the truth. And I was fully developed at that time and could have done anything."
