    I honestly don’t get Ryder, his character is honestly annoying to me, he isn’t good in the ring and I don’t think he’s too special on the mic but he was still given a shit ton of time on TV and a push earlier this year while people like Kidd took a backseat for most of the year even though he is far better then Ryder. Ryder needs to evolve from just a youtube show and keep himself relevant and if he wants the fame make the fans want him more and not just want him in his hometown.

      No matter how much people want it….Tyson Kidd will never be a top guy. He is a mechanic. Pretty much a jobber to the stars. He will beat lower card guys and possibly win a IC/US title. When he comes up against anyone that has any stock or value…..he will get squashed. I know people will say….”Well he beat Tensai early this year.” My reply would be, “I said people with any stock or value. Tensai’s stock and value went out the window after about a month.” Thats just my opinion

      • mrchopper

        I actually think Tensai is pretty funny when they let him be. He’d probably have quite a good chemistry with Bryan, but there’s no way they’re getting paired together any time soon.

          Team No Train?

      • wwetnadudez

        I agree with you, I personally don’t even want Kidd as a WHC or WWE champ because he can’t look the part but he does deserve something for his talents, maybe a IC/US title run like you said or maybe just a simple Tag team title run?

  • Kris Mystery

    Sheesh… Give it a break Zack Ryder and quit yer bitchin. You’re not that good and you will never get anywhere with such a lame ass gimmick. Woo woo woo that !!!!

    • Bushwald Sexyface

      Glad someone finally said it.

    Zack Ryder’s new phrase should be “BOO HOO HOO”

    • http://SEScoops.com/ siberian_skies

      No kidding. And if he keeps crying, he’ll be “future endeavored” soon.

        Lets hope so.

    I was expecting the photo of the knee to be worse than that.

    Zack Ryder needs to team with Curt Hawkins again when he gets back and drop the gimmick, they were a good tag team that could have been great

  • DigitalWWE

    Regardless if Ryder is doing too much whining. You can’t deny that he is right. WWE had something with him and they just dropped it.

    • Kris Mystery

      Yes they did have something with him… a flash in the pan who happened to be moderately popular on youtube. WWE milked as much exposure as they could out of him and he is now back where his limited ability and poor gimmick belongs.

      • http://twitter.com/RodCeb79 Rodrigo Ceballos

        How do you ever expect him to be more than a flash in a pan when the idiotic company here works for keep jobbing him day in and day out The guy was selling merch and was getting an amazing response from the live crowd so he is 100% correct when he says they have been dropping the ball with him

        • Kris Mystery

          He couldn’t have been selling as much merchandise as you think otherwise they wouldn’t be jobbing him out. WWE is a business and businesses are in it for the money. If he was making them a ton of money he’d be much more exposed than he is now. They made their money off him and it ran it’s course.

          • Thomas Wing

            That is not exactly accurate. There has been instances before were merch was moving…..and the crowd loved him and yet WWE still did their best to bury him. My example is CM Punk circa 2006-2007 and Mr. Kennedy/Anderson

          • Kris Mystery

            In the case of CM Punk … he was nowhere near as over then as he is now. And as far as Mr.Kennedy goes… they are not going to push someone they knew wasn’t going to be with the company much longer and up until this time he was pushed just fine.

            Thats not exactly accurate. That has been many instances where the merch was moving….the crowds loved him and yet WWE still made every attempt to bury him. My example is CM Punk circa 2006-2007 and Mr. Kennedy/Anderson.

            This is true. But if he was selling and losing what business wouldn’t want a profitable jobber? That’s every greedy managers goal in life. To get a great employee wrapped around your finger. Who works for next to nothing but generates a lot of profit.

          • DigitalWWE

            Actually Ryder was beating Cena and Punk merch for a while.

          • http://www.facebook.com/tomwing77 Thomas Wing

            Yes it was. CM Punk was mis-used very early in his WWE career. He was also VERY over back then too. Also Kennedy actually never had a real big push. I don’t call a US title victory a push either. Getting a program with a top guy and getting beat by that top guy is also not a push. He had those with Shawn and Undertaker. If you read some of Kennedy’s interviews, he stated that he never wanted to leave WWE. Randy Orton didn’t care for him and at the time he had enough clout with the suits to get him gone. The “backdrop of death” that supposed nearly crippled Orton on Kennedy’s last night doesn’t look no different that any other backdrop I’ve ever seen. Triple H didn’t think he had it(wrong) and Orton(the current champion at the time) didn’t want to work with him so that was why he was let go. Not because he wanted to leave.


    Zack who?

  • ItsProgressNow

    lol if 2012 sucked, does he spit or swallow?

  • Ryder fuckhead cocksuker

    ryder u suck dick u dog, go away cunt

  • Peter Griffin

    Dammit Ryder just drop this stupid gimmick and get serious and team with Hawkins again and join the tag team division and I’m sure both of you guys can succeed and become tag team champs

  • mrchopper

    Erm, that’s not surgery. It’s acupuncture.

  • cm2012

    My thoughts on Ryder are this… he had his run, because he did something relevant that most people caught on to. I admit I was one of those people that caught on to the fad… the problem with Ryder is NOT that he isn’t the best wrestler, and it’s NOT even his gimmick. It is the fact that he seems to expect to be able to continue to coast on what worked for him last year.

    If Ryder wants to continue to be relevant, he needs to evolve and change. He needs to look at Dolph Ziggler, CM Punk, and even John Cena (I’m not a fan of his but he falls under what I’m saying). He needs to see what they do… not to GET the fans attention and support, but how to RETAIN it. Ryder CAN get support and response, but he needs to know how to retain it. Otherwise he is going to go nowhere, and people are slowly going to start hating on him even more than they already are now.

      I agree with 100%

  • Fathead

    I said this a few times before.

    Zack had something, and it could have worked longer then it did.

    But, too quickly, he tried to push zero talent douches like The Big O in his podcasts, once people were watching.

    He should have gotten himself over first, rather then trying to get his buddies jobs.

    And now his 1 dimensional gimmick is stale.

    You dropped the ball Zack, by trying to run with more then the 1 you were given.

  • Vince

    Funny that the IWC say that Zack Ryder sucks were the same people bitching about featuring him at this same time last year.

  • http://twitter.com/JamieEvsxx JamieEvsxx

    the caption for Punk’s photo made me lol…xD…but about Zack, I think he should try a new character or turn heel to get over or something if he wants to get noticed and actually keep his push going since the Z! True Long Island Story stuff and everything has run it’s course…I do like Zack Ryder but his bitching about the non-existant push won’t help him, he needs to try something new to get himself noticed and that should be pretty easy for him because if he found one way to get himself over then surely he can think of a plan B right?…=/
