Feel and look your best. Real supplements for real people. Looking forward to this event March 9th in St. A post shared by Ryback Reeves thebigguyryback22 on. Sign In. WWE Headlines Videos. Instead, we recently got to talk to former WWE Superstar Ryback Reeves and he talks in detail about his past, present, and future in the squared circle.

Since then, he's kept himself busy by writing a motivational book, launching a hugely successful podcast, kicking ass on the independent wrestling scene, and unveiling a nutritional supplement range which is taking off in a big way. Ryback was kind enough to recently devote an hour of his time to talk to me about all of that and a whole lot more.

As I'm sure you're aware, rumours are swirling that you could be heading to All Elite Wrestling, so I wanted to start by asking is that something you could see happening and have there been any official talks?

Right now, my main priority is just getting healthy. I just had another shoulder scope yesterday which was my second one in two years. I've had ten stem cells procedures and I've got the eleventh coming up on February 11th. That, right now, is my main focus. I want to get as strong and healthy as possible and that will take a few months and then I can evaluate where I am physically and decide what route I want to go with wrestling.

I have no doubt that no matter what I choose, it will be the right decision. After leaving WWE, I was hurt first and foremost and I've essentially saved my career and been blessed by the technology that we have with stem cells where I've avoided having five discs fused and a shoulder replacement. I was in a bad way so it looks like I'm going to have a second chance to actually have a new body and do what a lot of performers wouldn't have had the opportunity to do.

Where that's at, I don't know, and it honestly hasn't crossed my mind yet because I need to get to a certain level health wise before I know I can push myself at a high level again. It sounds like you were in a bad way when you left WWE so just how beaten up were you? It was really bad. Things didn't go as planned for me because when I left, I was in pain for probably the last two years [in WWE] with my back. Everyone has back pain and I just assumed it was due to travelling and hotels and riding in rental cars and aeroplanes all the time.

I always chalked it up to being a muscular thing when in reality it was a disc compression ordeal from doing the Backpack Stunner for over ten years.

I was doing the move on live events regularly with lb plus guys on my back so it's like when you're taking the ass bump on the Stone Cold Stunner but you have the extra guy's weight on your back as well. I was told early on by William Regal that I probably shouldn't do that move on a regular basis because it was going to end up hurting me and it just never did but I didn't end up doing it on a regular basis for a while.

I kind of just forgot about it and before I knew it, when I came back as Ryback, it was just a move that I was doing as it was different. Essentially, my discs were completely worn thin and the back pain was just adding up and getting to be too much and anybody that's ever had back pain can attest to this; it starts changing the way you think a little bit in the fact that it's not fun being in pain all the time and I always dealt with pain fairly well as it was one of those things.

But then, I just couldn't take it anymore. And when I left, I was frustrated over numerous things, but how hurt I was was the reason why those other things became more important to me and it was a combination of a lot of things of me wanting to let my contract run out but being met negatively and being threatened essentially where I just said, 'Okay, I'm taking control of my future in my own hands. I thought my body would have gotten better leaving and I got a nose surgery and my ear fixed.

I could never breathe through my nose my entire career from having a broken nose my first year and I couldn't hear out of my left eardrum from getting my eardrum broken my first year in Deep South Wrestling. So when I left while I was still under contract, I got those fixed. So then, for the first time I could breathe through my nose and hear out of my left ear and then I thought my back and shoulder were just going to improve on the road but they didn't.

They went the other way and I essentially was turned into a year-old man. There were days I would wake up, get out of bed, and fall to the ground. I couldn't even sleep at night when my back was hurting; it was a deep core pain inside my spine and it started running into my right leg and I wasn't even wrestling. I took some time off to get the nose and ear fixed but my right leg went completely numb, as well as my entire side because there were nerve issues going on with the disc.

