Basically that’s what we’re supposed to the buy into once we accept Ryback as someone that matters, right?… Except I hate sporting competition. This is why I watch professional wrestling. If I wanted sporting competition and win-loss records and other equally fake/unimportant stuff like that, I would watch MMA, and then I would watch Football, and then I would watch Baseball, and then I would go to Buffalo Wild Wings and kill myself. I don’t want to be reminded that ‘legitimate sporting competition’* exists while watching my weekly 3-5 hours (counting Smackdown) of fake/artistic fighting.
Sports entertainment that focuses on the sport is almost as boring as the real thing.
