Ryback will be making his first post-WWE appearances in October. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, The Big Guy is charging $4,500 for indy appearances in the US. Promoters looking to book him for multiple dates are getting a better deal, but promoters without strong reputations are being charged $5,000.
No word yet on TNA talks but Ryback is in negotiations with New Japan Pro Wrestling. The talks are down to agreeing on a price and a number of dates now, so it’s possible he starts in the near future.
Ryback will be using the name “The Big Guy” and has been announced for WrestlePro events in New York in October and WrestleCade in North Carolina the next month. The Northeast Wrestling promotion announced just last night that the former WWE IC Champion will be at their 8/25 event in Pomona, NY.