I saw two different back specialists and they said, 'You need to have a five-disc fusion. You're done. I got cortisone shots from my time in WWE in my shoulder joint which I highly recommend nobody in sports or in regular life ever get and hopefully that stuff is outlawed eventually because it doesn't do any good, it just masks pain and it caused a whole other host of problems and ate away all my cartilage in my shoulder joint.

Luckily, though, I found a really good stem cell doctor here in Las Vegas called Dr. William Baumgartl and we're going on 11 procedures and he's literally given me a brand new body. I've got to go see him tomorrow actually and it's pretty cool with what we're able to do now, but it was really bad.

I didn't know how bad it was initially so I never really played it up and you've got to remember, with WWE, you don't want people to know how hurt you are typically because it could affect things. Especially when I left, spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on my supplement company and getting that going.

It cost a lot of money and it's all paid off but that sort of wrestling I always tell people on the independents that there's a shelf life of how much money you can make which I'm still grateful is great to this day.

I needed to take advantage of that. I've never once had to touch any of my savings or anything. I continuously earn money and that's always something I try to always keep moving forward and, you know, with this process, ideally, I probably should have stepped away from wrestling altogether and not wrestled at all the first two and a half years and directly focused healing myself.

Wrestling in the amounts that I have still has probably not benefited me but it was more of a financial and a mindset thing. I've taken the last four months off as I finally listened to my doctor and I'm doing my final procedures and not lifting weights for two months and letting my body heal and regenerate enough to see if I can make another go at it at a high level.

I've had to learn patience over the last two and a half years because it is an extremely serious matter. It's more than people will ever understand, and I've talked openly about it the last year and a half, but most fans just have no idea of how serious it actually is. I'm glad you're healing up. You've alluded to Feed Me More Nutrition and I'm sure that's helped a lot but can you tell us about what that entails and the benefits of checking it out?

That's something I'm extremely passionate about. The goal was to do that while I was active in WWE and it was something that was not able to happen. I left WWE and I wrote the book, and I have intentions of writing more books in the future, but in doing the podcast, which I love doing every week - "Conversation With The Big Guy Ryback" - because it allows people to actually know my personality and understand my sarcastic sense of humour and whatnot, but the nutrition line is something for me that is a long term business.

I believe in life, there's a good way to make money and a bad way. And for me, the supplement industry has always been filled with a lot of lies and deception and there are a lot of products out there and the majority of them are using artificial sweeteners and colours and things that don't actually help and in fitness, don't tend to go together.

It was created early on from bodybuilding when we got these performance-enhanced athletes or bodybuilders and they were promoting supplements in, I don't want to say a scam, but it wasn't what was really going on and that entire industry was kind of built around lies. I have always used supplements since a young age to benefit me and to go along with proper nutrition and workout plans and the options out there especially with WWE and with the Wellness Program, which I can't say enough good things about, I had to start creating my own supplements because I didn't trust what was out there and it's always been something I've been fascinated by.

I want to be a good role model for kids. I believe that something that is missing today as far as the decisions adults make and obviously with wrestling fans, I've been very honest about my drug use when I was 20 to 24, which was very mild but it did exist, and it was having a mindset of seeing other people around me and wrestling: 'Oh, I have to do that too if I want to continue to be the biggest' but it's an adolescent mindset and it was the wrong mindset and I learned from those mistakes.

All of my successes come without that, and I want to be able to show people that this stuff can truly benefit your lives when used properly and Feed Me More Nutrition is is using more natural ingredients and not putting harmful ingredients in there that don't truly go along with health and fitness and giving people an option.

It's entirely different but DDP Yoga and what Diamond Dallas Page has done is essentially with a lot of wrestling fans given them an introduction into taking care of yourselves and I am doing that in a different way with nutrition and supplementation.

While I make the crossover into the health and fitness industry with my wrestling audience, it's been a really fun process and I'm enjoying the journey and the growth of all of it. For me, it was a way to make money while also doing something I'm passionate about and believe in in a good, healthy way. I wasn't sure for quite a while what was going to happen with my wrestling career here with my injuries because I will not sacrifice my health as it's my number one priority. I had to do what was best for me in supporting my brand and my business while still keeping myself active financially as everything that I was doing was being put into my business during that period and it all paid off.

