Arda Ocal (@arda_ocal) of The Score Television Network and the Baltimore Sun spoke with WWE superstar Ryback (@Ryback22). Highlights:

– Discusses the release of his new downloadable character (DLC) for the WWE ’13 video game.

– Talks about his frustrations during his previous stint in WWE as Skip Sheffield, a member of Nexus: “I was going by a name I did not choose and did not like. It was not me.”

– Addresses suspicions that his “Feed Me More” chant came out of his season on Tough Enough where his cast-mates constantly remarked on his gigantic appetite: “It’s actually not, but it pops me that this has become my catchphrase.”

– Provides his opinion on the incessant Goldberg comparisons that plagued him during his undefeated streak: “It never bothered me. I knew that I would set myself apart from him as time moves on.”

– Finally Ryback gives his thoughts on who he’d like to face at Wrestlemania 29.

    Everybody probably knew this but I didn't know Ryback was Skip Sheffield. I was hoping Skip Sheffield would become better after bewing sick and undergoing surgery. I'm glad Skip is back and healthy as Ryback.

      He's quite recognisable.
      He also bears a striking similarity to "Silverback" Ryan Reeves.

    Despite the threat of furious reprisal from many of the IWC, I have been waiting for Arda to Interview Ryback for a while now. I have to say that I was as much of a skeptic of Ryback as everyone else and didn't much enjoy his *cough* Legendary bouts against stan stansky and arthur rosenberg and the likes BUT I have been finding myself enjoying him more and more recently. I notice his move set is increasing in size too- albeit very slowly.
