The Phoenix News Times has a new Q&A online with Ryback. Below are the highlights:
If he feels overexposed after the big year in 2012: Not at all. I feel 2012 was just a warm-up as far as I’m concerned. There’s so much more to Ryback than people know yet. We started at the very basic level and we built patience with people.
Becoming WWE or World Heavyweight Champion: You know, I just did my goal board for 2013 [with] 13 of my goals for this year and becoming the WWE and World Heavyweight Champion are my main goals. So no, the chase is great, but for my ultimate goal and what I want to accomplish here in the WWE, being WWE champion is something that’s going to be a big part of that. And I believe it’s going to bring me to a whole other level. Its a responsibility that I welcome with open arms.
Stealing the show in a match against The Shield at WWE TLC: Daniel Bryan is one guy that I’m pretty close with in the WWE, him and Wade Barrett. But to be a part of that match with Kane and The Sheild…I firmly believe that those three men [are] extremely talented and when they eventually go on their own, all of them are going to be a big part of the WWE for many years to come. So to go out there and have that kind of match with everyone, it’s a tremendous honor. And it was a very physical hard-hitting match. And that crowd in Brooklyn was hot. It felt good to be a part of that.
Goldberg: I was a fan of his. I think was unbelievable and exciting and fun to watch. But I truly, truly love this and have a passion for this and want to be as great as this as I could possibly be. I love money and want to make millions upon millions of dollars, and I’m going to. But at the end of the day, I’m going to be in WWE. I’ve said it at the beginning, I want to be part of WWE for the rest of my life. And I don’t know Bill Goldberg personally, so I don’t know exactly how he feels about wrestling and whatnot, but I can just tell you how I feel, and I think at the end how I feel is what’s going to be what separates me from Goldberg ultimately when my career is winding down. He was a huge draw and hopefully I can be as big if not bigger of a draw as he was in his prime. It motivates me and I look forward to outdoing him in any way possible. It’s never been a negative thing in my mind.