I'm in a great position now with everything. It's work from morning to night when you own your own business from being customer service to just top to bottom. I always tell people that owning a business, you have to manage everybody else's problems and their problems become your problems and you have to learn patience and there's good days and bad days but it's, at the end of the day, it's very rewarding because it all falls on you and what you put into it.

Things couldn't be better right now; we're growing, week after week, month after month and I've got a distribution phone call this Friday with a major distributor in the United States which is what I've been working for with this and getting this into every brick and mortar, and it's a cool process.

I'm very thankful for everything. Looking back on your time in WWE, do you have any regrets about how Ryback was handled by the creative team and did you find yourself clashing with them a lot as you left. Everything happens the way that it happens. I think there's a large portion of people out there that aren't happy with certain circumstances and situations and we can relive the past all we want but, for me, a lot of valuable lessons were learned out of that.

At the end of the day, I played every role that was asked of me to the best of my ability. I have a very large worldwide following and I'm in a very good position. If those things didn't happen the way that they did, I may not have been as motivated or hungry to push myself mentally into learning about business during that period and listening to the different books on car rides to educate myself on investing and these other things.

I may not be in the position I'm in now had things just been rosy and great and gone my way at different points and times. Now, I have all this other stuff and wrestling is still there and if I'm healthy enough to have another opportunity, I've got my mind now at 37 and have a new body which is a really cool and that never existed before but we're seeing it like with Rey Mysterio as well as he's as good as he's ever been and is another guy who has had a lot of stem cell procedures.

It essentially gives you a new body when it's done properly and it actually works. I have a lot of things to be grateful for over that. Obviously, there were many, many frustrating times at many levels which I've talked about and been honest about for my fans so they understand why I've made the decisions I've made but when I left, it was a very easy decision.

It was a day I'll never forget in St. Sitting in a building I'd been in many times, I knew it was just time to go and I had tried communicating up until that point. I had a contract and a lot of money offered to me but I believed there were other issues going on.

I never had that discussion with Vince about how important those things were to me but I had the contract and changes made and we came to a standstill over a few things. I knew I was pretty much on my way out so we had changes made to the contract just to be difficult essentially with how they were handling things on their end.

When I saw the writing on the wall with the booking and what was going to start happening which had already started happening that whole month prior, I decided to leave with the value I still had rather than let them run it down, pull me off TV , and then fire me. I took matters into my own hands, I went home, sat out my contract. They tried to freeze my pay and I then went and had my nose and ear fixed which required them to pay me to the day my contract expired on August 8th.

They wanted to fire me publicly the day prior but I had not been medically cleared yet and held on to that and I waited to get cleared until my contract expired so that they could not publicly fire me. I then wished them the best, and that video is out there, on their future endeavours and because I was one step ahead the entire process, I left on my own accord and saved my career and health in the process. It was very interesting the final months there but, as I said, sometimes it's good to get away and had I not and signed that contract, there's no doubt in my mind that I would have been forced to retire because I wouldn't have gotten an MRI on my back and shoulder because you don't get that stuff while you're there and I would have been forced to retire and it would have been too late for stem cells to save me because there would have been no disc left at the rate I was going and how I was pushing myself.

How much does Aspartame and Sucralose harm you? These artificial sweeteners are used in virtually all diet products. Because I suffered from blackouts when I was standing still. Scary times, indeed. Every single morning, I woke up feeling groggy and fatigued with blurry vision.

He spoke with SI. I feel like part of it was he was his unhappiest with the company when he was working with me, and I kind of got tied into all of it. Although Ryback did receive support from his colleagues, like future WWE Hall of Famer Chris Jericho, he was severely disappointed that the company did not back him. That always bothered me that they never tried to clear that up.
